Looks spot on!! I really dig tho stock rubi rims. Are you running spacers? And What kind of lift?
Thanks man. Unfortunately the lift was already on the Jeep when I got it so I couldn’t tell you about spacers. And the lift seems to be the Taraflex 2.50 inch sport lift kit with Falcon 2.1 shocks. I was planning on getting the adjustable Falcon shocks, but the regular Falcons have been doing great.

Not sure if this helps at all

Thanks for the pics mate! Looks beast!! The stick-out isn’t too much (which is great) so it really looks like you’re not running spacers. Especially considering that proper spacers for the JL are 1.75” wide and those would make your tire pop outwards way more.

I would imagine this is how much a 12.5” tire would stick out with stock rims and no spacers & that’s great to know!

I found these side lights, they are super slick. Has a amber turn single indicator for you guys with aftermarket fenders with a small or no turn single light. The fit and finish is as good as factory. My only issue is their logo.
They work with Artech dual pillar lights. Too.

Hey Henry, mind share the financials here? They wanted to take me out back and have their way with me when I looked at trading in my 2019. I want a diesel too so I’m trying a private sale... any guidance will be appreciated.
Chad, quick and dirty way to eek out some good intel and get a real market valuation.... Put the details of your sled through webuyanycar.com, carmax, and carvana. I did so and got the dealer to the same #..., and quick and easy. I was not being nefarious.., just didn't pull the deal. Post #30,884 has a couple more details.., but tech makes it way cleaner to get a fair valuation. Good luck, let us know if you pull the trigger on that diesel!

Refreshed the Ceramic coating.
Even in the shade, it shines better than new.

Used Torque this time.
Time will tell if it is better than NexGen or not.

Have you been applying it to the black plastic parts as well? I was thinking about trying it but I do not want to end up with chalky looking plastics.

Looks so shiny! I’m definitely going to do this as well!
Were you not satisfied with NexGen or did you just want to try another brand? I’m not sure which one is the better one to buy. My Wrangler is only a month old so I want to take care of it as best as I can:)

Also, does anyone know what the difference is between Silicon Dioxide products like the Torque and NexGen and polish sealants such as the ‘Turtle Wax ICE Seal and Shine’

I am guessing you can’t use both types of products and so you have to use one or the other, correct?

Picked it up Tuesday but haven’t gotten a chance to wash it or post until today.

Running the RK 2.5” Adventure Series 2 with Stage 1 shocks on 37/12.5/17 KO2s wrapping Fuel Beast rims.

Awesome wheels!
I noticed your hinges are black, did you get them painted or?

Thanks! Keen eye! I read the thread about rock chips to the door hinges and I was looking at protective film to place on them. Found these on Amazon and I personally like how they look.

They’re out of stock right now but that’s the general gist of them. Have not tested them through an automatic car wash yet but I will here shortly. They ship with an extra reel of automotive 3M tape so I added a few extra strips for added measure and have had no complaints thus far. Taking off the doors this summer was no issue either.

Oh wow thanks a bunch! I really love the look of black hinges and this method makes it much easier than expected! Not to mention the added protection! Thanks mate!
