    Love the Bandaid, where did you get that one?
    When I Put my sill protectors on I made them about the width of the doors as mentioned above your leg rubs on them everytime you get in or out, which is an issue for those shorter people or with your lift probably everyone, looking at the photo's would a wider slide made any difference? and not sure if you could build a " bolt on" extension to be fitted before you go out playing and removed for being your daily driver?

    A wider one may have helped, but who knows.... Im just going to get some kickers to weld on, being that this only sees the road a couple times a month, and gets stored for the winter, im not too worried about hitting my legs on it.

    Not much new here. Took it out a few times with no more damage. Trying to prepare myself for storing it for the impending winter. Mom picked up a new JLU Rubicon yesterday, so ill probably get some small goodies for that, since as soon as shes sick of it, it will be mine lol!

    That's a pretty nice looking JLUR.... If I had the money.. I might would look into getting one.. Well I'd probably still look at a JKUR... But still pretty sweet looking ride...

    We ventured up to the MN/Canada border over the weekend with Moms new JLU Rubicon. It snowed a good 6" on Friday night into Saturday, and I was able to take the jeep out for some adventuring. I can say, man that thing does great in the deep stuff. Sure is more cushy than my Xj lol.

    I only lost my drone in the trees once, but my nephew was able to retreive it. After that, I stuck to still photos lol.
