Getting there:



Done:







I decided to paint the lower panels black this time. I think it looks much better and blends well with the black skirts:

One of the best looking WK's I've seen. Very nice.

Thanks!

Today I finally fixed my loose fender liner:



I did the Omelet mod to get some of the lack of turn radius after the SL install back:



I ended up taking 1/4" off. I get a little rub at full lock but I can turn on a dime now! Well it feels like it at least:



Rebadge sent over some new center cap emblems in the correct size (left wrong size, right one is new):



While I had the caps off I moded the old style AEV caps to accept the spring clip from the new style ones because I've always felt the old ones didn't feel too secure on the wheel. Left: Old style (accepts emblem), Middle: moded, Right new molded style.



I just made a quick pass with the dremel to make the channel:





Did a little buffing on the fender and installed some ORT-8 emblems from rebadge:







And I finally installed my SL Ver. 2 lower control arms and got rid of the drop brackets. Thanks again Omelet! And why did I not invest in air tools before?





Then I Went for a drive in the beautiful weather (well technically I did this before the drop brackets as you can see)!





Now I just need to find some time to instal my CB, ARB OBA system, Omelet style rock lights, and fab some rock rails... Unfortunately that will all come after deployment, hopefully just in time for EJS '14!

Great Thread! Where do you get the SL Ver. 2 lower control arms? Are you selling the drop down brackets?

One the classiest vehicles on this forum. I no longer own a Jeep (4Runner now), but i'll always check up on this thread as you have a gem of a vehicle. Excellent work!

Can't say I agree with removing the winch, but it looks amazing!

Dude Rob, I don't even know you had a build thread on this forum! I will have to add it to the WK/XK list so everyone else can find it too. Glad to see you were able to get those LCAs in before you left. I can't wait until you get back so we can watch this beauty continue!

yae on the 5.9L vents, although I would put them above the high beam lights line (looking to the picture you put, to the right)

Lots of new stuff!
PIAA LED fog lights:



They are a little small for the opening, but I'm liking it more and more. I may build a filler panel someday.



I painted the rear diff guard black to blend in a little better and switched to black D-rings:



Parts ready to go on:



Getting started:



Bilteisn 5100's:



I decided to add 1" overall (this plus the 4" SL = 5"). I chose the 1.5" lift option and got rid of my rustys .5" spacers that I had previously installed:



Front end done!



This picture shows how far out on the JBA arm I installed the auto-leveling mount for the factory HIDs. I did this to prevent binding at full suspension droop. It seems to be working just fine out there and only required minor re-aiming:



To add 1" to the rear I started with some rustys spacers and cut them down:



Complete:



And finally the much needed solution to the tire not fitting underneath! A custom Detours Knucklebone tire carrier. I somehow managed to not get a picture before installation. Oh well:









The license plate solution is just a AEV license plate relocation bracket installed into the rear bumper trim. Unfortunately it sets off the backup sensors... I may try reaiming them a little bit eventually:



I also have an AEV third brake light that fits through the top wheel opening as its hard to see the brake light now for vehicles low to the ground. I had to redrill the wheel mount (this also allowed me to weld in the wheel bolts so I can just lift the tire into place and bolt up without hassle) as the knucklebone put the inline hole downward.





This is really just a temporary solution. Eventually I'd like to build my own swing away integrated into the rear fascia. But this will more than do for the time being until I have time to design something more substantial.

Also, not really pictured, are the 4xGuard rock rails. I love these things and think they are plenty stout. I may add an additional bar outboard of them similar to the armadillo rails someday.

Looking awesome Rob! And because I wasn't itching to work on mine as it was, you had to go and make it worse! . So what's next for that beauty?

Thanks! I have some small projects here ready to be installed. Nothing major yet. The next big thing will be a winch and 35's (Oh how I regret going 34's). But first a trip to Colorado and Moab next week When do you get back? I've been dying to wheel in Cali sometime before I move away from the west coast!
