JK Show & Tell Whether they're just poser shots in your driveway or hardcore action shots on the trail, if you've got photos or videos of your Jeep JK Wrangler (or any JK for that matter that you think is worth showing off, inside or out), we want to see them so please post them here! Likewise, if you are wanting to see a photo of something specific like an aftermarket JK part or poser shot with a specific setup, this is the place to ask for it.

Nothing fancy except that despite calendar showing it happened in March, Spring actually began yesterday. Switched to soft top!

Enjoy the weather, my friends!

Someone more knowledgeable on the subject than I can chime in here, but I don't think the synthetic winch lines are brand dependent, are they? Can't you use any synthetic winch line? That is a solid winch, I would also just get the synth line, however you have to do it, and rock that winch.

Piece of junk. After getting bushwhacker fenders and artic inter splach shields. Had a shop install. Had to cut fender and splash plates to fit snorkel. Put on a cold air intake when bought the jeep. Shop called and ask for a part off the stock intake. Seems that k&n snorkel uses the stock intake for intake air filter. Putting a 2 x 4 hole in snorkel system. By passing the intake from above fender. This is like putting a screen door on a submarine, looks good in the sunshine but when it gets wet only keep the fish out. WTF. Manual says to use foam plug when in wet conditions. Live in Washington state and it rains 7 to 9 months a year. Plan to use in the mountains like in water or wet areas. Now wasted money on intake that is a waste but splach plates are ruin. And shop money is down the drain. To remove snorkel and now have to find a replacement.
All this to not cut hole in the hood. No where in details does K&N say anything about using stock intake tube. And I spend 200 bucks above other intakes because it was looking like a well design system. At least AEV web site at bottom of page in red letters says can not be used with after market fenders.
I have the Rugged Ridge snorkel on my Jeep, install was cake, I did it in the driveway and anyone can do it, should work with any fenders. I am very happy with it. If you follow the instructions and seal it up good with RTV, I am confident in it's ability to keep water out of the engine. Everything fits nice and tight and right where it goes. Hope that helps you out. It does use part of the stock air box, but replaces half of it.

Yes, you can use any synthetic line for any winch. Only difference is the length of winch line that can be spooled. I would match what the winch came with. IE: 100 ft steel cable that came with the winch, match with 100 ft synthetic winch line. You will be good to go and there are many options out there for synthetic lines.
