I just had mine rebuilt. I used it, and abused it (pulling a 5k plus trailer) for 175k miles approximately. If I get another 175k of trouble free miles out of it, I'll be dancing in the street.

I REALLY like the color of those roof rails. I agree 100% that on a darker Jeep it really makes for a nice look. Me with a White limited and black bumpers it'd look like absolute poo but for yours its SLEEK... if anything I'd say it makes the Jeep look newer

Jeep had a display set up at the AUSA conference last year. They had a body-armored JK variation with a MK19 on top. No pictures allowed, unfortunately, but they had some sweet stuff.

Yeah, for 20 bucks they served their purpose to keep cops from harassing me. They have been gone for a while now since I left SC.

If SC stands for South Carolina then there is no way unless you lived in the city or something lol. Around here you can run with your tires sticking six inches out from your fenders and cops would high five you and say "cool"

Yep Sumter SC. Got stopped 3 times between Sumter, Columbia and Florence. Got 3 warning, but figured it was a matter of time before a ticket would get written by a cop that was having a bad day. Cheaper to make crappy flares than pay tickets.
