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.
Voswitch is under 300 on Amazon. Not wireless but a heck of a deal.

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.
Yeah, I'm still sitting on my headlight guards, plus Bolt hood lock, and planning on painting the shiny grill trim while everything is off. About how long did it take to disassemble and reassemble?

It is really well made and everything works so far. I got the 4 switch kit because I don’t anticipate needing 6 switches. The 4 switches can’t be hardwired in, they run off of 2 watch batteries. Other than that I am not great at wiring and it still was easy to install and took me about an hour. I would recommend it so far.

Had some paint protection film and fender vent decals added yesterday.

Affluent Auto Studios in Norfolk, MA installed a new Grille Kit, Headlamp & Fog Lamp Kit and Hood & Fender (Bikini Cut) Kit by XPEL.

They also installed a new 2-Color Fender Vent Blackout Decal Kit by PixelDecals.

Do you have a winch? If not it’ll take 15 minutes to remove the grille and put on the headlight guards. My modular bumper top half had to come off and winch had to be unbolted.

spent the morning doing a ceramic coat. Cold out here, but cranked the heater in the garage up, put on some tunes and did a nice first coat. May do a stacked coat tomorrow.

I got my drag link & tie rod on, and steering stabilizer relocated today. Steer smarts drag link, and synergy tie rod because I saved a lot of money by doing it.....:clap:.

The one disappointing thing is my dual shock stabilizer wouldn’t work with the synergy tie rod. I liked the way it made the steering wheel feel, kinda heavy. I know it’s not any better than any of the others, but it was my signature thing, been running them for years, from way back when they were cool.....:giggle:

I’m going to my local shop and see if my buddy can fabricate the center bracket, that’s the only problem. The new tie rod is closer to the diff than the stock one.

Apparently I did this during nap time, Colby was nowhere to be found , but she did find time to inspect my work......:facepalm:......:)
