awesome build! I also did black bedliner on my grill, didn't think to do the fenders. Great idea!!
Thanks, not only did I do the fenders but I started sanding the tailgate and rear corners to spray them as well. If it looks good I'm really thinking about doing the whole jeep. It makes for an easy fix for all the issues my Jeep body has, scratches, chips, rust bubbles you name it. I just don't think I can get a nice even color & smooth enough surface for a real paint job. Not to mention dirt getting into the paint, which isn't an issue with the bedliner either.
Jeeps looking good can't wait to see it sitting back on some tires again!
man that makes two of us. Although it will be a week or 2

I have access to a tire mounting & balancing machine so no rush. Plus I really want to see how it is going to look first and will do the photoshop thing with the wheels black. Really the long term goal is to run these for wheels.
So I changed gears on the tires and cancelled my order on the Discover SST tires and opted for a temporary fix. Picked up some Firestone Destination used tires on CL's for $40 that will work for now. Just more pressing issues to take care of first. With them mounted on the JK Moabs the jeep looks better, still alittle on the small side but that maybe because there bald
So as you can see in that last picture I have started to paint the heep. I decided to go with Rustoleum bed liner for the exterior. It has done a great job thus far and hid all the issues on the hood no problem.
More to come soon. Still looking for seats, have to roll monstaliner on the interior of the tub, wire up the defrost and rear wiper, put in new radiator, finish painting the exterior and installing lift (working on drilling out bolt holding on the front trackbar) wire in 03'-06' OEM radio, buy winch plate and XR8 winch etc etc........
removed the cowl prepped it, primed it and coated it with bed liner
Then masked off the side cowling sections and painted them
Also added some tinted turn signals and it makes it look pretty mean from the front.
plenty more to do, just got in my radio bezel so I can install the 03'-06' radio and get the interior looking better. Still need the switch panel and defrost trim piece in slate. Also have a center console coming (no sub) to install. And will be driving it by next weekend if only for a few days before tearing the interior out to monster line the tub.
Fit the 03'-06' radio and bezel and it looks great, just need a switch panel for the bottom.
Almost finished with the jeep, had to pickup a 9/16 drill bit today to install the JKS trackbar then I'm done. Backed it out of the garage so I could straighten up the garage and put my wife's mustang back in.
So I finally got the 9/16 hole drilled for the new bolt included in the JKS front track bar. have it mounted and according to my measurements the axle is centered. Also bolted up the new steering stabilizer and took it for a spin around the block. Alot of vibration even at very low speeds so back into the garage to put the transfer case drop kit on and the JKS 1.25" BL and 1" MML. I did finish the front brakes and put helper bleeders in the new calipers, made it a breeze to bleed the air out and a firm pedal. New problems are engine light came on (will take it to be scanned as soon as I finish the transfer case drop) and the A/C won't kick on. Compressor doesn't do anything but spins by hand. So now that it is 90 degrees and I put a hardtop on the A/C is acting up
Looking into building some sort of hoist/lift to store the hardtop and still haven't had any luck finding full doors for reasonable. I did order this today.
