lebaron vents got shipped to me today, should have them by the weekend. Also, i'm trading one of my bikes for a complete TJ Rubi Front 44 without the locker since i decided on an ARB for the front. Now i just need a rear 44. (hint hint hotrod hooligan!) and i will be ordering ORO U-Turn Steering soon as well as the detours rear bumper.


busy busy busy. i really need to get a different DD for all this work i'm going to be doing!

ok pictures of the install. enjoy

before pic


vents showed up silver and dirty, here they are cleaned up.


black! i had left over krylon fusion from doing my endcaps.


then the rain decided to show up after i had waited for the vents to dry.


storm blew by quick, snapped a pic of lightning shooting by a rainbow. the picture does not do it justice, i dont know how i even caught it.


still a fear of more thunderstorms and not wanted to chance working outside, relocated to my buddies garage since i dont have one.




had to grind the hell out of the edges since i cut wayy too small, but better to cut too little than too much right?
