Actually had to go look at my list because there are too many things to remember.

Near Term:
- Diabolical Slipstream
- Spiderweb Shade (2 piece)
- Exposed Racks Roof Rack (for both hardtop & soft top)
- Mirrors for Doors Off Driving
- KC Hilites Flex LED Light Bar for front bumper/bull bar
- Phone holder
- Tailgate Table

Longer Term
- 35's (when stocks wear down)
- Lift
- On-board air
- Winch
- Additional external lighting
- Lots of new gadgets I haven't even thought of yet

Now ask me to compare this list to my bank account... :facepalm:

Shhh...Don't tell my wife.

BTFU, fellow Boilermaker!

I'm waiting on my Mopar Performance Rock Rails... should be here this week. Can't wait to get them on so I can cover up that body pinch weld and get a step.

ham radio install - Kenwood TM-V71A. Since I want everything reversible will use a through-glass antenna on the side window of the hard top. Have used them on my other cars and taped it on and checked swr - tunes well. Base of the radio will go under the driver's seat or maybe screw the mount up higher in the back. Detachable face plate will use 2-sided tape and mount in front of the shifter. Have mocked it up and doesn't interfere with shifting and still can get to the small cubby.

Have you considered the Topsy hood bracket?

Not a shill, I just plan to pick one up to mount my dune flag when I go up to Silver Lake MI.

With the through-glass I don't have to run coax into the cab - it's already there. Also gets it a bit higher up, and VHF/UHF antennas are typically less sensitive to ground plane issues relative to CB. I was worried that I would have a higher SWR given the fiberglass top but it tuned down to about 1.2:1. Of course a dummy load tunes flat but that's another discussion :D

I do have a Comet hood mount that I can use if I need, it's just stored at another location. Life is an experiment...

Gotcha. Just figured I'd throw it out there as an option, mainly because I want to know how well they work and how easy to install.

I still have a free Jeep oil change but one day I'll install this F106SX: New Generation Fumoto Valve with 14mm-1.5 Thread Size.

Some sort of headliner and winch are my big to-do’s at the moment, I’m sure that’ll change, but looking forward to driving with the top and doors off now that the weather is nicer!!

In my possession and awaiting time to install are front and rear Synergy track bar reinforcements for the frame ends.

Showing up in 2 days is a set of LOD Destroyer sliders.

Ordered last night is a bunch of Metalcloak 3.5" lift parts to replace my Dynatrac 2":
Front and rear dual rate springs
Front and rear 6-packs
Front spring correction pads
Rear spring spacer kit
Front and rear microcellular bumper kit
Rear sway links
Rear sway bar drop brackets
Front upper and lower shock relocation brackets
Rear lower shock relocation brackets

I didn't do the full Gamechanger kit because I've already replaced all control arms and rear track bar with Synergy and front track bar with SteerSmarts.

Tonight i will be ordering a pair of Rock Krawler no limits front sway links, which came highly recommended by fellow member Roky.
