New update this week. I decided to sell my full width warn elite series bumper to forum member JPFWO since I changed my flares to the Bushwacker flat flares. Just didn't have the same look as before. So I've taken the OEM bumper and cut the ends off to fabricate my own stubby for now until I decide on which stinger bumper to go with. I also took some OEM spray paint and painted the plastic ends as well as the flat flares and door handles. Looks very nice now and has a shiny look to them. Pics will follow later today.
Well I got the lights back on, had to take them off to replace the cracked windshield. Decided to sand the brackets down and then spray them with rustoleum gloss black. Much better looking, also purchased a set of CREE LED Fogs to get rid of the yellow look.
Here's a photo showing the stock with CREE LED
Had to take grill off but figured I'd snap a photo just for comparison.
Got the jeep Black Boxed yesterday. Very happy with the turn out, removed a lot of my trail marks and the white cloud of tree branches from my UP trip.
Also moved the third brake light behind the wheel I'll take a night shot later. Weekend project is getting the under carriage ready for winter, license plate relocation as well as getting my tailgate table installed.
Got the TeraFlex HD tire carrier accessory mount today and installed. Contacted Josh from Rebel Off-road. They had a bunch sitting in the warehouse. So glad I decided to call been waiting for 3 months and everyone has been on Back order but not my friends at Rebel awesome customer service too.
Next project to paint it black.
Also painted the exhaust and ACE rock rails and fenders. Been doing so much lately I've lost track of what I have and haven't updated. Sorry everyone
Also got my paracord handles from Josh and Andrew at Survival Accessories really good quality and fast turn around. All the handles are custom made to your liking. Mention this build thread and they will give you a discount.
I had them make my front handles and rear handles to bolt into the role cage as well as had the center one go into my bolts to the speaker bar. And then the rear head rest ones. They have a kinds of colors and styles. You can email them at Drew0809@yahoo.com for prices or even other products. I know they make TJ door handles and my next order is for the door strap extended.
they are from Survival Accessories, paracord grab handles. they will custom make any color. if you email Josh or Andrew in the email above let them know you heard about them from this build. they have many different styles. I just had mine done. They said first time someone has asked for the front grab handles the way i wanted them same with the center grab handle for the rear center passenger. they will do any color preference. They are making me one for my key chain.
Well it's been some time since my last update. Moved to Chicagoland in September and it's been a little chilly lol I did get a 10" LED light for my hood as well as relocated the license plate although I may have included that update. Sitting in my garage now waiting for warm weather is my Rubi Rails as well as my AEV snorkel. By spring I'm going to get an AEV hood and going to be changing out the rim tire combo.
What are the thoughts on the wild boar grill? Thinking of getting that mod as well.
Well thanks to Josh over at discount I got some Level 8 ZX wheels ordered. 17x9 with 4.5" BS and -12 offset they look really nice and they are wrapped in 35x12.5 Goodyear MTR Kevlars much quieter than the KM2's I had
well I am looking at getting a Fox 2.0 SS for the Jeep. (Still nameless will take suggestions) Also have on order the Wild Boar grill along with AEV hood, am currently pending ACE Engineering sponsorship. Either way im thinking of going with there front and rear bumper as well as narrow fender flares. My brother will be getting my Bushwacker flares. Helping him out. Also have some new LED's on order. Its going to be a Christmas Spring for me. Also thinking in eventually building up my Dana 30 and getting a new Drive Shaft looking to get ideas. updates will be coming shortly along with install.
the Jeep will be getting an entire transformation shortly. I have purchased a Teraflex 4" lift with Rock Krawler lower control arms as well as Fox Steering Stabilizer ACE ambasodor ship was approved and will be doing the Rear bumper tire carrier, Narrow Fender Flares, Rock Sliders, Stubby front bumper with 10" and fogs oh an the rear bumber will have two 6" lights. getting an Angry eyes look grill, Traildash from superchips and a reverse camera. Also have Paracord accessories building me a set of cords for my rear and front doors so that the rears open more and just have the fronts match. Also picked up a 50" from Purefire LED's. I think that's it for now. Ill update as I go along.
Why are you now selling the kevlars? Hard to balance or are 37s on the list?
You guessed it. 37's I've got the gear upgrade and have the driveshaft I'm looking to get 37's. I'll update with photos but I have a TeraFlex 4" Lift with Rock Krawler lower control arms and Tom Woods 1310 front driveshaft so 37's just seem like a must. Obviously rims and tires are brand new. I want to say 2-3 months old. Only 7k miles on them.
