    2020 JLUR Mods Begin

    Away from home for work and my wife said Brown Santa came by with a lot of HEAVY packages. I said, “drag them inside!” They’re her birthday presents as it’s in a couple of weeks. And somehow our Rubicon has become “her jeep.”

    Phase 1 of the mods start...NOW.

    Poison Spyder Crawler front and rear bumpers, front skid, Smittybuilt winch, and Rugged Ridge tube doors.

    Home from hitch late last night. Some good weather today for the installs. Let’s go!

    Got the front bumper and winch installed. Forgot the fairlead bracket. Had to order it today. Means I have to removed the winch and one of the bolts is very difficult to reach. The rear is gong to required some drilling for the parking sensors. Also have to moved the license plate to inside the spare tire.

    Lift and tires next upgrade.

    Todayís task: Remove and replace rear bumper. Since I have the tow package and park sensors, this is a lot more involved. The old plastic bumper had to be completely disassembled to removed the sensors and wiring harness. The tow hitch and wiring connector also removed.

    I have some new Mopar rear sensor mounts Coming. Iíll have to drill the bumper for them. Researching on where to put the outside ones, as the bumper is angled there.

    The Poison Spyder bumper comes with a hitch receiver, so the factory one can be discarded. Iíll drill the bottom of the bumper for the connector for now. Iíd much rather it be out of the way.

    Great looking JLUR. BTW I love the cool Shorthair in the rear. I had on that color we called Dusty. She loved to leap off the shore into the water at the lake. She never got tired. Our first one I saw swim for over 2 hours without touching land chasing ducks.We had 3 German Shorthair dogs and loved them all. They are the best with kids.

    I can't wait to see the rest of your build.
