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.

Thank you! I had a Rock Brawler on my last Jeep, and just didn't like how far it stuck out. This one had 1700 miles on it when I cut the frame at both ends for the BFH 2 bumpers.

Yeah, the Rockbrawler looked a bit overwhelming on my 2 door. The rear I don't mind so much, but I've considered going with the BFH back there also. My dream is to one day be able to stretch and comp cut the Jeep and swap the axles, but that's going to be a while.

I loaded it up with some extra weight, they might get mounted soon if I can find the time. Hopefully I'll be posting a stellar review on them after some miles.

Looks like the Baja Claw. I have the Baja MTZ and I'm on my second set. I got close to 60k our of the first set, and moved up to 37's. I doubt I'll ever buy a different tire.

I've had the claws in the past and even a set of MTZ's. The claws were awesome. But, the price point and life on them for what I'm doing just wasn't something I could stomach. The MTZ's are also a great tire, but again, they're not hot for a daily. You can feel the vertical bump of every.single.lug. from about 5mph on. I'm hoping that these will last 40-50k miles and hold up well to the clay, but I'll keep the threads updated. I got them mounted last night.

I got a DV8 hard top. No leaks but man does it make a lot of noise. I probably need to make some adjustments. It will get a good leak test as tropical storm/ hurricane Barry passes

Finally changed the TIPM. It's nice to not have a mess of warning lights glaring and blinking at me. Also the gas gauge is back and my lockers work again. I also stripped and powdercoated the dual battery tray, and pulled all the disintegrating plastic wire loom off and replaced it with heat resistant fiberglass stuff. I rerouted most of the wiring while it was open to better fit the two battery layout. I fixed a 2" melted and lightly corroded section of winch ground wire that was very close to the cat so that's one less fire hazard.
