This is not by any means one of the major super cool upgrades that you find on this site but sometimes the little things can be fun to do. I just received this item from Jeepinformant via Amazon and was happy to see that this flashlight appears to be very good quality. Love the way you can zoom the light from pinpoint to floodlight with just a twist. There are several of this type available but if your interested in looking at this they come in all the JL colors.

Also added to the roll bar the Smittybuilt 769541 First Aid Storage Bag to the other side. Nice to have these items within easy reach but out of the way when not needed.

It looks great Dave. Sadly, those might, at least where they're currently installed, get in the way of my putting my Soft top back on come Spring.

I'm not sure if you're familiar, but a segment of the trim on the Sports Bar comes off on each side exposing mounting points for the soft top.


Enjoy!

Thanks RussJeep. Sadly I only have the hardtop now but happily I do have the Bestop Sunrider on order. We're at 7200 feet elevation so the sun can be pretty intense without precautions. I don't know if the soft top is in the cards. Would be fun to have though.

Got my JCR Jeep Rock Slider Classics in paint. Install on Friday. Keeping fingers crossed on the body bolts.

Use a heat gun on any body bolts to soften the factory threadlock.. Those look nice - you coming Saturday to HF?? I hope to see them. My stupid Rampage retractables got delayed yet again now TILL FEBRUARY!!! :mad::headbang: so now I'm reconsidering cancelling and getting something else. I like the new Westin Snypers but those are not out yet. Also been looking at DV8 but they are not frame mounted. Not sure how much longer I can go w/out sliders! :angry:

Yepper, I plan on being there. Went the last 2 weekends to get my feet wet. They're officially wet. Looking forward to meeting you.

Yeah I do like those I will take a closer look.
Their website sucks. We’re going with the Westcoast frame mounted sliders. You have to click on the completed builds tab or something and they are on the bottom. Also getting their bumper/tire carrier they are releasing in dec

Yeah their website is so bad I basically don't want to buy from them. :D
And I am a webmaster for like the past 23 years... :facepalm:
I noticed they had 3 different ones, each $100 more than the other, and they all look like identical from the pics.
Do you know the differences? Are the west coast ones more narrow or something?
I was really holding out for a triple-tube setup like the Westin Snypers or Rampage ones had.
Poison Spyder has a nice setup but they are 2x the $$$ and not worth it imo.

The west coast ones are frame mounted and the main difference I see is they look smooth on the bottom and no lights. I personally didn’t want the lights or the headaches that accompany them on any brand or style. The cheaper ones would be considered steps with light duty protection, the medium priced ones are sliders with the bonus of steps and then the westcoast are the biggest and baddest. Atleast that’s what I’ve come up with. One bonus would be that I think you can pick them up and save on shipping. We’re planning on coming to HF after thanksgiving and could bring them to you or if you pick them up you’re welcome to come out to my shop and use the lift to install them.
