So cute

As soon as it hit my driveway I got the urge to do some stuff to it. I wonder why?

Started off by painting the stock steelies Gunmetal and installing the Duratracs from my previous WJ. Decent DD setup. Alos made my own quick discos with clevis pins.

Built my Hi-Lift Hood Mount

Got tired of looking at it, being so small with such massive plastic pieces... so I busted out the sawsall (at about 3000km on the clock at this point)

Always good to have a shovel handy! This mod was more to try my first weld than anything really...

Bumper is sold,just not the one I thought I was selling. He didn't like the fact it had no fog light mounts (even though the ad clearly showed it had none), so I showed him ^that^ one in the gas station parking lot. Next thing you know I'm ripping it off my Jeep to sell it to him haha!

Got home and started working on the other one to get some fog lights in there, drying from bedliner as I type this, then it goes back up for sale.

Also ordered some 15x8" steelies and AEV geometry brackets. Now all I need is some 35's and warm weather to install everything.
Not really an update, going snow wheeling this Sunday so stay tuned for pics!
The Duratracs are 245/75/16, might even be 30" idk. Swapped em from my WJ when I traded it in. Havent got stuck with them yet *knock on wood*.
