Nice. I like that decal on you hood too. I think that it should be standard from Chrysler. One other thing that you might want to consider though, a camera. You wouldn’t need to spend a lot on one, as there are lots to chose from at reasonable prices. That way we can see just how good your Jeep really looks.

Just consider it part of your Jeep must have accessories. After all, you’ll be snapping pics left and right of your Jeep in all kinds of places including really cool wheeling spots and tech shots to just name a couple. You will enjoy them so much more than cell phone pics.

Well Did some more mods

Wife said no more "MAJOR MODS" till i get back to GA so did this instead. Mod 1 fixed my flat prior to leaving for work yesterday at 0600 was a great wakeup present. And Then did the flare cut mod. My only question is what did you do with the liner in the back and front" Pictures would be great of your liner.

Man those side steps/armor zap a good 4 to 5 inches of ground clearence away from you.

JK's do not need body lifts like older jeeps did and by doing so you are really adding not needed body roll. I would suggest getting either a 2.5 to 3.5 in suspension lift and you will easily be set to run 37's.


My build:
2011 COD Rubicon Unlimited
2.5 pro flex Rock Krawler suspension
Rock Krawler shocks
Teraflex Big Brake Kit
Teraflex Speedbumps
ACE Engineering rock armor
ATX Ledge Wheels
GY MTR/Kevlar 35's (but ready for 37's hopefully will be here in a few weeks)
S-Pod (one of the best mods)
Rigid Dually LED lights
Rock Krawler Alum Front Stubby Bumper (only 35LBS)
K&N Drop In filter
Warrior Tube Fenders
Mile Marker Scout Winch

Diablosport Trinity tuner (not working till update is ready)
Ripp Supercharger (1/2 installed but waiting on Diablosport tune)
MBRP Exhaust (on order)

Appt. made for sleeves and gussets



Photos of my builds are at Polishpunkoffroad.com

I second that on the RH skids instructions. Mine came with a 4 inch by about 30 inch plate that matched the holes in the main plate and was not listed on the parts list - but nothing in the instructions as to what it was for or where it went - so I figured it was something for the entire system and not needed unless also using the RH Transfer skid. Come to find out it's a spacer that goes between the engine plate and crossmember to lower the engine skid away from the exhaust cross over. Without it the e pipe just barely touches enough to make a rattle - but only when the engine is hot or while starting.

And the pictures only cost them printer toner - they are quite worthless otherwise!

I have the rattling problem even with the spacer. I bought the tranny skid installed that, then put on the spacer, then the engine skid and mine still rattles on my exhaust so I’m done messing with it a pain in the butt moving around all that steel by yourself. I figure when i get my new exhaust i will trim off an inch from them crossover and tuck them up more. I plan on getting a 3 inch life and 35’s with all fox shocks, steering stab, adj control, trackbars and such saving up for the big buy.


Well I installed my VIAIR OBA CONSTANT DUTY SYSTEM today. The system works great. I have to get air hoses made with factory crimps looks better and don’t have to worry about houses blowing off. If anyone knows were to get these made at let me know would be very helpful. So we mounted that tank in the spot shown in photo don’t hand down but maybe 1/4 inch we took 3/4inch off the factory tank legs made our own bracket welded it to the Jeep and then bolted tank to bracket no issues. I ran all the houses as shown in the photo for the pressure switch and the actual compressor line. I used the black lines that were with the kit to run to the pressure gauge and filler end. I installed the gauge as shown in my Jeep my wheel slipped out as you can see when the wind conveniently smashed my knees into my sliders (Painful as you might imagine the words I had for that). I ran the power from my CIG lighter ( IF you do this same location splice into your dimmer control for night driving). I then had to purchase the JeepSwag air compressor bracket for the actual air pump. The bracket it well built but sits close or on some of you brake lines so I put rubber house to prevent rattling and have had no issues. I have since cleaned up the pile of wires in the photo and made it all nice and neat for a clean looking install. I ran the filler plug behind my bumper and made a quick release bracket for it. I couldn’t put tank in the engine compartment since it is the 2.5gal which does fit but you will not get your oil filter off unless you remove the tank. So what do you guy/girls think any suggestions or comments?

Well got brackets done first time welding did pretty good and coated them with bedliner. Then I used some cotter pins for a quick release type system although I might switch to wingnuts to hold it tighter.
