Well the UPS man visited me today :2thumbsup: and dropped off some work so added the Skid Row Front Skid, Smittybilt Seat Covers, 4WD Floormats. Seat covers were a little hard to put on for a seat cover but man look and feel great nice snug fit.

Good choices of mods so far. What seat covers did you get? Do they allow for side air bags?

deerassassin22 03-22-2011 07:04 PM

I got the smittybuilt seatcovers I bought the front seats and the rear was free. They fit nice and snug as you can see and they do allow for the use of side airbags.

Did the Grill Lastnight let it harden over night and install. I used Metal gutter cutter and spray painted it Chrome.

looks good so far.
i've actually been wondering where the heck to get fire extinguishers. my local jeep club requires you have one if you want to go on trail rides. looks like i'm off to walmart tonight :D

Looks great so far! Maybe reconsider the body lift you have planned...4.5" suspension will be enough for 37s with no body lift, and plenty more than enough for 35s :cheers2: Mike

^^^Thanks for adivce"

Thread update been traveling from Ft. Benning GA to Arizone and put some mods on along the way

1. Cobra CB with 4ft Firestick
2. ARB Front Diff Cover
3. KC 130 Long Range Slimlights

It's coming along just fine!! For the CB, did you have a rack up there? How did you mount that? I opted for the 75wxst ONLY because I couldn't figure out where to mount my 25LTD (which I still have NEW, in box...).

I went to homedepot and got a small pice of aluminum and 2 self taping screws. It works great no problems and ran the wires around the winshield down passenger side to battery and antenna on tailgate.
