Always Modding The Sahara Tan Sahara

Ok. I never did a thread on the whole vehicle modding process I did, just bits and pieces. Nothing to add to as I go along. So here it is!!! I know its a late start as a lot of crap has been done to it. So first I'll post a pick to remind you of what I did so far. I have stuff to install such as a modded grill and fenders. But the most recent will be a MBRP light bar I'm cutting a bit. On the 4dr it was on it looked awsome. On mine it looked lost so Im cutting the top, taking off the 7" Hellas. Next capping the bars on top and adding 5 Rigid Duallies upside down to keep them below roof line. The sahara tan paint will be next!
My Jeep!


The light bar!

Installed the Bushwacker flatties today. The hardwares 5/16" nuts and bolts were a nightmare! If you have to adjust them they may freeze in place and turning either way is impossible, I had to cut 3. But I do like the look and we'll see what happens in the long run!!

ok, thanks! That's what I'll do with my wheels then, as I want the argent grey---looks great with black Jeeps, IMO and much cheaper than powder coating!

I know the design is wild boars but it was sold on another forum as Gaylords. They make the custom hot rod truck bed fiberglass stuff. It was kinda a rough draft. None of the holes lined up and the turn signal slots werent right. I made it work. Kinda!!
