Not sure if it counts that I did it :giggle: but I picked up Motobilt inner fenders from the powder coating shop. These will be installed when the lift and tires go on next week! The lighting is weird but it’s the Rubicon decal’s border’s red against a textured black.

Installed the Fab Fours bumper but didn’t like seeing the steering components and those two bolt holes on the frame. Couldn’t decide on a skid plate option. So I dremeled a couple of notches in the old cover plate, painted it dull black and put it back on.

I agree with you, didn’t like the bolt holes either when I took the plastic skid and metal bracket off to install a front receiver. Decided to leave the skid and bracket off, and used the frame bolts to secure some amber KC Cyclones as markers that turn on with the fogs.

I know a lot of people are putting their hard tops back on as we're getting closer to winter, but since its still in the 90's here in Austin, I thought it would be a good time to finally pull the trigger on purchasing/installing a Trek-Top and I'm glad I did.

We got the Passenger Side Catalytic Converter (68252389AG) pulled out, it was bent and the honeycomb was damaged inside, then swapped in a new one. Easy install, just in a tight spot to work in.

Is that bumper for a JL? The secondary bars look like they partially block the headlights.
Yes, it's for a JL. I took the picture at an odd angle to avoid the sun. There's no shadow from the headlights.

I see what @GtX is talking about. No shadows, but it looks like the side bar coming off the main bar is a little too high and covers the bottom portion of your headlight.

I agree. Looks odd, but I've haven't run into any issues (that I can see from the driver's seat). The issue I have with my headlights is that I replaced them with LEDs and the increased height of the Jeep and the brighter LEDs annoys oncoming drivers and I constantly get flashed by them thinking I have my brights on.

I’ve never done it, but I’d assume there’s a way to adjust the headlight angle to compensate for the increase in height. Great bumper anyway!

it looks like you have the Oracle Oculus headlights. If so, they are very easy to adjust. There is a rubber cap on each light that you pull off and then use a screwdriver to adjust height. Shine lights on garage door or any flat wall from about 20' away and start adjusting :like: . this also helps to get cutoff line from left to right in proper position with driver side a bit lower than passenger, this helps with blinding oncoming traffic.

Did you get yours as a take off as well or did you buy it new? That’s a 10th anniversary bumper as well right? What skid plate are you using?
I bought it as a take off and put it on my 12 sport about 2014. I put the stock jk bumper back on when I traded it in for my JL, so I put the 10th anniversary bumper on my JL last year. It’s the 10th anniversary (or hard rock) skid plate.
