It has 33,000 miles on it. I put 37s on it the day after I bought it. It has been wheeled all over the country and has pulled a camper for over 10,000 miles. It has done 26 Jeep badge of Honor trails and is not a daily driver. 90% of the miles were Jeep wheeling related miles. I just got back from a 5734 mile wheeling trip that included 8 days in Moab, and the Rubicon Trail.
...which helps confirm what i need to buy before going out west! Upgrades for you! :rock:

While my Jeep drove excellent, I did upgrade all the steering components prior to going out with the Yeti Steersmarts stuff.

For all of it. I probably drove the 2500+ miles home towing a camper with the axle like that.

I used to run a 24" AntennaX antenna on both my 2009 and 2012 JK's, but I forgot to remove it when I sold my 2012 JK :facepalm:

It's impossible to find the 24" AntennaX antenna now, so I went with the next best option, a 31" black spring steel antenna from AntennaMastsRus/The Antenna Source.

No impact whatsoever on radio reception and it looks much better than the stock 35" stainless antenna.

Removed the Mopar entry guards and installed these from Quadratec.

Not sure what the deal with the Mopar guards is: they are easy to install, but they don’t protect squat. They don’t cover very much and leave the paint on the pinch seam exposed to getting scuffed by my boots.

These Quadratec guards are the real deal: they fit perfectly, they protect the entire door sill, including the seam, they are super easy to install, and cost half as much as the Mopars!

These are the Mopar guards for reference.

I think Mopar does that because of the lower door seal. I used thin clear 3M tape to protect those areas then put the Mopar plates on top. Agree that alone, the Mopar ones don't protect enough.
