    So the bumper didn't come with any way of holding the sensors in the bumper so I pealed the factory holders off the factory bumper and mounted them to the Genright bumper.

    But as you can see they got smashed by the cross member...so I drilled holes in the frame to make room. The outside ones cleared so no need to do anything to them.

    The Artec plate holder I ordered had a few issues too. first I never thought about me running a spacer/adapter on the EVO tire carrier which flips the bolt pattern upside down...so the bracket will not fit the wider bolt pattern that now is on top. I made a bracket to fit the wider mount and welded it to their mounting part.

    The one I made...it clears the camera lens, can not see it in the camera at all.

    I used the factory wires to the rear license plate to use on the new plate mount....I ran them from the bumper harness through the tub at the jack storage area, there is a drain plug and I just ran the wire through it....then along the weather stripping through the wire protector into the tail gate then out to the tire.

    The plate holder is supplied with screws that thread in the plate holder that has welded nuts on the backside to hold the plate...standard thread. The LEDs are metric ? so I had to drill out the threads to install the LEDs.

    Done

    UPDATE....I have 37" Nitto's on my JL and I've had a shake / vibration since I installed them, I wasn't driving it much at all because I planned on going back to the Tire Shop in Lancaster.

    They wanted to use tire balance beads.... I said ok but the whole time I was thinking this is not a good idea, I ran this stuff before when I was driving on square 44 TSL Swampers... but I did it anyway .

    Well I went back and told them I want to take out the beads and use stick on weights...So on the tire balance machine four tires took 7.5 ounces on the inside and 7.5 on the outside. all four real close to this amount.

    One was 15oz inside and out ! You could see the tire going up and down....so they rotated it 180...no change. after closer inspection half the bead would not seat all the way down like the others. dismounted re-lubed and over inflated then lots of standing around....They said they would order a new tire.

    Well I got a call from them and Nitto wanted the tire so they could do a adjustment on it...I took that as a shave job to make it round. Tony at the Tire store said he sold me a new tire and I'm getting a new tire...cool. The new tire came in and the same fucking thing ! He ordered another and that one was ok.

    So these Ridge Grapplers are a one and done set...

    I signed up for the VIP Experience with Genright...Jordon Pellegrino was racing his new full suspension buggy and I got to spend the whole day with the race team chasing the car around the Ridgecrest desert.
    Had a blast and would recommend it to everyone. Here is a few pic's.....Also I'm going V8 I could not come close to keeping up with Terramotto....Decided to take the gloves off with my Jeep and get crazy. lol

    I swapped bumpers too.....The ARB did not fit well with the CTI winch I have.....I went to the LoD destroyer.

    I also cut off the fangs from the frame, much nicer clean look.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
