Great rig TJG!!!

In this thread or another one I saw you mention "door trim" for smoothing out the fender edges after you cut them.

I'm looking for something similar, not for cut flares but for the inside of the rear fenders I trimmed for my ARB rear bumper. Do you have any links for what you used?

Something like this: Cowles Products/Black StyleGuard edge trim (T5602) | Door Edge Molding | AutoZone.com

Any local auto store should have some.

While we are the subject of your cut fenders, i see in pic below that you mounted the turn signal under the fender. Can you elaborate on what you did or get a closer pic. Thanks



Nice pic by the way

I cut down the mount on one side to clean it up a little bit, and used one screw to mount it. It's pretty secure!

Yes it is. I've got a scene of some Flying Tigers P-40's shooting down some Ki-28's. The feature plane on my tattoo is #48 belonging to ace "Tex" Hill. He passed a few years ago.

Good eye!

So, after viewing this thread and a couple others I've purchased the Smittybuilt G.E.A.R. Overhead console. I have a full size Galaxy SSB CB radio that's going to get hung from it. TJG, it's all you fault LOLZ. The MOLLE should definitely make it adaptable as all get-out too. Disclaimer: Anything I do to my JK is due to the influence of crazy, I mean awesome, people here.

Poison Spyder crossmember is installed! Definitely feels much more substantial than the stock one so we will see how it holds up. Install was very straightforward. I'd definitely recommend it (as I would any Poison Spyder product).

Quick tip just in case you're interested...spray the markers with a light coat of PlastiDip and they basically disappear during the day but light up nice at night.

THEY'RE HERE! THEY'RE HERE!

These are AMAZING. The color is just awesome, and the quality is definitely beyond my expectation. I am so excited. Hoping I have some time to install them tomorrow after I take my last finals for the semester!

Congrats! I'm not sure if the 2 door is much different but a tip when putting them on the rear seat is to fold the seat a bit while you do it. Makes it 100 times easier.

Thanks for the tip, I hope a few people see it... I sold my rear seat so no worries there!

Wet Okoles installed! It was a bit of a process (I took the seats out to do it) but not a hard install at all. They are thoughtfully designed and high quality. Very, very happy with how they turned out!

Very slick! When my stock seats wear a bit more I'm getting some to match my rig?

Wow. I think the seats really make the green pop. Looks much better now. Nicely done.

Awesome build! I have a lot of similar views but in red accents. Its gonna be a slow build for me but I started so I will finish. Your off-road videos are probably some of the best I've seen. Great work! This thread is very inspiring, thank you.

Thanks everyone! Yeah, I think the green seat covers kind of tie all the other green stuff together. Looks much better now. They DO make you sweat a little more, but its not too bad.

Yes it does. I had originally wanted to "Black Out" my Jeep.. but, the color pops.. and I think Red would do the same. That's what we got them for right? Making them our own. That and i'm a Red Raider so.. naturally...

I've seen a few red on black jeeps and it looks really sharp. Way easier to find products in your accent color too! I'd do it!

Yeah, I imagine the lime green requires a lot more custom work. I'm pretty much convinced I will.. Deployed at the moment and just spent $2000 on new bumpers and windows(Jeep was broken into and they stole a window). Trying to decide on a lift at the moment but once I'm back things will start moving on the jeep. Can't wait!

Thank you to you and your husband by the way, from one to another!
