Meant to post yesterday, but a storm hit just as I finished putting it all back together. Here is the new face of the jeep
Before:

After:

I like it, my fiancé doesn't like it as much but she preferred the shine of the chrome (hence the ring I just bought)

Got bored yesterday and painted my clear fog lenses into "selective yellow". Just waiting for the sealant to dry a bit more before putting things back together.

Will post night images later.

Nahh. I need new tires soon anyways so I'm just gonna buy the wheels now, adapters in a few weeks, then tires when the time comes. On the bright side, I found some for like $28 each at a website called wheeladapters.com, so I won't take as big on a hit on them as I had expected.

Replaced lower hose. I had to put a 1.5" PVC piece around the house because it was rubbing through against the A/C compressor. I then wrapped it with heat tape.

I wouldn't cheap out on wheel adapters. I might just be paranoid but I had a friend who ran some and they broke off going down the highway!

That gets expensive quick... 17" tires are a bit pricier than 15-16" tires.

Not naysaying, I just went through that idea myself. Plus, some tire places won't install tire/wheels on vehicles with spacers.

Also, I'm debating building a hi-lift mount that fits in my trailer hitch. That way when I can have it when I go out on trails, but it doesn't have to be there all the time. Right now the jack usually rides shotgun because I can't commit to mounting it anywhere. I don't want it on my hood, and my top is usually down instead of off, so I can't mount it on rear roll bars...any other ideas?
I mounted mine on top of the rear bumper. Not sure if you can depending on bumper you have. Just used a couple Grade 8 bolts with Nylock nuts and carry a socket/ratchet anyway.

Got my new SmittyBilt bumper on and wired up my new lights. Forgot about the winch plate so I had to order that before I can put on my new winch
Ohh and nevermind the blue zip ties. I am also waiting on a license plate braket as my old one did not fit.
