You should consider building Jeeps for a living. You do great work and work fast especially if that's all you had to do all day long . lol once again great work.

Here we go guys. I had a couple cars to put back together this morning. But about 11 I went at it with the Jeep.

Dash is 90% I will have to remove it partially to build the cage later.





Installed the Dash speakers. 5 1/4 JL audio.



Not fun, But routed the tail light harness through the tub.



Got the windows back from the tint shop.



Worked on the Outboard kit in the rear. Driver side is tacked and ready to be welded fully once I get the Jeep back home. The Passenger side is ready to tack in the morning after I build up the Doors.






Built the lower shock mounts with built in skid. I may have to change these later but I hope not. I like the way they tuck up out of the way. I have 4.5 inches of up travel right now. I can raise the Jeep to get more. But, I want to instal the rear leaf pack before I finalize anything.

Looking good. You should paint the center dash piece blue to match the exterior.

If the guys from Bantam, Willys, and Ford who designed and built the first jeeps could see this I think they'd be floored.

I am too. I'll get whiplash so bad if I ever see it going down the road.

Doors are built. Waiting on the key and lock guy to re-key the lock cylinders.

The sides are 35% which is legal in TN. The front and back glasses are custom cut Carbon tinted glass. Guessing around 40% I am getting the back tinted and additional 35%.

Update: the outboard kit is finished till I get home to my 220v mig. The rear springs are done on the passengerside, working on the driverside now. Going to finish the back section of the frame TODAY.
