Like some people I'm going to say I'm not going to change a lot. And like most people that turns out to be a lie.

Pretty soon you're researching how much of a lift do you really need to fit 40s...

I picked it up just a couple days ago on 1/27. For some background I reserved 12/16/20 and blend date was 11/22/22. So over two months to get here. It was a LONG two months.

Fresh off the truck and in the prep shop at the dealer.

Had my first horsefly on Saturday. A horsefly is a Jeep that circles around you for a while and then has to park right next to you. :p


I have a very meager pile of parts to go on it. I really wanted to get it and then think about what I wanted to change. For example I really want to change out the wheels now and I hadn't really thought about it before I got it.

But for now the easy stuff.

Some rockslider steps are going to be soon. Although the youngest kid has figured out how to pull himself up using the handle. Plus the backup lights. Plus...

Glad she arrived!!!!

Only 2 months to arrive, that's not bad given Ford's methodology.

Our build dates are very close (11/30 for me) but at least yours moved.
They all move eventually. I kept reminding myself how fortunate I was to get a loaded rig in today's environment. Even if I had to wait for shipping it was better than never.

Is your Bronco finally on the move? Mine is at the dealership finally, but due to work and the wife’s schedule, can’t go grab it until Friday morning.

I know, I know…… Swoosh has already given me some much deserved shit about it. :ROFLMAO:

The gang is almost all stocked with rigs my friends.

The answers are coming….. :alien:

Don from Broflaps dropped by and delivered my flaps. He was very generous and offered to come back later and help me install them. I managed to get the fronts on (it's super easy) and then it started to rain. We'll see if I get to the backs today, but really what I was really worried about was the fronts. While the sliders will blocks some of the rocks they won't get all.

See if you can pick the violet/grey from the violet/green.

I ran the wires up and under this cover.

Success. Overall a pretty simple install. I can’t believe how east Ford made it.

More lights!

Which lights did you go with?

I have a pair of Baja Designs Squadron Sport Driving Combo on the way and will install myself.

About to place the order for Baja Fog array with 4x4TruckLED.com since they’re so active on here and pretty cool as well. Good prices to boot and the wiring harness they make for you makes things pretty straightforward.

In the two wires you point out, I can hardly see the difference in color as well. Will need to take pics and zoom in i guess. Think my pods will go to Aux 4. 2 and 3 think I’ll reserve for the fogs.

It’s just the Harbor Freight lights as I bought them several years ago and glad I didn’t over invest now. I’ll use them and if they break or burn out I’ll put something else in.

I used Switch 3 for these. I original tried to do the wiring in the dark and didn’t note the wire routing. But if you look you’ll see the violet/grey cones from the front of the rig.

My wife wants me to get a light bar. I haven’t told her how my those KC light bars are yet. 😜

Spent my points on the floor mats. The floor would have to get really dirty before I’ll need to pull them and wash out the floors.

I did wash the floors before putting the mats in.

I’ll post the rear mat. Not super happy the way they with the cup holders.

Think I’m going to grab the mats as well. My floor is a little muddy and I’ll rinse it out, but being able to pull out the mats is pretty good. Good use of your points.

I have my lights installed now, both pods and fog array. Took me 6 hours but it was a fun way to spend a Saturday. :)
