1st Jeep '15 Willys - the modding has begun!

Hello all, just checking in. I purchased my first jeep about a month ago. And it has more than delivered. I've never really enjoyed any vehicle I have owned like I do this one. I make sure to get her Dirty atleast once a week.

I've already put in
2.5" TerraFlex suspension lift
Barricade trail force bumper w/LED lights
Cut the factory airdam down to fit the new bumper
Raxiom LED headlight kit
Besttop duster cover
rugged Ridge mesh top
SmittyBilt GEAR (molle) tailgate cover & front seat covers
DNA Jeep custom tail light covers (Autobot)
.50 cal replica FM/AM antenna (black)

Also
Home made mesh grill inserts
Plastidipped all hinges
Plastidipped corner cowls
Painted exhaust flat black (like it should have came)

Need to take a more recent shot

If you are in Vegas, hit me up if you are heading for a trail.

Sorry about the multiple comments, iPad would only let me upload one photo at a time.

Thanks guys. I make sure to hit at least a small trail every week. I live in vegas, and have been out to APEX the past two weekends. I'm going out to try a more rocky mountain pass this weekend at Blue Diamond. Should be fun.

I like all of the touches of the thin blue line. Looks good! I am trying to think of some way I can incorporate the tbl into my Jeep. Any ideas?

Looks awesome. Ive got plans to do mesh inserts and the barricade front bumper. Is the muffler that obvious? I'm picking up a white Willy Unlimited next week and wasn't planning on painting the muffler.

Honestly, i put on there all i could think, the line is plastidip. The rear bumper comes blacked out on the Willys (lucked out there) but if you have a black rig, you could do a stripe from front to back. just a thought.

What made you decide to go with the Willy's versus the Rubicon?

The Willys was nearly 10 grand cheaper, I didn't know too much about jeeps when I started this project 4 months ago. I didn't want a jeep that I would just lift and be done... plus it has cool stickers man.
