I had to pull the window tint off of my front windows to get out of the ticket I got last week. It's going back to the tint shop on Tuesday to get retinted though.

Also installed a bull bar on Thursday and ordered the fawkes fab bull bar relocation kit. Kris from fawkes fab is great to deal with and was a real help.

I enjoy the way that the avila wheels look in black.

Installed front tow hooks, new battery clamp and a junk yard vacuum hose. Last week the factory trailer hitch, wiring and bezel. After 2 weeks over owner ship it's changed quite a bit.

Honestly, if I were to ever switch the rims on my WJ I would want the Avila's. I saw someone who painted them black and they look sooooo good on a black WJ.

That looks really good.

Threw it on the trailer with my wife's KJ to go get a light weight before loading all my tools and junk into the backs of them for the move to MO.

22,150 lbs combined, almost as heavy as our "loaded" weight coming out here from TX. I guess the extra parts on the truck, the 22k trailer (pulled a 14k before), and the WJ instead of the YJ made a bit of difference!

Interested to see if we surpass 26k on the heavy weight, its gonna be close.

Where you moving in MO? Saint Louis guy here.

BOT: my iPhone charger has been acting weird lately. When plugged into my car it will light up and turn off all on its own. It does the same in both the power outlet and the cigarette lighter. Not sure where I need to start with this.

Did the akebono upgrade today and painted the calipers as well. At O'reilly auto it cost 215 with pads, brackets calipers and necessary hardware and then you get about 60$ back in core fees for the old calipers and brackets. Pretty good deal if you ask me
