Looks good. About how much weight does that add?
I'm not sure the exact number but I feel like I'm a little heavier but I guess that's a good trade-off to protect everything.

Question for you guys and gals.... what spacer can I put in the rear to level the jeep up? When the hard top is on, she has a bit of a rearward rake....

Are the skid plates steel or aluminum?

Yes
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.

Is that an add on drip rail that you have installed?

Started my regear install. Not bad for a few hours of work.

Tomorrow I plan to complete the rear and hopefully tear into the front.

I’m going from stock 3.45 to 4.56.

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 need these. I already scuffed all the paint off of my pinch seam.

Yes, it's the Truck Master Designs drip rail extension for the JL.

It works great, but I did need to do a little trimming with a Dremel in order to get both sides to fit perfectly.

I have this system minus the gas tank skid. RC told me the full system weighs 150lbs. Mine weighs 80lbs with oil pan/transmission skid + transfer case skid. I've slid over several obstacles...worked well so far.

Installed Quadratec Hardrock Machined/Black 17x8.5" wheels with 5.2" backspacing with my 35" KO2's. Overall I like them, look a lot like OEM, fairly lightweight and the improved contact patch of the tread does make a difference.
Even with a 2"+ lift, 35" tires and aftermarket wheels-from the exterior (with the exception of the Warn bumpers & winch) she looks pretty stock as lift, tire size and wheel style work together to maintain OEM proportions.
