yikes. I'll wait for a day my kids are gone to try that one. Maybe I'll start with the vents and the little decals I got.
It did take me a few hours to get mine how I wanted it, and I only have a single (just matte black, no red). Love how it cuts sun reflection and glare, totally worth it!

Installed the Metal Cloak rear diff skid plate & swapped out the pain-in-the-ass Go Rhino mounts for a pair of Diode Dynamics. Plenty of flexibility to pivot cubes outwards and the windshield can be lowered.

Got my plates after 10 months waiting. 1st choice TOP PIN was rejected due to the Urban Dictionary. Who knew, little rediculous but whatever... ELK HNT works .. get it on the Jeep tomorrow

So they kick back the seemingly harmless "TOP PIN" (I had to look it up.... I had no idea it was a thing) and no one thought to say 'ELK HNT' three times fast? ;)

Installed the Rhino Rack awning. Very easy to install. I won't have it on all the time. Just for beach or camping trips

Stylish awning on a stylish Jeep. Love the flamingo mural on the side of your Jeep! I have the same rack and will probably get one too someday...

I asked myself the same... so I actually removed a pair from the fenders.

Installed the Sunrider for Hardtop

and installed some RokBlokz quick release mud flaps. (wish i would have got the rear ones too...maybe I'll order some. Mainly was sick of snow and ice collecting on the rear fender and blocking the door...)

I’ve been looking at those flaps for the front and back. Can you let me know if you think they’re worth the $$ in a week or two?

thanks Grady, you gotta set what your expectations are when installing it yourself or paying someone. I have no experience, will it be 100%? I graded myself a 90. Would definitely do a better job second time around as most things. Best newbie advice I could give is lay plastic over engine bay during disassembly, don't want to lose anything in that abyss lol. Also the soapy solution has to be right. I didn't have enough soap initially. You will know right away even though you soak the surface and product generously it still felt sticky and unable to move vinyl around. Right amount, you can easily push it around without effort to get your edges lined up. Couple of pics to show you what you have to take off after the insulation is removed. We like the hood, still 50/50 on the side vents

Hi, I must have missed out but what is this about? Hood liner removal?
Sorry to ask.

Yep. Maybe a little overkill, but not a bad precaution. FYI - if going down the road of adding that decal, you'll want the proper tool to remove the plastic clips that hold the insulation in place. I did and still damaged a few, but I blame that more on temperature (it was maybe 45 degrees in my garage so they were a little brittle).

Agreed! That insulation is very fragile and wiggling out the plastic fasteners reams out the hole even bigger on the insulation panel. I hardly call it overkill, consider it a plan of attack lol. I always grab a pack of those Jeezuss clips:facepalm: every time I do some interior panel work or this. Did manage to break a couple, but picked up a bolt and used it as a fulcrum under the tool and rest came out nice and easy and unbroken.
