Finished the Rugged ridge snorkel install. only had one snafu...I broke the new lower air box and had to get a replacement from rugged ridge.

Not sure why the pics come up sideways.

Put hard top on for winter.
Was going to wait a few more weeks, but pissed that I pulled some of the stitching out yesterday when I zippered the rear window before it rained.
Upholstery place I took it to before is closed for two weeks. At least prep it for next year.

Top down, doors off, taking the back roads to yoga, shopping, and dinner with my daughter. Life is good.

Not trying to be a Richard but the plate that the shackle mounts are welded to doesn't look thick enough.

Did a trial run on bed lining the tub using the tailgate. This Duplicolor bed liner has a better finish but is a lot harder to apply than Hurculiner IMO(I've used Hurculiner on 2 previous vehicles)..

Installed my Wireless Warn 3.5" lights in the fog light area. Had to fab up a bracket to hold them, but they are in there nicely.

The wireless remote is a joke though. You pretty much have to have the remote right next to the sensor wire coming out of the remote box under the hood. Need to call warn and ask them what the heck their plan was there..

Got the 285/75R17 tyres and new wheels yesterday. Think it needs a 2.5" lift.

You know you can disconnect that harness and let it hang out of the way if you want to add another coat or paint under the block.

I didn't know that... I'm already done though.. Was quite a bit harder than the Hurculiner though.. May do a write up if there's enough interest..
