Today I installed the Rugged Ridge Spartacus tire carrier and hinge bracket kit. It went smoothly and this is a nice piece of gear for the buck. Everything worked out great. Also installed the Rugged Ridge third brake light inside the rear tire to complete the trifecta. Happily recommend everything.

Swapped out my Sahara cluster for a Rubicon one with LEGALLY corrected and matching mileage. :rock:

Note: Mileage correction is legal as long as the mileage is corrected to reflect the actual mileage on the vehicle. Otherwise, changing the mileage to reflect something else is illegal.

Spent way too much money:
- Ordered new 17" rims with 37" KO2s
- New Rugged Ridge tailgate hinge and Teraflex spare tire mount
- Set appointment for Regearing to 5.13
- New ARB diff covers
- Tazer Lite to make sure everything runs properly after the upgrades

Enough to make me nervous telling my wife!! ;):whew:

Installed a Westin WJ2 full width winch bumper, skid plate, Rugged Ridge 12.5k winch. Also used a 500amp isolator controlled buy an AUX switch. I got 1/2 an inch droop on stock suspension. When my Rubicon suspension comes in I will put 3/4 spacers upfront to compensate for sag and rake.

I wouldn't want to be behind you at night.

Couple small things:

1) Tried the RK 4.5" springs on our MC GC 3.5 lift....ended up swapping all springs back to the MC 3.5 springs. In the rear, it created a rake. In the front, the springs never seemed to sit perfect for me on top. Selling those, if interested - https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/rk-4-5-springs-2-full-sets.68458/

2) Also tried the Desert Does It front seat jackers. We used the full inch, so both pieces of the product. First off, we really like the new position of the seat. It feels way different, but seems better on the back. We'll need to drive it a while to see if we need to lower to the .75", but we're happy with the first impression. The bad - @DesertDoesIt - when i bought 1 item for $100 , i assumed it was for both front seats. I was wrong, so $200 for 2 seats. Looks like only the drivers seats in our Jeeps will have the jackers and the passengers will have to be jealous. I honestly am not going to spend $100 a seat. As a consumer, this should be $100 for a pair. Anyway, here's a few pics:

After:

I did take a pic from the passenger door looking in, to compare the seat angles, but it didnt pickup too well in the pics.
Ahhh man. I was considering doing this spring swap in the future.

OCD level 10...its the small stuff that bother me... Finally covered the lower pinch seem with a Powercoat Metal trim piece. Eliminates the unfinished look at the bottom and hides all those small holes that were driving me crazy 🤪 also compliments the fender black trim 💯

Big Mods this time around :LOL:

Removed hard top and installed soft top on the other half's 80th a couple weeks ago. Installed some stickers on mine this past Monday. Made appointment for both to have PPF installed the beginning of April, ordered hood decal for Sloopy (the 80th AE), a topographic hood graphic and windshield chaser for mine from @pixeldecals.
