So to catch up with the lighting here are my front indicator lights all installed along with the markers.




I also got my brake/turns done out back as well and added some single very hidden led's for reverse lights. I got some power into the harness and everything works fantastically ...say for needing a proper led indicator relay.



With a small amount of "bracket adjusting" using only the most specialized of tools (cutoff wheel and a hammer) I was able to get the fuse box and fuel system components to fit.




So sort of awesome news. My amazing wife once again slipped a fast one by me and ordered up my rocker guards last week and they showed up yesterday I must say I think she wants this thing done as much as I do.




As per normal awesome welds from Rokmen. These things are beefy landing at a nice hefty 42lbs each. bye bye any hope of mpg's



Because of the Rokmen fenders and the extra wheel well space they afford me, I do have some trimming to do to make them fit perfectly.



So conveniently enough the same day she ordered my rocker guards was the same day I ordered my steering box skid from Rokmen. Which I was going to install last night but that's just not going to work apparently. I need to figure out which side to cut/grind down to make this thing fit.



My front recovery point on the drivers side is juuust in the way a little. I'm thinking grinding the skid (which unfortunately came powered coated) because I think grinding any beef off a recovery point seems not so intelligent. What do you guys think?

Just read your entire thread and I'm pretty jealous. Your Jeep is going to look nice when it's done. You've also given me quite a few ideas on how to spend my deployment money, Which shouldn't take to long to do lol.

Hey TJSteve, welcome to the forums and thanks for the comments. I'm happy to hear that I have done something to inspire along the way.

Where are you being deployed?

Here are a few pics I took tonight.

I ended up taking everything apart, cutting off this part of the mounting bracket and drilling a few holes to mount it with some hardware and put it back together on the fender. Things are close but everything thing fits and it's sturdy enough.

I also got my rear bumper in. Needs a little more clearance for perfect fitment before getting painted which Ill be taking care of later on this week.

I also measured the front bumper where the tow hook is and its just over 1/2 inch, so Ill be doing a small amount of grinding on that for proper fitment of the steering skid.

I spent the day in the garage and got my rear bumper fitted, along with my rocker guards and the steering box guard (what a pain this was because of my bumper). Now I have to remove it all and get it painted.
