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.

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.

Well got a few mods completed. Got the license plate relocated and found a 3rd brake light and license plate LED



Attachment 422785



Attachment 422793

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.

You know I've never dropped the windshield but I can always do that. I have the lights on a quick release and can remove brackets in no time.

I may do that next spring or summer

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.

Also pending is my ACE ambassador sponsorship.

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.
