Kev's WK2 Buildup - Australia - Photo Heavy!

Hi guys,
I was inspired from a guy on a different forum to create my own thread for the mods I've done from the beginning. I really enjoyed reading his and hopefully you'll do the same with mine!

I've been working on setting the car up for Camping, and also a trip to Cape York (Australia) in June tis year!

Standard - The day we picked it up:


Start of the Mods - Mopar Rock rails, Chrome exhaust tip + rear pad surround + front lip, Custom LED Garage Door Button, LED DRL Bulbs, Prorack Roof rails, Mopar recovery hook:




Camping at North Stradbroke Island:





Nudge Bar Install (keeping the recovery hook!):


Fridge Slide / replacement floor (Thanks Scarps!!):







UHF Install (Uniden 7740 & AT870):



Removed the Chrome Fog surrounds (didn't like them!) then:
Suspension (Murchison Products 40/50mm lift) & Tyres (265/65/18 BF Goodrich A/T):







Mopar Skid Plates (Fuel tank x 2, Transfer case x 2, Front)


Hope the photos turn out ok, it was hard choosing a variety! - Note: I did try and rotate them all correctly but Photobucket keeps changing them?!
If you have any questions - fire away!
Kev.

Kev,

Hi Troy,

At this stage the straps are through the spare wheel. I do want to revisit this in the near future to see what else is possible - I do have a few ideas from when I stripped the car down but I just don't seem to have the time!

Kev.

Re: Kev's WK2 Buildup - Australia - Photo Heavy!

I want to install the garage remote same as you as it looks great!! I've seen a couple of single line wiring diagrams and it looks pretty simple, but where did you source the button? Is it lit? Looks great and will be my next mod so any help is appreciated. Cheers.
