First time on this thread. I've been wrenching quite a bit over the quarantine period. Plan is to flat tow behind our motorhome, so I needed a bumper I could tow from. Installed a Rockhard 4x4 aluminum bumper with tow brackets. Will be wheeling mostly solo, so I installed a Warn Evo VR 10S. Directions said to install winch after bumper, because it wouldn't fit between the frame. However, it would have, and that would have made the job 2 hours faster in my case. I filmed a video of these installs that will be on our YouTube channel.

Next, in order to flat tow, the Jeep needed brake cables installed. One for brake operation and a second for an emergency brake application in the event of a disconnected, runaway Jeep!

Next week, I'll be installing a lighting harness kit so that the motorhome can control the Jeeps lighting.

Looks like a really nice ReadyBrake install. Very clean, mine is minus the air dam and rock guard thanks to Gander/Camping World installing the base plate and disposing of all the spare parts they did not think I would need or like to have on the front of my Jeep. Never going to have them do any work again I've included a picture of the front after they installed the base plate. Again, I really like what you have done.

Do you have a link to those mirrors? If there is a ball on the grab handle, I'm thinking the ball could double as a phone holder when not using the mirror?

Finished up the Tackform and Ram mount installation for the phone and iPad mini. The Tackform arms are modular, very nice adjustability...

I dig that, looks good. I have the Voondala one, bought a new Ram ball for it and it’s been great.

I like the cool silhouette of the mountain range etched into your windshield. Was that a factory option?
