Last mods before junkyard

This is the end of the jeep road for me. I will be leaving Kosovo to take a year off in Hungary and have to give back my diplomatic plates in a couple weeks. The car cost me less than it would be to import it into Europe and the running costs are scaring off any local buyers so the next stop will be a junk yard in Serbia.

I did want to complete the mods that I started anyway and, in one of my last substantial posts, I wanted to share them with you guys.


I took care of the wheel suspension: bilstein shocks; Eibach Springs; Startech Monostar IV 19” and a set of Kumho ECSTA STX. I also did the grill with black matte vinyl, actually did it twice by now.





I always wanted the skirts but shipping alone is around $900 from states and a set costs over $1,300 in continental Europe. I found a set near a friend’s in NY for dirt cheap and he cut them in half to be shipped APO for $27.



Over here they are used to this kind of work and simply put them back together.



Almost done.



All together now.




Then came the HID retrofit but with the original 2005-2007 Stillen covers. Note the vinyl starting to lift on certain on the grille, you need a primer, ideally 3m 94 ... or far better skills than mine.



A closer look at the stillen.

Re: Last mods before junkyard

I started with the roof and since I still had some vinyl I decided to do the hood too …




Another shot.



A view from a top.



At this point it looks good from the front but it somehow begs to be a full two tone and since there was still some vinyl left I decided to give it a shot … and finally finish the pillars as well.

Re: Last mods before junkyard
