Added some 7” led lights in the bumper ends and wired them to my RC MLC6 controller. Used disconnect plugs in case I want to take ends off for stubby. Great lights for the money

Like the single 7" light. Well done, and hopefully helps others find a set up they like in those caps too. Surprised S/B doesn't have something that fits perfectly in there specifically for that bumper. Seems some standard lighting with some plastic housings for those caps would sell every time they sold one of those bumpers. Thanks for sharing.., looks great.

Was it difficult to apply? I know nothing about ceramic coatings? I guess I will have to search for a thread.
from what i read its all about the cure times. I figure its no worse than doing a normal hand wax. Just ordered myself the Chemical Guys ceramic wax to try it out. gonna pick up the polish in hopes to get ride of some of the desert pin strips i have

Just installed my CB in the new jeep. I ran the cable through the fabric between the tailgate for a seamless transition.

Little bit of work but worth it.

While confirming access to the cabin air filter, I saw the pictured electrical connection assemblies. What's their purpose, and can they serve as a source for accessory 12V power? Just curious; I've no plans to do anything with them.

Removed the wrangler unlimited stickers. I’m a fan of the cleaner look. The rest will stay for now.

No, I just had to swap the connection to the rest of the harness from the outside of the frame rail to the inside. Not that big a deal. However I forgot to do it before I put the bumper on and I couldn't fit it under the grill. So I had to remove the grill just to move it from one side to the other. Not that big a deal but would have been better had I remembered to do it before installing the bumper.
Thanks so much... Exactly the info I was looking for.

I saw the connector attached to the outside of the rail with that tab thing so I'll relocate the cable :like:

Because this is ceramic for paint protection film its formulation is different than ceramic you install on paint, therefore this one is super easy to apply. If you are wanting to install ceramic on painted surface you need to make sure your paint is fully corrected, meaning no swirls, and application of ceramic requires a little more attention. Watch some obsessed garage videos on youtube he does a good job explaining.

Over the weekend me and @Roky put on a Rubicon suspension takeoff with some 3/4 fishbone spacers all around and 1/2 Teraflex spacers in the front. Turned out that because the rear springs were the highest number (91-92) I ended up with a 1 inch rake or more in the rear. Just yesterday a guy helped me out in a Rubicon express 1.75 inch coil spacer in the front and now she’s perfectly level! The top pic is stock height with 33s, middle pic is after suspension install with rake, bottom pic is finally completed and in my eyes leveled out. Ended up getting about 2-2.25 inches all around.

This is my first lift. I got the Jeep in May 20. Lovin it!

After putting a dent in the stock gas tank skid plate, decided I needed to up-armor it. Gas tank, oil pan, transmission and transfer case are now safe(er).

I just forgot to drill out the rivets to remove the branding plate (not a fan of "in your face" branding), but since you don't see it unless you are under it, I guess it will stay.
