What did you do to your Expo Jeep today?

Installed the Trailgater. Easy install. Super tight tolerances. Definitely not an easy one handed operation. Wish it was held by magnets like the one I saw from a guy in Canada, but you had to drill into the tailgate. Something I didn’t want to do. I’m not a permanent mod kind of guy. I want to be able to sell if not used or I just don’t want it anymore. The pull rings were pretty stiff so I added some silicone spray and that really helped. I also added some foam below them so they wouldn't rattle which they did a few times on the highway.

Also added the 67D Overlander pack with Maglite. Too expensive for what it is, but it will come in handle for sure while using the Trailgater. Getting anything out of the back. Or having portable light for anything.

New Odyssey batteries. They're both the same other then that the one on the left has additional terminals for my Snomaster fridge.

This was last weekend, but got it STUCK. This was a camping/wheeling trip and very good to test not only wet and muddy conditions but also near freezing temps at night. I miss my RTT, but concerned my JL will have clearance issues in some of the places I travel through. In the market for a VERY low profile RTT to go on top of my Rhino rack.

Installed 2-in AEV Spring Spacer Lift Kit, 1.5-in SpiderTrax Wheel Spacers, and 34-in (285/75-17) BFG KO2s.
The following picture is with lift and spacers. I forgot to get a stock height picture.
After all.
Looks great. I had this lift on my Recon with 285's. Recently switched to 2" MOPAR coils and 2.1 Falcons. Much stiffer setup and not sure I'm super happy. It handles way better and less bouncey, but not quite as compliant on road. I bet if I added a winch it would be a little softer. I know this won't be a forever setup. I see a little more lift and 35's or even 37's in my future. I might even take a swing at coilovers down the road.

I installed my ARB twin compressor under the passenger seat of my JKUR. Also secured my Domitec fridge slide for my ARB fridge (about $150 cheaper). This weekends plan is once again rebuilding my rear upper control arm joints. I will never buy another Rock Krawler product after dealing with there joints and poor customer service.
