Thanks guys! The wheels are raceline beadlocks.

I work off of 141 in a shopping center. So if it was in front of a target, you found me at work haha

Picked it up last night!

Finally joined the club - picked her up last night! No pics yet because I'm still running around on skinny little wheels and tires - Don't want to post anything that will embarrass her when she grows up

Should be getting the BFG MT 285/70R17's with Mickey Thompson Classic IIIs on Friday!

In the meanwhile, looking to do the interior accent paint. I could have sworn that someone had posted that they found a matching Duplicolor, but cant' find that now. Just hoping to find something that is more readily available than waiting on an order.

Also, not being much of a painter - what steps are y'all doing to prep and paint?

Nah, the closest my shop could do was not close enough. Not close enough to put right on the body anyway. Maybe for something that was separated by black. I was considering powder coating my corners green. Now I am either going paint or powder coat black. The wife will choose that....

My Gecko

I haven't posted in a while, but I met many of you in the Gecko waiting room when we were first waiting for this color to come out. I love seeing the transformations. I finally got around to doing some mods on mine:

No, they are done with a single stage black with a ton of flattener. I still have to do the two on the hood. Did the same to the chrome stars on the rims before air brushing the edge with gecko single stage.

I took the hound dogs out for a ride in the gecko. If you do this make sure to cover the hooks of the back seat with a tarp or matt.

Here's the front of my jeep right now. Would like it to eventually look like yours.

After a quick bath. Hard to see the green in the wheels pop because it is overcast out right now.

I like the inserts, they went in easy and look great. I wish they were a little flatter black, but honestly close enough. The bumper is a Spyder, cheap especially for having a winch plate built in.

Spyder 07 12 Jeep JK Wrangler Front Rock Crawler Winch Mount Bumper w D Rings | eBay

Nice thing with that bumper, I didn't have to relocate the vacuum pump. I bought the kit to relocate, but after installing the bumper it worked just fine where it was at. I mounted the KC lights in two of the winch mounting holes for now. Will relocate when I get the winch.

I'm the one on the RIGHT side of the photo. This is while making a beer run with my wife. The other Jeep hasn't been posted, so I figured I"d do it for them! Pretty cool day for both of us to be parked in pole position!

It took longer than expected, but I finally got the wheels and tires from the dealer. She's looking a lot better now :-)

Also received my shipment from Quadratec with the security glovebox (installed) and Gecko Green paint (tonight's project).

Added my decals. Still debating on something on the side of the hood. Painting the hood hinges this weekend and then I think the exterior is done. Except for new gears and lockers for the real fun

Looks awesome. I like you did the front end parts in black, headlight bezels and grille inserts. Love the gecko color!

Added my Army style lettering. Goes with the theme but I'm not sold on it. If I can come up with a custom name or slogan I might go with that instead. Thoughts?
