    Congrats on the new Jeep. I love the red. I typically don't care for the color matched hard top but it looks good on the red Jeep.


    It's not just a Jeep, it's an amusement park on wheels.

    So much awesomeness!! Unlike the JK before, I still think the JL's look really sharp bone stock and Rubicon's actually look like they've been built up a bit.

    Yeah we were looking for black or white but not at in stone and ended up really liking the red we saw. Definitely looking fwd to getting it lifted!

    Oh for sure. Between the 285s, fenders, and wider axles they really look pretty damn good stock. Certainly, better with lift and 37s though lol.

    Thinking I want to get a winch set up, being tires and suspension are staying put. I have the plastic front bumper, which doesn't seem like I can do much with. Want to keep a factoryish look for now, so thinking about trying to find a factory steel bumper if the price is right. Do those need extra winch plates or any other modifications? Will either go for a Warn Zeon 10 or a Warn VR10, assuming I do this soon

    Looks awesome, that red is always a great Jeep color, .

    Always was a black top/fender contrast guy but I think the JL's look awesome with the color matched set.

    Think you just have to get a winch plate for the steel bumper.

    Tell her, it's the weirdest thing.....you were driving and you got 5 flats, all at the same time. It's a safety issue.

    Just looked it up, that which plate is pretty pricey, so maybe if I came across a good deal on the steel bumper id go this route otherwise I may just wait it out

    I was in the same boat. I planned on buying a used steel bumper but adding a winch plate and bull bar would surely put the cost over a LOD Destroyer. I bought mine for less than $700 if I don't count the skid plate that I'll never install. Plus, super easy install and even with a Zeon 10S I only lost about 1/2".
