Future plans.... any opinions?

So, when I bought the Jeep I had every intention to making it into a work vehicle/daily driver.

I own a custom auto shop where we do everything and anything you name it. I mainly do all the book junk, engine rebuilds, paint & airbrush work. Anyhow here is what I figured for the Jeep so far.

Exterior:

Fix rust spot and full repaint. (Audi S4 Sprint Blue Pearl) as seen in picture below.

Also want to do a 3D Hot-Rod style flame on hood.





on the doors will be the business logo


Interior:

thinking of making new seat covers as the blue meshed in with the tan just doesnt look to good to me.

Suspension:

Debating on taking the body lift off and replacing it with a 4" suspension lift with 33" tires

(keep in mind I really doubt I will be taking this on the trails, at least for the time being.)

Other then that the rest is still up in the air, so if you have any idea's feel free to shoot them my way

That would look pretty cool. Once you get that done nothing makes a truck more mean then BIG BUMPERS front and rear. For some reason they just make the truck look massive

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Lol no that's only on mine. I give small 3" decals to the customers, if they want to place it on their ride, sweet. If not that's cool to. I also give them cards in case they are asked who did the work.
