    I wouldn't fret any radical changes. There isn't a vehicle in the world where there is such a huge aftermarket industry that supports individual customization. So much so that no two well-owned JKs...

    Awesome idea! I need to do this. Looks great. I don't think I'd do the rear window, but sides are a must. Maybe modify as a zip pouch/bags for lightweight item storage like rain poncho or towels....

    Mine kept falling down so I had to glue them. Otherwise, not too bad. Several other manufacturers are making them nowadays, and many people have made their own. I used them on two JKs but not sure I...

    Pardon my ignorance (I come from the JK world), but is that Nth degree stuff still made/supported? My son recently acquired a TJ and he said AEV wasn't making those lifts anymore.

    The stock JK lights are downright dangerous on country roads and useless off-road. Complete garbage. I've had JWSpeakers for 3 years and can say they are fantastic. Last year, I added their fogs and...

    A lift with progressive springs and adjustable shocks is the ticket. I weigh more than you out of the box and ride is great whether I'm fully loaded for camping or empty going to work. I'm running...

    Do you have or are planning a lift or flip? Length may matter.
    I've got OME coil overs on mine, and 1.5" shackle lift to accommodate 35" tires to match Jeep. Came off an old CJ and still work...

    Seems a little large and bulky to bring on a trip. I guess it is best for home use. For keeping the log together, I use a bungee instead of a tire. Again, a lot easier to pack an assortment vs....

    On my off road trailer, I mounted my solar panel to a pivoting TV arm/mount. It lies flat in transit, but can be pivoted in any direction to catch maximum sunlight while camping. When on rough...

    I've been running King adjustables for awhile now. Replaced Bilsteins in AEV lift. They've held up well. Best riding shock I have ever experienced. The adjustability is awesome, I use it a lot for...

    Here's a comparison (both 2 years old). These are extras rotated from the spare, not the worst ones (they are still mounted). Your mileage may vary, apparently:

    -1 the black ones rust really quickly (poor finish). Their chrome lugs hold up better.

    ??? MSRP on the 4wd double cab is 27,685. A JKU sport starts at $26,195. Maybe you are referring to the costs and disease you get after you buy it ; )

    Yes, the Kings work great, mostly for the adjustability. I would recommend adjustables to anyone, and there are several choices out there now (Rancho, Fox, etc.). No fixed shock can serve all the...

    Kept hearing a clucking sound in the rear, turned out a sway bar end link had snapped due to contact with the track bar mount. Also had issues with sway bar hitting shock reservoirs. Moving sway...

    Sounds like the OP wants a rack for his trailer, not JK? Maybe post on the off-road trailer section as there is great experience there. The vinyl top prevents welding anything. Maybe some Yakima...

    Dan- The larger contact area is far better at spreading out the frictional force and the heat generated. Move small pads way out and you'll be replacing them more often. Toyota engineers made this...
