Next step is a couple stereo things to do, and the Poisen Spyder side armor plates I have in the garage. Then will hae to do some paint touch up on the chassis from winter, bed line the wheel wells and install the front liners, along with some other touch ups and clean ups...

we'll see.
so just took the jeep in to get the seals changed out as my freedom top leaked. I asked them about your top service guys said they never heard of it. Showed them this post and they said, "WOW!! thats crazy insane, i wish they would do that on all of them, we have a drawing board that all issues go on and leaks is at the TOP." lol by the way jeep looks sick my friend. I still have some upgrades to do.

What RI brackets did you go with for the A pillar and windshield so your Snorkel fits?

Nice jeep

HI, VERY nice jeep it looks like you are done with it and ready to move on to your next project, I have been in the same boat, when you
are ready just put it on this forum in the for sale area, and it should move
quick, I also have a 2012 jk-s and would like to get the diesel when Jeep
gets on the ball, Jeep has had a diesel since 07/ 08 in Europe! You should
get about 35k or more from the right person, the issue that I see is that
in that price range you are up against a person who may want to order
new from the factory, but we all wish you the best and I am sure you will
do well when the time comes...

I then bed lined the PS windshield mounts and got them installed. So the lights won't take more than a few minutes tomorrow night.

My flip down tailgate molle panel also came today and will get installed this week. In keeping with my blacked out military theme in mind I had it made with the words BLACK OPS in it. Should look cool with the bags mounted in it.
Where did you get your Molle panel from? Id like to get one with USMC thanks

Not sure about OP, but the one I bought came from eBay. The seller is Alanjk. He will add a name/phrase to the tailgate at no extra charge.

JK Gear MOLLE Panels for Rear Storage w Fold Down Tailgate Package Deal | eBay

Alan was great to work with! I was ordering these as a gift and didn't know what I was doing. He was very helpful, fast shipping, product is beautiful! I wouldn't hesitate to buy something from him again!

Great Build

This is a great thread! I intend on following your progress. I love the look, and hopefully in the next year my Jeep will look as aggressive!

Keep up the good work/posts/pics!

Conrad

Very nice ride bro! We have gone in very similar directions with our jeep. I envy that front bumper you have. I may sell my rugged ridge and buy that one soon…and the rear bumper to match.

This is a great thread. I've pulled a few good ideas from this that I plan to do with my JK.

The Jeep is still alive.

Just wanted to drop a note on this thread to say that the "WidowMaker"/"Black Widow" is still alive... Still living in Michigan.... and still on the trails. Second owner now, just reading through and appreciating the thread and detail for the build.

Kargo master roof rack is on, but we're engineering the light mounts to get the led's looking good again. Making some custom brackets for the windshield spots, and making a custom mount for the front bar of the kargo master rack for the 50. Also ordered the spare relocation kit for the trek top from Ace, and the high lift jack mount. Photos to come shortly. Weekend projects!
