Thanks Jerry!
The sticker is an old logo for Burton Snowboards. If you lookup "Burton Mountain Sticker" you should be able to find it on Amazon or EBay. I just left off the Burton text and applied the mountain part of the sticker.

I have also seen something very similar used for Mt Rainier.

Any chance that you could post some level, unretouched pictures? Just so I can see clearly what the hood looks like, what the front bumper looks like, things like that? Boring, I know.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I'm going to reference this thread for my build lol. I gotta say that 6" lift looks great despite what I thought it might look like.

Wow, I haven't been on here in forever! I've made several changes since my last post, so here goes...

I worked for a while on a custom front skid but decided to scrap it. Just too big and bulky:


I installed a hidden winch behind the front bumper using Omelet's method. I added weld on shackle mounts and cut out the bumper for those as well. I coated everything including the fairlead (except for rope contact area) with Raptor Liner. While I was at it, I went ahead and sprayed my side view mirrors and Rola Rack.






After that I started on a headlight retrofit. I wanted a good mix of pure white, then intense yellow light when I needed it. I came up with a solution I wanted to achieve:



I picked up a set of Eagle Eye aftermarket 2008-10 projector headlaps. When they arrived I tossed the projectors and picked up a set of FX-R 3.0(infiniti replica) bi-xenon projectors with clear lenses, OSRAM 5000K CBI bulbs, and DENSO ballasts(OEM Lexus).
First step was to sand all the chrome off the housings:



Then I primed and painted to color match to the Jeep.



I ordered rattle can paint and clear gloss from automotivetouchup.com. Once again, I stole one of Omelet's great ideas and used the Jeep 7-slot grille logo for my turn signal covers. I just applied a vinyl sticker, painted over it, then carefully removed it to expose the orange reflector. I then sprayed clear over the entire thing:





After painting was complete I went on to mount the projecters, which was a total PITA. The projectors were huge and required me to cut out the factory mount and fabricate a mount plate and stand offs. I then used spacers to align them inside the housing.




These lights are paired with 3000k HID in my fogs and NOKYA yellow halogens in my high beam housing. Here is a chart of my results. Note my hid cutoff steps up to the right instead of a flat alignment. This is to help more with keeping them out of oncoming traffic. Its really hard to aim super bright HIDs that are about a foot higher off the ground than stock!



here are some more output shots:





for right now, to take care of the gap that using the 08-10 lights creates, I simply covered the lower portion in silver vinyl. I'll do something more permananent later.



I am SOOOO glad to have this mod over with! I have 50+ hours in it due to having to fabricate projector mounts.and align them. I'm sure glad I did it though, the output is stupid bright!

God that thing is so sexy. You make me want to bedline my black trim pieces now too. Also, I've been looking for those stripe decals forward of your front doors with the ORT bade. Where did you find them?

I got the badges made from a guy on another forum, i believe his email is rebadge@yahoo.com. For the stripes, I just measure what stripe thickness/gap I wanted and found someone local with a plotter to cut them out for me. Honestly though, with enough patience they could easily be cut by hand.
