A neighbor and I will be installing an AEV 2" spacer lift on my '21 Mojave tomorrow morning starting ~9AM in my garage. I may install the Clayton F&R adjustable track bars and new wheels & 37" tires too. My neighbor has only so much time so we'll see what gets done. I normally work alone but...
How well did the Rubi do on Jack Hammer?
In case you don't recall - here's a sample of the fun you'd have had.

I ran mostly SoCal/Hammers trails for ~35 years. Good times.

One thing I need to address is that the Motobilt fairlead mount has gussets that contact the low profile Evo outer assembly on both sides near the base.
A little cutting and some fresh paint does the trick. Wiring is...
Well, I finally had a little time to screw around in the garage today.
Motobilt Hammer bumper install was pretty strait forward.
Depending on how my day goes tomorrow, if I have some garage time, I'll install the winch.
I never get tired of seeing more of east county.
I *might* be in SoCal again from Jan 21 to 30
Pre-covid, I use to travel back to SoCal/San Diego about twice a month for work. I'd usually take a few days off while there to visit family, friends, and occasionally wheeling/riding shotgun.
The orange 3/4" (7/8" pin) D-ring shackles from Nilight arrived yesterday. Powder coating seems nice. They come with rubber washers for the pins and snap on/off isolators to help reduce clanking around. I need to add a few 7/8" washers between the rubber and clevis mount to help take up a bit...
