Stopped by AEV today and picked up a IPF 8161 backup light. I only plan on using the harness and 3-way switch to hook up to my 2 rigid dually d2's so I can make them come on/off with the reverse as well as manually and to free up a spot on my spod for future use.

Sorry guys, I didn't end up taking any pics at rocks and valleys off road park from Saturday. But, I think my wife did with her iPhone. If they look any good, I'll get them from her and post them up.
Well, after washing the jeep I was able to assess the damage from r&v.
-lock pick stopped working the night before. Just my luck. So, no backup camera. Will troubleshoot when I can.
-wife tore rugged ridge passenger side grab handle off roll bar while on a nice obstacle. Needs to be replaced. Lol, she's strong!
-transfer case skid is caved completely in and pressed up against the t-case. Need to replace.
-one bfg a/t 315/70r17 has a nice cut in the sidewall. Need to replace.
-rock rash to a different wheel. Not bent. Cosmetic. Still holds air. No repairs necessary.
-front left bump stop (white piece) popped out and is laying loose between spring. Hopefully it's not damaged and needs to just be reinstalled.
-grill was popped out on lower drivers side, near turn signal. Popped back in, looks ok.
-aev chmsl stopped working while on trail. Will check for a loose wire. Unless it just died, which I know happens sometimes.
-got stuck for a while in some deep water. Need to check and possibly change differential fluids in front & rear diffs.
-steering is pulling to the left but steering wheel is off center to the right, lol. Hopefully, just an alignment.
-intererior is still splattered with mud all over. Afternoon of cleaning will take care of that.
-some minor scuffs, not necessarily pin striping. I'll wax the jeep before the snow hits.
I think that's it, lol.

Removed the dirtydog4x4 mesh and netting, the half doors, and the soft top. And, reinstalled the full doors and hard top. Didn't want to but the weather is starting to change. Plus, my two year old little girls school (Montessori) started back up this week. Didn't want to be putting the top up/down, and upper half doors off/on daily.

Some pics (I'm overdue)
Removed the OEM exhaust.
So I could install the new Dynomax Drone-Free Exhaust.
Parts laid out on garage floor.
All done. But, still needs to be tweaked a little bit.
Received payment for the tire carrier. So, I removed it.
Thought that I could remove the spindle w/o removing the bumper, I was wrong.
Now, just waiting for the new owner to pick it up.
Looking a little naked (for now).
Since the AEV tire carrier is gone, I had to figure out a different spot for the Rigid Dually D2's Decided to try the BDF Tail Light mounts that I have had in the garage for quite some time now, on my OEM tail lights.
Mounted up w/ Mopar Tail Lights guards.

It's a crimestopper brand camera.
Ok... so, I removed the oem tail lights, oem 3rd brake light, mopar tail light guards, rigid industries dually d2's, and bdf rigid tail light brackets. I reinstalled the in pro car wear Bermuda black led tail lights and installed the matching 3rd brake light, along with a new set of rigid industries srm2's (diffused). I couldn't reinstall the Mopar tail light guards as the screws aren't long enough to get good bite into the ipcw tail lights. I'm glad to have my ipcw tail lights back in. I think they look cooler. And, I'm also glad to have finally installed the matching 3rd brake light. I'm hoping to find a way to get the teraflex 3rd brake light mount behind the wheel instead of in front of it. I have an idea but gotta see if I can make it happen. If i cant, i'll remove it and install the aev chmsl i picked up the other day. I swapped out the d2's for the srm2's because of the smaller, lower profile size to look match up better with the tail lights. Those things are so tiny, and bright as hell. I still have to remove the aev rear bumper pieces and replace them with the mw3 pieces and trim up my aev crush corners, paint them, along with the poison spider 50" brackets and reinstall them. I'm not gonna end up using the pump kit. I think I'm gonna eventually get some rotopax cans, gas as water. Here's some pics before bed...

Got a email from Lon @ HRE Wheels. My new TR45 wheels will be shipping out Wednesday. I can't wait. I already have a new set of OEM TPMS sensors at home, and the BFG KM2 37x12.50x20's are waiting for me at Discount Tire. I already picked up (from AEV) the 4.5" Bumpstop kit. I really hope the 37's clear the TNT Customs Rock Sliders without having to trim them. We'll see.
