Excellent thread, I started building my WK almost 2 years ago and have done most of the same basic mods. You have an amazing talent for creative ideas. My next upgrade will be a hidden winch, which is how I first stumbled onto your build. Thanks.

I've had mine for about 4 years now, and have recently been wanting to make it more off-road capable (ORT-Fun enhanced).
Yes, yes, definitely spent the day on work stuff! I'm glad you enjoyed it so much and got some good ideas for future mods. That is what this group is all about!

Well I did take them to get them mounted only to find out that one of the four tires had a slice in the side wall I was a little pissed and wanted to go give the seller a piece of my mind, but refrained. I have since been on the hunt for at least one but preferably two more used 37" KM2s to complete the set. Unfortunately they are a little difficult to find.

Well they are still sitting in the garage and I haven't forgot about them, but they aren't high on the priority list right about now. I'll get to them eventually!

Yep! I got a really good deal on it a while back when TL was trying to break into the Jeep world and needed some nice Jeeps to mount their lights on


So I've been quite busy the past month and really haven't had a whole lot of time for Bison upgrade, BUT FEAR NOT!!! They are coming....

Here are some shots from the past couple month that I never posted.

Trying to mount the 37s. The last pic I'm sitting on the 295s with the 37s rolled in front of them.








Here's a couple while spending some time out by the lake. I'll tell you what, these SoCal winter are brutal






And a couple beach side shots.






During Christmas My Dad and I got out and did some easy scenic wheeling outside of Idyllwild.

This is a bit far from you, but seems pretty cheap.

The listing is gone, but that far wasn't really an option anyway. Thanks for looking out though

Well last I spoke to the guy who has it, the bumper should be on it's way out soon.

So the other day the engine light came on while we were sitting in the In-N-Out drive through. I got home and pulled the code which was P0032 (O2 Sensor 1/1 Heater Circuit High). I ended up finding a Bosch at Auto Zone for $25 and swapped it in. I'd prefer OEM but this was easier to get and half the price. I might order a Mopar one off Amazon to have on hand for next time. I had to disconnect the battery before it would run properly again, but now we are back in business!






On another note I should be getting my ARB in the next few days
