The "Delicate Flower" Build

Hey Everyone. First vehicle I've owned that I really love. I've owned some really high end vehicles and the Jeep is just me. I love the character and how it's not a couch on wheels driving down the road in a sound proof room. I love the noises, the shakes and everything about it. At any rate, I have a couple of posts I'll be making below as the build stages come up to what I have to present day. Here is some general information, along with stuff that it came with from the seller

This is why we keep SEMA off our Delicate Flower. Looks a lot better already and that tailgate looks bad ass.

@Delicate Flower, thank you for the shout out, I'm glad we were able to help.

I appreciate you sharing the photos of your ride, the action shots show the results of your hard work. It looks amazing in the wild.

The Icon Rebound Pro wheels and Nitto Ridge Grappler tires look awesome.

Current Day.

Wheels & Tires:

Replaced the Black Rhino Wheels and Patagonia Tires with Icon Rebound Pro 17" Wheels & Ridge Grapplers 38x12.50x17. I ordered an extra for a full sized spare which is mounted to a RC carrier in the bed. Thank you @Discount Tire for the hook up on the tires.
Apex Quick Deflate Valves
Any idea how much lift is on it?

I try to not criticize any ride if I don't care for parts of it, because it's not mine.

BUT, I am SO glad you took the Grumper off the front, looks MUCH better.

It honestly didn’t bother me at first…for like the first day. Then each day I hated more and more.

Just tell it like it is. That grill made Stevie Wonder flinch.
Just the Angry grille, I can tolerate, not like, but tolerate.

When the bumper gets thrown in and goes full on Grumper, I want some C4 and a detonator.
Well, these unexpected "upgrades" happened from my stupid AUX battery dying. I had to do something because once it failed I had literally 10 minutes of driving before my JT was inoperable, dead. I couldn't imagine getting stuck in the woods and that happen. Literally no heads up when it died. So the first thing I did was upgrade to the Gen 3 Genesis Dual battery system. I did buy their "G Screen" but will be installing that at a later date.


Then, once that was installed I ran into my first problem. The 813 under the hood compressor mount, once replaced, literally sat on the positive terminal's (top right in pic). So I had to rip my compressor out. So I had to locate an under the seat mount (which I believe is better anyways) and purchased the Innovative AT Products inflation system, and he literally just came out with a custom locker manifold that works with ARB lockers. Perfect.

Then I ran into two other problems. Because of the new compressor location, I had to cut my mud mat to fit. Also, the Haltec chucks are not compatible with the APEX Quick Deflate Valves because the engagement depth is too long along with APEX designing their valves 3 threads short of standard, so they leak. So then I had to buy the new Morr Flate chucks designed to work with shorter valve stems/APEX valves.


So all that because of the AUX battery, but I do believe I improved the Jeep with these upgrades. I'm still waiting on my RCV axle shafts so I can get everything else above.

This is too complicated for me to understand but it seems quite sophisticated and impressive!
Hopefully the batteries are okay. I heard that the batteries delivered with some Genisis kits are junk, fail right away, and are difficult to get replaced under warranty.


Hopefully there is a little head room between the compressor and the seat…after running it for ten minutes, it can get seriously hot…
