Mounted an ARB single compressor in the engine bay. Was a simple, straight forward install with the ACM mount.
Are you using that for lockers or airing up?

This is a bit overdue, but added LYTES to our rear Motobilt bumpers. Put some LED bolts where the holes for backup sensors would go and also used Rigid Radiance Pods, with amber backlight. More details in our build thread. Love it so far! Def enough LYTE back there :)

I installed a MC 2.5" dual sport suspension with shocks, new front driveshaft, lower front lca's, and the Rocksport drag link and tie rod.. I haven't added bumpers or a winch yet but I was still surprised how much over 2.5 inches it was.. drives and rides great. My wife's short and she wasn't real happy the first time she tried to get in 😬.... pics to follow

Wow, where did you find it?(part) and how much?
There was a thread on here where a member wanted to trade his SOT for a hardtop that I replied to and that deal didn’t work out. A week later, another member messaged me and wanted to trade tops and we got it done, my hardtop for his SOT, all brackets and hardware included. I had to drive 1,700 miles to do it but it was worth it! Took about two hours to swap tops everything was plug and play.

After the first deal fell through, I ordered one from LKQ, talked to the salesman asked him if it included everything, explained what I needed and was assured it was in “A” condition. Paid $2100 including shipping. Two weeks later what arrived was not in “A” condition and all of the brackets and bolts had been thrown out, to make matters worse LKQ in Michigan doesn’t know how or doesn’t care to make a suitable crate for shipping and the top was damaged. To make matters even worse I was told it was red, the top that arrived was punkin’!

I refused to take it and they did not want to return my money, I stood my ground and finally got a refund.

After a couple days I cooled off and did some digging on what it would take to make it usable, I went back and made an offer and we agreed to a price. I have ordered the missing pieces and will repair the damage and have it painted GCM and then swap the tops, the GCM on my wife’s white Jeep and the red on to mine.

LKQ is an option to buy one, but I would only do it if I could go and remove it from the wreck so you get everything needed.

Airing up. But not just for recreation.
We have a fleet of 12 vehicles for our contracts that regularly get punctures - we drive through a lot of new home construction areas and are constantly picking up nails/screws. This makes it much easier for me to run out, plug the hole and air them back up. We have two small portables, but it's musical chairs as to which vehicle has them at any given time (and they take forever to fill up anyway).
I get to write the whole setup off as a 'business expense" 😉

One hardtop, one softtop, two SOT’s, a Sunrider for hardtop and of course one JT hardtop. Looking for a softtop for the JT but there are fewer of those around.

Found a set of front and rear grab handles in soft top box and installed them. Makes it easier for vertically challenged wife to climb in lol

Installed the Tuffys tailgate lockbox/table. I’d love to show the table aspect of it but the box was completely beat to crap and the cables to hold it open weren’t in there.
