White Mamba Build (Slow and Steady)

I thought I'd go ahead and post some pictures of what I've done to my 2010 Wrangler so far, I bought it March 27, 2013. I haven't done a whole lot yet and it's going to be a while before I can get it to where I want it (hence the slow and steady build name). Anyways, enjoy!

2010 Wrangler Sport
6 Speed Manual Transmission

Day I brought it home from the dealership:

The "biggest" mod I've done so far was install a new front bumper. The stock bumper was a pain in the butt, but all in all, it was a fun experience and I really enjoy the look of the new steel bumper.

Olympic 4x4 Products Rock Bumper, Olympic 4x4 Products D-Ring Mounts, Smittybilt black D-Rings, and Daystar black d-ring washers:

While installing the rock bumper, I broke one of the fog light mounts so the light was wiggling around. This was bugging the crap out of me so I bought the Olympic 4x4 Products Light Pods. I think they give the bumper a bit of a rugged look and am pleased with this purchase. Very simple install, I had to drill holes to bolt the pods up, but it took all of about an hour total:

Olympic also sells a steel frame cover to match the bumper and replace the OEM plastic cover. I'm thinking of buying that in the future to dress up the look a little bit, but for now I think it's fine.

Installed the Olympic 4x4 Products front bumper frame cover; it looks much better than the OEM plastic one and cleans up the look of Jeep. Install took all of about an hour with completely removing the bumper and then re-installing it. Anyways; here it is:

Installed the Smittybilt SRC rear bumper tonight. I really like how this thing looks and it is very solid. It makes me wish I would've installed a Smittybilt front bumper as well:

Your Jeep is looking great! very clean.
I'm curious about those frame cover. Do you have pics of the overall front shot? Hard to get a feel of how the cover looks that close. Love to see how the cover looks, seeing the whole jeep.
