Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

Looks kick a**, install is disappointing
So- first I will say I LOVE the look of this on my Rubicon. I did NOT love the install. Came with TORX head screws (no tool supplied and the one inside the Jeep kit doesn't fit. You need a smaller head)
During install TWO TORX screws broke off mid-install. I had already gotten one cover on so I was committed to finishing the job. I ended up using OEM screws from my Jeep's initial light install and I'm requesting replacements from the company. For anyone wondering- I didn't just tighten them down too much. They broke 1/2 way in. I had to use a wrench to twist them out.
My second difficulty is that I've had my Rubi for 10 days- I was determined not to jack up the paint in any way or screw into the tub accidentally (the kit comes with self tapping screws so this is a real possibility if you're not careful). Sadly mission failed. On the last cover I ended up not aligning the cover with the prescribed hole and marring up the paint about 1/4 inch to the left of my predrilled hole. Going to get some touch up paint to fix to prevent rust (it's down to the metal) but inevitably it's behind a light cover so I could have done worse.
My advice: screw in the bottom screw part way, then look from above and adjust/line up as needed. You can't see the bottom screw hole on the jeep but looking down you can see the top and adjust left-right and/or up/down as needed. Then screw in everything tight. (MAKE SURE not to screw in the bottom all the way first)
Took me a solid 1:15 with removing the broken screws and taking care to line up. If you don't care about your tub- it'll take 15 minutes.
