Nice! Enjoy it. I had to order mine late on purpose, I gotta deploy for couple of months but it will be here when I get back. Just in time for some WNY snow. Yupp!!

New pics

My baby needs a bath as my route is quite aggressive in some areas, haha

Got my new BFG A/T KO tires yesterday, and tonight I installed the grill inserts that kramer2k recommended in a previous post (they're awesome!)







Still waiting on my black 'Jeep' emblem and new radio antenna to arrive tho

They're definitely a must-have mod IMO. They're really much heavier and substantial than they appear to be in pictures. They're not a thin and chintzy metal. They're very easy to install. You simply remove the grill (5 minute job) and screw each slat individually to the grille. They come with little backing plates that hold the grille inserts to the grille.

This option looks the most OEM of all the options I've seen done. Sure, you can do the $20 gutter mesh mod, but that will take longer and you need to apply zip ties and glue to your grille. I'll pass.
Thanks, going to be ordering it next week. Looking for things to break up all the green on the Sahara. Any other suggestions on black pieces to add on? I already did the off road black antenna and black Jeep entry guards.

I cant wait to put my soft doors on - they are all black. I think it's gonna look awesome. Of course it's the wrong time of year for that.

Did you guys all go with the antenna-x? I have one, & while it looks great & is way more functional on the trail, I get crappy reception. Which, really, is fine as I rarely listen to the radio.

I think the doors will looks sweet! Can't wait for next May to see them.

I went with the Antenna-X and love the improved look. I can't speak for the reception because I actually have not once flipped over to AM/FM mode on my radio. I has been on Sirius the first few weeks and then over to Pandora via AUX cable the last few days. I never listen to the radio.

I'm loving that I can stream from my phone & I put a ton of music on a little 16 gig flash drive & just leave it plugged into the console. Man I heart my new Jeep.

She goes in Sat for sleeve & gussets, lift & the 35's were delivered on Friday (already thinkin I shoulda went with 37's lmao!). I just got my lca/shock skids today & hopefully my whole skid system & beefy tie rod will go back on sometime this month. Waiting on my Ace bumper/tire carrier & then we're done. For a while anyway. I cannot wait to get it off road and see what she's got!

I'm looking at those EVO front and rear LCA skids you posted about earlier. I could even get them welded on the same time as my gussets. Hmm....

Picked mine up yesterday, it looks closest to the middle pic so far; two overcast days. It could have been a little darker but I like it, its a fitting color for a Jeep.

Actual painting I did today. Did up the front with Plastidip to see if I like it in black first. And did up a radiator guard with Cloverleaf (shamrock) stamped aluminum painted with Rustoeum Painter Touch Satin Oregano color (damn close to CG). SHe's IRISH dammit! Thinking I may do the air vents in the interior with the oregano.
Unfortunately shot at sundown

CG hide dirt pretty good. Well, unless, you went mudding or anything. But for it just not being washed it covers it up pretty well. As far as chips go, I guess it all depends on where it is and how keen of an eye you have. It took me a month, after I washed mine, to find a chip I have on the bottom front of the back driver side fender.

Check the other (drivers) side. Your antenna is where the badge would be.

Edit: Just saw an earlier driver side pic.

Damn...Jeep is getting lazy.
