I'd install an actual extinguisher mount. That might smack the **** out of you in a bad accident.

Well, in the Pentastar it also takes oil pressure into account and Mobil 1 has a bad reputation for thickening up as it ages (due to the fact that they use pour point depressants rather than viscosity enhancers, and the pour point depressants wear out). In any event my Jeep is still under warranty so it gets oil when it says it wants oil, I'm not going to cheap out on a $40 oil change when I paid $35,000 cash for this Jeep (after taxes, registration fees, etc.). Especially since it takes me a whole 20 minutes to change the oil from pulling the toolbox out to putting the toolbox back.

I like it. That slight imperfection in the left housing gives it character. Now get rid of that eyesore of an air dam.

Not bad at all.
The hardest part was finding which screws/bolts I needed to run with my fog lights. The holes PSC put in were way bigger than the stock screws from my original bumper. I ended up getting some SS bolts and tapping the holes.

That and fabbing up the crash bar shield. I made mine myself instead of ording from PSC. Hence why there are no holes. I don't the holes they put in them.

I've got the same bumper, love it. If you got the lower skid as well, install it on the bumper before installing the bumper. Makes it much easier to do.

Removed hood spring. Voila...no more hood flutter. Not sure why people bother with zip ties. Swapped out stock steering stablizer with a gently used Rancho one I got for almost nothing.

Greetings from down under. Well, after buying my MY13 JKU Overland (RHD) on 1st April (no joke), I have finally managed to trawl through all 18,000 posts (almost) on this thread.

It's funny to read when you guys are getting hot weather, we are starting to put hard tops back on.

It has been a great read, but the downside is I now have over 20 things left to do on my JKU.

I dont seem to have photo rights yet, but so far I have:

AEV rear bar and tyre carrier
AEV tubeless front bar
Rigid Industries 20" LED light bar
Rugged Ridge - hood gas lift, door handle recess guards (average), windshield frame light brackets, tailgate CB antenna mount (needed trimming with AEV wheel carrier)
VRS 9500 lb winch, synthetic cable
Front grill mesh
Dual battery (slimeline in rear beside fridge and draws - Remco 110ah, cTek 250S dual smart charger)
Engel 39L fridge (20 years old, but still runs well)
Air horns
Intenal LED replacement lights
AEV 4.5" SC lift kit (finished with 6") - love it !
Uniden UHF CB radio
Rear LED light for cargo area
Synergy grab handle (drivers side); tough install
LED light under bonnet

Next on the list is:

Sliders - maybe Smittybuilt
35" tyres - dunno brand, but probably A/T's
TJM pro-lockers (front and rear)
ARB compressor
5.13 gears
Rear seat covers (bloody kids)
Roof rack (Out4x4)
sPod (in transit)
Dead pedal (in shed)
AEV fuel caddy (in shed)
Tailgate table (WIP)

Potentials are:

Auto transmission cooler (do I need one ?)
Drake Automotive fuel cap
ARV corner guards
Dual exhaust system (Corsa)
Flat fender flares (no hurry)
Skid plates (maybe)
Solar panels for roof (attach direct to cTek)
Fox shocks
RIPP supercharger (I wish)
Mopar portal axles (I wish)
Factor55 winch hook
Roll cage
