Hahahah I really dont know why I bought that car, but it was nice saving gas money wile I had it. And thank you! I like to do the things I like the way I want the first time. Ive learned throughout the past couple jeeps. JK stuff adds up real quick, lots of aftermarket compared to what Im used to haha

Its all about the way you want your jeep to look. More sophisticated or more bad ***. I chose bad ***

Heres a better shot with my 50mm 1.8 lens. The other lens is taking a dump on me





BTW, My Solid Diff cover should be here tomorrow for the 44

Debating if I want a matching front or if I want one from BTF or someone with that kind of bulky style. Cant beat Solid's price though

Picked up a couple things.. Got new headlight bulbs, i chose the silverstar ultras 4000k bulbs. Its amazing how much brighter these are over the stock yellers. I dont even need to run my fogs now, speaking of which now I need some for them too. Also picked up a fire extinguisher, for the future camping trips and hot summer days. You just never know when you might need one! I picked one up at home depot for 20 bucks, and made a velcro strap and a couple zip ties until I get a mount for it here soon.

Coming on order soon!

- Solid 30 cover
- ARB 12v mounted air compressor w/ their orange hose
- Coverking front and rear seat covers, couldnt pass up the sale they were having on quadratec!

Going wheeling tomorrow, should be some pictures in the future as well

You can see how much whiter they are compared to the fogs



Tada!

Yessir! I love it but am thinking about the Bestop Trektop NX soft top, just because the hardtop is a two person job. No one is buying hard tops right now though, so Ill have to wait to get it.

Added the B&M transmission cooler today. It was low 90s today so working with sweaty hands and transmission fluid sucks. I was cringing when I was cutting the hose the first time haha. All turned out good. Only a couple things to look out for. They only give you 4 hose clamps, when really you need 6. The other two I used on the cooler itself. So just something to look out for, because you will need 4 at where you make your splices. Also, needed 3 feet more line, worked out perfectly and only had less than a foot of hose leftover.

Also, make sure that the hose splicers are tight, i had a leak in no time so I added some thread sealer on the supplied parts and it seemed to fix the problem. All in all, it would be a really easy project if it wasnt so damn hot outside! Now I need a temp gauge. I know for sure that the tranny didnt like this hot weather and hills, it was shifting a little slow and searching too much.

Hope this helps anyone whos looking to do this to theirs as well. Id recommend it for only less than 70 bucks! Cheap insurance.

Picked up my ARB compressor today with their hose line. Stoked on it, just need to get a switch panel and a mounting bracket for the compressor. I think ive seen that most people go with one that mounts to the brake booster. Any other options?
