Looks good
Now you need to get it dirty to match the bumper
I have contemplated doing this on my Rescue Green JK!
I might get a take-off grill from ebay so I can go back if I want.
Let us know how the texture is with cleaning, others have advised that it's hard to clean.
I like how it goes with your other mods, hinges and such.

I friggin' love your wheels. They look awesome, and I want that kind of wheel on my JK. You're right, it fits your jeep nicely Got a link? I looked at the KM2s but I cant seem to find it

A link to what? The wheels are XD series SPY's... And I put a clear coat over it just like I did the Jeep sign on the back and the sign cleans right up but I will let ya'll know about the grill since its plastic. Thanks for the compliments guys. Now I just gotta paint the hood hinges... Im thinkin about choppin the bumper and painting it along with the fenders. They may be getting chopped too. Or Im going to get some Poison Spyder flat fenders.

I like the Poison Spyder flats
The fronts look really good, the rears could be better!!

Turned my dual steering stabil into a single which took the place of the stock one. Dual setup kept dropping down and locking up my tie rod in the process and three steering stabils is just overkill... Also put on my military jeepers sticker.

I also put on the Rough country armor for my front and rear pumpkin and the "tow package" on the rear.

NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is the exact lift and tires I am going to do on my Rubicon. How long did it take to install just the lift? How does it ride now after it's settled in a bit? Any other issues with it?

Only issue I have had with it was the front track bar bracket.... It popped in and out after about one thousand miles and I would have to tighten it every now and then... I welded it about 2 weeks ago and have not had that problem again... If I could go back and do it again, I would have welded it from the start. Other then that, no problems at all and she rides like a dream.... er... Jeep. lol. Its pretty smooth for what you would expect out of a lifted Jeep and only squeaks when Im rock crawlin. I will suggest to not get the dual stabilizers though. Truly, all you need is one... I did all my work myself and I have had no death wobble issues... The stock stabil is fine but the aftermarket one looks cooler, lol.
