Finished installing Fab Fours front and rear bumpers. I left off 4 bolts on the top panels. The threads need to be cleaned up, but I need to get the right tap at Home Depot tomorrow.

Did you use your original factory LED fog lights for the front bumper or something else? I’ve read people having issues with those.

以后不怕走夜路了。

Are those plastic? Wont they rub against the A pillar and be brittle in the winter?

The past month has seen further progress on my 2018.

Finished a two-tier platform a drawer build for the back. The Dometic lives on a sunken platform on the drivers die rear seat location. Accessible from the front seats, laying on the platform or from the drivers side rear door. I did this to keep the platform height down. This allows plenty of headroom and too cargo carrying options as well as leaves the passenger side rear open for access to the storage in the tub and a full length covered are for hiding those longer items, etc. The druvers side drawer extends out to reveal the stove and a wash bin w/rear cutlery and spice storage.

I added the ARB Awning w/led lights to the drivers side of the Jeep and am liking it thus far. Since taking the image, I've flipped the brackets so the awning sits flush with the roof rack and hugs the side of the Jeep. Much better afterwards...

I also installed a Frankenstein Synergy 2in Lift. I used 90% Synergy parts with springs, track bar (front), track bar bracket (rear), rear sway bar links and bump stops. But I opted for RK no limits front sway bar links, Teraflex IR Front LCAs and Fox Shocks. A great improvement and more clearance, but not too much to make the 33s look like toys. The image below makes it look like the rear end is squatting, but she sits pretty level.

Projects underway are a water tank for the rear, getting around to installing my Midland radio.

I used the OEM fog lights.

Looking good dude.

No need to rush it. Better to enjoy the ride and have cash for trips, than have all the toys and no ability to use them.

One piece at a time... the wallet can't keep up otherwise lol

Nothing major but got rid of the crazy looking antenna. Ordered rugged ridge sill protectors and RR trailer hitch assembly. Just a few mods for the new rig.

2021 Wrangler Rubicon, 6 speed manual...
What length extensions are you using and how much room between bike and spare tire?
Using a 12" extension, have about 8 inches between bike and spare. (Probably could have gotten away with shorter extension, but the 12 was all they had at the time)...

Finish installing the Rugged Ridge Amfib Snorkel System. Also extended the transmission breather into the snorkel ducting (the diff breathers were already extended into the air box)
