I picked this up as a daily driver a couple days ago. Plus my wife wanted her own trail rig to go Jeeping with the Girls Jeep club. So I am getting out a grinder and a saw zaw to make more room for the tires. Time to trim the fenders.

There is a guy on Youtube that runs a recovery business I think in Utah that uses several XJ to extract rigs. I've seen him pull Class B motorhomes out of the sand with these and F-350s out of the mud. It's a good watch on your spare time. I think it might be Matt's Towing and Recovery, maybe.

The hardest part for me was unclipping the cable connection, nearly bruised my thumb with how hard you have to push down on the clip. Got smart and used a trim tool for leverage, after that it was a breeze. 30 min on the first one, 10-15 min on the second one.
Same! I'm replacing the fenders now and disconnecting the turn signal lights was frustratingly difficult! I ended up breaking the entire connection on the passenger side because I couldn't work it lose....SMH. Oh well, time to do some redneck wiring lol

With the warm weather coming just pulled the trigger on a set of these. Anyone already have these?

Yes, and I'm happy with them. They don't rattle and work well.

@JLUR IT Any updates to your build?
@JLUR IT Any updates to your build?
Pulled the winch, bumper and grille for the Rugged Ridge Headlight Guards. I’ve been sitting on them ever since I realized I had to remove everything to install them. Today I installed the Tuffy Rear Security Deck. In my opinion it is of MUCH better quality than the JK variant I had before. Not pictured- Tuffy Center Console went in last week- I couldn’t figure out the combo lock reset features so I kept the regular keyed version in which I’ll keep in the trunk. Rock lights are a work in progress- right rear over tire light which is the furthest cable line is malfunctioning. @noregrets605 thanks for pulling me back in- I’m at work but no customers are allowed in and I’ve run out of smaller projects to do on the Jeep!

Done with round 1 for now. Fab Fours stubby bumper, Synergy 1.75” wheel spacers, Rampage tonneau cover, KC Daylighters, and Trigger 4 Plus light management. Few smalls hiccups installing stuff but overall pretty simple. 2 things to note:
1. Trigger 4 Plus switches cannot be hardwired
2. FreedomTop Plus makes taking the hardtop off the easiest thing possible and is the best investment ever. Seriously just get it and a harbor freight engine hoist and be done.

2019 JL Wrangler Sport S 3.6L Auto 2 door, 2.5" lift, 35s
Added Mopar lift. Gained 2.5 inches. Planning for 35" inch tires next. Fuel Ammo 17" (Anthacite) wheels with -12 offset on back order. Anyone have an opinion of which tires to mate in order to bring this all together. Requirement is an all terrain since Snoopy (what the wife calls him) is my daily driver. Definitely not a rock crawler (a Sport S with open diffs), but something that could possibly do some serious trails. However, no cliff climbing is on the horizon. I'm leaning towards Goodyear Duratrac Wrangler Ultraterrain AT or Nitto EXO Grappler AWT's.

Without opening Pandora's box, I would appreciate knowledable opinions. Before and after lift pics included.

Thanks,
Jay

Thinking about the same taillight guards. Do you have the blind spot monitoring system? Any issue With the guards effecting it? I read some reviews where some said it was an issue. Looks great btw
I have them and the BS monitoring (haha) no interference

BFG AT KO2’s work well super quiet, comfortable and light weight.
I now have Nitto ridge grapplers virtually the same as the BFG’s noise wise but a stronger sidewall and I expect to be able to get an extra 10,000 miles out of them they both work very well off-road the Nitto’s seem to do a little bit better off-road than the BFG’s but to be fair I did go from 285 70 17 KO2’s to 315 70 17 ridge grapplers overall get what you like best make sure you get a load C because your JL is not very heavy and they will ride better happy Jeeping:like:

any comments on the Trigger? Looking for a reasonable switch panel and can’t think of dropping $850 on the S-POD. Also think the wireless capabilities are a nice touch.
