If it doesn't bend or give in any manner then I assume if it gets hung up on something it either snaps off at the threads or rips out the antenna and mount and all?

if this thing breaks its going to be my fault ... mines a little less then 10 inches high, i see this holding up against a small twig or branch .. but like i said if this thing looses to a big branch its my fault for getting that close to a big enough branch.... and either way its so low that if something breaks it it would do some damage to the stock one... ill keep you guys posted

Installed my MBRT exhaust that i ordered front THMotorsports, sounds great. Actually quieter than expected, but with a newborn that rides with me, a good thing.

Also my AC was overcharged, so when at the shop we evac'ed the system and recharged it properly. The i had a chance to look at the turbo fitting. Is this the one that needs to be replaced?

GOBI roof rack arrived today, I installed it in under 2 hours. It's well built and easy to install. I'll tackle the ladder part later this week and post pictures to my build thread.

You're going to love that rack. It takes a beating. I don't think I have a single spot where I have gone through the powder coat (I solo load some pretty heavy crap up there sliding it along the rails).

What lights did you install on it?

Haven't yet, but considering Rigid LED lights.

I can vouch for that setup personally.

I have a pair of of SR 10's on the front, and a pair of the 1st Gen Dually's on the back. My only complaint might be that even the flood pattern is a little more focused than I would like on the back. The dispersion lens would have been better (they didn't offer that when I got mine.)

Mines a little bit smaller then I'd hoped but still looks great
Nice bud! I have been loving mine. It's very solid and looking killer!

I ordered a 2" RC lift 2 weeks ago (i know it's not today, but I'm in Afghanistan and can only get on so often) and plan on installing it on my upcoming leave. Provided it gets there while I'm home of course. Next order should be tomorrow or the next day and will be 1.5" wheel spacers. I can order ones for a JK and they'll fit no problems right?

05 WK Limited with 2" RC, 1.5" wheel spacers, 265/70/17 Duratracs, K&N drop in, expanded grille mod painted black, tail light guards, tinted tail lights, Superchips Flashpaq, and a 5.7 HEMI!!!

Sold: 93 ZJ Limited 4.0 lifted with some goodies
