Sure is nice. Can you take a shot along the side so I can see exactly how much your tires stick out. I really like your set up and the choices you are making on your mods. I also see you are in Yucaipa, would you mind sharing who you are going to have install your bumper and winch, I am local and want that mod.

Also as others have mentioned, thank you for your services.

The build is coming along nicely. I'm happy I was able to spend my first christmas with my wife and not deployed. It does suck but the money is really nice!! I'm living my wife's WK2 build dreams through yours at the moment. Since the priority is my 77' J10..

Keep it coming.

Here your side shots of the rig, they stick out just a bit which is how I wanted them ( you can see my fiancÚ patriot I got her in the background haha)

As for the winch and bumper install I'll be putting that in myself. I originally intended to install everything myself but I won't be in Cali for a few months so I opted to have a shop do the majority of the work. Idk about the OC but in Yucaipa there's an off road shop that will do all the mods but it's a bit pricey. I was quoted 1300 for the lift and bumper with winch put on but here's their website if you'd like. If you ever did end up getting one and needed help if be glad to help you put it in but it would have to wait until mid April when I get back.

another picture showing a full side view. tint looks a little brighter due to the sunlight beaming directly on the car. That should help when me out since 20% isn't quite legal in California haha

Looks great, I think it would look even better if you had your chrome trimming around the windows painted black. Same goes for the chrome pieces in the front.
I know it can be done because my body shop did my chrome window trim on my BMW, real cheap too. $100
