My New Ride...

On Dec 3rd, I got me a new "loaded" Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. I've been wanting one for a couple of years, I've just been waiting to get my truck payed off so I would have equity money to fix it like I wanted. As soon as I got the Jeep, I started ordering all kinds of stuff for it. I got it all installed yesterday. It almost killed me cause I'm getting too old to crawl around under vehicles, but I wanted to do everything myself. I really like how it turned out. So far, I've bought and installed:
2.5" AEV Dual Sport lift
AEV Procal programmer
35" Goodyear Duratrac tires
16x8" Fuel Boost wheels
Ace Rock Rails
Rugged Ridge headlight and tailight protectors
Rugged Ridge black grill inserts
Quadratech floor liners front/back/cargo area
Weathertech ventshades
AntennaX stubby antenna
and tinted windows

Only thing that I have left to do is get and install a LOD front bumper.

Here are some before and after pics...hope y'all like it.

Thanks y'all ! It's only got 1100 miles on it so far, but I love it. It's got every option besides the 730 head unit...heated black leather, connectivity, remote start, 410s...the works. Well, I guess I could have gotten color coded fenders and top, but I don't like that look.

I'm not a big fan of the matchy matchy colour scheme either. I don't think it should be an option for the Rubi's to be honest but that's just my .02

Good lookin rig!

Hey now, the more options the better am I right? That way everyone's happy.
That being said, I love the coloured fendors, but not the hardtop!

Looks nice, any front or rear shots showing how much the tires extend beyond the fenders?
