I would have, but the cost plus shipping would end up about double and a bit (if not more) than what I am going with. I got the RC kit for $140 delivered to my door, and the struts and shocks together are like $250 ish. I could even probably get a few more years out of what I have (factory OEM ones still in there).

This WK is a family hauler and trailer puller... it will see limited "Offroad" use, other than gravel roads and the odd FSR. I have a lifted XJ for the other stuff, and it is 99% GTG!

Today I picked up my custom sub box. 10" kicker with a 1.8cu foot sealed box and the other half of the box houses the amp, cap and wiring.



tops are not finish sealed on yet, which is why they look cockeyed.

Just finished swapping out the stock grille for an expanded metal mesh and plastidipping it.






Now to just fix the electrical problems with it..

Yours looks really good. However, I like the chrome grille, just not the black plastic fins that protrude from them. I wonder if I could find either stainless steel expanded metal, or even brushed aluminum to fill in the gaps.

You could use chrome spray paint or go even as far as having it dipped. Or you can just spray clear coat over the raw expanded metal and leave it like that.

I clear coated over the raw metal and it didn't last through the winter without rusting. I plastidipped it for now to cover it up but in the summer, I will get it powder coated.

Got some new garage doors and took the opportunity to build a loft with pull down stairs so I could clean the joint up. Now I can tuck both my girls away at night. (The 8 yo truck and 45 yo car get the indoor parking while the 2013 sits outside.) Lol

Removed the Stock exhaust and installed a Gibson 3" Cat-Back exhaust. Now she sounds like a Hemi should. Might have to have someone take a look at my install though, it's really loud in the cab now. Just want to make sure I got it all together right and I don't have any leaks anywhere.

Yes sir! It was indeed. Sorry you missed it, but keep an eye on the postings from Kolak. I think he said they might be doing something this summer.
