Doing a great job, do you have a target completion date or deadline? And what’s left to do?
I'm wrapping this massive project up this weekend. Took Wednesday through Friday off this week plus 3 day holiday weekend. Plan to wash, dry, clay and wax her in the morning and finally drive it for the second time after 2 months. Only item I can't do is differentials (5.13 gears, aluminum covers, skid plates). Waiting on Quadratec to send me the gears. Also waiting on Grizzly hydraulic shop press for pressing bearings on/off. I've been wanting one just couldn't justify it till now. It shipped today after 2 month delay. Another small item is Bartact front seat covers. Rear ones came quickly from Quadratec, but front ones took 7 weeks???? Recieved them today. They were another rear set, without my red inserts and were for a JK. Guess I'll be waiting longer. I thought I was nuts investing 100 hours in my last Polaris, but I'm up to about 200 hours in this guy. Ughh... I'm just to addicted to projects, engineering and tinkering. Probably why I have 3 engineering degrees.......

Not sure if this was posted already but picked a bunch of these decals up from So Jeep Girl on Instagram. Proceeds being donated of course.

Installed Quake LEDs (Amber Halo version).
Waiting on new bumper before installing the Fog lights.
Ran the DRL to the Aux3 wire on this sport S since there is no DRL on the main line.
Quake harness connects directly to the fender light harness. Just remove the fenders and it's a simple install.

Got blessed with a pretty good deal on some take off tires and wheels from a 2019 Rubicon. Still drives great, with only a tiny bit more noise and vibration than the stock Goodyears. Would have loved to try them out on Tuesday with the foot of snow we got, but didn’t get them until today. Good thing about Colorado anywhere near the Rockies.......If you don’t like the weather, wait 10 minutes

Asked dealer to apply TSB# S1819000003 and S1819000004 but with my own supplied Fox Racing ATS stabilizer and their updated track-bar.
End result? I’m just gonna close the books on this and calling it fixed.
On my way home, I went straight for a giant pothole at full speed, no death wobble, not even a wobble, very satisfied.
As for drift/steering wheel slack, the track bar appears to fix most of that, there is about half an inch of play but over all very smooth and consistent. Seems to be more resistant when turning the steering wheel but that’s probably due to the stabilizer.
Overall very happy and glad to not have to deal with issue again. (Hopeful)

Is the new updated track bar bigger, heavier, or adjustable?? Was wondering how they changed it. I noticed the factory one is super light when I replaced mine with rk adjustable one.

Finally had a nice enough day in Chicagoland to put the soft top all the way down!
I picked up my Moab in March and this Chicagoland weather has been killing me. Last couple days have been gorgeous, now looking like another week of rain. Grrrr

Got my Quadratec hood black out yesterday. Also got a stomach bug yesterday so waiting until this weekend to install. Should be fun with help from my 6 year old.

Quadratec aluminum engine and trans skid installed on my 2-door. The current 4 door plate will work on the 2 door if you make a hole for the fuel tank skid stud in the cross member or just cut off the stud like I did. I made a visit to Quadratec and worked with the engineers there. They have updated the site so that current skids say 4 door only and will update when they have the 2 door's ready (the hole for the 2 door's did not make it into production).

did lose a little ground clearance but the protection from this thing is better than the alternative these things are stout. I was talking was talking to Quadratec engineers, while developing the skids the engineers used a jack to lift the vehicle off the ground from multiple points plates and cross members.
