best 2 door build i've ever seen. You are taking the concept of customization to a new level. It's so cool to see someone treat the stock vehicle like a blank canvas, then turn it into a work of art.

Ok down the home stretch!! This time the "Bully Dog tuner for Jeep" install. couple of pics for the install of the power cord and holder.

First I fished my favorite way ino the engine bay!



Second route the wire to an accessory lead on the fuse block.



Third, I tested an unused fuse bay that turned on with the key.



Fourth route the wire into the fuse block. I went as low as i could with the hole almost the exact size of the wire. it has to stay ow because of water tight lip around the box. Then caulk it in!



Heres the adapter for the fuse that they give you. Hooks on the stab.



Last "adapt" bracket to your needs! HehHeh!!



And mount!! ( ty wraps are temporary)

Started the AEV lift yesterday! installed the front end so far as well as the front control arm correction kit!!



Bilsteins were a PITA to install! Unlike the Mopar witch have two nuts to tighten them on,the Bilsteins have a nut and you must hold an allen key on the top to tighten it! You have to cut some of the inner fender away to get it in there!!





The rear is going easier!! Got it about 3/4 of the way done tonight.

when it gets closer to the weekend I will pm you and I think so. If it's the jeep I'm thinking of the kid added green lights in the wheel wells and drives around with them on. are the wheels black and Crome?

the jeep I'm talking about is different, but I think I've seen that one before. Is your buddy interested in the trip?

I completely understand. it's going to my first trip there along with the people that I know that are coming (besides you and your buddy) I didn't realize it opens at 8 I thought it opened earlier but I talked to the guys I know and they said they'd rather leave Saturday so if you would like we can meet somewhere local and drive down as a group?

Looks awesome! Why the change of skid? The TNT looks nice I like the fact that it's aluminum

Thanks!! And the river raider was built tough as nails but (like a lot of guys) could not get it to fit right. Didn't play well with the tranny cooler lines , and the bracket holes didn't line up with the skid. I didn't want to drill and ream the holes. You really shouldn't have to on a product built for your machine!!!

Sure!! I do love love my River Raider snork and corners. Would buy these products again. But I think the skid needs a bit of tweaking.

Been a month since I posted last . Just a bit of an update!
First off bought the Rubi anniversary hood. Just installed it for a dry fit.

dvdsjk/media/IMG_20140517_150644_168.jpg.html][/URL]

Also bought a prototype tire carrier from Action Camper. This pic of the white jk is the actual unit I bought!! I thought it would look good on my 2door. Plus give me room and a swing out style. Right now my homemade unit is bolted solid. Its getting powder coated as we speak.
