Here is what I have done to my JK today and Last weekend.
Today I put on Olympic Corbra front bumper,Olympic BOA rear bumper and Olympic Reversa Bars/sliders. The Olympic stuff looks great and is HEAVY. Has a good feel to it. Hope it hold`s up good over at Super Lift in Hot Springs on the next run I make over there.
Last Weekend I put on a Rough Country 4inch Lift and Rough Country Dual steering stabilizer with quick Disco`s.
I took off a Sky Jacker 2inch BB to go to the 4inch. Wished I had just went with the 4inch to start with. The RC lift is real nice. Everything bolted right up with no problems at all. The RC 2.2 Shocks that come with the kit are very cool with the built in bump stops.
Took only 3 hours to put everything on. Probably could have done it quicker but with about 10 people working or standing around the BS was flyen.

Didn't have much time, but I took out my OLD TENTRAX trailer with my new JK, to see how she handled on the road

PERFECT, next will be the rocks and compare to my XTERRA

I hear ya, I put the hard top on last weekend (and still hate it) becuase I dont have the corner door frame pieces or the back window or the clips for the rear bar on my soft top, bah! and its been raining. (got caught in the rain yesterday with no top or doors, not too bad till you have to stop a at a light) I should have them soon... but any of the case:

It was windy as hell today, 25mph+ but I had the freedom top off along with the doors off, took a ride to home depot for a few things, picked up a few straps to fasten the freedom top pieces up against the side. ( Leaned it agaisnt the driver side rollbar and ran a strap from the rollbar where the rear passanger seat belt is and down to the loop where the rear seat is usually hooked. Worked perfect.. but damn was I a bit cold.,

Installed a Curt hitch receiver.....Now I need a 12 inch long stinger (with off set) and ball ... I hope this will also protect the tailgate and spare from "slight" rear enders with the coming winter here..

cyberpunk, the paint looks hot! IM not too sure how the stone white will look in mine but the idea is stimulating! I see the AUX plug used; I use my PSP as a MP3 player and have got to say that the Infinity.....stereo has SOCOM2 sounding awsome and makes the drive-thru much more fun not too mention the ease of use for music. The Jeep loves NOFX and the DK's!

I installed my KC light brackets on both sides. Now I need to mount and wire up the Hella 500's before it gets too cold.
