    I ordered my 2013 JKUR From a dealer, and after about 6 weeks, I got the call that it arrived:

    I installed some Rock lights, Quadratec LED Headlights, and am running Baja Designs Squadron Pros, Squadron Sports, and an Onx6 light bar (Note.....pic doesn't show the BD LIghts)

    Found a company called "Surprise Straps", and they hand make Para cord Grab handles, so I picked a set up:

    I wasted my OEM Tires on a trail run, so decided to try the new (at the time) BFG ATKo2's (Hint...not worth the money)

    Not being a fan of the switch panels on the market, I decided to mount my own switches, when I swapped all my lights to Baja Designs:

    Got tired of the hood flutter, and wanted a locking hood, so I added the Rugged Ridge Hood locks:

    Thanks! I always preferred Co2 over an Electrically driven compressor for a vehicle, as its quiet, and doesn't sap too much from the electrical system, while giving great flow. Sierra Expeditions out here fills a 10# tank for about 12 bucks. Hard to beat. As for the Hilift, I haven't don't anything. They destroyed my bumper, and hinge ripping it off, so I had to blow my money on replacing those. I didn't have any cash left to replace the jack or mount. Thing is.....I had a pretty good lock on it. They didn't bother tring to cut the lock, but just butchered everything else.

    After my jack was stolen, I had to replace my bumper, and hinge so I upgraded to a Tactic hinge, and a steel bumper from a 10A JK:

    I replaced the Rubicon Sliders for the Enhanced Sliders, so I could get a little more side protection. It was an even swap I found on Facebook:
