The Grey Goat Grows Up

I saw the AEV Mojave WK which led me to this forum and to (mainly) Omelet's build thread along with a number of others. If anyone sees something familiar, thanks up front . I have to admit that I will be umm "heavily borrowing" his ideas for my own build. I just finished ordering a 4" AEV/SL kit from Nick at Kolak Performance who was very helpful and informative! I added in 6" springs from JBA and am debating whether to go with a lift from Rusty's or a modified OME for the front end. Gibson 3" exhaust on the way as well. Waiting to hear back about the TB from Fastman. Still undecided on either 35X12.50R17 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R 's or 315/70R17 Duratracs mounted on AEV Pintlers.

Future mods going in this summer in no particular order;

20" LED Light Bar

40" LED Light Bar


WK/XK 5-Switch Panel



ARB Twin Air Compressor



JBA WK/XK Front Sway Bar Disconnects

JBA Rear sliders

JBA UCA's

4XGuard Matrix and skids

Cobra 75WXST 40-Channel CB (mounted behind dash)

Mobile HAM radio (mounted in small cubby in center console)

Antenna Mounts

4' firestick antenna

Manifold mod (still looking at what's available and won't break the bank)

Fastman TB

Volant Cold Air Intake

Warn Winch w/ synthetic line ( mounted behind bumper ala Omelet)

Steel Armadillo Super Sliders

Steel Armadillo Rear Differential Cover (12 bolt)

Steel Armadillo Secure Console

Gobi Stealth Roof Rack

If you are going for the WK AEV Pintlers, don't wait to order. They are on sale as they supposedly, will be discontinuing them.

Oh, sorry, I'm on a very slow Internet, so your picture didn't download. Well done on the Pintlers

I've owned Cobra CBs previously and really liked them but I don't have experience with this model. I'll install it as soon as the antenna gets in and write up how it performs :-)



Thank you kind sir.
