How did you install the bushwacker flatties with the fender liners so cleanly?!

I did not do the install on them they were done at a local off road shop. The do look clean but I don't have anything else to compare them too. The shop owner did mention they are very easy to install.

It was a toss up between the Dune and White for me...I went down to the dealership on Monday to check them both out, still couldn't decide. Then when I got their on Friday they had decided for me by taking the dune into their shop and adding "$8000" in a lift, 35's, and decals. Needless to say I am now the proud owner of a White JK, and once I saw it on purchase day I knew I made the right choice because it fulfilled my dreams of having a vehicle to match a Stormtrooper.

$8000 lift.. wow that must have been one tall Jeep.... dealers do some outrageously priced options... then again someone will buy it..

When I was at the dealership picking up my jeep, I guess the dunes had just come in and I asked "OMG, what's that color?"

The salesman says, "Dune".

I say to my friend jokingly, " ... as in Dune Not Buy". The salesman gave me a dirty look, and walked off... Lol. I'm like "what, I was kidding... Damn!!"

No she wasn't.....I told her I'd wait for her to be off work and we'd look together. She said she trusted my judgement, and as long as she got an auto with 3.73, shed be happy...and no Rock Lobster.....I saw the Dune and thought being here in the desert it was a natural choice......first words out of her mouth were "you've got to be f%#^ing kidding me!".....husband failure.....as the saying goes "a happy wife is a happy life", so she got the "infidel"....
I personally think Dune off the lot looks meh, but it's really easy to dress up....once you start accenting it with either a lighter color or black it's a really sharp color. Since everyone is doing black, I decided to use a lighter sand color which really made things stand out.

In a local arroyo testing it out. So far I've added Ace rock rails and an Olympic bumper with the front hitch. Moving slowly due to money concerns.

You're right someone will buy it...as in it was sold on Monday when I stopped in to get my leaking top looked at.

Noticed the addition to the front bumper. Did you add the bull bar, or did you buy a new bumper? Your Moab looks awesome. Dune on black rocks!

I can't believe how much your rig resembles mine....or maybe the other way around lol.

I'm thinking of going with the smittybilt flat fenders. I think that will break some of the dune up on the front.

Keep the mods coming!!

Haha. Ok I am a dick, but I think you missed the point of my comment. Either way I was being a dick, but you just took it the wrong way.
