This is my first jeep build thread because this is my first jeep.
2014 Billet JKU Sport that I got about a year ago.
As the thread name says the jeep is Billet and will have black everything else.
After studying the forms for some 6 or 8 months I finally figured out what I wanted and started saving up for the first steps.
I do not have any pictures of the jeep from its early days but you all know what the stock ones look like. Here is the earliest picture I have.

The mods list isn't long but is just what I need.
Warn Elite front bumper
Warn Elite rear bumper with tire carrier
Warn Zeon 10s winch
Ace fab fairlead
Antenna X shorty antenna
Teraflex 2.5 lift
Mickey Thompson Classic Baja 17x9
Hankook dynapro RT03 315/70/17
Superchips 3570 Flashcal programmer
Ace Rear Cargo Basket
And im sure more as we go along.

The first install was the antenna to get rid of the ridiculously long stock one.

After that I went ahead with the Warn Elite front bumper.
Before it arrived I read a lot of install threads and read all the problems. I was pleased when it arrived because the instructions had been updated to solve those install difficulties.

First I took off the old

Then cut the vaccine bracket off to accommodate the new one.

I loosely fit the bumper on to make sure everything was right

Then bolted it on to tighten up the gaps and make sure there were no clearance problem.
Abd everything for perfectly.

Then I got the factory fogs back on and they mounted great in the holes.

Finally I painted the bolt heads black so that they wouldn't be so notable and next up is the d rings that should have already gotten but I didn't think about it until after the winch arrived.

Look for more updates to come and let me know if you have any questions.

Finally while I was working on the jeep I decided to remove the rear headrest so that I would be able to see out the rear window when I get the new tires

The bracket holding them on and all the tools needed to take it off

Next step is new wheels and tires to make it worth it.

Made a custom mount for a Hi Lift underneath

I did add some rubber spacers between the basket and Hi Lift to avoid any movement vertically
I also added an axe on the right and a machete on the left for now
