I've been mucking about with vehicles for 30+ years now. My new JLU is, far and away, the one most clearly designed for rapid assembly on the factory line.

Said differently: It's a challenge -- and a victory -- to retain serviceable fasteners on the Jeep after their removal...even when using the correct tool. That's just one example. The same R&R effort would barely be an afterthought on almost any other vehicle that I've owned...particularly the Hondas, which should surprise no one.

The foregoing has increased my respect for the guys that install lift kits in their garages. If any of you are reading this post, and I ever decide to take on a similar challenge, expect a PM from me. I pay in beer. Or food. Or food and beer! :)
11 out of 12 were reusable, but nowhere near great condition. I should keep extras around for future endeavors

Been using the 300 for about a year now and loving the ease of use.
Nice.., there are two (at least two) good videos on YouTube, and while the first video is a different unit, the wiring tutorial was good:

2nd video is pretty darn good.

Actually easy peasy..., enjoy the extra switches, good price, no flash, and OEM look!

I got my Hi-lift jack installed in the back of my jeep today.

. No rattles or sounds coming from it, because I took a door shim and pushed it right in the slide.

Installed winch and bar yesterday along with replacing floor mats and added some decals to the wife’s Rubi. I ended up modifying the cover so it could be used, looked odd without it. Our blue anodized Pro Link will be here Wednesday.

Jeep looks great. Was wondering which bar do you have and does it block the front camera view at all?

Need a storage bag? Don't tell Amazon, otherwise they'll jack up the price 500%, but this tree bag works like a charm to store the back seat. Pretty solid, and has ample room.
Plenty of room in my front coset so mine sits in there now. The tree bag died during the move.

Just received my LoD Signature sliders today and went ahead and installed them after I got home from work.

I haven’t drilled any of the optional holes so I’ll need to do that later on but otherwise got them on. Had to hone out one of the holes on the slider some to get a bolt in on the back but otherwise seamless install.

Loved the fact that I didn’t have to touch the body bolts at all.

A few pics but I’ll have to snap a few during the day.

Installed the Brawlee light Bar today. I did it only to use the 12v plug when I need it. I made a custom holder for the plug so it is faster to plug in. I may run a switch at some point but for my needs this will be great.

The holder is a leftover rubber bumper for the spare tire from my tailgate reenforcement. It fit the cargo rack hole perfectly. I then installed a PVC pipe connector and cut a notch so the 12V plug snaps in.

I ran the wires thru the plastic track and made a small notch for the wire to enter the track. I then ran the resining wire thru the existing wire loom and followed the wires out thru the disconnect for the hard top. Made for a very clean install. The remote transmitter fit in that housing also.

Here is the notch entering the plastic trim

Here is the plug cleanly coming out of the disconnect housing. I zip tied my cable due to I most likely with not take the top off, if I do then a quick zip tie cut and it can be disconnected.

Here is the plug which hangs downward under the cargo tray

Here is the rubber bumper sitting flush on the inside of my cargo rack. I a zip tie on the left holding the plug up out of the way

Here is the OEM wire loom I ran the wire thru

After the wire loom, is it simple to fish the wire through the top?

Nope, no issues, it's the Warn Low bar, ordered off of Amazon. When you have the bumper off is a good time to install it.

Put on the RR Arcus front bumper W/ RC Pro 9500S winch. Pretty happy with the final product. I got the kit with the bull bar but haven’t decided to install yet.

Getting a lift And some new wheels/ tires later in the week. :rock:
