This weekend, I installed 1" wheel spacers and a set of JK Moab wheels, did an oil change, noticed that my oil filter bypass had broken and thankfully Autozone had one in stock.

How was the install of the tow hooks
Super easy. I took the whole bumper off to do the grille swap and take out headlight, can just remove lower portion.. but the whole thing isn't hard. The hardest part of the whole install was keeping everything ligned up.. the Off-road animal tow hooks are 4 separate parts. Probably took 30 minutes total.

Swapped out the stock Kevlars for a set of 255/70/18 Cooper AT3 4S tires. Just got them on yesterday and haven't driven on them more then 40 or so miles so far but I like them so far. Seem smoother and feel like less rolling resistance than the Kevlars.

Did an engine bay detailing. I plan on doing this once every year, although it was several weeks past its first year anniversary due date. A little Simple Green, a garden hose, a leaf blower, some Gunk engine detail spray, a towel and about an hour of effort. It wasn't very dirty in the first place and I plan on keeping it that way throughout the years. 2018 HA.

Wife wanted black 20's and she finally got them. OEM Trackhawk 20x10 with 295/45R20 Pirelli Scorpion Verde's

Snug fit with the knuckle, but doesn't look like it'll catch.

Good luck, I can't say it won't happen, but I have my doubts that the oil won't darken from contamination, there is cylinder blow-by and other effects that contaminate the oil in internal combustion engines.... EGR and oil migrating through the PCV system, while you can argue adds to the blow-by, its marginal at best....

Did you do something to eliminate the CEL from blocking the EGR? or do you just live with the CEL? You must not have emission inspections in your state.

This totally depends on the engine, some engines you can block the EGR and suffer a single ill side-effects, other engines you can suffer bad side-effects, drops in mileage and detonation, etc.... ...a proper working EGR has no ill effects on the engine, other than its another part that can break and require repair, some folks do get all particular about there being a little soot in the intake manifold that doesn't hurt anything....
