Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

I didn't want to shave the housing but I also remember from my previous Jeep that the big lip on the bottom of an 8.8 is nothing but a rock catcher.

So here's an upside down shot. I mounted the skid so it's flush with the lip...it's bolted to the housing using the webing...



Here's a shot from the rock's point of view...

thats rad!

That's pretty cool. Are you going to add fenders to it eventually? Be pretty cool to have TJ rear fender flares or something on it.

It may be ghetto. But it looks like it will work out. Good idea!

It's only going to work until he gets it wet. I did that once and the air passing through a wet filter decreased drastically. I'm going to do mine again this summer, but figure somethin else out.

also, why use duct tape when you can silicone it ?????

I did some work on the TJ lately. Hope you like it:

1)

Added two 12V outlets. One is mounted as per the picture below. The other is up under the dash, out of view with my GPS power cable plugged into it (but still removable in case i need it )

2) A dash mounted on board air gauge. I had one previously mounted on the tank (it sits in the back) but stuff always kept falling onto it and the longest the gauge would last is a few months. This should last a while and it looks kind of spiffy
Routed an air line below the air bag and behind the glove box and up under the dash.

3) Added mounts for my maglite. Now i'll always know where it is. I was doing this upside down from the drivers seat and the bottom came out crooked ... oops. But it still holds the light just fine

4) Mounted some IPF 968 driving lights to the front. They kick @$$ !!!!!! And their wiring is so nice and simple i didn't have to make any mods or anything, perfect is all i can say. I'm sure Lightforce would be more impressive, but for the money i don't think you can do better then the 968, honestly.



here is where i mounted my switch. I was not going to use it, but after plugging everything in i realized it lights up green when not in use, and amber when lights are on, and i liked that, so i stuck with it.
I mounted it between the gauge cluster and the center console, with the wire running in between and barely visible. Quite pleased how it turned out.
