I almost didn't paint them but I think it would look weird. I'm not a fan of the way it looks on other YJ's. I'm still not 100% sold on the black grille. It hides the bumper. But when I go with tube fenders (black) I may go back to a green grille. I don't want too much black

Jeep looks good with the black grill against the green paint. What kind of paint did you use on the grill though?

Thanks. Didn't want to do it permanent in case I didn't like it so I used Plasti dip. I'm gonna have to let it set in a little more before I decide to peel it off and permanently paint it

i had a new floor pan welded in. I'm actually at sea right now but I left my jeep with my mechanic for the month to nip away at it over time. He's all done. Before and after pics:







Next step is to Monstaliner the whole interior when I get home!

Been a while since I've updated. I've done a couple things. Most notably cutting my front fenders and getting a one of one custom LED Headlight. The headlights will be produced shortly by Black Mamba Off-road but for the time being I'm the only one with them.

Lots of work to be done over the next couple months before it's too cold. I have a garage full of parts but no time to install here's what she looks like as of this week

Back up 3" cube LED with rugged ridge plate /light mount




Front fenders cut






Custom LED headlights from Black Mamba Off-road.

Do those headlights have high/low beams? Or are they a single beam headlight?

They have highs and lows. The headlight is a single projector LED in the middle. When u click the high beams on the projector shuts off and the U shaped line of LEDs kick on as the Highs

Had a buddy request a photoshoot with my jeep. Who am I to say no. I think he got some good shots.




















What do you guys think?

Latest update:



My poor baby turtle got into An accident this week. Someone apparently fell asleep and blew a stop sign which cause me to broad side him at about 40mph. I dukes of hazard jumped but didn't stick the landing. I landed wheels up roof down. All kidding aside it was a pretty hard crash and the YJ held together really well. I didn't have a scratch on me and besides just general muscle soreness I'm completely unharmed. Not sure if it's salvageable yet. Everything seems to be tweaked but we'll see. Now for the pics.


























So possibly a part out or possibly looking for parts. Not sure yet.

Had to look back to that pic. It was a sticker for a local mechanic shop. Planet Auto... They invited me to drive my jeep in the St Patricks day parade with their shop. It's no longer open but the mechanic there started his own JEEP/4x4 specific shop doing awesome builds.

Check em out.
