Akimball's Build thread

To start off i want to thank everyone involved on this site its amazing and it is a great deal of help to me. i was surprised to see how helpful the site is and how everyone is eager to lend a helping hand. thank you!

So i want to start a build thread. i see so many out there with people showing the progress of their jeeps and how things are coming along. i think they give people awesome ideas and just looking at other peoples cars is fun too. I also think this will help me keep moving the progress on my jeep and it will be cool to look back and see what i have done.

hopefully it will be as nice as some of the ones i have seen on this site.


So my first purchases were a 6" black stubby antenna, vled 6k license plate bulbs, and cree 7w 6k led reverse lights.( thank you to BlackedoutWK for helping me with the cree's)

so heres some pics so far...

when i first got it..



vled 6k license plate bulbs


6" shorty antenna black

cree 7w 6k led reverse bulbs



Complete De-Badge


6k vled interior

ive also done the seatbelt chime code thing too if that counts lol..

next plans are tint and weather tech mats and rain guards, hopefully sooner than later.

Re: Akimball's Build thread

What is the grille mod? i was thinking srt grille, but what ive been trying to figure out is , when people say they have an srt grille is it just the different plastic inserts or the whole thing??

i wish i had the nerve to bake my headlamps i want to do the nifty mod, but i know for a fact ill screw them up and have to buy new ones.

Re: Akimball's Build thread

iirc the SRT mesh is the entire backing...but idk if it is 6 individual pieces or all one piece

here is the link for the DIY grille mod...there are a lot of variations posted in there so find the look you like and roll with it...one of the best things I have done, and the cheapest/easiest!!
