I love the red seat belt. Do you have a link :please:
Search the forum. There is a thread regarding the red seatbelts. I think the place was called seatbelt restore or something like that. Have to take your seatbelts out and have them change the webbing

Absolutely. Definitely a volume difference. It has somewhat of an exotic sound to it.
If you have any time, a sound/vid clip would be appreciated. I know how we all hunt for a nice exhaust. Either way - cool mod!

I haven't done anything for a skid plate yet, I was contemplating trying to make something myself, just haven't. The bumper does come down low enough that may not even need anything, except the 2 vertical mounts the plastic air dam were bolted to kind of stick below the bumper like 1", maybe less so I'll want to do something.



The license plate bracket was a 2 piece, both from amazon.

Appears they are working on a skid plate.

So here’s how much sticks down, it I were to take off the other bent sheet metal it wouldn’t be as much, but haven’t looked into it at all. Nice to know they’re working on something.

Thanks for a great writeup. I'm surprised it's not more popular, although I realize it's pretty new. Maybe if dealers would put it in the winch hook section instead of the shackle section...

Is yours black or gunmetal?
Thanks. My Sidewinder is Black. I had real trouble trying to find the Gun metal finish one. They make a red plug pin isolater for it, but I can't think of a reason why you would need it.

It's an ARB Intensity knock-off from Amazon. Shocked at how inexpensive it is, yet has performed great for almost a year. It's ridiculously bright. The brackets are made for a 3" bar, so I have rubber spacers wrapped around to make it fit the Mopar winch guard bar.
Thanks for the info. That is surprisingly inexpensive. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and the information.

My first tough Jeep mod and first real mod ever outside of audio upgrades

This beast was a pain!

Decided to do the winch install as well just havent hooked the lines up or spooled the rope.

I could have done the install myself if it werent for the mountings bolt plate that is only secured by those plastic square pieces to hold it in place until you put the nut on.

Tried meself but kept knocking the bolts out so had the neighbor hold it up as i guided each one in.

Next weekend....rear bumper!

Yes sir! Just dont make the mistake of installing fogs upside down like I did lol

Did some tests and I dont see an issue with "blinding" but Ill eventually turn them the correct way. Its just a beast of a bumper and I dont feel like removing it right now. Definitely feels like the OTHER car will hurt more than my JL if anything were to ever happen though!
