This Update is out of order but I have been working on the jeep and have to finish a bunch more and film more videos so this is kind of a sneak peak at how the jeep is coming along. So far I have Black rock defender 905 wheels (discontinued) 35s Goodyear MTR, Spray bedlined Metalcloak Overline fenders and that's all that is installed so far. Video is just me playing around with the new gopro drone I got.

Don't mind the zip tied stock turn signals in this pic. I have the LED ones just was eager to drive it with the 35s on lol

Really nice build, man. Reminds me a lot of mine - I'm essentially where you are now without the metalcloak armor.

How does the Jeep drive with 35's? I have 33"s with 3.73 gears and am debating 25's

Drives great for me. Still has plenty of acceleration even on 35s. Here is a video of some accelerations with the 35s to get an idea on how it is with 3.73 and 35s

Hey guys haven't been able to do a whole lot to the jeep lately, but made a few pov videos if you guys like watching those kind

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FN_dqcM439A

Also bought some tinted windows for the soft top. I was painting the rest of my fenders to get ready to put on the jeep but it started to rain today so that got pushed back a little. Should have everything done before it gets to cold here. Also need to undercoat the jeep so I can keep it rust free during the winter

$50 Half Doors are done. Still have to redo the drivers side but wanted to get it sealed up for winter. Also got a set of upper door skins for the half doors as well.
