Added custom decals from Don @ PixelDecals.com
Fender "Wrangler" and Fender "Unlimited" decals
All in reflective black

Still have not added the wangler and unlimited decals. I think the original actually looks good, at least for now.

Installed Cool Tech’s CB All-in-One Kit

It's a nice kit, it includes:
Cobra 75 WXST CB Radio
GateMount
3’ Black Firestick Antenna
VersaMount

I have been having trouble getting it tuned. I need to play around with it some more.

Made Car Seat Cover for my dog. Unfortunately no pics. I only use it when I take him swimming or when he goes mudding with me.

It's simple to make, just need an oversized towel, 6 grommets, and a few bungee cords.

I don't think the cardboard is going to hold up as well as the shiittybilts.

Awesome build! Haven't got to look at it all yet but working on it! Nice to see another build that isn't crazy or high dollar, just a lot of smaller simple real life items

I should have titled this, "A Build Thread, on a Government Salary!"

Glad you like the "down to earth-ness" Cobra!

Yes that is a table saw being used as a painting stand. I had a few local guys show up to help me! And by "help," I mean drink my beer.

Couple finished shots. Then, I had my brother visit, so I took him to for a light trail ride.

All right, I'm caught up! Question, how are the wheels holding up? Plasti dipped right?? Really want to do mine but if I do I don't want to have to keep redoing them.

I ran with them plasti-dipped for a few months. I never had an issue. If you do try it, use 1 can per wheel. The thicker your coat, the easier it is to remove the plastic when your ready. Also, do not use the last 1/4 of the can on the wheels. If you do, the paint sprays funny, and it will look bad. It's a nice preserver for the clear coat on these moabs. Main reason I painted mine, was to get a feel for the blacked out look, and it helped hide my rock rash.
