ItsMeKO3's Build Thread

Bought my Jeep back in March 2011. Haven't done a lot of major changes to it, but a few small things to make it my own.

Day 1 - First pics when I got it home.



First few things I did was tint the front windows, add the rain guards, put on the mini antenna, and trim the front air dam.




My brother in law who sold me the Jeep hooked me up with a set of 4 Bridgestone Dueler AT's on XK wheels. I didn't take any pictures of them before I plasti dipped the wheels, but this is how they came out. He was also able to snag me a set of cross rails from a Jeep they were sending to the auction. I went ahead and added 2 fork mount bike racks after I put these on.




^^About a week later my fairing for the roof rack came in.





Came to a standstill at this point for a little while. I plasti dipped my emblems and plates frames (Don't have any good pics of this.) Didn't do much else accept take a lot of pictures. Here's a couple of my favorite pics.



The last couple weeks I've been pretty "inspired" by posts and things I've seen on the forums. I pulled my taillights and did "Jager's" taillight mod that I saw on JF.




From there I bought some supplies at Lowes and revamped my grill using some Gutter Guard.



That went well so I went out and played around with the lower opening and managed to make one for that spot. I'm in the market for tow hooks, so if I buy some I may have to pull the bottom grill out or at least modify it to fit the hooks. But for now, I like it.

I had also been contemplating on picking up a set of Stillen Headlight Covers, but wasn't sure I wanted to drop $100 on them. I saw a forum on JG and decided to give it a shot. I used plasti dip on the outside of the lens to give my lights the "Stillen" look lol. Pretty happy how it came out.




And thats about all I've done. This is how she looks today.



*UPDATE* 9/24/11
Installed my 3157 chrome turn bulbs to get rid of the orange look. Love the way it looks now.

Also had my JBA Spacers installed to level out the front.

You guys will probably notice I've only done a lot of small inexpensive mods. I don't have the $ to turn mine into the beastly machines you guys have lol. I'm pretty happy with the way its come out. And definitely happy with the overall Jeep. I'm sure there will be many other things I do as the time comes. Thanks for checking out my build. Feel free to make comments - good or bad lol

*I just got my 1/2 leveling kit for the front from JBA in today. Planning on putting it in this weekend. I'll be sure to add those pics after I do.

Jeep looks great! I'm a big fan of your trimmed air dam. Looks very clean.

*Update* 10/22

Today I mounted and installed my Hella 500ff's behind the grille. I also mounted my stock fogs and installed my front and rear tow hooks (No pics of the hooks yet).
