Fantastic looking Jeep! Those wheels are some of the best looking I've seen. What are they?

I made a change and added a skid plate today.

First, since my forward facing camera underneath the Jeep met its fate against a rock, I've been wanting to mount another in a safer place. So I added it to the front bumper. It gets a good look at the ground right in front of the Jeep and adjusted the wheel path lines on the Garmin Overlander.

I then removed the front axle disconnect cover/skid plate and put a much thicker and stronger Rock Hard cover on it to protect it better on the slight chance it takes a hit. This thing is much heavier and beefier. It took 5 minutes to mount as it uses the same 4 bolts the original used.

Installed some new rock sliders instead of the sahara steps.

Also installed white grill surround to give the front end the little detail it was missing after blacking out the grill.
Looks good....
What size lift did you go with?

I thought I blew it up, :facepalm:........ We were out running a trail with Rudolph and was vertical to much. The blow by leaked out of the throttle body, that’s my best guess anyway. There never was a CEL or any other warnings , bells, or whistles. It’s running fine, so I’m not to worried about it. The wife accused me of sabotage, since the there’s been talk of the 392 , lol. I fully expect to hear it from the catch can guys, lol. :)

I've a set of heavy mil yellow lens decals waiting to be installed on my fog lights. Do you find that the orange lenses on your rig make a positive difference when driving through low visibility conditions? TIA.
Unfortunately I haven't had an opportunity to test them out in bad weather...yet. Another forum member recommended them and he said he did find a big improvement, so hoping for similar results. That said I do like the amber on orange look regardless ;)

In three days it will be two years since my Rubicon purchase - finally decided to put on 35’s. Overall, happy with results. I still get the 8th gear, MPG impact had not been noticeable and ride is a bit better.
Nice, and as expected.., stock no lift? .., and what tires?
Thanks!

Kinda taste like chicken,.........:(
You weren’t wrong. You don’t need a stupid catch can. You need a 392. Just keep doing what you’re doing. You’ll get there.....

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 can relate to the Frankenstein build! I have Synergy, AEV, Teraflex, and Clayton suspension/steering components.
