First order of business, ditch the rear seat.






Next up, install the Vector Offroad UFO's






Wrangler decal delete (J E E P decal to be installed later)







Don't say that you haven't been warned :thefinger:




Tuffy Console Insert




Surprise Straps




Some poser shots before installing the lift.

Day 2

Install Metal Cloak 2.5" lift (front). There was a mix up in the boxes and they sent 3.5" springs. I'll be swapping them out in a week or so and will post up pictures for comparison.

Day 4

Metal Cloak install (rear) I didn't get any pictures because I was working alone and forgot to take them.



Final result of the lift with 3.5" springs.

Thanksgiving Day

ACE Pro Series Rear Bumper install. I fabbed up some blanking plates for the light provisions because I'm waiting on the lights to come.

12/1/13

ACE Pro Series Front Bumper install. It took about 4 hours. I had to relocate the vacuum pump to under the hood, cut the frame horns and sway link protector bar. Nothing like hacking away at my brand new Jeep with a sawzll. :eek:

Next up, Warn M8000 winch is on order and will be here this week. I'll install that next weekend and the 2.5" springs if they are here. Then adjust all of the control arms.

I'm planning on ACE tubular fenders and rock rails but I'm thinking of waiting until doing them after the first of the year.

Damn that looks good, especially that color.
Curious to hear your feedback on the OME shocks and the MC coils after a little break-in time.

Nice. Way to hit the ground running. I like your build. Good mix of DD and weekend warrior. Do you have a manual transmission or automatic? How are the 4.10/3.6L with them 35’s?
