Ok. So this this my thread. I bought the Jeep a month ago, paid cash. I think I got a great deal. It came with full hard doors, hard half doors, with soft skin uppers and the hard uppers with the sliding windows, hardtop, besttop bikini top, cargo cover and windjammer. It has a Flowmaster 40 that I didn't like at first but with time it grew on me. The jeep has never seen any mud or wheelin that I could tell. I went over the Jeep inside and out. The motor was spotless. So far everything is in great shape. I had a guy that runs a Meineke, who has done a ton of work on Jeeps personally, take a look at the mechanics and he took me that its in tip top shape. This is how it looked the day I bought it (sorry for some crappy cell phone pics);




The very first thing I did was rip the "milk jugs" off and take the fake chrome grill inserts out. Also the fog lights had some chrome covers on them. All that had to go.

This is the first time I took it "off road" not really just a railroad access road near my house;




The next thing I did was pull the fake plastic armor off and found this;


That will be addressed later in the thread.

I couldn't wait to take the doors off. So the first thing I ordered was the mirror relocation brackets. I got them off amazon for like $35. This was the first day with no doors;



That was pretty much all the easy stuff.

The first time it rained my carpets got wet. I took them out to dry and they never got put back in I started to learn what bedliner was. It changed my life I started researching bedliners and landed on U-Pol Raptor. I met up with fellow Jeeper 2006sport, I met him here. He let me come over and check out his. This stuff is great! So I ordered some. I'm not going to do a full write up, Its already been done perfectly flatlander757's Raptor Write-up

Here are my pics;












I will get some pics of the Jeep put back together whem the sun comes back out.

I never liked the look of the stock rear bumper.

I found a warn equipped with the tire carrier. It was at a junk yard on a YJ. I got it for $50. A steal imo. Here is us getting it off;



And here it is on my floor;



And on the Jeep;





I love the way it looks compared to stock

it was bound to happen...i just hate bed liner man...makes you look like you're gunna play in the mud and since most people don't i think its absolutely worthless...plus if the bottom of your jeep gets banged up and starts to rust over time, the floorpans will fallout without warning.

not instantly but obviously with time...saw it happen on a XJ and YJ.

Looks really good man, don't listen to that *******. The bedliner looks good, and will protect your floors, keep road noise down, and still keep it either cool or hot, depending on the season.

Looks great! Awesome find on that warn bumper man!!
Also, the bed liner was a smart move, I used the exact same product on my TJ, great stuff, real tough.
Any other plans you have?

Mike, dont worry about 442. He ALWAYS finds something bad in somebodys build. I'm surprised he hasnt bashed me for bedliner yet and he's commented in my thread.
