Spider Shade: This shade is much higher quality than the rugged rigid sun shade that I have in the JK. It also helped with spiders falling on my dad and I this weekend.
Warn m8000 winch: I got this winch for a steal at $400. I have already used this winch 2 times when I slid into the ruts and high centered the jeep. The first time we used it the winch nearly brought down the tree we were winching from.
Warn winch plate: This plate is very substantial although it is not made to work with the front bumper that is on the jeep we made it work my stacking washers under the rear bolt. This winch plate will hold up until we replace the bumper at the end of the year.
Arb Air compressor: I picked up this air compressor for $100 and it seems very substantial. I am yet to try and use the compressor to air up the tires yet.
Rock Hard bumper Brackets: The rear bumper was very loose and we had broken a bolt trying to tighten it I got these brackets to support the bumper. When installing the bumper I broke the bolt a second time trying to install it with the brackets.
This weekend my dad and I went out to the local off road park. The 4.11 gears did better on the freeways then what we thought they would. Due to the recent flooding parts of the parks were closed but it was good to get the new jeep out there and see how it performs. We got stuck 2 times but the warn got us out both times. During the trip we learned the best ways to use the lockers in the mud and if were to go back we wouldn't of slid into the ruts and gotten stuck.
The first time we got stuck we should have put 2 tires in the rut and 2 out.

The jeep is currently having issues with the front outer seal on the axle leaking and the rear axle grinding. We took it into a shop last week and it did not fix it so we took it back today.
The next thing for the jeep is skid plates, rock rails should be here the 4th of july then it is a new lift and 35s inch Kevlar.
