Did you just cut the stock fenders to look like that?

I just got a magnaflow hi flow cat delivered today, dynomax cat back will be delivered tomorrow then I'll probably have a local shop weld it all in Thursday. Also have new rock sliders being delivered this week and some tinted windows to go along with the sunrider top I installed.

In the past few weeks since I've had it I've had the frame fixed up near the tc skid plate and tc drop installed, replaced cracked exhaust manifold, replaced a few busted ccv replaced and rubber gas lines from tank to metal lines replaced, installed bestop sunrider top, installed cb radio. Still need to change front and rear diff fluid, tc tail cone seal, rear diff yoke seal, fix small holes in drivers side floor board, replace cowl to windshield gasket, and the list will keep growing... Much faster than my wallet.

Yes sir i did. Wasn't sure how it would look, and had been debating on it for a while. Glad I did it. It never ends, I ended up installing the tj signal lights I had on the flares for the hell of it.

Thanks! Yea I don't like to spend my money, rather do it myself. Me and my bro went half on a bender. I will probably put some tubes on there, next time I make it his way.

I like those footwell lights. What kind and where did you get them? Also how did you wire them in?

I've got just the stock light on the drivers side and it doesn't give me much lighting at night. I've gotta dig into the speaker bar that the po installed to see why those center lights don't work.

yea just look for any generic led strips, they can be had for almost a dollar each if shipped from china but i paid. 5? bucks for the two because the seller was only 10 miles from me and i got them in 2 days. auto parts stores sell the same strips for 19.99 but with stupid battery powered controls. much better to hardwire them in.

Well, if you can figure out a way to mount it and you have a use for it, go for it!
I like the console pad, looks good!

Had to replace the starter. Good thing my dad was smart enough to buy a lifetime warranty for his starter so I can get replacements also. Free fix, hell's yeah.
