Here's what I've done so far:

Rod racks
Bumper lights (recently removed)
31" tires
A few stickers
Kenwood head unit
10" infinity sub
400w marine amp

How much was your marine amp? Ive got a kicker amp and it rained one day and flooded it (I picked it up and water came out of that bad boy like a water fall) didnt buy a new one, amd a day later she cranked back up. Miracle amp haha just curious how much yours was. Might be a nice upgrade anyway as mine is only 125w

Are those 31's on stock suspension?

I got mine at a pawn shop. I bargained with the owner for it down to $25. I got the sub off a friend for $20.

Going to Wilmington in a may for the first jeep event. Going to take rear seat out and create a rack for a cooler, tools, and camping gear for two.

Ditched the cooler rack idea because with the top down it won't work. So what I decided to do was make some quick discos....

Received 2" lift over weekend! Going to wait till I get bp stops to put it on. Possibly putting in full aluminum radiator at the same time since stock is leaking at the seal

Just got off work, long day but anyway; today I bed lined front flares with rust oleum texturized and also did the speaker covers. Also talked to a buddy of mine who sold his jeep for a new truck and found out he had a set of bestop tinted windows. Met up with him, tried them one and they fit! He had no use for them so I got them for free! Best jeep day in awhile. Oh and I also took out blown sub and painted center console. Good day.

Well in the past week or 2 ive added a 2" bb and new zone offroad nitro shocks. While we had it on my uncles lift, we cleaned the brake drums and greased all fittings. Looking good so far, still need to get alignment. looking good so far, next on list is either plastidip wheels or changing interior to be blue and black theme. Also rained heavy today with all window out as I watched. Went wheeling tonight with my brother and my girlfriend. Found a Honda stuck in ditch on a service road and so I pulled them out. First time every rescuing somebody. Felt good doing so. Glad to have a Jeep!

My plans for the winter:
8500 superwinch
Spartan locker
Homemade grille insert
HID's

Hopefully will have funds to do all of this over winter break!

Thank you and not to often. I'm in college but I'm definitely trying to go at least once a year over summer

How do you like the Authority tires? I have them with about 30k (mostly street with a little snow driving) and love them. The wear is much better than I thought it would be.

I like them a lot. They have been a good all around tire. I put about 15k on them so far

Since the last time I've posted in this thread (kinda forgot about it) I've done a few things.

Painted flares
Cleaned up undercarriage
Cleaned inside frame
Added engo 9k winch
Cut stock bumper at 45 degree angle and painted that as well
Removed nerf bars because I got rock sliders, haven't mounted yet
Plastidipped my wheels

Here's how it looks right now
