"Jade" Customization/Build Thread

So, I think it's about time to start working on a build thread, will probably start an interior customization thread at a later date. Anyway, Here we go!


This is the oldest image I can find, before she got the custom door guards, and before I mangled my brush guard.

After the accident, when I removed the mangled brush guard and replaced the off-road lights.

You can see the sun-guard strip on the front, the seat cover, and you can -almost- make out the chrome, skull-shaped door guards on the side.

And threw a rack up top to relocate the spare tire. Getting a 2" suspension spacer lift next week, as well as a new steering stabilizer.

What shocks did you go with for the spacer?

Looks good, green is the best color.

It was a package with the four shocks and spacers from Zone Off-Road.

Those are just some cheap ones I got at Harbor Freight. If there isn't one near you, you can order online. They were like $12.50 or so. If you're looking for high quality though, Quadratec just started advertising some KCs about the same size that have interchangeable lenses for off-road, and two types of fogs. They're like $120.
