Speakers were supposed to "drop in". Apparently they do if you have a sound bar instead of sound pods.



Took a little work but got them to "press" in.

Fun time at the blessing. Drove the 150 miles to and from. Wife and her friend got all the seat time in Chadville. Both spent time accidently on the throttle instead of the brake going for some bouncy airtime. But the Jeep took all they had to give it. And I drove it 80 mph home without concern.

Giving the wife some direction.

My maf was flagging more codes though, just was a bit underpowered and my fuel mileage driving there and back was terrible. But it was still better then a 4.0 or 3.8 . But having it relocated and the air filter moved my iat was a lot cooler then before.

Wife's friend driving. She didn't have any experience in any kind of jeep prior to running the course. But she did very well. Except right after this pic she missed the brake and hit the throttle and went for a bit if a violent ride.

Sorry I never answered your question about what my iat runs at. It has been a while since I monitored it. If I remember correctly, it ran up to 100 degrees above ambient before the shroud and up to 60 after.

Where did you move yours to? I hope to improve mine this year...

It's low behind right Headlight. Ambient temp was 50 degrees Saturday. I never seen hotter the 85-90 both crawling around or on the highway at 80.

I was seeing 130-140+ prior

Mounting it low probably helps. I wanted to be up hi to stay away from water. Not sure if that is the right way to do it or not?

I'm not overly concerned with water. My inner fender protects it pretty well from splash. Unless I'm Headlight deep it should fair well.

Ordered the poison spyder TJ BFH II Rear Bumper.

My current bumper has served me well, but I want something tighter to the tub. I keep hitting it on vertical climbs and ledges etc. The Dring tabs catch alot. This weekend I tweaked it a little. Not sure if the bumper or the mounts, or the frame. I'll see how bad it is but I'll probably straighten it and list it for sale with the tire carrier.

Hopefully you have better luck with the fitment than I did. Tight didn't even describe it fully..

Here is how far it was off at the bottom.



I made the mistake of not test fitting before it hit powder. I ground down the inside of the bumper, the frame, and still ended up having to beat it on with a 5 pound sledge.

Looked pimp though..
