I installed the well-regarded Beamtech H13 LED bulbs, taking care to ensure their proper aim after the headlight housings were refitted. I had my fill of the OEM tealights incandescent bulbs.

The small gears at the upper left of the housing serve as the adjustment mechanism when the headlight housing is in situ. Turn clockwise to lower the beam, etc. Easy peasy.

This was the first use of my new M12 ratchet. Nice little tool.

Yes, 10mm.

Having removed the grill assembly previously to install the Bolt hood lock, doing the same today was quick and easy. I can understand the reticence of those owners who are doing that for the first time, though. Get the technique wrong and it'd be easy to crack or break that expensive piece of plastic when applying the needed force to undo the many retention clips.

Done and done.

Today I realized I have an Axial corner light that is burned out. Its been only a few months they've been in and already dead. Tried contacting the shop I ordered from and they offered a $15 credit for another set. Who in God's name would waste money on a failed product? Tried searching for someone direct and there doesn't seem to be such a thing. Anybody else have an issue or know a contact? I was expecting them to have warranty against this.

Check your auto insurance policy. Some do windshield replacement with zero deductible. IDK it that makes a big hit on your premiums, but worth asking about.
Good suggestion. For some reason we do have a deductible for this and it's basically the price of the windshield. I'm debating wether or not leave it and just replace the windshield when it comes time to sell it. Probably sometime next year.

i had the same issue. i ended up putting a light coat of Sugru Black putty on the underside and stopped all the leaks. Love them
Funny thing is right now I can claim that they keep the rain away, lol. Since installing them I have had NO RAIN to test them out and each day the forecast has been rain every afternoon and now supposed to be sunny till Monday, lol

Diesel JLU specific: While removing the fuel filter skid plate (to see which screw I broke off & replace the other 2 with better quality ones) I decided to add a fuel filter drain hose. This will make it a much quicker, cleaner and easier job if/when I need to drain the water. I used a 1/4" ID fuel line.

My Tuffy lockbox rattles like crazy on this mornings drive. Wanted to return the darn thing. I found a thread on this forum that had some very good fixes.. got rid of the spacers that the install guide tells you to use and mounted directly to the tailgate without the plastic trim. Also put on some marine grade weather stripping around it. Silent as can be.

I also fixed my RSE power side step sliders. My driver side step wiggled a bit and I installed a spacer supplies by the manufacturer and it’s as solid as a rock now!

I reduced the glare thanks to this excellent blackout made by @pixeldecals !

Surprisingly, other than being about a millimeter off center, it was an easy install. With my clumsy self I fully expected to set my whole town on fire while attempting this, and there is not a bubble, wrinkle or crease - and the masking tape that they installed was plenty strong enough to keep all of the floating portions in place so none of the lettering gaps look uneven.

Personally, I prefer the fact that it goes under the windshield support/hold downs over the factory design which has gaps around them.

Finally install the EZTop Freedom hinges. I had to modify them to work around my sunroofs and then I had them painted when I had my snorkel painted. I’m quite happy with them

Do these lock down? How do you keep them from destroying themselves against the top of the Wrangler?
