The programmers are VIN locked once used. You'll have to get one of your own.

Thanks.

ETA: Took the rear "bumper" off, pics tomorrow.

ETA ETA: Flexi-lined below the rear fenders and gate by flashlight. We'll see how that worked out in the morning.

Never got pics of the JK bare assed. To much exposed tire had to put the bumper back on, need to figure out some sort of mud flaps. Flexilinining below the body/tailgate line still looks better even with the bumper installed.

I have one computer with Windoze. The Flashcal is not Linux compatible. I have spent 3+ hours getting my Win partition up to speed to work with the flashcal. I think I finaly got the FC drivers installed but waiting on other Win updates. Ild love to kick Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer square in the nuts.

Thanks. One of the criteria of what Jeep I got was it could not be red, green, white, yellow, blue, or black so this definitely was a great choice.

Another note, I got my Flashcal last week, holy night and day difference and all I did was program for the bigger tires. This thing behaves better then when the stock tires where on it, of course that might also be due to getting the drivers seat and steering wheel location all dialed in. I may upgrade and download the Flashpaq.

Stubbied and Blackout.

Stubibied the bumper last night. No reason why other then I didnt like the full width bumper. It was kinda a pain in the ass since I couldnt find my saw-zall.



Flexy-Lined the grill black today. Looks horrible up close, runs all over the place. Im not a painter. Overall Im pleased though. Didnt realize the damn grill was plastic until last night and it already had chips in it.

Slowly, but surely... Low budget building is the way to figure out where to spend the real money.

Then and Now

Then



Now


Not a huge leap forward for most, but for me it is. No lift for 33's, just reprogram for proper speedometer. I had to kill a moose and cut the rear to fit the same 33's on my ZJ.

I'm really wanting the Rugged Ridge Exo-Top to be released.

As of now Im not looking to lift it, but I am looking at leveling it as the rake seems a tad extreme.

I did flexy Line the rims. Did it the lazy way, soap and water to clean, dry, spray. Probably wont hold up real well as there was a fair bit of rust on them.

No new mods realy but more of an oh sh!t.

Damn near hit a moose this morning coming home from work. Probably a yearling calf, a big cow was hit and killed in the same place last night.

If I where in my old ZJ I would not have seen the moose and been proper fawked, those headlights brought the suck.

I know some of yall call sth stock JK lights inadequit, for me they did the job quite well tonight because I saw it before I hit it.

My ZJ has not only hit and killed a moose without needing body repair, a moose has actually hit my Jeep doing only minor damage to the tail light, damn thing ran into my Jeep.

The stock JK head lights may suck, but they are a huge improvement over the 20 year old ZJ lights I spent the last ten years with.

What width adapters did you use? I'll be running 33x12.5's also once my anvil comes in.

1.25"s with 4.5" back spacing on the rims. When its time for new tires I will get the correct backspace to run without the spacers keeping a 15" rim.

Ah thats good to know, my rims are 3.65 backspacing and I'm running a 1.5" adapter. I was hoping for a wider stance so that extra inch a side should help.

I wouldnt mind the tires being tighter under the Jeep if it means no spacers. I would think 3.65 back spacing would work as long as the rim cleared the brakes.
