    IMO brand X inner fenders shouldn't be an issue with brand Y lift. Posting a proposed budget will help us spend your disposable leftovers :spending:

    3 inch zone lift. Fox 2.0 shocks. 35 inch nitto ridge grapplers. Bushwacker flat fenders. No name steel bumpers front and back for now.
    My 3.5 inch lift is Frankenstein'd together but most of it is a BDS lift with a few zone offroad parts and pieces. I think for a total price of the lift was around 600 bucks and it's been damn good to me. I havent had any problems with it. I also put some FOX 2.0 nitro shocks on it.

    Edit: the RC inner fenders look really cool and they will work with any lift. The only thing I dont like about them is the RC stamped out of them. I'd rather there be no holes and advertising on my inner fenders. But I've seen people weld a plate over the letters and paint them.

    Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve checked in. I put JKS quick disconnects a couple weeks ago, and today I put KC Gravity Pro6, Wide-40 beam with the yellow covers. Waiting for dark so I can check em out! Will post pics.

    @Old River Bill ...did you have to enlarge the holes in the sway bar to install the JKS QD?

    I had the JKS quick disconnects. But I liked the Rubicon Express cuz the a bit beefier. So I swapped them out. Not to hijack the thread. But they available. If anyone would like them. At a discounted price of coarse.

    @aggrex. Didn't have to enlarge sway bar holes to mount either link.,

    I just installed(2x) a Rubicon Express Oil Skid Plate. I installed it the first time and went to hand tighten the bolts connecting the bell housing to the transmission but they only went down half way. I couldn't tell if the plate was retricting their movement so I removed the plate and they went tightened the same distance. Does and one know the torque settings for these bolts or the 3 above the oil pan in front? Better yet, where I can find them?

    Just snug down the 3 oil pan bolts as you don't want to over-tighten them.

    I added an oil pan skid plate by myself a few days ago. Took it to my mechanic to put the transmission skid plate on today. No way I wanted to to attempt reinstalling crossmember successfully with my slowly building mechanical skills. The actual mounts are easy; 2 on the lower bell housing and 2 on the trans. Then they are connected with the plate. Rubicon Express.

    Haven't installed yet but purchased K&N lifetime cabin air filter from Amazon. Currently $54 plus $10 rebate so you get for $44.

    Does the K+N cabin air filter require maintenance like the engine air filter?

    Same spray to clean like the engine air filter, just a different spray specific to the cabin filter. From the reviews it does provide a big difference especially if you go off-roading a lot!

    Will also add I've been watching the price for about 6months or so and lowest it had been before was $59, so for it to go down $5 and also get a $10 rebate on top of it makes it a good deal.

    Just replaced my cabin filter. Was actually kinda surprised how dirty it was. And about 2 years old. Personally. I'd rather swap out a stock filter, cabin or air. Than have to clean and re-oil. Firm believer in stock filters. Just my preference.
