Now that it's finally not freezing in my unheated garage I've been adding the stuff I bought last Black Friday! In the past couple of weeks I've added my LOD Destroyer Bumpers, Diabolical Slipstream, Tuffy center console safe, Hothead Headliners (though I did that earlier, using blankets and running my heater) plus lots of little things that make this mine. I'm now figuring out what I want to do to the engine and suspension. I also have my LOD rock sliders to put on yet!

Looking great! How’s your stock suspension handling the extra weight of the bumpers?

I'm currently researching how to best upgrade my suspension. I'm not having any issues just yet. I'm still not done adding things and I've not loaded it completely up. I'm trying to get in front of any issues though. It came with the tow package if that helps.

Does anyone know if that means my springs are different than JLUs that didn't come with the tow package?

Right now I'm looking for a good deal on Rubicon takeoff springs & shocks.

I like the looks of the Slipstream. Can you still put the freedom panels in the back of the jeep with the Slipstream in place?

Tow package doesn’t add different springs/shocks, just the hitch and aux switches. I have a Rubicon and am (mildly) concerned about all the weight I’ll be adding and how the OEM Springs will handle it. I haven’t installed my bumpers yet. Actually, I threw my back out on Easter Sunday lifting the Rock Hard front bumper while moving it into the shed. I’ve been out of commission for the past three days so it’ll be a while until I get these bumpers installed.

Did the same thing today! Then put the soft top on for the summer. I hate that damn thing.

I'm really a fan of these wheels. Do you know how much heavier they are than stock, and is the +25mm offset enough or do you get tire rub at full lock?

Bought something for my jeep. Found this on OfferUp here local. $25

Not a bad find. I needed a dial style torque wrench and couldn’t pass it up. CDI brand.

My booty CoolTech mic holder copy.

I really wasn't trying to be THAT cheap - I thought I had another method in mind but when that failed I needed to get it done for a trail ride and didn't have time to order the actual product.

You can see extra holes from trial & error!
