Thank you. Im not going to get one most likey, check this set out though, I think they are great for military themed jeep.

I talked to the guy about painting mine but he actually recommended going to same artist who did my other work so all the art styles will match. Talked to guy that did the airbrushed hog on my center console and he said hed do the grill and gas door for 100 included clearing and buffing it. Im definatly doing the gas door as think a airbrushed mural would be better than the 3d printed one i currently have.

On the grill im truly undecided. I do think the oem style grill would be nice.

Hi Justin,

Your Wrangler just keeps looking better, every time that I see it. It is a one of a kind show piece..just Awesome..

Your PICs look great, but since I have seen it in person, no pics does it justice. You should be proud of it..

I know that our Summer heat has finally moving in. As somebody has already mentioned. You have a lot of air flow CFM being blocked to your Radiator core. I suggest that you keep a eye on your digital coolant temperature.

I am up at our cabin. So far the temps up here on the Rim, are nice and cool..

Take care of that beauty and stay safe! @Justin-az

Bill

Hello Mr. Bill.

Its not nice and cool here in Cave Creek but the pool feels refreshing in this heat. Ive been watching the Jeep temperature as was worried the grill insert would block airflow but so far no problems. I think the hood vents help with it too.

Going to take Hog Wild to show in morning. I hope it goes well.

Also, have some crazy ideas for upgrades

1. Muraled gas door
2. Muraled grill
3. Murals in door jams and tailgate jam
4. Some glass etching on all windows
5. Powder coat Dv8 tire carrier inserts in red
6. Paint hood vents red for contrast
7. Custom inner fenders with hog wild logo
8. Lift little higher, may just use pucks ?
9. Fox resivour adjustable shocks
10. Fox Ats stabelizer
11. Custom differential covers with hog logo
12. Powder coat few parts

From Carolina Metal Masters ( i have some of their stuff and its absolutely phenomenal and adds a new dimension to our interior)

Knuckle grabbers ( ask for cerakote red to match your paint scheme) https://www.carolinametalmasters.com...13885732094013

Grab bar (ask for cerakote red to match your paint scheme and have them custom engrave "Hog Wild" https://www.carolinametalmasters.com...13936179445821

They are having trouble with their powder coater. I ordered a candy red grab handle and winch fairlead from them and they refunded me because they outsource powdercoating and guy did a bad job that they said was unacceptable. They said they are going to start powdercoating in house and I plan to reorder when that happens. I already have the brass knuckle grab bars front and rear, they draw allot of attention.

Decided to retire the Hog Wild JK from big shows, still going to upgrade it some and maybe enter some small shows but I think no more big shows. The Hog had a good run but time to move on and start on something new. Not sure what yet but got some ideas.

I have to say while note every bit is my liking (taste) I really have to admit you have done a bang up job with your Jeep and I wish I had the funding to do some of the stuff you have done, very cool looking! I love how it just looks so clean and the thought that was put into it!

The hoods made by Dv8 offroad, they are around 500 shipped and made of stamped metal, the vents are really functional. You can get them from most the forum vendors, i think i got mine from liftkits4less on thier ebay auctions.

They come ready to paint, the hoods are like a matte black color when they arrive. A body shop painted it for like 200. Some shops wanted allot more but tripple j paint shop in phoenix charged like 600 for the hood, grill, engine cover and the fenders

This last post is the saddest. Not my style, but all that work and now it’s done so on to the next. I can’t fathom having that kind of money to waste. If you’re trying to get your money back sell a lot of the mods you did separately.
