Picked her up last October
2013 JKU Gecko Green sport S

Day 1 on the lot, found it at a kia dealer so I was able to talk them down quite a bit of $$$ :bop:



After about a week or so, I realized how terrible the stock headlights were and picked up some truck lites which are probably the best lights i've owned





Then I got some rigid Duallys and a dual color 50"








Then the last couple weeks I picked up the tubular mopar side steps and found some color matched fenders I scooped up for $200

Spent $15 and made some home made foot pegs for when the doors come off...

Grabbed some Bike pegs off amazon
(2) 2" long 3/8" Eye Bolts
(2)1 1/2" long 3/8" Bolts
(2) 3/8" Nuts
(2) 3/8" wing nuts
(4) 1 1/2" Outer, 3/8" Inner Washers
(4) 1" Outer, 3/8" Inner rubber washers

Here are all the materials (wing nuts not pictured)



exploded view of the peg



Peg put together



Eye bolt will go up through the bottom door hinge and you can tighten a wing nut on top to hold it in place. I will get some pictures of them on the jeep uploaded this weekend.
I'll probably grab some little rubber washers so it doesn't scratch the door hinge as well.
