I will not be participating in this forum as of 8/31/2018. It's been a fun ride, but it's time to move on. Take care. - Dustin

I am just installing the USB/12V console in the rear console and perhaps taking off those stupid euro bumper spacers.

What are y'all doing?

I have powder coated wheels to mount with new tires, LED headlights and fog lights, a cargo bed liner, rear seat cup holder delete part, small anteanna, a couple of decals.

Sounds busy! I would be putting on my LED taillights, but @mymoparparts royally screwed that up with a lamp that was packaged broken.

Need to start reloading some ammo for my next trip to Vegas with my wife. While she's doing her stuff at the convention / workshop she goes to, I go out into a couple of the local desert shooting areas and shoot a bit. Last time I did that, I probably too about 400 rounds with me since I was flying. This time I'll probably be driving (since the JL should definitely be in an broken in by that time), so I'm thinking around 1000 rounds should be enough this time around. I think that happens in November, so maybe the weather will even be bearable.

Yeah, with all the clothes and shoes that my wife packs, that might be a concern... :)

1000 rounds of 10mm or .45ACP is probably only 50-70 lbs...

I woke up ready to install my new skids from M.O.R.E. but have run into some issues with my JL. First, my motor mount bolt heads are rounded off and I’ve never even touched them before today. Any chance the factory is doing this on purpose? Second, it seems I might be missing the front cross member. Can anyone take a look and see if your motor mount bolt heads are rounded off and do you have the front cross member like the one circled in green in the stock photo attached? My JLU is a rubicon with the 3.6L and manual tranny. Maybe the manuals don’t get the cross member?

Tuffy Security Deck, New Dash and Sound bar speakers, and Topsy lift brackets... I think that is it...

Your motor mount bolt head looks the same as the one in the M.O.R.E. oil pan skid instructions. Haven't crawled under mine yet to look, but I am assuming they all look the same. Are you required to loosen it as part of the install?
