Do you really think anyone on here is going to say no? There's always something to be done! What are you going to use it for? Lots of off-road? Street? Both? (Congrats on getting it moving by the way )

I'd spray bomb your doors white. Might want to put Roswell on you plate and hang a few Aliens off the rear bumper, jk, seriously, good work and I can add this, keep it simple with your budget and it will be good to go.

May I ask what your suspension/tire combo is? That Jeep has the stance I'm looking for on my 72 CJ5. Any input is appreciated....Jeep looks great by the way!!
