Not yet I filed an insurance claim...they ordered katskin vinyl to reupholster the seats, and my body shop will clean what they can and replace what they have to. Just playing the waiting game now

Just ordered the Poison Spyder Customs evap skid, ARB diff cover for the front (not worried about the rear for now/don't want to spend the money on it now), and the EVO draglink flip kit from Northridge. Here's to hoping they get here before Friday...though I think that's doubtful. I can hold off on installing the flip kit, but would like to have the evap skid and diff cover for the ride next Saturday.

Edit: I guess I never updated a previous post - I said that I ordered the Synergy high steer kit, but my local shop, Trailquest, wasn't able to get me any better deal than ordering it directly, so he told me just to get it direct. Went a different route

Just noticed the STTs man. Looking good and those tires are unstoppable in any terrain and fairly quiet on the street!

Hope the interior works out for you. And I don't know about the Poison spyder skid but the rugged ridge was much cheaper and beefier in my opinion?

Yeah I'm real happy with the tires so far, though their testing has been minimal to date. Excited to see what they're all about next weekend

It was only 99 and with the free shipping in combo with the other stuff, I shouldn't have any regrets I have read that the PSC install can be a pain, though

With zip tie mounting blocks, next to the zip ties at lowes. I used gorilla glue to attach to the grill, but make sure you let it dry for several hours, preferably overnight, before securing zip ties.

Got the mount and fairlead installed today...I had to drill out the holes in the mount to fit the bolts for the fairlead. Used a makita electric drill that has locked on position, and about broke a few fingers when it jammed and took off out of my hand. Unplugged as quick as I could, just a sore hand. Don't use the locking feature on yours if you're drilling in a precarious position, or through hard steel!

Hopefully I don't kick myself for this.

No I'm selling the Jeep because I don't like the speakers


















































































yeah ****ing right! haha, no only selling the hard top! The heep leaves for vinyl seats tomorrow morning, I'll have it back Friday morning, selling the hard top to a member on here from NC on Friday at 1, then off to Natural Bridge Kentucky at 330 am fridaynight/saturday morning. 17 pages of this boring stuff and I'll finally have some results to show for my work

With all the Jeeps around here I have not found a single hard top for sale, looks like I may have to look at a distance as well.
