Nice start! I dig they Metal Cloak fender's. I also like where you mounted the Viar tank, might have to steal that idea as space is at a premium in my 2 door.

2013 JKR - with one of everything.

Nice looking Jeep.

Looking good.

I would give some serious consideration to doing a different steering stabilizer set up that is moved out of harms way. That double RC deal is a rock magnet.

Your jeep was identical to mine when new. Any idea why we had sports with the Sahara 18s on them?
