Looks good. Glad you had time to get it done.

You can cut the "snout" off the factory carrier and put it back on to protect the camera, instead of having it exposed to damage, if you like.

I have a post on it somewhere, if you want I can dig it up.

Oh good idea! Was wondering how I could cover up the camera a bit. Yes please post pics if you can find them

Finally flexed out Ruth a little bit. Had some snow piles that I could get on. Didn’t disconnect the front but was curious about the rear. Really need to get rubicon fenders on Ruth before I wheel her. I wasn’t even fully stuffed. Still had plenty of bump stop

Looks good. I can see where you want some flares with a bit more clearance though.

Ruth flexing👍👍

I now can see how much difference the Rubicon fenders make.

There is also the Rugged Ridge ones out finally, and they have the cool chop in the front built in.

Yea the extra 2” from the Rubi fenders will make a huge difference

I thought the RR chop was only the bracket? Did they release fenders as well?

I just seen the ad for them two days ago, and they look good.

Front and rear renders, and the chop is integrated in the front, and is plug and play.

I think it was Quadratec where I seen them, but I'm not certain.

These tires working out for you? Good in rain and snow? Thinking about getting a set for the JL. And do you have the 2.0 or 3.6?

Yes they are doing awesome! They were biting in the snow really well the past two weeks! Drove effortlessly in 2wd thru about 4” of snow and in the wetter heavier 8” they did amazing! Much better than my coopers on knuckles.

As for the rain they do great as well I don’t feel like I hydroplane thru the deep puddles.

As for road noise they are super quiet. Really enjoyable to drive on. Ruth is a 3.6 btw

Nothing really new with Ruth the past few months. Been looking into gears. Thinking 4.88 but don’t know what I need with these new axles or what axle I have up front to be honest.

got the front windows tinted to match the rear. Keeps the inside much cooler now while driving to the beach every weekend.

Also picked up a set of factory side steps off a 2018 for $100 today. I think the steps just help clean up the side of the Jeep a bit. Took all of 15 mins to install both sides with hand tools.
