    We are finally taking the time to do a build that we both want - i just hope she agrees!

    2019 JLR bright white 2-door

    Here' the plan:

    35 KM3s
    No lift (yet - gonna fight it as long as possible)
    Mopar beadlock (capable)
    Warn Zeon 10s Platinum
    67 designs mount(s)
    A bunch of Factor 55 gear (it really is quality stuff)
    A whole lot of other small updates, some unique, some cliche, but we will love them

    I’m still waiting to get my wheel rings back from a powered coat place, so they are still sitting in the barn. But, I love the look and tread pattern. I’ll post pics and an update when I get them on. I’m hoping for this next weekend.

    I finally installed the winch. No issues, save for having to elongate the rear front skid bolt holes (2).

    I also installed the Mopar tailgate table. A little disappointed, as one of the latches is a bit loose and I had a rattle while driving. I just used some electrical tape around the latch and that seems to have done the trick. I'm kicking myself a little for not going with the Springtail Solutions table...

    I had relapse in my vow to spend less on the Jeep and purchased an ARB compressor and the Innovative JK Products under-seat mounting mount/kit.

    I installed everything yesterday (used AUX 4 as indicated in IJKP instructions). It was actually less of a pain than I originally thought. I did have slight rubbing on the compressor (far passenger side it - right on one of the ribs) from what I think is the seat catch. It barely hits, so not really worry. After installation, we did a quick test and everything works as advertised with no leaks.

    I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet the unit was. I worried about the under-seat mount for this reason, but it turned out to not be an issue for me!

    I didn't take many pics, as the lighting was terrible, but here are a few:

    I finally got the fake beadlock rings back from the powder coaters and got the 35x12.5x17 tires mounted on the Mopar beadlock wheels (still no lift) The tires didn’t balance well at all, and I’m trying balance beads out in them now. We made a long run further north into WI, and vibration was a slight issue, but so was the headwind, so the jury is still out. We are going to spend the long weekend sans kids hitting logging roads...still a lot of snow here when you get back in the woods!
