Looks great. Like the color match with the Rubicon outline. What’s the color code?

It’s a rainy day here and I had a short day at work, so I thought I’d try and make my ocd shut up. .......:mad:......With a full tank of gas I’ve had a 5/8” lean to the passenger side for a while now. So I added a half inch spacer to passenger side.............

I got it within a 1/4”, that’s gonna have to do. Those of you that don’t have ocd, be thankful, it’s a bitch............:headbang:...............:)

since i puttered around the past few days on my JLUR I figured I better keep peace and spend a bit of time on the JK. Today being warm out I ventured to install the soft top. The Jeep is 3 years old and the top has never been installed. All the parts were there and this was no easy task since it needed real stretching to get it into place.
Overall about 2 hrs work, but it looks great. I didn’t realize the soft top also has a sun rider flip up top for just the front.
Very cool.
Now got,to find a place to put the hard top.

Yesterday installed and wired up my arb twin compressor. I'm embarrassed to say I had it sitting in garage since Black Friday when I bought it lol. Thanks to @Jeep Generation for the video and help for the wiring. Also over the weekend helped my uncle install his compressor inside his small leitner box on his JT, as well as mounting his road shower. Didn't take pics of those two yet

I installed a Mishimoto oil catch can this morning. It included an air freshener:

The air-freshner made me smile a bit, and won me over with its timely usefulness; The Jeep stinks from a recent rubber mat purchase. Still airing it out today:

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Well you see I got these Mopar running boards that came with the Jeep when new. I'm tall enough that I don't really use them. I would much rather have rock rails/sliders but I don't mind the look of them and better than having nothing and looking at the ugly body seam. They do help keep the snow/mud and rocks from bashing the door hinges and splattering the whole side of the jeep. So I got looking at them and wondered if i could adjust them a little to hide the body seam a little better as well as add a little more ground clearance. I got some longer M6x40mm bolts and added 8-3/4" spacers per side, between the mount and the bottom of the running board and like the looks better. If I ever landed hard on a rock or stump the mount would probably snap as they are plastic, but the board is metal. If they ever get damaged I'll have a reason to upgrade. Until then it keeps the body somewhat protected from light scrapes and occasional sticks and such that pop up when you run over them.

Added a fuel door cover, door sill cover, and tire cover (and silicone license plate frame) so far. I have a Mopar tailgate table en route.

I really like that metalflake color and personnaly, I would paint the tow hooks the same color and all other accents that color and it would be incredible imo. Did you apply Clear over it?
