Those are NICE. Great work John. When I get my armor all figured out you will be getting some paint work. This thing really looks incredible.

Final steps before a test drive.

Build battery relocation bracket
Finish brake system and bleed.
Finish steering sector shaft
Build cage and seat mounts
Clock and install transfercase
Shorten rear DS to 36"
Build a fuel filler neck
Build AW4 trans harness
Build tail light harness and trailer harness.
If I get all that I can atleast drive it around under its own power.

List after test drive.

Install stereo system and amp racks
Paint cage and reinstall
Build front and rear inner fenders
Spray black bedliner on inner fenders
Finish spare tire mount
Cage tie ins
Paint flares and repaint bed

Little projects for Fall.

Led lights
Grill hoop and winch guard
Rear cage section in bed
Fire extinguisher mounts inside and out
Heated seat pads in Mastercrafts

I am sure I missed something, but it looks like I got everything.

I honestly think it would look better if you just did an in cab cage like how chris durhams is. It really defines the truck bed from the jeep.

Coming along nice John

If anything. I think a troop cage like this would look sweeeeet. But it does also look nice and clean as is



Also. Anytime you need those led light bars. I have them in stock right now

How are you keeping your hood down? I looked back at one of your previous pics and noticed that you had no pins or straps...

Does a company make some that are hidden inside the grill or something? I feel like I'm missing something

The magic and will-power this Jeep has would be able to do it as well

I have been working on an inside latch like a car has. If I cannot get it to work I have factory hardware.

Got the passenger side flare fully primed with 2K primer yesterday. Also finished welding and grinding down the welds on the driver side last night. To sick to even move at the moment. Maybe I can get back at it in a few days.
