Any possibility of posting some pictures taken in the sunlight? Dark colors and the shadows don't appear to do it justice. It looks good though.

Beautiful Jeep. What kind of lift does it have?

Looks awesome but you NEED bigger tires with all that lift! Love the color and the F350/450 in the back!!

Is that the rubicon express 4.5? I have been debating back in forth between 4.5 and 2.5.
Absolutely beautiful!

Hey kponytail,
I know this is an old post but I was wondering how you made your seams in the rear of the tub invisible? Meaning the two lateral panel lines near the tail lights and the rectangular horizontal one about 4 inches up from the bottom. It looks very clean with them glossed over and solid. What was the process? Did you use seam sealer?
