Amazon suckered me in with a limited edition less than 10 left blah blah Factor 55 winch nipple. Now I need a chrome roller fairlead to keep it from clashing with the Warn logo. Should’ve put more thought into that...

How do you like that new style Warn cover? My old Warn neoprene looks gawd awful and needs replaced.

Took my TJ for a drive to the summit of Mt Spokane. 5883 ft. Ok, so it's paved to the top but it's still a nice drive.

Highest spot on the mountain.

Looking at Spirit Lake in Idaho. Used to be alot of good wheeling in that valley until Inland Paper closed it down.

Now you can access it with a yearly $50 permit and you can only drive on maintained roads.

That certainly didn't load right.

Installed a pair of paracord door pulls on Ripley. Went with red/blk cord pulls to match my roll bar grabs and steering wheel cover. Also replaced a bunch of the broken plastic door clips. Planning on some red accents on the upgraded seats.

I really like it. I wasn't a big fan of the neoprene style because (in my mind) it seemed to do a better job keeping moisture in than out. This keeps the winch dry, and the back side is mesh so it breathes well. Sturdy material too, it wipes clean. I would buy it again for sure.

Put the hood scoop onto my Rubicon.
This may sound silly but I liked the earlier TJs having the 3 grill slots going across opposed to my 05 having 1.

I like that! I can't say I've seen a snorkel/intake kit like that before- I haven't really looked at those too much though because I thought they all were a little too much. Honestly, if I think there's a chance I'm going to need to suck air from above my windshield, I'm not going to attempt it. This is cool though.

Unless you relocate your filter/ intake all that scoop does is cover the HVAC air intake in the cowl.

So that hitch is part of the braking system? Never seen that before. Interesting
Yep; discovered it in another thread here on the forum. It's basically a surge or inertial brake. After researching, I really liked the mechanical aspect vs the electronic varieties that are proportional brakes and tie into the Jeep's electrical system. Less opportunity for failure and, while still not cheap, much more cost friendly.

We have used the Ready Brake system for a number of years now. I think you need to adjust the cable a little. You are only to have approx. 2" of slack in the cable when attached. The way you have it when you make a turn to cable will/may bind at the ball hitch causing it the brake the cable. You may also need to add a brace to support/raise the cable above the ball hitch to keep the cable from catching on it when you make a turn.

Pulled over on the side of the freeway to put the top back together. LOL I was going down the freeway and looked back and my rear corner of my top was flapping in the breeze! I was running with the Bestop sunroof back and no windows. Got pulled over to put the corner back in and noticed it pulled down way to easy. I looked to see if the mid section was pinned in, and noticed the pin was completely gone. I had to close the sunroof to continue on my way.

I just got done emailing Bestop to see if they can send me a new pin, actually 2 I want a spare. Going to suck not being able to use the sunroof. LOL

Driver side pin now missing in action. LOL

Pin I'm talking about. (passenger side).

I was going to put a bolt in it for now, but I found out that I can't. The hole doesn't go all the way through. I hope Bestop will take care of this and fairly fast. I will have to put the top down all the way to go topless and I really like just running the sunroof. :D
