Installed the tow hooks, as well as my transmission wiring adaptor as it was leaking a bit.

Went wheeling with my older daughter yesterday (she's my Jeepin buddy). Took the airdam off (AJ - I think I like it without now that the front sits higher). The OME and GY Wrangler Authorities definately did their job. My last excursion yielded no pics so I brought the camera this time and her and I traded off snappin shots. I have more photos but photobucket has me at my wits end right now.
Anyway - here's some of what we did:

Finally did the pinch weld mod yesterday. I also had to replace one of the windshield washer nozzles.

I went to the dealership and bought it. It was $30 for one nozzle and you may be able to find it online for cheaper.

IM a little nervous too. I'll probably get mine next week... I'll post a thread about it after some tests.

Did you had to buy bolts or everything was included ?

I gave mine a quick wash (funny how attractive a simple puddle is. Was in a forest drive so a little drifting was in order).

Also trimmed a bit off the back of my hitch before I get to putting it on so I can hopefully fit a full size spare underneath eventually. I will say that hitch was some pretty hard steel. I was going easy on my cutting wheel cause it was my only one and took me about an hour and a half to get all the way through. Now that I look at Buda's thread I don't think I took enough off, but we'll see.

everything was included, three clamps for the four pieces, and two bolts for the cat flange plus a sticker

everything went super smooth except for the top cat to muffler bolt. i dont know if it got cross threaded or just jammed up but it ended up stipping out. could get at it with vice grips or a hack saw. ended up barely having enough room to get at it with a grinder/cut off wheel. hot shower of sparks all over my face. but after that smooth sailing

Since you haven't installed it yet make sure when you do that you put the bolts in backwards (from the inside out). Then you won't have to cut the excess off the bolts after the install. You could also replace them with carriage bolts which have a much lower profile head.

Got some trail damage from a stupid rock that rolled up and hit my rocker panel and bent the corner of my driver side door. Wish I had those 4xguard sliders. Also possibly screwed up my alignment
