I swapped out a 2” spacer lift for a JKS 2.5” dual rate lift with HD front springs to account for front bumper and winch combo. Also added RC adjustable LCAs. Definitely a little stiffer ride but a lot less body roll in corners. So far very happy with the upgrade. Can’t wait to get flexy in a couple weeks.

Had Rubicon suspension installed today, now I need some bumpers and a winch.

Started wiring the LED cube lights. Haven't installed them yet. Doing as much soldering off the vehicle as possible.

Well, this was an amazing piece of work for me. With my cans in the window it was difficult at best to vent them. Now, slip my finger tip onto pushbutton and pressure is neutralized. So frikkin simple

I had similar difficulty with one of the stabilizer bolts and the rear shock bolts. Some pounding on a breaker bar with a mallet finally got 'em loose.

I have a set of these skids coming, so I guess I'll have to drink milk & eat some Wheaties. Yay.
The impact gun made loosening the rears easy. There were no clearance issues in using the gun on those big bolts. But getting the leverage to turn the torque wrench while laying under it was a pain in the ass. I bet if I had even had it up on ramps, it would have been much easier.

That said, I’m quite happy with the end product. It’ll be worth your strict Wheaties diet.

I'm gonna get 'er up on jack stands... Hopefully the gun will help & I'll have enough leverage & room to bang away with the mini-Mjolnir.

Is that J-10? I would buy that over the Gladiator in a heartbeat. Too bad FCA didn’t stick with this retro look for the new Gladiator.

Installed my Redline Tuning hood struts today.
Pretty simple job that would have been done in 1/2 the time if I had not been taking photos of the process.

To begin with, the product is quality. The packaging is excellent and the full color instructions could not be any more detailed.
I was impressed right away.
All that is needed is a 1/4" drive ratchet, a short extension, and a 10mm socket.

The lower brackets are side specific and well marked. They went on first.

Next, the upper brackets go on. Follow the directions to the letter and they install perfectly.
Take note that the weatherstrip is in the way. I used a pair of needle nose pliers and gently removed the first plastic insert.
Install the upper bracket per the instructions and then pop the weatherstrip insert back into its hole.
The instructions tell you that you can trim the weatherstrip back, but I chose to leave it as stock.

Finally, the struts are installed with the gas cylinder facing up.
Gently rock the attachment point onto the ball stud (do not force it), and it pops right on.

Done!
I can recommend this product.
