The blue is gonna look good. It looks close to the same color that Hendrix is painting his Jeep truck project. When it's done you should post a picture of it with the Abu Dhabi Tower in the background.

Handrixs' project is Mega cool !

There will be a difference between the two cars in the Sun.

I will post loads of pictures once the car is done. But It will be very hard to get any decent pictures outdoors because of the harsh summer weather..

LEWL !

I can't wait to see it finished my self!

I have to decide few things first.

1) Should I replace the front (and possibly the rear) with Mopar Rock Crawler Bumper or should I keep the Warn Bumpers?

2) should I bedline the tube or should carpet it ?

3) Should I paint the wheels, keep them as is, or replace them?

lots of questions that are waiting to be answered..

I would keep the parts that you already have so that you have more money to put into the parts that you need.

Any parts I remove from this project will go to the Buggy project.

Bumpers are not that important at this point and I will be keeping them for some time.

The floor work is important. I need to reduce the noise and heat somehow.

I'm also re-searching the options I have for the control arms and steering. Currie JJ Set looks good and that might be my choice in the end. Same goes for the Steering.

I'm also thinking about the Hydro assest. I don't think I need it now. But If my current system broke, should I upgrade or just buy another stock unit?

So here is today's updates:








Almost all the Rust points have been repaired/covered.

The body is almost ready for painting. I'm expecting this to be done tomorrow.
