Adding:
Teraflext 1.5" Leveling Kit
Painting Exhaust Black
Torn on OEM Automatic Start (afraid of reviews that said it kept car from Starting normally)
Ace Rocksliders (I think...)
Matte Finish Window Visors
Warpig Rear Seat Recline Kit

Probably keeping the rest stock... For now at least!

Currently in Production but should move to "I" tomorrow. Ordered 8/19 D1 8/30.

Have you checked out the Barricade Rock Sliders?
Look similar but have three mounting points instead of two and also work with the Rubi Rock rails

Originally I had actually... Only reason I started thinking about the ACE Rocksliders were beacuase I saw a few people posting and they had a special for $370. Didnt realize the Ace didnt go well with Rubi Rails which I definately dont want to have to remove. Love the way they looks with the rock sliders. Sounds like you prefer Barricade to Ace?

Thanks for the input.

Thanks for the input.

ACE works great with the stock rubi sliders. I have run them on a two door and four door both with stock sliders. They have three mount points on a 4 door and two on a 2 door. Very solid on either.

Maybe I'm wrong but I read the Ace work with the Rubi Rails too, but I only prefer the Barricade because they are stronger with the three mounting points, especially since they will also double as a step

I was also considering Barricades full width bumper which looks great but I think I'm going with the ARB Deluxe full width Bull bar bumper

Sorry I didn't see your post before.
That makes sense then, the two mount points are for a 2 door.
Then they are in fact very similar to the Barricade

They will give you a printout of the order, or have them send it to you via email, and you should have a VON (Vehicle Order Number) on that printout

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Waiting for my 2017 75th Wrangler in Granite Crystal... I only added an automatic and tow bar to the build. It is supposed to be built the week of 9/26 so right now. I was told to check back with FCA customer service the week of 10/3.

It will be my first Jeep although I've probably wanted one since I saw those old comic book Jeep surplus ads and think I even mailed for a catalog (see photo). In high school I worked at a car wash and helped the Foreman repair an old Willys Jeep that was lying in the parking lot for years and got to drive it several times with a plow on it to clean the parking lot of snow. Owned third cousins like a 1974 Gremlin X, 1976 Volare Roadrunner and now a 2001 Chrysler Sebring convertible to mention a few.
