2010 2Door Sport : Hey at least it's not 100% stock

Purchased my Wrangler back in 2011 with 12,xxx miles. Original owners where a retired couple who just didn't end up liking the "Jeep" noise. Got lucky on it and paid below blue book value. Not going to be anything mind blowing happening here, just a stock-but-not route.

1. Completed Parts Installs (going off my not so great memory for exact timeline)

Daystar Dashpad
Daystar Hood Wranglers
Rugged Ridge Cowl covers
B&M Transmission Cooler w/ Mesh Protection
K&N DropIn Replacement Filter
17" Moabs on 285/70 Yokohama Geolanders
Mopar Slush Mats
Mopar Splash Guards
Flowmaster Delta 40 (just to have a little grunt)
IPF H4 Headlights
IPF968 Aux Lights on FrontRunner Windshield Mounts
HiperWhite Reverse Light
Sony CD Player and Alpine Type-S replacement speakers
2014 Wrangler Turn Signals (Clear)
SurpriseStraps Paracord Grab Handles
Optima RedTop
Mopar Tubular Side Steps Black
EvoMfg HD Level Kit with Bilstein 5100's
Spidertraxx Wheel Spacers
GenRight Evap Skid
Thule SpareMe 963 Bike Rack

This is what it looked like upon purchase (YES, it was a prime candidate for the Mall Crawler Association of America)

2" lift is planned for early next year. Those guards help the nasty-nasty to stay off the Yeep, and I'm king of lazy's on cleaning

Haha that's true. It'd be nice to have those up here to keep the road salt off the windows so I can see...

Picture down in the Rio Grande Village in Big Bend. Hit up the natural spring while we where there.



Here is the river, and that's Mexico on the other side with some wild horses grazing



Pic from an abandoned building in Marathon, TX (town of big Bend)

Starting on my bolt in trailer lights this weekend. Our body shop had an extra hood laying around, so I traced my taillights on the hood and cut them out. Not perfect but this is just a trial fit. Ordered some Optronics trailer brake lights which arrived today.

REASON FOR THIS : Nobody has a bolt in flush mount taillight. I will be using the inner mounting holes, and drilling into the body for the outer screws. If I ever go back to factory the outer drilled holes will be covered by the OEM tail light bracket.

Interested to see how this turns out. I hate the military style flush lights.
