Great build thread.
I saw you post on the Street Side Auto pricing of the Rock Sliders shipped. I had to order a pair now that they are now re-stocked the same discount code still worked too. Having free shipping sweetens the deal even more. I got a Warn M8000 from them for a good price a few months back too.
Nice install pictures on the rockers. I for sure will cut a 2x4 for my floor jack to help install.
Any other tips, suggestions, afterthoughts for someone looking to install those rockers?

They are awesome, very solid for the price. Have 2 people, it helps when some one is holding the rocker while you squoosh it between the tub. Soak the 3 body bolts good with WD-40, a large breaker bar helped a lot to loosen the bolts. It tells you to cut 3/16" off the stock rubber bushing, I didn't do it, and didn't notice a difference. I found it easier not to remove the bolts completely, just enough to slide the panel in between the tub and bushing. Also in the directions it will tell you that on each side, one bolt may be tough to get too and will require a 1" hole saw. In my pics you can see where I had to cut the tub from the inside, I just used a dremel and larger drill bit, made the hole just large enough from the inside to get the nut and washer on. Just torque the body mount bolts to 30FT LBS when done. You won't be disappointed, any questions send me a PM, they go right to my phone.

I ordered a mml at the same time. So did both when it went in. Already had a 1" body lift. Haven't really driven it much since putting it in. Have noticed more vibrations in the cab than before. Not sure if something is rubbing underneath being all tucked up tight or if the drive line angle is more than the CV can handle at the T/C. May end up needing to get a SS SYE instead of the standard SYE I have in there if it is drive line angle. Weather hasn't been the best lately so I haven't had a chance to get under there and really look up in the tunnel area for any kind of contact with anything to cause vibs. Mainly happens when coasting versus under power. Tranny noise is much more noticeable having it up in there more. Specially under light throttle while at speed. Hard to explain that one, really.

Attempted the paint one mirror and came out all blotchy, so I stopped.

One of the fan speeds stopped working, so I replaced the switch first and it didn't fix it. Going to replace the resistor now and see if that fixes it.

I just went right to the Jeep dealer, it was $30. You can get them online for about $20, but they are not the mopar brand.

Very easy to swap in a HPD30, the shafts slide right out once you unbolt everything. Getting the hubs off gave me a challenged because they were frozen on. I recommend renting a slid hammer from auto zone, it is worth it. Just take your time and soak everything with a good penetrating oil. You can see in this pic, one the knuckle is freed from the ball joints, it just falls down.

ECGS is awesome. Awesome service, and fast shipping.
