My Jeep

A while back I posted looking for parts for a Jeep that I bought that had been hit in the front. All the damage has been fixed and I am very happy with it. What do you guys think? Any suggestions.

P.S. 2 pics have bald tires I know (Before anyone guilts me about it)... The last and most recent has Pro Comp Muds on it.

Not bad... personally I'd stay away from the chrome and euro tail look. Makes you look like you watched The Fast and the Furious one three many times.

Also those fender flares look REAAAAAALLY wide...unless you plan on going with wider tires/different rims with less backspacing/wheel spacers in the future, I'd try to find a cheap set of narrower flares.

And I'd remove the jugs on the bumpers too.

Of course, that's just me...it's your Jeep

Nice to see you got her all fixed up though!

For a vehicle that was damaged, it looks pretty darn good...

As it sits, it looks a little, I dunno, like it's squatting or something.
If it were me, I'd put a few inches of lift on it.
That would bring it up to better proportion with the flares I think.

Another idea would be to trim up those bumpers a bit. Bring the ends in, well, about as far as they will go. Lose the "Milk Jugs"

**edit HAHAH S3! we were both thinking the same thing, at the same time.

I think he did the Chrome grill overlay to cover up damage to his grill. Noticed that on his other post from when he got this Jeep. But yeah maybe he should paint it or something.

The paint looks gorgeous. Black is such a great looking color when it is clean, but is such a bear to keep clean. As for what I think of it.....I think it has potential. Not a fan of the head/tail lights or the flares or the chrome grill cover, but I like the Jeep itself. Ultimately, it's your Jeep and you should build it however you want. Welcome to the madness. It never goes away, you know.....

I don't know.. I kinda like the look of the headlights. Makes it look like eyeballs
I'm not very fond of the tail lights, but they just aren't my thing.
Overall, it looks great! I don't know what the front end damage was that it had, but it sure looks good now.
I would definitely take the jugs off the bumpers, and maybe even swap the rear bumper out for something better.
A 2" lift would look pretty sweet too.

You've done an excellent job of putting your Jeep back together. You should be very proud of it. Thanks for the update.

Looks good but lose the chrome, and once you lift it and put wider tires it will make the Bushwakers look great,trust me, and yes ditch the euros lol

Everything looks great minus the tails. I'm not a real fan of the euro tails on jeeps. Spacers might work for the stance if you dont plan on getting real rough with it.

Just curious but how much did those headlights run?

What did you use to paint the fenders with? Mine are really faded and I painted the jugs so it's looking a little silly now.
