What did you do to your Expo Jeep today?

Just installed my Brawler rear tailgate LED light. Easy install and great light output. If your on the fence jump.

I have one I'll be installed later this winter.

Did you wire it hot or to the dome lights. I was thinking of wiring mine hot so I can turn it on at will while camping.

I did hot wire it to the dome light however; it comes on a quick disconnect and am able to use the supplied 12v plug in the back of the jeep as well. I wired in a second 12v outlet in the back for my ARB fridge.

The last two days: cut off Evo rock sliders so I can install poison spyder rocker body panels. Drilled 42 holes for the nutserts/ mounting bolts. Had a few spin/not line up that great. Cut the bolt heads off and glued them in place. Then beefed up the sliders by sleeving them with 1.5”x .25” wall DOM tube going the length of the mounting tubes. Not my welds, beautiful nonetheless. Extended the sliders about a 1/2” for more of a step. And it snowed last night.

I lived in Jacksonville for 3 years. actually my wife lived there for 3 years, I was deployed for almost half that. We had snow flurries one time and they called school. We actually don't get much in OK any more, but I grew up in the black hills of SD, so I've seen my fair share.

FWIW, I have some bolt on/weld on VKS sliders. I plan to add the PS rocker armor at some point so mine are just going to be bolted till I get that done. Way too much work to weld twice... :)

Christmas flock, he really wants to win the best decorated Jeep prize

Haha it was for a parade, I had to cut the other garland off the sliders before paint and welding obviously. I might take it off the bumper too. It’s starting to fall apart from highway speeds

Report back your thoughts on the Deepsleep mattress.

Will do! Initial thoughts are very positive. Quick to inflate/deflate, easy to store in a high quality bag, power cord on the pump is long enough to reach the cigarette lighter outlet, and it's quite comfortable. It can be a bit awkward to get up into the Jeep once it's inflated, but really no more difficult than getting up to the roof rack. Hopefully we'll get it out for a field test soon!
