    I did not add anything that wasnít already there, I forget what type of material to add to increase the performance, I will have to check out what I need and add it. Even without the sound quality was vastly improved.

    Mild JK Build

    I also replaced my factory tail lights with some LEDs that I got for free from a friend who said and I quote ďtheyíre too beat up for meĒ. I installed a new set of the same lights on his JK and he was going to throw away these...they work perfectly and arenít broken, the very tops of the lights have scratches that you canít see now because of the corner armor.

    I was looking over your build and noticed you have added a hood vent. Did you install it yourself? If so what brand is it. I havenít found any where the bolts arenít visible like that one. How big of holes did you cut?

    Itís a Daystar Hood Cowel, I installed it myself, also painted it myself. The bolts are all hidden also you cut a fairly small hole in the front and it vents the heat out the back. I like it way better than Poison Spyder hood vents. They claim it works better at low speed than the Poison Spyder one as well. They arenít cheap and they have to be painted or vinyl wrapped, but I do like it a lot and I donít see to many other people running them.

    They do, I searched them out yesterday for kicks, a few sites still list them but theyíre up to $316. I believe I paid around $260 when I got mine a couple of years ago.

    Just clicked on the links, 4wd hardware (listed for $315.99) is out of stock. Just Differentials has them looks like in stock for $340.20. And a couple of sites have the carbon fiber version in stock for $436-$484 (ouch).

    Even at $350 itís half the price of a hood and requires way less paint. I will look at just differentials and see if I can order one. I have a Willyís so I will probably keep it black to go with the factory look.

    Couple of poser shots from Southington 2 weekends ago. Still trying to figure the trail system out up there. The upgrades that I made since my previous trip August of 2020 really paid off as I was able to take a harder (not the hardest, need a locker for that) line up one of my favorite hill climbs. Also not messing with trying to re-connect a muddy sway bar was very nice.

    Finally added my 3/4Ē coil spring spacers I picked up after doing the corner armor/flares. It was setting a bit tail low so I ordered the spacers back in MarchÖ

    I also cleaned up and painted my front fenders body color. Iíve been wanting to do this for quite awhile. Both projects actually.

    What type of rust proofing are you going to use? The paint job looks awesome.
