Today I finished the install of my cobra 25nw that I have had installed in all my wranglers now. Also ran the coax to the 4ft Wilson ant. The mounts are from ebay I have used them on other wranglers and they work great.

Looks good. I remember seeing that snorkel box at SEMA last year at their booth and thought it was the best looking one out there. If I ever go that route thatís the one Iíll be getting too.

I like the bumper I just wish I would have waited like 2 weeks longer cause then they came out with the same style bumper but with cutouts for the stock fog lights to mount. The LEDs are bright and a cool look but they are made in china and I have had to replace 3 round ones and 2 long ones already since I got the bumper last aug. the fights are not to bad priced at about 38 dollars a set but still rather have the stock fogs. And the company on ebays customer service blows.

Cool good to know... I saw these bumpers on eBay and I liked the price and the looks of the LEDs but I had the same thought as you did and I would rather have the stock fogs as well. Now if ridged made the LEDs in that size I would be all over that! Ill take a look at the one with the stock cut outs. Thanks again for the review!

Lookin good.

Where in FL are you? Looks like you're up north a bit? Also, do you have any photos of under the hood after the snorkel install? I'm very interested in that piece.

Looks good so far. Maybe take the sport sticker off ,it kind of distracts the eye from the "Rubicloned".

Thank you for your service !!!

You did the exact same thing I did! I had an 08 Rubicon and never really used the lockers much, I don't rock crawl. I bought a '12 Sport S package with 430NAV, 3.73, trac lock, uconnect, added rubi wheels and tires and rock rails. Next on my list is an 8000lb winch and a Detroit Truetrac for the front.

I love the look of the new Rubicon rims. Have you decided what budget boost you are going to get for it? Im at this stage too, so I wonder what your thoughts are on the subject.. Thank you for your service.

Glad to see ANOTHER black JKU Sport S being built around here! Reminds me of when I first got mine.
