I know the weather has been Great!
You said swapped, did you have two sets or did you just have them done black? I ask because I would like mine black also. Thanks

Not a big deal but installed the hitch today and ordered a smitty built MOD bumper so I can trade a guy for his FF full width. Lift coming soon, but unsure of how much with 33's .

Installed my Poison Spyder hood louver...pretty easy install, but they need to include some kind of gasket to go between the louver and hood.

Did you get the powder coated or bare version?

Installed a WarmSeats seat heater on the driver's side and finished wiring the switch for the rear-view camera. It is really a backup camera with the video playing through the Clarion VX400 I transplanted out of my wife's Liberty. I installed it to a switch, instead of using the backup light so that I could switch it on at any time. This will come in handy on the trail, and also when towing. The camera is mounted on the rear bumper, right underneath the spare tire.

Considering a forward-facing camera mounted somewhere mid-way underneath that I could switch to, as well.

That looks great, nice to see it on another flame red 2dr for reference. I'll be doing this soon but I think I'm going to try and do body color

I like those mirrors. Where did you get them at? I'd like to grab a pair myself for these crazy winters we get near Chicago.

I found them on ebay for $124, but that did not include the switch or harness. I got those from these guys, If I saw them first I'd have ordered the whole package from them.

I seen that you have an 08 and are adding the 12 heated mirrors. Are they plug n play? Or Do you know how you are going to install them?

What would the Forward-facing camera be for? I could see it coming in handy when off roading to see the clearance until it gets ripped off.

Looks Good. I have the Leveling Kit and next is the same tire size.

Question I know the Rubi shocks help with lift on a 2Door but do they do anything on a 4Door?

Forward-facing would be for clearance of rocks once they are out of sight below the hood line.

Here is what the rear facing camera looked like on the trail today:
