Installed my new DV8 FS-15 Stubby Bumper this afternoon. Now to order new fog lights as the sport S ones don’t fit.
Jon over at @fifteen52 also installed the Fox 2.0 ATS Stabilizer as well... maybe he can help regarding the torque?Lol! It was not hard, bolts came right off and had the old one out in 5 minutes. The issue was lining up all 3 hole for the mounting bracket. I would get one bolt in and the other 2 would be off by a hair! Once l started lifting the Jeep up I found the right height that allowed me to finally get them in. Only question I have now is what to torque the eyelet bolt too?? Instructions only say to OEM..
I drove with it today and the wheel is stiffer to turn. I have it set to 12 and it goes to 24. Does not remove the play in the steering but I feel like I have to make less small adjustments to keep it straight.
Handy, but knees don't deal well with crawling around on them. Plus, since this is taking so long to get from OH to CA, I want to take delivery with some things already on it so I can hit the ground running, so-to-speak.It ain't gonna stop, and it's only just begun. Obviously, I don't know how handy you are with a wrench, but doing all the modifications, installs, oil changes, etc. yourself are much more fun and even more satisfying.
And... only 2 grand?
You'll have your Wrangler in no time... but whatever you do, don't read this.Handy, but knees don't deal well with crawling around on them. Plus, since this is taking so long to get from OH to CA, I want to take delivery with some things already on it so I can hit the ground running, so-to-speak.
Yes, only two grand. That's not what the end result will be (is there ever an end to it?) - just what I wanted to pick it up/take delivery with.
Now send some good Karma to the railroad so they will release it and it can get to the dealer! LOL.
Thanks for sharing. Very helpful.No problem. The mirror I’m using has no brand name ( I think it’s called HDGO) from Russia that I ordered on aliexpress. You can type in “2 channel mirror dash cam” on Amazon and see other options as well. I just compared prices and got an alert when there was a flash sale.
In my old posts I hardwired the BlackSys dash cam going through the mirror panel, A-pillar and onwards to the rear of the vehicle. You’ll need to remove some trim pieces and torx screws. If you have a plastic crowbar for vehicle clips it can help push the wires through and save you time.
I did the same thing again except I have it plugged to the rear cigarette outlet and @Rhinebeck01 has a diagram that shows which fuses to swap so that outlet is only on w/ ignition.
While I find this install cleaner- this mirror is larger than factory so it will bump into your driver’s side sun visor (when down). If you have the cam set to “rear view” then I suppose you could center your mirror and it wouldn’t matter.
You can put 37 inch tires on stock Rubi wheels? I thought 35 inch was the largest size that would fit...Today I got the MOPAR 2" lift and some 37 inch BFGoodrich KM3's. It's wandering a bit but they set the tires at 40 psi and I haven't had time to lower them yet. I like the way it turned out. Can't wait to try the tires out off road next week.
I like how you solved this. I had been thinking about solutions, but hadn’t come up with this one. Well done sir.I took apart the dash and fished a 2 meter lightning cable down through the dash and through the center console and into the armrest compartment to the USB jack there. Lightning cable pops out right where it needs to be, to the left of the screen, for my chosen phone location.
Kinda crazy just to avoid the dangling wire and the always-open Media cover on the dash... but it's an OCD thing for me I think.
Quick question. So, you cut the inner fender liners up until the outer part that shows on the outside of the fender? Or is it 2 separate pieces?Installed one artec inner fender.. just one and I'm about to pass out. Second one should be easier..
Apparently they sent me the female version, because mine came with no nuts!
