I love this thread. Exact jeep. Keep going ! I just ordered black series magna flow dual exhaust. Can't wait. Spacers look great also. Are they 1.5 or the 1.75s.

Thanks for the kind words! The spacers are 1.75s. I was debating between them and the 1.5s. Im sure glad I went with the wider ones as I have found that the stock Rubi wheels have little to no offset and these are perfect!!!!

Really liking your build man! Sweet decals for sure. Where did you end up getting them from? Cause I'm looking into some new ones for mine.

Okay sweet I thought so! I'm just still trying to decide which decals wood look good on mine! 😁 I'm thinking maybe an army star on the hood, but I'm not sure...

I don't know what the difference is but I ordered the ones for the AEV hood... I really like them! I don't really like anything on the top of the hood as far as decals go...just me though! Your rig looks great! Maybe put one of those vents...they look cool! I'm still trying to decide about my side "Wrangler" & "Unlimited" decals...remove them? Keep 'em or get blue to match the others? Decisions decisions....

Nothing big but plasti dipped the front jeep emblem and followed one of the threads on here to paint the "jeep" and "since 1941" appliqué on the grab handle blue to match the exterior accents. Anything to keep me busy until the lift and cb install!!

Updates to build

Since my last entry, I've swapped the stock wheels for Pro Comp Helderado's, trimmed the front bumper and installed AVP end caps, added Hi Lift jack and Teraflex tailgate mount. i also cut the stock fenders, making them flat, blacked out the side marker light and rewired them to double as turn signal lights.

I finally received and installed the Bushwacker flat flares. I smoked out the side marker lights and because of the re wire mod I did a while back, they double as turn signal lights as well! I'm happy!

I like the build... How is the 13" AntennaX working. I have ordered one, but have read mix reviews.

I got one a few weeks ago and haven't noticed any drop off in signal. Been very pleased - it is a big visual improvement from the stock aluminum
