Congrats on your jeep. The true blue is a nice color.

Few updates. Alignment has been done And the jeep drive great. Toe was slightly out. I managed to get the front skid on and received a few more parts.

Got rancho exhaust pipe loop to fix the front drive shaft issue.

Got some rigid D2 s in a flood pattern and the brackets to mount them in the bumper.

Still need to mount lights and Rugged ridge switch pod.

I got a few more things done on the jeep.

Installed the Mopar enhanced rock rails and shortened them.

I finally got around to installing the rigid 20" LED light bar and rugged ridge switch pod. The light bar is nice and bright pictures don't do it justice. I will try and get better photos when I get a chance.

I got some roto pax stuff in. Got a mount for my tundra as well. Still waiting for the TF mount to come in. Guess it is on the slow boat from China.

No real new updates other than I have been driving it quite a bit. Got a warn Zeon 10s winch that I still need to mount. I am hoping that the added weight of the winch will help with the slight wandering and drivability issues I have been having. It was so windy the other day it was actually pretty hard to keep the jeep on the road. Any one have any feed back? Experience similar things?

Hey all, very new member of the forums (first post actually). I bought a True Blue 2013 JKU 3 weeks ago and i'm just starting to make a list of mods i want to install. As far as exterior accent color goes, what does everyone think pairs as a good accent for the True Blue. I am thinking of keeping it simple and going with a blue/silver (chrome) look but i could also go with a more flashy gecko green accent.

Your build looks great so far! It's giving me plenty to look forward to

Personally I like the black grey and silver accents with the true blue. A bright green just might be a little to much color.

Nor call guys and gals

I am general manager of two collision shops in the GILROY and HOLLISTER area. Looking to expand business.

I have a wholesale jeep account with access to most jeep parts that you could get through quadratec and or 4wheel parts. I will be willing to try and match any deals you could get out there on the web. I could ship or you could pick up through the shop.

Our shop could handle all you install and repair needs. From lifts bumper and accessory installs to trail and collision repair and paint.

Give us a try 35 years in business with a reputation for great quality and customer service.

P.m or email
