Also stripped the driver side flares and painted the passenger side flares

And added a small touch
Nice

Cool. You'll wanna go slower and leave plenty of room to stop. When I pulled mine to AZ the TJ knew it was there but did good. I only had the 4x8 but it weighed in around 1600 lbs.

I picked mine up with a borrowed pick up or I would not have been able to rent one.

I towed a U haul w/o a top on and they didn't bat an eye

Front brake pads (wagner thermoquiet ceramic) and rotors (wagner).

Rotors had some real bad spots - not sure what causes that?

I had to add some 'real' lug nuts to the job since some of the chrome 'caps' flew off while road-testing.

Nice.

Direct from U-haul, but not everyone enforces it.

Towing vehicle and trailer advisements:

If your towing vehicle is an SUV, it must be equipped with a hard top.

Bottom line is use your head.

Cracked open the new 8.8. Everything looks good. Time to start ripping the guts out.

I might be able to help you out with the fog light. Send a pic of the other fog light brackets to make sure it's the right one.
