Purchased a red '98 TJ about a month ago, and I've been scouring this forum for ideas on mods and customization. As a longtime painter and graphic designer, I am more than confident with cosmetic upgrades. Less so with mechanical. In any case, I'm pumped to start making changes to my stock Jeep.
I saw the idea somewhere on this forum, to log your build or project step by step. Loved it and thought I'd try it. So here goes!
-Functional components that fall in line with the "Scout" theme. (Extra lamps and exterior illumination, moderate lift upgrades, integrated GPS screens and communications capability, low profile paint scheme, expanded retrieval and first-aid capacity, etc)
My overall goal, is to make this Jeep as close to an official "Limited Edition" that would have been released by the folks at Jeep.
First modification: Rear-view mirror trick. Simply swung the thing around upside down, and BAM. Increased visibility through the windshield.
Second modification: Bedlined headlight bevels. (See pics)
