Installed a Warn grille guard and bought a Yeti cooler.

Warn Zeon 10-S and Factor 55 flatlink will be going on next!

I really admire that wheel & tire combination. Had it been available for order on my Sport, I might have taken one for the team and checked that particular Option box.

Today’s project is installing the cable gland on the roof and finishing wiring up the KC Chase bar.

Hi Mate, i am planning to install the same Cable Gland for my Solar Panel (and light wires). Would you mind sharing few photos from inside the jeep to show how it looks? also did you use your drill bits for the cable or used hole saw for a larger intake? I have 3 pair of cables going through, wondering if i should use hole saw or just 3 set of drill?

Thanks!

I agree, to me it was a dealbreaker, the wheels just work so well with granite crystal.

Nice, I just didn’t recognize the bottom pic. We live in citrus , and we’re usually either in croom, or withlacoochie state forest about every weekend.
Awesome, I’ve heard good things about Withlacoochie but haven’t made it up there yet.

The tire carrier is beefy and installed pretty easily, but could use some instructions.
I've installed a fair number of accessories through the years. More than twice have I wished that I could compel the manufacturers to pay me a consulting fee to [re]write their crappy instruction documents. Some are so lacking in discrete content that I wonder why they bothered. Others, like a few German accessory brands that come to mind (for motorcycles), just enclose a parts schematic and call it a day. SW-MOTECH, I'm looking at you.

It's a bit disheartening to read that Jeep accessory brands aren't immune from sometimes phoning it in.

I've seen a few instances where the companies don't provide any printed instructions at all, and expect that a YouTube video will do the heavy lifting for them. This is especially galling to think about when said video isn't even made by the brand itself, but rather by an owner who is just trying to help his community. Thank goodness for those guys.

Most of it was self-explanatory, but confirmation is a helpful too.

I have most of the same accessories. I like them coasters!

You are going to find those Mopar sill guards inadequate, though. After scuffing the paint with my boots, I ended ripping them up and replacing them with a set from Quadratec.
