Do I spot some fj step assist attached to those sliders ...lookin good I love the crinkle coating on the bumpers it makes getting mud off fun though.

The steps and sliders are made for Toyota by N-Fab. Since I had two sets of steps, I went with N-Fab sliders for the Jeep. The accessory steps are multi fit in their line of sliders.
I was wondering the same thing. Pretty cool.

Looking good!

So, are there new rims coming with the monster tires, or is what we see, what we get?

And how long before you coat the whole thing with the same coating as the bumpers! Laughing

Rims and wheels are at DT waiting for the lift to be installed first. I received some bad news concerning the lift. I will know more tomorrow, but right now it looks like it might be delayed. Sad

The lift coils should be here by Thursday or Friday at the latest. So they should not prevent the Windrock trip, but maybe Uwharrie this weekdend.

The skids were dropped off a the powder coater today. This is the only issue now. Mad

I finished the installing the antenna, mount and ran the coax to the center console.  The 12V plug in the console was a nice feature.

I think it was around $25.  I had to modify it a good amount to get it to fit with my tire carrier.
