Started a over a month ago and just working on it after work and weekends when I can or feel like. Re-installed the front part of my rockhard cage.

I bought flood lights over xmas and installed on Gobi rack, with all new wires to floods and spot lights on Gobi roof rack. Moved the aux fuse panel from passenger side to driver side engine bay. Moved In-cab winch controller to right side of steering wheel.

Working on setting up a push button for tailgaters so brake lights come on at a push of the button and off when I release button. Seattle drivers leave no room for weather conditions.

re-installed my piaa fog lights and after pulling apart the PDC to see if I could re-arrange the wires to utilize the stock relay correctly, I will just need to run wires from the factory wires to a new relay and feed power directly from battery.

I hope to wrap it up by before the end of January so I can start welding up my roof top tent rack for my M416 trailer. My buddy and I are planning on driving the BDR in Wa state this summer for our major yearly trip.

Welcome to ROF!

My LJ looked like that after wheeling in the San Juan mountains (Ouray, CO area.) I spent $15 at the car wash and a year later I was still chipping dried mud out of the frame rails.

Resurrecting this thread from the dead.

Helped my friend make bad decisions today, using a reciprocating saw on a newer JK?!?...





He just bought this thing recently and it has a lot of nice parts on it. We added a Warn zeeon(?) 10,000 pound winch and what a PITA to fit it in a Rubicon HardCock bumper. No welding involved but there was a bit of cutting and grinding involved.
Done and done and it's pretty sweet how tucked in it is. Yes, the bumper does have a dent in the middle.

I ran mine with no lift or armor on a medium trail. The trans cross member area and gas tank areas seen to be what contacted most. After just one run I had a couple bolts on the cross member that were beat up. the cross member itself was tweaked, the gas tank skid was scraped up, but not tweaked. I did hit the front bumper in the area of where you are putting the mopar skid. I have a Rockhard aluminum front bumper which has that skid built in. So that lower front skid is needed.
