Finally took care of the squealing stock brakes.

Removed rotors and used 180 grit and then 320 grit to get rid of any glazing and to put on a nice crosshatch
Lubed with Sil-Glyde all of the brake hardware, to include back of the pads/shims and slider hardware
Flushed old brake fluid out and replaced with Lucas Oil Synthetic DOT 3 fluid
Bled brake system
Took it on a long test drive to bed the pads back onto the rotor's new surface. There was much better brake pedal feel and no more squealing! Hopefully the brakes stay quiet for a while. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of front and rear pad left. At 16k miles, I probably have another 16-20k miles left on them.

Replaced my bent Go Rhino dominator steps that I bent over the weekend to something a little more sturdy, Smittybilt SRC steps so hopefully I won't have that issue again.

Are those Rubicon Fenders? If so are they pretty straight forward to put on?
Just the front ones are, yeah they basically have two bolts, and a bunch of push in inserts. Super simple. I didnt do the fender lines though, that adds a little more annoyance.

A minor update, but what else is there to do?

I installed fender welting to prevent rocks/debris from accumulating in the fender/body gap and also to clean up appearance. I think it looks great, curious how it will hold up. I did use some clear silicone at each end to try and make it more secure. I am also including the amazon page, install with just a trim removal tool and 25' is plenty.

Added the Voswitch JL200. The installation was easy...I had a harder time removing the Alien Sunshade! Also I could NOT get the wipers off. I saw on line that for some Jeeps the first time is hard, so I just had a buddy hold the windshield forward while I ran the cable. The Voswitch instructions are not good, but the product seems solid and the design well thought out. Thanks @NXT Black Moab for the tips. Now I just need my lights and winch to come in to hook up to it!

I just pulled the trigger on this, i'll get it next week. Hopefully i can figure out how to put it together. Looks fairly easy though.

Did you notice that there is a screw in the spare tire?
Should have been quoting Larrymuld since the screw is in his tire, I just saw that. I added his quote so Larry will see.

My Saturday social distancing project was installing a MXT275 with Midlands 6db antenna on cooltech’s antenna bracket.

I like the cool silhouette of the mountain range etched into your windshield. Was that a factory option?
How did you attach the phone holder to the grab bar?
