Long thread, lots and lots of work, if there weren't 1000 miles between us I'd ask if you/your fam would want to come to a wrench party!

Saw the last pic - Semper Fi, Devil Dog!

Looking forward to more action shots in the mud and crawling!

Finally wrapped up paint and reassembling everything this weekend. Very happy with how it looks. Rolled on monstaliner used their "lady in red" color. Hard to tell from the pics but I wrapped my step bars with 3M non skid. Awesome product. The deltas at night are amazing too. No more having to use my brights all the time. I will post more pics this evening.

Got the hi-lift jack on today. Picked it up from the local tractor supply. $60. Used two old factory tire carrier stops, cut to about 2", welded on the hood hinges with a stud through the brace. Good enough for me. On to more LEDs.

Made a quick and easy custom mount to keep my sway bar out of the way when it is disconnected.

Finished wiring up the interior lights. Previous owner did them under the dash. I continued them down each side and up the fender wells. I'm pleased with the out come. Not too bright in person. Purchased a 5 meter roll from amazon for $13. Still have some left over for random projects. Next up is the over head console, tire carrier, and front bumper

Also, swapped out sound bar speakers for Polk 651s and put a new mtx slim mount sub behind the rear seat. I highly recommend both. You can't explore the trails without tunes!
