Well the UPS man visited me today and dropped off some work so added the Skid Row Front Skid, Smittybilt Seat Covers, 4WD Floormats. Seat covers were a little hard to put on for a seat cover but man look and feel great nice snug fit.

Good choices of mods so far. What seat covers did you get? Do they allow for side air bags?

I got the smittybuilt seatcovers I bought the front seats and the rear was free. They fit nice and snug as you can see and they do allow for the use of side airbags.

looks good so far.
i've actually been wondering where the heck to get fire extinguishers. my local jeep club requires you have one if you want to go on trail rides. looks like i'm off to walmart tonight

God grant me the serenity to accept the impossible trails I cannot crawl, courage to crawl the twisted trails I can and the wisdom to keep tire side down.

Looks great so far! Maybe reconsider the body lift you have planned...4.5" suspension will be enough for 37s with no body lift, and plenty more than enough for 35s Mike

It's coming along just fine!! For the CB, did you have a rack up there? How did you mount that? I opted for the 75wxst ONLY because I couldn't figure out where to mount my 25LTD (which I still have NEW, in box...).

I went to homedepot and got a small pice of aluminum and 2 self taping screws. It works great no problems and ran the wires around the winshield down passenger side to battery and antenna on tailgate.

Well got some parts today sorry for pictures will try and get a camera soon.

1. ARB Rear Diff Cover (Great Product Easy Install time 1hr 30min had to let RTV sit for 1hr.)

2. Rockhard Engine Skid (Great Product and durable, CONS: Instructions are straight horrible)

all in all took about 2hrs and 30min with wife helping and issues with instructions on Engine Skid. Also installed Master Craft Grab Handles for 2011 JK bolt in rears and strap fronts excellent product as well.

Installed a Transmission Cooler today. Here is installed didnt bother painting brackets can't see it with my mesh grill anyhow. Easy mod no leaks working great so far, I don't have a heat guage so can't verify the change in temps. It was an autozone Torqflue part number ended in 516.

Trans Cooler: 60.00 Autozone
Tubing x 6ft: 15.00 O'Reily
Barb Connector: 6.00 Home Depot (Pipe Fitting Isle FYI)
Hose Clamps x 9: 8.00 Home Depot (Pipe Fitting Isle)
Bracket Mateiral: 5.00 Home Depot
Thread Sealant: 5.00 Autozone

Had to buy parts becasue I'm not at home so had to buy stuff I got already but not with me all in all great install took an hour.
