Here is something I did for my Jeep. I didn't want my hardtop just hanging from the ceiling so I installed rails for the hoist system and built a shelf for the top to set on. The shelf also made a great place to hang the doors and park the mower and other necessities.

How tall is your garage ceiling? Thanks

Installed my new JPeggz side mirrors - https://www.jpeggz.com/

Have you removed your Jpeggz and put your doors back on yet? Did you wind up with the hinge being mis-aligned at all? I'm asking because some of us are experiencing the Jpeggz forcing the bottom hinge to become mis-aligned leaving a gap at the hinge when putting the doors back on.

Ive locked myself out more than I care to admit, and at the most inconvenient times too. hopefully this will solve my issue with remembering the key fob in the cup holder lol. :facepalm:

I can’t lock myself out, my Jeep is smarter than i am. It refuses to lock the door and honks at me 4 times to remind me that I’m an idiot. I guess I have some feature that does that, I thought all jeeps were equipped with it

I put on new wiper blades and used one of those fogging deodorizers and bombed the interior bc the previous owner smoked in it

My Rubicon's horn beeps twice if I leave the FOB in the Jeep by mistake so I can't lock myself out.

Lucky you guys. I dont have that feature. I have basic manual locks. So I have to rely on my own brain power. Yay

Got a Rugged Ridge hoop bar installed.

Laid out in my driveway and took off the euro doodads, and the belly pan. Took me forever to get the driver side off, but then when i figured it out, the passenger side came off fast.

Got my CMM mirrors in the mail, installed the mounts for them (didnt get any pics), but they seem to have a very nice fit and finish.

Now waiting on my buddy to get his JLUR so i can buy his wheels/tires and suspension.

Also since i have the Rubi fenders installed and line-x'd, i think next up his getting the hood sprayed. Eventually the whole ride will be line-x'd, in stages.

Today I installed HotHead Sound Assasins and Headliners. I will add that the to me it seems the suggestion of doing this with the top on is insane though. I would never want to have that dust and acetone near a new Jeep interior. Also, the instructions for the side windows say to remove the velcro and affix to sides alone first, then add window trim. Not sure I agree with that. I tore off the sticky from the velcro, lightly put in place to make sure in proper spot and then applied pressure to the tape areas. Perfect. Will now have to wait until after OBX beach trip to put on the top and see how it sounds/feels.

There's a YouTube video by Shocker Racing that really helped me out, just watch the whole thing because I think he did the second one easier.
Yeahhhhh....I watched that video but didn’t finish it and wish I had now. :CWL: Nearly 20 minutes in is when he starts the passenger side. Just skip to that point and follow what he does. The key is to have a longish T27 screwdriver. It needs to be small/slim to get into the tight space. That’s NOT what she said!!! :CWL::LOL::CWL:

Might be tough as I only had hard top on for a day before I put soft top on. Won't get exposed to hard top again until October, but will advise if I notice. I went with others on sound improvement and some thermal.

This may be a dumb question, but how did the hoop install onto stock bumper? Been wanting to do something like that with mine.

Also, which hoop is it?
