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
Although it says they are made by Paramount Restyling # 51-0040

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

Do you use a block heater? Or is that a trickle charger?

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.

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.
