Installed a Rock Hard 4X4 Patriot Series Mid Width Aluminum Bumper. Unfortunately, some hardware was missing so couldn't continue the winch install, gotta call them during the week. Nonetheless, digging the new look :)

Tried to put on a new bumper yesterday on my 2021 JLUR only to realize no hardware had been sent. Not a single nut, bolt, screw, fog light bracket, nothing. Just the bumper. Gave up and went in to be told it would be overnighted. Found out last night overnight means Monday at 4:30. Went out to mock it up to make sure I wouldn't need to drill, adjust, etc only to see the bull bar had a small dent. If I were putting it on a 2012 the dent would not be big enough to worry over but I am not putting it on my new Jeep. So, today I did nothing TO or WITH my Jeep bc now it has no bumper.

Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
I did a test mpg run towing my camper with 40s on. It is a big nope. It towed it fine at 68mph. Stayed mainly in 6th gear and occasionally 7th gear. I average 10.4 mpg. Big nope for traveling. With 37s on deadlock wheels, I get between 13.5 and 14.5 mpg depending on conditions. Knocking about 4 mpg off by running 40s means getting fuel every two hours when going across country. I think there are places out west that I would not be able to make it from gas station to gas station without carrying extra fuel.

Yep. I run 37s and haul a 12ft flatbed in west TX. Luckily I-10 has enough truckstops. I did push it too far on an initial trip and had to bust out the Rotopax.

Didn’t do it today but on Wednesday, threw the hood decal on (thanks @pixeldecals for the great design). Used an old credit card to get the air bubbles out; may have scraped too hard and nicked a few spots but we’ll just call them faux battle scars. Shout out to @chevymitchell for lending me some Rapid Tac so I could position the sucker!

The locking, cable-pin style hood latches didn't last. The locking mechanisms stopped working. likely due to rain & dust. Installed these from Kentrol today.
To which hood latches are you referring... DV8?

Speaking of more pics, in the sense of female empowerment, I would like like to see more pics of @BbyGrlJJ working on her Jeep. We live in a world of male chauvinism and male privilege, so in order to help remedy this you should post pics of @BbyGrlJJ working on her jeep. Maybe in some high heels or an evening gown. And in the summer, less....for female empowerment. :angel:
