Chopped the stock bumper and found a way to mount the fogs using some plastic from the bumper.

I'm looking to do the same here next week is the pennzoil the best

Good ol quick disconnects mean I'm actually fully disconnected, and when **** goes wrong, you're not paying $500-1000 for repair/replacement

True, quick disconnects can fully disconnect, but I installed a manual disconnect on my rubi sway bar to ensure I'm disconnected every time. I think it's easier than disconnects, and as long as you have the right length of sway bar end links you should see no restrictions in articulation anyway. The manual I installed was the off road evolution no limits manual disconnect. Really simple. But I can always install disconnects or my old Sahara sway bar.

Buried It to the Axles

Finally took my new Jeep off road. When driving down a trail, the jeep sank in the mud to its axles. Took me a bit of time, but did get out. What a muddy mess! But man what fun I had!

The oil change indicator system doesn't factor the oil type/brand or condition of the oil. It's based on distance, time, temps, cycles and so on. You should have reset the indicator and rocked on.
