I got a yellow 2001 TJ and while it crossed my mind to do a GA Tech scheme im way to much of a DAWG fan to ever fly those colors. Keep on doing this great original build you got going on and best of luck to you and yours.

Thank you guys! My little girl is just over a year now and she's doing great. She absolutely loves riding in the Jeep. My wife loves the Jeep too so she doesn't give me too much hell about the mods.

First picture is with just the bikini top and the second the fast back top.

I also made a homemade grill/radiator cover. Here is how it turned out

20" light bar off eBay for cheap. It does fit great and it's bright. I couldn't justify the big brands when i got this for less than $100 shipped.

UgaTyler On another note, I just purchased the front of Genright Aluminum flat fenders. I'm not quite ready to install the fenders so I am spacing the purchases out so my wife doesn't kill me. I'll purchase the back fenders in the next few months.

I stole this picture of the internet to show the fenders that I will be installing.

UgaTyler I am still waiting on the Genright Tire Carrier and so I haven't installed that (obviously) or the Poison Spyder tramp stamp. I have installed two of the vector UFO's and the Rugged Ridge grille mesh. It's hard to get a good picture of the UFO's so I am going to wait until I install the tramp stamp to show pictures of those.

Here is a picture of the Rugged Ridge Grille Mesh followed by my exhaust which I painted flat black with VHT, Very High Temp spray paint (matte Black).

I'm a neon fan, but if you can paint...that would be awesome and you could keep the color scheme going.

Looks clean to me and only cost me $25 for the switches and the wire. I already had a decent amount of electrical supplies.

The next few pictures are how I hang my doors in my garage. I know some people are against hanging the doors but this is my second summer doing this and this and they hang from April-Novemeber and I haven't seen any issues yet. I opted for the rubbermaid fast track system. The doors slightly rest on the ground as well.

BTW, you're Jeep looks great!
Thanks,
The 3" trail lift has been great so far. Hopefully I will be able to say that in a year or two. I think the teraflex kit would be similar.

First off, I wouldn't but the multi-top again, I would just purchase the fastback portion. I really like it's functionality and the fact that it doesn't have the bows on top like the OEM soft top. It's a pain to put on the first time but after it gets stretched out good, it isn't that hard to do. I use the bikini top ALL the time. For summertime and for Fall/spring something like this is a must if you want to go topless. I would purchase again for sure. Actually, if this one tears up and he is in business still, I will purchase again.

None at all. Taking the dash apart is easy(only 4 bolts), and there is plenty of room behind the plastic where I installed. I used a drill and a dremel to make the holes for the switches.
