    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    Jeff, have you considered the newer JK clear turn signals? I think it would really clean up the grill by eliminating an unnecessary additional color.

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    Wow, Jeff. Even by the high standards your previous work has created, this looks incredible. I wish really wish this was available. It'd look amazing in gloss black on my Willys!

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    Great work Jeff. It's amazing how much better the proportions are on this versus the stock JK grill. All I can see when I look at my Jeep is the awkward area at the top of the grill where the Jeep logo is, and how 'right' it looks with with the taller slots on your mold master.

    Great work Jeff. I'm really looking forward to seeing how it turns out. The attention to detail will really show in the final product.

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    My favorite is the clear lens ones off the earthly CJ-5's. Having trouble finding an example I can hot link to, but they're similar the to the CJ-2/3 but with a clear lens and orange bulb.

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    Looks great Jeff. The proportions look perfect. Can't wait to see the finished product. My personal choice for my JK would be to keep the directionals in the stock location, which is a change from the preference I had a few months back. I've since added an AEV front bumper, and they made a...

    Looks great... I'd definitely run one! Can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    I was going to suggest that with the market lights once I saw the first post... Then I scrolled down. I've never liked the factory locations either. Good call. I'd even consider a little inboard of headlight centerline.

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    It's hard for me to say until is the JL in person. A benefit I see to the bend is breaking up the big flat slab that is the JK grill. I didn't hate it in the YJ or TJ, but it's hard to tell if it would help or hinder on the JK since the scale is so different. I like the idea of the other changes...

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    I agree the taller slats are a big improvement, but don't underestimate the impact of the headlight protruding into the outer slats. I think the nod to the CJ with that detail is worth keeping as well. For that to work on the JK grill, I'm assuming the slats will get wider as well as taller to...

    JK Overlanding/Spare Carrier Hood?

    Did you see this at SEMA? Looks pretty great, though I could do without the fender vents. Price doesn't seem unreasonable considering what it includes... http://bawarrion.com/shop/bawarrion-m-7-jk-font/

    Overland LJ

    Looks more like an AEV hood with a DIY highline. Awesome regardless... Something I'm considering down the road.

    Clone of ARB Intensity LED Driving Light/Light Force 250!

    I'm giving a pair of these a shot... I bought my LJ with a crunched DS fender, and no fog lights. I'm guessing whatever impact did the fender damage also took out the fogs since the wiring remains. I was going to pick up a pair of used factory fogs, but couldn't find any for less than $100. And...

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    I think it would be a good choice... I fear adding a fourth color would make it unnecessarily busy as you already have the red, black and silver. If you decide to go with a different color, I would suggest removing the silver appliqués.

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    I was thinking painted to match, with the roof painted to match the silver Sahara bumper inserts.

    What did you do to your Expo Jeep today?

    Installed Thule TB60 tracks cut to length for the JK's hardtop. I still had the towers and bars from my JKU, so I got everything fitted up with my box. Ski season will be here before I know it! I played with the front/back position a bit and this seemed to be the best spot. The bars are as...

    JK Wrangler 3.8l vs 3.6l Pentastar

    I sold my 2012 JKU Sport last year and earlier this year bought a 2011 JK Rubicon with only 6k miles. For my driving, which is mostly a 6 mile commute, the 3.8 is fine, and if I'm honest, I prefer it around town. While it definitely pales in comparison on the highway, it feels torquey and more...

    "Bruce" the 2014 Jeep JKUR Build Thread

    This. And thanks. It really was worth the piece of mind. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone doing something slightly beyond their comfort level.

    "Bruce" the 2014 Jeep JKUR Build Thread

    When I installed the 3 1/2" AEV kit on my JKU, I did it a week before a 1,000 mile road trip. I have a good relationship with my dealer, who does a lot if Mopar and AEV lifts, so I paid them for an hour of labor to put it in the lift and go over everything. They did it 30 minutes, and didn't...
