March 1, 2013:
Its been over a month since my last update. So many things have changed since my last update. The jeep is now being sponsored by Ace Off Road, I have already received the rock rails, the bumpers and fenders should be arriving in the coming weeks. I am going to try to document the install with photos and video. I will post photos of the installed rock rails later today. They work great as a step to get in and out of the jeep.

Why are you being sponsored?

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Ace has a sponsorship program and I filled out an application and got accepted!

Nothing too extreme yet, just some easy wheeling and lots of club meetings

Doorless!


I talked to ACE last week and the bumpers and tire carrier should arrive soon. I also ordered a cargo top from Off Road Heros, the top should be here early May. The wait is KILLING me!

My front bumper from ACE arrived last week! The install was a breeze, I even created instructions for ACE on how to relocate the Vacuum canister using the factory mounting point. If anybody would like a copy of the instructions just PM me on the forum.
