Exhaust is Magnaflow, not sure what model but its a nice deep note and not excessively loud. Just right for a 6 cyl.

The light protectors were on it when I got it. think the rear ones were rugged ridge but the fronts are just plastic pieces of shiz.

So do you enjoy not having the padding on the rollbar? Really considering taking mine off, but can't decide. If I could leave it on the overhead and windshield parts, but take it off the two back arms, id do that, but the back piece is solid.

I like the yellow to stand out more. so yea definately would remove it. But its a bummer that its not there when I take the whole family wheeling. Kinda dangerous for the kids heads bouncing around back there.

Here a few pics from Jeep beach:





And a vid of me going through the course:

Got my sailcloth Rampage frameless top in today, Time for an upgrade The people where I park my Jeep for the day decided that it would look better with a ton of tiny white dots all over it. Tons of overspray... they got it all off the paint, but the tops they couldnt do anything with so they replaced those (frameless top and tonneau cover). Now gotta figure out how to hide the overspray on the bedlined parts without taking them off and respraying them. fun times.

I had a black yj that is now a black yj with yellow accents. not the same but since i did it myself, i love it Everything you have done with your jeep is nice.

Yeah I love looking at that thread! come to think of it.. our jeeps are kind of opposites lol. like with square headlights, yellow accents on black. Yours is round headlights and black accents on yellow. i like it! we should get the jeeps together and take a pic! haha

yea me either, but job changes and less money mean cant afford fuel anymore. Might have gotten away with getting a scooter but I really couldnt do that to myself.

Amazing job!! Thank you for the inspiration. I've just gotten my 1997 TJ back from my teenager, and I"m ready to start rebuilding it, making it more awesome than it ever was. GIRL POWER!! hahaha.... Guess I'll be doing most of it myself. Thanks for all the tips and hints!

I read through this entire thread too. It was an amazing Jeep adventure. The ending was a big let down though. But, the awesome part about having a Jeep, like yours, is the memories. Life is all about the great memories. Thanks for sharing your wonderful Jeep adventures.

Love the build man, if you don't mind I might copy the interior at least for the paint. Haven't gotten to mod mine out much and I would actually be able to afford the interior color change. But anyway love the jeep

Love that yellow!!!!!! I wanted a yellow one SOOOOO badly, just couldn't find one in my area or even near me so I went with my second choice......RED. About a month later I saw a nice yellow one on C.L.............go figure.
