In other news. I installed my rugged ridge snorkel this morning and picked up my freedom top hinges from the body shop. Those will be installed tomorrow l.

I was able to use the voswitch and the snorkel by removing the voswitch off the mount and sliding it down the side. Not ideal but let’s me have both.

Looking at this bracket also, you can choose the diesel. With that option it still didn't fit? Can you elaborate? Thanks
Just got a hold of Carter there, he said my issue is being corrected now. I’m not the only one who got one before there was a separate diesel option so they’re doing swaps. You should be good now!

So it's basically a tracking device... I have mixed feelings about this.
I'll go one step further than "mixed feelings"..... hell no! The "trip and mileage tracking" is what does it for me. Some sates are pushing to tax people based on how far they drive, and this is how that starts, by giving them the capability to do so!

100%. It won't be long until these are mandated, so keep your old plates as long as you can!!
In other news, I vacuumed out all the sand from the beach 2 weeks ago. Washed off all the bugs. Better late than never, I'll have to get a pic.

Fascinating. I can just see so many misuses of this initiative... Will be interesting to see where we go from here, but most likely will be adopted quickly across other states to save manufacturing of actual plates cost, but still bring in revenue for the state...

Got a bath then time to take it off! Doors off, top off (ish—since I may need it for the last minute monsoons that may still pass), sunrider installed. Ready for fall!

Jelly, Kristy! Still a bit too hot/humid over here in South Texas, but pretty close to being able to take the top off for extended periods. With the cab cover I got from Quadratec last year that gives me the flexibility to go to work naked (so to speak) and not worry about errant showers during the day, that has been a super addition to my growing Jeep accessories collection...

I installed the D&C Designs Lucid VSL side lights today. The hardest part was getting to the turn signal wire in the passenger front wheel well; otherwise pretty straight forward. I haven't seen them at night yet, but the write-ups from others show them to be very bright. These don't come cheap, but the quality and paint match were very good. I wired each to a different AUX button so I can turn them on/off individually. You can also see I used Hyper-Dip to coat my whip antenna, and bought body colored mirror backs from Distinction Applied; everything turned out nice :like:

Aaaaaaaaagh! Dammit, this thread is killing me, Smalls! There are too many awesome ideas and upgrades for me (and my pocketbook) to keep up with. Something else added to the Christmas wish list. My wife is going to love me even more! 😆 Thanks, John. A lot...

Lost my first windshield on my 22, does that count? Rock hit very bottom corner then it came up 4 inches above dash and shot across to the passenger side. Probably last until spring since Winter is so hard on them anyway.
