Meet #13

On your 2013 what did you have to do with the exhaust where the driveshaft touches at droop?
Turns out I had to uninstall TapTalk before my email would authenticate for me to be able to use the new format.

Anyway. I have done nothing with the exhaust/driveshaft. On my last JK it rubbed the rubber boot at full droop but never really caused an issue. With this Jeep I plan to upgrade the driveshafts anyway.
I think my brake lines were breaking down on the inside. I've had problems with two calipers sticking. The first I replaced but I'm holding off on the second to see if these new lines fix the problem. I flushed the system out really well during the install. The peddle deffinantly feels better with steal braided lines. And I really hated that metal bracket on the front lines.

Have any of you done anything different with your speed sensor lines?

Never mind the crappy shocks I have new ones on the list. I just got these with the lift to get me by for a little while. I want to go with something nice. I've been looking at Metal Cloak six packs or Falcon 3.3s. Both are very expensive but I really want a better ride.

I got the winch in the factory bumper. I used the Maximus3 center mount plate. No problems there. And did not have to relocate that little vacume pump. The Stock hook sucks, ill probably change that pretty soon.

I put in this cargo rack from Rustys Off-road. It mounts to factory threaded holes on the stock roll bar. I wanted to be able to load the rear without stacking stuff on top of each other. It sits high enough that the tonnneau cover will still go on.

These brackets were mounted to my roll bar when I bought the jeep. I later realized they were hi lift jack mounts. When I bought my Twraflex tire carrier I found a company offering a free Hi-lift jack with the purchase of the tire carrier. The price was the same for the tire mount as on any other site so I went for it. So I mounted the free jack to the free mounts. I added a piece of foam to keep the rattle down and it works well so far. I'm not a big fan of these jacks but for free I figured I'd give it a go. It gives me street cred at the mall. Safari top still fits with no problem.

I'm using the JCR truss this time. It fits really well and is so much easier to install verses the Artech I used on my last JK. These are going on front and rear.

I added a new top. I liked the Bimini Top and Tonneau I had but there was nothing to block out the weather/rain from coming in. I could have added a wind jammer back window but that still doesn't keep out the rain, especially on these 4 doors. So I got a Rampage Trail View Tonneau Top. It has the same look as before but with a rear cab enclosure. And the sunrider flip top is pretty cool. No more hard top for me.

looks pretty awsome man. how hard is it to take off the top part with that one? Can you leave the tonneau and windjammer on with the top part off?
