I just ordered some Warrior products Rear corner gaurds with led cutout's , I also ordered a flush mount led reverse light. I'll be reusing my led tails, Before I install them I will be hitting them with some bedliner to get the texture to match the sliders that I ordered last night

They are the e autogrille sliders ( smittybilt clone ) they mount to the sides and the center body mount and extend about 3" under the sides I paid 215 for them shipped. It was cheaper to buy them then but steel and a welder

Hmm I linked a few of those off ebay the other day, they have some for 179 and 183 with free shipping.
Here is one of them. http://www.ebay.com/itm/87-96-Jeep-Y...7daa3b&vxp=mtr

I ordered some windshield light brackets and the same hid off-road lights that are on the. Xj for my YJ but the 4" instead of the 7" since they are actually 2" larger then the advertised size

Corbyn,
It's a Convection type block heater that splices into the lower radiator hose. it keeps the coolant nice and warm . I noticed when I use it I have no starting issues and it runs better instant heat is nice too .

My windshield light mounts , Rock sliders, and Supertop with 2 piece soft doors arrived today, Now I am just waiting on my HID offroad lights, and flush mount reverse lights to arrive
my next process is trading my hardtop for some 4.10 axles from a 4banger and running them as I collect parts for a 8.8 swap

Maybe it's different in SLC, but around here a decent hard top would fetch a bunch more than a pair of stock 4:10 axles... Can you sell the top outright and just save the $$ to do the axles all at once? 3.07's with 33's won't be the end of the world, especially for the short term after you shed some weight without the hard top.

Jeeps. Lotsa Jeeps...

It's a non defrost non wiper top but pretty much every jeep here has a hardtop. I'm still undecided on selling if out right or trading it.
