atraver Kargo master roof rack is on, but we're engineering the light mounts to get the led's looking good again. Making some custom brackets for the windshield spots, and making a custom mount for the front bar of the kargo master rack for the 50. Also ordered the spare relocation kit for the trek top from Ace, and the high lift jack mount. Photos to come shortly. Weekend projects!

The Jeep is still alive.

Just wanted to drop a note on this thread to say that the "WidowMaker"/"Black Widow" is still alive... Still living in Michigan.... and still on the trails. Second owner now, just reading through and appreciating the thread and detail for the build.

Palehorse68 This is a great thread. I've pulled a few good ideas from this that I plan to do with my JK.

UgaTyler Very nice ride bro! We have gone in very similar directions with our jeep. I envy that front bumper you have. I may sell my rugged ridge and buy that one soon…and the rear bumper to match.

Great Build

This is a great thread! I intend on following your progress. I love the look, and hopefully in the next year my Jeep will look as aggressive!

Keep up the good work/posts/pics!

Not sure about OP, but the one I bought came from eBay. The seller is Alanjk. He will add a name/phrase to the tailgate at no extra charge.

JK Gear MOLLE Panels for Rear Storage w Fold Down Tailgate Package Deal | eBay

Alan was great to work with! I was ordering these as a gift and didn't know what I was doing. He was very helpful, fast shipping, product is beautiful! I wouldn't hesitate to buy something from him again!

I then bed lined the PS windshield mounts and got them installed. So the lights won't take more than a few minutes tomorrow night.

My flip down tailgate molle panel also came today and will get installed this week. In keeping with my blacked out military theme in mind I had it made with the words BLACK OPS in it. Should look cool with the bags mounted in it.

Nice jeep

HI, VERY nice jeep it looks like you are done with it and ready to move on to your next project, I have been in the same boat, when you
are ready just put it on this forum in the for sale area, and it should move
quick, I also have a 2012 jk-s and would like to get the diesel when Jeep
gets on the ball, Jeep has had a diesel since 07/ 08 in Europe! You should
get about 35k or more from the right person, the issue that I see is that
in that price range you are up against a person who may want to order
new from the factory, but we all wish you the best and I am sure you will
do well when the time comes...

JKMigs What RI brackets did you go with for the A pillar and windshield so your Snorkel fits?

we'll see.
so just took the jeep in to get the seals changed out as my freedom top leaked. I asked them about your top service guys said they never heard of it. Showed them this post and they said, "WOW!! thats crazy insane, i wish they would do that on all of them, we have a drawing board that all issues go on and leaks is at the TOP." lol by the way jeep looks sick my friend. I still have some upgrades to do.

Elarson April update...got Offraod Heros top installed as well as test fit my trail doors...looks awesome. Next step is a couple stereo things to do, and the Poisen Spyder side armor plates I have in the garage. Then will hae to do some paint touch up on the chassis from winter, bed line the wheel wells and install the front liners, along with some other touch ups and clean ups...

Elarson Had time after the stabilizer to get my JKS Quicker Discos on too!!

Tomorrow's plan is to finally get to the front/rear Poison Spyder Diff Covers that have been waiting as well.

Elarson Full set of Body Armor trail doors now in transit. I have a ton of stuff piling up in my garage waiting for time and some warmer days to get installed.

LarsA Awesome Jeep; well done! If I lived in MI, I would've been all over that ACE sponsorship myself!
03-20-2013 10:09 PM
Elarson Offroad Heros soft top, Fox steering stabilizer, and Poison Spyder diff covers waiting for me when I get back to Michigan! Next is trail doors for spring!

Elarson Thought I would provide a little update in this thread for the sake of tracking my project.

This last week my ACE Engineering Sponsorship was finished. This involved the installation of the following ACE products to go with the rock sliders and narrow tube fenders I already had:

Pro Stubby Stinger front bumper - had them install the 10" Rigid LED in it
Pro Rear w/Tire Carrier and 2 6" Rigid LED
Gussets on the front C's
LCA Skids
ACE Graphics in Flat Black

I also got the AEV Snorkel installed, JKS Quicker Discos, MORE Dead Pedal, and did some general cleanup.

I damaged my OME SS when I got the truck buried at a local off-road park a week ago so today I ordered a FOX 2.0 Performance IFP Stabilizer to replace it. I received the PS rocker protector plates but won't be installing them until it warms up enough to work outside easier.

Having been under the Jeep a lot this week for an oil change and maintenance I need to order some diff covers soon. The stock ones are actually tore up a bit and look just slightly thicker than aluminum foil.

Stay tuned!!!

Elarson Little project update:

Yesterday I installed some Vector UFO's in the holes of the tailgate normally holding the rubber tire carrier bumpers as well as the electrical pass thru. Looks MUCH better!

Today I ordered:

MORE Grab Handles with grips
JKS Quick Disco's
Poison Spyder Body Armor - Powder Coated Black
AEV Snorkle
Metalcloak Aluminum Fender liner kit (front)

Can't wait for the next steps of the build to arrive!!

Not trying to throw you under the bus pal but hey........it'll buy me some latitude. Congrats on the great looking rig!
Hey thanks man...I actually have the most supportive and amazing wife. She has supported me in all of the crazy car, truck, and Jeep stuff I have done over the last 12 years together and believe me when I say it has been a LOT. Probably 10 cars.....ouch.. lol

Yea no doubt. I actually had not seen that as a theme when I started but then I started seeing them everywhere. Recently I noticed someone on here had one for awhile along with a youtube channel so I decided to change it out of respect for him being here first. I refer to mine as Project WidowMaker now. I messaged a mod to try to get my build thread changed but have not heard anything yet....
