Two things. The skull plate that took the place of the tire carrier- is it available for sale somewhere or did you fabricate it? ...and does it take the place of our 3rd high mounted brake light? Tire make and size please. BTW- nice job.

Gearing & lockers are gonna set you back $4K, but in the meantime you're gonna buy some lights?



If that doesn't perfectly exemplify the Jeep mod sickness, I don't know what does.

Classic.

That light bar will look hot on your Jeep, btw.

Haha...I'm not rude, just sarcastic.

That light bar is gonna look good, though. I thought about one of those, but with my lift and tires I wouldn't be able to get in and out of my garage. And doing house construction to accommodate my Jeep...that's just going too far.

Better idea build a separate garage/shop for the jeep if I was back on the mainland and not going to move for a wile I would. But I did construction before I joined the army and like building things also.

Looks nice...... Since you asked, the lift doesn't seem to match the tire/wheel size.

Are you saying the wheels are to small for the lift?
