Still have a hoop and d rings to weld on haha, but I'm liking the silver. Might paint it a gunmetal color along with my grille. Plastidip is nice and easy but holds onto dirt like a *****

I plan on staying overseas as long as possible; if I get Germany or Italy I'll be ditty moving for sure and that rack will be priority #1 haha

Finished the bumper, painting it to match the rims. I've also flipped the steering stabilizer after destroying the first, added a cb, and some other stuff I can't remember at the moment. Nothing major


Bedlined today, last work on it for a while, it's getting shipped to guam on wedensday

I'm terrible at updating this... I'm on JF almost every day haha.

Biggest project so far has been monstalining, got it for free


Also got an ipf backup light, khaki bikini top, dynomax muffler located where the resonator used to be, and a rigid job box i still need to mount where the rear seat was. Also wired the cb to a 12v plug... much easier. Probably a bunch I missed... Carhartt seat covers and a snatch block in the mail! Ill get some more pics up when I can

Gotta quick question about England. I am headed over next month with a 15 JKU and have been looking into what is needed to make it match UK specs for lights. Is it a hack job with added wires and loss of the reverse lights or can it be done using factory Jeep parts?

I spent quite a few days in Guam as well. Had a lot of fun there and the island has lots of places to explore. Diving is damn nice too.

Keep up the good mods.

There are shops around that can do the conversion- some guys do it themselves. Its the oem lights and some small added leds or something. I had a shop do it because I didn't know any better, and they ****ed my wires up pretty good. Had to run new wire when I got here to fix it. Lakenheath Offroad Club is a pretty big group, join on Facebook and they can definitely help you, whichever way you wanna do it.

Looks like ill be headed to the states in december, dont know where yet. Im hoping for florida or vegas, but either way, that means jeep parts will be SO much easier to get haha. Already planning on visiting all 50 states, so hopefully my initial vision for the jeep as a work/overland jeep will come to fruition. No major mods or wheeling since my last update, the coral here really destroys your tires. But ill tell ya, the job box is hands down the best thing ive put in this jeep haha. Ill get a pic up in a min

Ive been without doors here for about 8 months haha. Gotta love Guam weather. Which reminds me- im starting to have an issue with my dash- all power is lost to it, my gauges drop to zero and it christmas trees up on me, so im looking into possible issues for that. so far all i have is that it could be a loose battery terminal but shaking the terminal didnt do anything
