so I've been slacking on the build thread...

awhile back I added a pair of KC lights behind the grille...then I added the full Billet Technology under hood kit, oil catch can, and throttle body cover for some engine bay bling...then I added a set of 255/75 BFG muds on a more graphite looking set of moabs that are darker than the more common moabs

Very nice bud! Looks like my engine compartment only you have a couple pieces I'm missing. Looks great with the Volant and Tayler shorties too

Looks awesome!

Haha, my engine bay is going to look identical on Monday. My Volant is coming in.

How did you mount your catch can? The black fittings look so much better.

Thanks guys! I got a small angle bracket and a straight piece that were already black from a local true value hardware store. I think they are made for welding or something, all I knew was that they were already nicely painted brackets haha. I looked for similar brackets for my KC lights at Lowes and home depot and neither had anything like it...I can take a pic of the bracket for ya if you want

Thanks!

Is there a product name or brand? I looked at lowes and Home Depot and found nothing so I gave up. Mine is mounted with zip ties, currently, haha.

The wk is looking awesome!! Are you still using the Bora spacers? How do you like them? I can tell by the pics on their site that they are wheel centric, are they hub centric too? Any pros/ cons compared to a set of spidertrax's?

Thanks! Yea I am still using the Bora spacers and they are hub centric as well. They are great and I was only looking for an inch spacer and since Spidertrax doesn't make them I went with Bora. I am considering going to 1.5" Spidertrax, but not sure yet

I would be interested in buying your Bora spacers off of you if you decide to switch to Spidertrax. Great looking Jeep, by the way! I'm basically doing everything you did before you lifted, with the same tire size.

Yeah I agree. I were lifting 2-3 inches, I'd probably go with 1.5" spacers but 1" is good for near stock height. Shoot me a PM if you ever decide to sell them, they're the exact ones I was planning on getting in a few months.
