Thank you, I definetly notice the looks and people pointing around town thanks to the color and I've gotten some nice comments on it. I just can't run from the cops anymore and hide , j/k. Can't wait to do more to it.

I'll be building an exoskeleton, rack, rear bumper, and rockers in the month to come.

^x2! It looks a lot more complicated than it actually is. I made my key chain while my daughter was eating lunch. Like most things, it just takes a little time and effort. If you can tie a knot in a shoe lace, you can make a paracord bracelet.

Your trim looks really nice. I need to redo mine. I found a better paint shortly after I did it. Been too lazy to redo it though.

I think your Gecko was the first I saw it on. I went back and forth for a while but I'm really glad I pulled the trigger. I think it really ties things together nicely. I'm doing the speaker covers next.

Yea I did mine then gouged my paint bc the mail man walked up with a package and I didn't hear him. Screwdriver slipped. I'll redo it anyway so no big deal but that irritated me. Lol

I keep meaning to post some pics in the thread but for whatever reason I am just now getting around to it. I think part of it has been that I tell myself I will post a few when I'm done modding but I'm coming to realize that day may not come. I have a set of Ace Rock Sliders sitting in the garage now that are waiting to be put on. Also have a Teraflex tire carrier on order. Thinking about getting new bumpers but then that will lead to other things and the list goes on and on and on.

Nice rig! I love those seat covers! I had those in the shopping cart but pulled back at the last minute because I thought the green wouldn't match. I was 100% wrong on that one!

Thanks! I was a bit nervous about the color when I ordered them but it ended up being a perfect match.

Closing my eyes... Lah, lah, lah.

Don't want to see it again lest I be forced to dip again into the mod money.

PS Awesome.

Thanks all for all the kind comments on the Jeep and seat covers. I have to admit I think the seat covers are one of the best mods I've made.

Yes it is an air compressor. I learned about it on this forum and then did a write up of the install which is located here: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/via...-a-169635.html

The write up also contains the purchase info.

I bought them through Quadratec but you can also buy them from Wet Okole directly if you want.

They took about 4 weeks to show up after I ordered them because they make them to order.

Who knew my seat covers would generate so much activity! I've had a number of PM's asking me for details so I decided I would post them here.

The color is as far as I can tell an almost perfect match to the Gecko color. One of the reasons I went with full piping is because if the color wasn't a perfect match it would be harder to tell since it was really just an accent to the covers and not the dominate color.

I had a set of WO seat covers on a truck I used to have and made the mistake of getting a bright color as the dominate color. The covers faded over time from the sun and they looked like garbage after 2 years. Plus the lighter colors show the dirt so much more which make them look more faded than they really are.

If you search around the forum you can find some pictures of my wife's Jeep. She also has the WO cover but went with grey hibiscus. She's had them on since March or April and with the lighter color they are already starting to look dingy from the dirt. The drivers seat is a noticeable difference in from any of the other seats given it sees a lot more use. Nothing a good washing won't resolve but taking them off and on is a PIA.

I'm spraying both sets about once a month with the UV spray WO sells which I didn't do with the pair I had in my old truck. So far so good as neither mine or my wife's are showing any signs of fading from the sun and they sit outside with the top down a good bit. We also have spiderweb shades on right now with the heat and I imagine that is also blocking a good bit of the UV.



This is a copy of my order from Quadratec when I ordered them back in May. From the date of the order they took about 4 weeks to arrive at my door.

Below is part number, description, and price.

14163 4002 OKOLE FR 11-UP JK W/O AIRBAG & W/HEIGHT ADJUSTERS $239.99
14164 3002 OKOLE REAR 11-UP JK 4 DOOR MODEL $259.99
91084 6014 FULL PIPING COLOR-NEON GREEN 14 $39.99
91084 5012 FULLY PIPED SEAT COLOR-BLACK 12 $0.00
91084 6014 FULL PIPING COLOR-NEON GREEN 14 $39.99
91084 5012 FULLY PIPED SEAT COLOR-BLACK 12 $0.00
91085 9402 WHITE LOGO COLOR $0.00
91085 9303 ORIGINAL $0.00
91085 9101 FRONT SEAT BACK POCKETS-PAIR $24.99
91084 7014 SEAT BELT PADS-PAIR-NEON GREEN 14 $12.99

Hope this helps everyone and if there is something you still want to know about them that I didn't cover feel free ask (PM or otherwise)

I'm doing the same thing. This is the exact seat covers I've been looking for.
