Month long makeover finally complete!

Over the past month or so I have added and changed a lot of things on my 06 Rubi. We bought a car for my wife (08 WK) and saed some money by buying through a private party so with some of the saved money I splurged a little bit and got some parts I have wanted. Here's what I got.

Front and rear bumpers for JCR
Rock Sliders from JCR
Or Fab Tire Carrier
Rampage frameless top
Hi Lift Jack
ZJ Tie Rod
Half Doors with soft uppers
Hella Black Magic Driving Lights
Hella H4 headlights
Cruise Control
LED third brake lights
LED dome, dash, and HVAC lights
JVC head unit

Here are some pictures












Overall I am very happy with the new look. Now I have to go test it!

Here's the WK we got the wife just for fun

Here is what the Jeep looked like about 3 months ago. 2" BB on 31" Firestone A/Ts (crap tires)


Here is how she sits now.


Needless to say, I am very happy with the progress.

Looks good, but I'm wondering why you didn't install that last bolt on each side...

The bolts that came with the sliders aren't long enough. I am going to pick some up today.

Very nice. I assume you got the bright white LEDs. I went with blue. It does make a difference.

I like the tire carrier. I don't need the space for the gas/water cans, but the carrier itself is great.

Have fun.

Thanks guys. They do make an Or Fab carrier without the space for the cans too.

Thanks guys. They are 33x12.5x15 duratracs sitting on a 2" bb and a 1.25" bl. Once my bank account recovers from all of that I'm going to get the savvy 4" kit with anti rock.

Very nice! It sure looks different now. It's amazing how a few updates will totally change a Jeeps looks. Looks like it was worth the wait for all the parts to get power coated.

I think the top alone did a lot for the look.
