Its pretty easy to do just need some self tap screws and some 700 series tp rubber wall base. Bought it at home depo for work and just used what was left of it. It might look getto to some but i like.
Looks great, I'm really interested into trying this out. Can you provide some more pictures of it and the entire Jeep, in different angles, to see what it would look like as a whole. This would certainly help with rock chips with those of wider tires.

Wonder if the PVC Vinyl wall base would work too?

Changed a Brake light bulb bit surprised to find out, would have thought I would get a Lamp Failure message (was a nice feature on my ZJ)

Rattle canned bed liner along the lower door sills that were covered before I added the rock sliders and redid all the kick plates too.

took it to the shop

posted on here earlier, got no feedback, had to take her to the dealership.....turns out the last time they rotated my tires someone forgot the driver side lugs...cost was 90.00 to have a wheel hub stub, and a lug nut installed after it was sheared off.
Oh, it gets better...tech verified my concern at the dealership, and added that upon inspection including the sheared of stud and lug nut missing there were 3 lug nuts finger tight, yes over half of my lugs were loose, and one firmly secured. No other damage was seen so I lucked out big time.

I have a ton of information now, and will be doing my own work. Tomorrow I will be writing a letter to the owner of the dealership about it. I will be seeking a refund for the work done on negligence of the tech that did my oil and tire rotation.

It had been making a rough knocking noise and I had been looking at every forum, youtube video, and search for an explanation. I have been under my truck 8 times in the last four days looking at every connection that related to what I could find. Never occurred to me to double check dealership work for possible negligence for a simple routine service. I will have them double check everything in my presence now before I leave.

Can't trust them at all. I brought mine in to see why my transmission was skipping and I got it back leaking transmission fluid. Had to replace the ac condenser which cost about $500

EDIT: translated TL;DR: The secretary of Public Safety of Central Mexico's convoy of vehicles (including this Jeep) was attacked by a dozen gunmen. This Jeep GC was hit with 350 AK-47 bullets and even a grenade-launcher but due to the vehicle having level 5 shielding (USA standard) everyone survived with only minor shrapnel injuries due to the 40mm grenade launched at the window.

Holy ****!!! I think I remember seeing the build for that Jeep on this forum. Either that or it was someone in the Middle East. Glad everyone made it out alive!!!

After a search...Nope.. it was this guy in Venezuela. Still pretty insane. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/b...hread-1315232/

Fyi... http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_armored.htm
