I had my third new windshield installed by the factory and the dealer. Original pitted upon delivery, new one installed, with big scratch and lastly the third time was the charm. I only have 2200 miles, in 9 months of ownership, plus I washed off the salt bath the roads give it and gave it a Christmas Detailing.

Finally got around to grinding the flanges on the rear fender flares from Black Mountain and installed them this weekend. Kind of a PITA, but just glad that I was able to finally replace the old faded plastic fenders. Also cleaned up rust spot on rear bumper and sprayed with Rustoleum textured black finish to match the powder coat. Now I just need to get those rims replaced!

You can always bedline your rims if you like the style. I did that to mine years back and they hold up great off-road and super easy to touch up with rock rash. Rims used to be black chrome until I got into rock crawling.

Sanded them down with a wire wheel on a drill. 2 coats of self etching primer and then 3 coats of bedliner. Didn't even have to unmount the tires from the rims. Used a deck of cards between the rim and tire and sprayed the rims on the grass outside my garage. Took 1 weekend to do all and put back on the jeep. Definitely saved some coin for other upgrades.

Thanks for the recommendation. I've considered that as well, but I don't really like the backspacing or style of the wheels. They came with the Jeep and I've been looking to upgrade them to 17x8.5s with a little more backspacing than these wheels. But might be something I need to consider if I'm able to save the cash.

Installed tire beads yesterday because the stacks of weights kept falling off my rims and causing a wobble from not being balanced. Had a kit to do it through the valve stem, but wow what a PITA. Should have just pulled tube bead and dripped in the weights.....

Spring swap. Went from 2.5" 2 door Metalcloak to 2.5" 4 door RK. 1" gain all around which is a shade over where I was before adding bumpers/armor/winch. (Rear spring photo for comparison)

I also added a MC front trac bar which was a pain, there is no way to tighten the jam nut when installed in place in the Currie housing. I ended up setting length, putting it in the high steer bolt location to tighten then repositioning..
