"Project Camo" Build Revealed

So after being part of this forum for several months, reading all the post, asking a lot of questions and getting good advice, I'm ready to reveal my build. My Jeep started out as a beaten, rusted 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited that I Repo'd and purchased direct from the dealer for $1500.00 I started with repairing the rusted real quarter panel and dents. I fixed the broken window actuator, replaced all fluids. The oil pan was so rusted that oil was seeping thru so I replaced that. I also replaced the Transmission pan and filters as well. I replaced both rear Axle seals because of a leaking issue on one, brake pads and E-Brake pads, replaced warped front roters. I did a full Camo Wrap on the unit and used Raptor bed liner on the rest. Switched out the headlights with Larado lights and added a Rola roof rack and CB. Last but not least I installed a 3" OME lift with new Bilstein Shocks and Moog TRE. The only thing left that I want to add are new rims and tires, to be coming soon. Thanks to all for your help in making this project sucessful, Thanks to Nick (A.K.A. Kolak) for all your wisdom and all the help with all the parts I purchased. All labor was performed by myslef with the help of my wife when needed.

That is going to look real nice when you get the new rims and tires.

Wow! That Dub-J looks fantastic! I've often thought about doing the same thing to my Suburban. Where did you get the wrap/bedliner?
Nice job man.

Love the wrap...should have done the hood though IMO. Have been thinking about a full wrap for a while as I have someone who will do it just for the cost of the materials. Been trying to thing of something original though
... thats the hard part.

Good job though!
