"Project Vader" Begins - My WK.

Well...the all-black, rugged, don't-take-no-crap, "Darth Vader" look has started for my WK.

Installed black taillight guards, a black grille guard, and PIAA 540 series Xtreme White lamps...

I didn't have time to wash/detail before it got dark, so it's a little dirty, but here are some pictures:

















A lift, wheels, tires, etc to come...

The more I look at this WK the more I like it. I couldn't get one until the 4" lift is out and on, but very cool none the less. I can't sell my 94 now though, I want to keep a rare manual ZJ.

Nice looking WK, however

I don't think anything can pull off the Darth Vader thing like one of these

Yes these things are hideous, but you have to admit, in black, they really do look like Darth Vader.

Awesome looking WK! what lift were you thinking about putting on it? you should get a set of black steelies for offroad use, ithink that would look really cool.

That's a nice looking WK. And while I appreciate the big ticket items you got, I really liked the front license plate! Where did you get that?
