Grill covers paint black with touches of red... Kiddo mentioned it looks like I have a gunsight look in the middle


Changed out my sub panel for a base panel to get more room back


I also cleaned up some of my amplifier wiring with a waterproof MANL fuze holder

Oh come on! Too bad you don't live near. Me and another Amp'd have a trail run tomorrow !

Ordered a JCR front bumper the other day, excited for that to come in. Then I can take a break from big mods I think....

I've done some new mods recently.

I changed my cb out to a uniden 980ssb. I used the new quadratech full size cb mount. Also picked up a versamount 2 for the microphone.

Then I got and just installed the artec industries aluminum skid plate system.

I got a harken hoist but couldn't stand using the ratchet system. So I picked up an electric hoist. Now I can take my top on and off with ease.

Picked up a set of kickbak brackets for when my doors are off. I bought some mirrors a while back but hated the way bolted on. So I installed them on the kickbaks.

And last but not least I got the derlin hinge liners. They have been outstanding!

I'll try and get some new pictures up soon.

Are those black trim pieces a kit you can buy or what? I love the look of it:happyyes:
Sorry I just seen this.... The grill inserts,headlight trim, and the round black pieces under the door handles are available from rugged ridge. I got a great price on Amazon for them.

How do you like the Artec skids?
They are very awesome! A week ago me and a buddy did 5 trails in 3days. I wanted to show him the beauty of the Rockies up close. I purposely went over a few extra rough rock spots than I normally would and the skids held up great.

The installation took about 7hours total but I got interrupted quite a few times. But I'm amazed how light everything was and how well everything went together.

I picked the skids up in a package from northridge4x4 and got the HD crossmember included! I highly recommend the crossmember to make all the screws flush and just for the beef of the unit.
