Night wheeled it with the other half of NCSU 4x4. First time meeting each other and wheeling.

DD'd for my fraternitys swap. Wasn't bad at all but I feel like the Jeep got beat on.

I'll show it some love when I go home tomorrow.

The fenders are bent that's why he's replacing them while building his Brute...

I think it's funny you just said "poor installation" when referring to one of the most detail oriented jeeps on here...not to mention one of the cleanest, if not the cleanest aev high line install I've seen....

Am I supposed to assume that your Jeep is better than Oman's? Do you have more money tied into yours than he does? I would think that a company like AEV would be out of business if they made their products like you say they do. I also don't see anything stupid about his bumper.....Seriously though, if you don't like something, keep it to yourself and don't publicly criticize someones Jeep that isn't yours.

Well update:

New windshield frame came with some imperfections... So doing something different and getting it powdercoater a textured black to match my fenders. Hoping it will be one of a kind...

Also it seems the roll cage is tweaked I'm going to have to use spacers to fasten the passenger side cage bar to the windshield. It's about 3/4" away from even touching the windshield frame. Hopefully the hardtop still goes on!

Find a big tree, wrap a tow strap around it the other end around the roll bar and pull it back straight.

That's what I'd do but I'm a little

Last night I installed my 1/2 cab mopar soft top, removed the rear seat and brackets, bolted down the rear tuffy storage unit, installed the D44 chromoly axle shafts twice and it's much easier if you put the right side in the right side and the left in the left side and I figured out a good way of mounting my Jerry can to the roll bar. I also painted my tire carrier and 1/2 hard doors. Not bad for just one night.

FYI: The Smittybilt XRC tire carrier is very strong, but the powdercoating on it SUCKS and after one winter in MI it ended up like this.

Yep - started out as a Road Armor but then I wanted to put more lights on it, and finally add the winch again - I used to have the 10" LED where the winch would have come out.

Redesigned it myself on CAD - had the altered parts cut out on the waterjet, then the old parts of the Road Armor removed with a plasma cutter and the new parts welded in. I also changed the design to raise the side pods to flow with the Highline fenders better.

It's not fakey - it's tried and tested! Unfortunately had a head-on collision in the dunes about 6 years ago - that one prompted the AEV Highline install. This time bending the frame prompted the Brute conversion. Gotta find those silver linings on those cloudy moments.

Minor bends in the bumper that were straightened out. Thankfully these days - more people run dune flags.



Too bad those minor bumps on the street come with so much paperwork. Otherwise it would be very tempting!
