Swapped the full snorkel on. I liked the look of the low mount, but I get better fuel milage with the high mount just sucking in the cold air. And honestly.. it's grown on me a lot too.

The metalcloak gear is great. Everything fits well - tight, and when it's done up, nothing is moving. Navigated the instructions a bit on my own, but everything is buttoned up.

I've put the stinger on, just need to upload the pictures - really happy with how it looks and feels. Didn't realize the fairlead Metalcloak sends is different from the ones that come with the Warn winches so I'll have to order that one in.. currently the ultimate mall crawler with the steel cable still wrapped in plastic wrap. I haven't even put on the actual hook yet.

Don't judge me unless you buy me a Mall Rated emblem from JCR and send it my way... which I will gladly put on :)

A few more parts came back from powder coating, so hopefully I'll have another update mid week.

I got a call from Impact that my remaining few pieces were done, so I rushed over to pick them up before they closed - front bumper caps came off,

And the stinger went on. I used to hate the look of these things - but they obviously grew on me and they do serve a purpose. When you're going down a hill and looking straight at the ground, if your rear tires come up and off the ground the purpose is to stop your jeep from rolling.

This is her current stance -

One more small addition this week that I'll update on and I'll be done building her for a bit - really happy with where she sits as it stands. Built to be functional, but also to my taste.

Looks good. I'd say there's room for 40s under that thing. Haha
