Huge update: Picked up the jeep monday night from Jerry Ulm Jeep in Tampa. Top went down before i left and still hasn't gone back up since. All the poison spyder stuff showed up wednesday and the rock krawler 2.5" flex system.






Test fitted everything and then took it all back off to go to powdercoating.






Lift kit was installed friday by Land O' Lakes 4x4. Great guys and cheap pricing.







Love it so far and cant wait for everything to come back from powdercoating.

So unfortunately after putting the rear bumper on and rock sliders i decided that the powder was too glossy

so i took them off AGAIN and took everything back to powder again this morning. im going to be able to work for poison spyder after this thing is done.

looking at a week turnaround so the waiting begins again...

Looks good! I'm thinking about the PSC brawler lite front bumper, you said it was a PITA.....what was the problem?

Thanks

Um it wasnt a total PITA but getting to a few of the last nuts was hard. had to have a girl with little hands get them. I cant say enough though how quality PSC stuff really is and the staff there has great customer service. If I was going to do it again I would pick PSC again with no hesitation.

in other words, go for it! you wont regret it

I missed your latest update to this thread. Nice stuff man!

I like the matte black much better also. You should think about relocating your license plate, I think it'd show off that sexy PSC rear bumper and even things out back there. Just a thought. And hit that shiny muffler with some black paint or replace it with a high tuck system.

Jeep's looking awesome.
