Why did we name the Jeep Grover? My wife of just under 22 years passed away in February from a battle with ovarian cancer. 4 months later, I was ready to see if another woman would be interested in a old, fat, bald guy. Surprisingly to me, I found one much sooner than I expected. Dating with COVID restrictions led to a lot of talking and getting to know each other, like she had an old Grover muppet to keep her company. We ended up marrying in 6 weeks and moving her into my house, we came across several other Grover stuffed muppets in a chest of hers. She has a metallic green Ford with Kermit stickers on it that I started calling the Kermit car. Since I had just bought the Wrangler in Ocean Blue, it just seemed to fit.

2020 JLUR that I had the dealer install 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers on Fuel 20" rims and running boards in place of the RubiRails. Otherwise stock.

Since then, I've only added a few things like a Bulletproof cell phone holder, Flag decals for rear side windows, Rigged Ridge parachute cord grab handles, and some stickers like that for the Hellfire Jeep Club.

I have enlisted a shop in PA to install a 2.5" AEV DualSport RT suspension system, Warn Elite bumpers (front and rear), Warn Zeon 10S winch, RockSlide Power Steps, Falcon Nexus 2.2 Steering Stabilizer, & a Teraflex Adjustable HD Spare Carrier. No date set yet for install, but pics will follow.

Grieving started with the diagnosis years before her passing. Everyone grieves differently because deaths aren't the same. Yeah, I was very broken for a very long time. I hope that you never go through and experience what I did.

Thanks, Kirk. Losing the wife sucked. Just par for 2020. God got me through it though. Got the Mt. Zion recommendation from someone on this forum, did some research and they seem to be worth the drive. Dropping the JLUR off tomorrow at 8 AM.

The guys at Mount Zion Offroad did an incredible job. Can't say enough about the quality of work and service and responsiveness. The Z Automotive Tazer came in broken, so I skipped it and left with the AEV Procal handling the 35" tires and pressure. The winch and bumper install with the Baja Design lights were nothing short of amazing. Yeah, they will get more of my business. The Power Tank 10 lb tank was nicely installed on the rear roll bar. Pics later. But ready for weekend wheeling.

You should be a fan of Mount Zion. You are the one that turned me on to them. For that, I thank you so much! They are everything that you mentioned they would be.

Had to give the lift and other stuff a test just days after getting it back. Peter's Mill Run with Maryland's Jeep Club this past Sunday. Good run! But the 35s are looking tiny with the lift though.
