Custom 2013 Wrangler

Just finished this Wrangler for a local Jeep dealer. We color matched just about everything that was raw black plastic. Also did a bunch of color matching the interior trim and also added a Roadwire leather interior. I think it should come from the factory like this.

Re: Custom 2013 Wrangler

As the proud owner of a nicely built 2011 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with some do-dads added on....in my honest opinion.....

that thing is an abomination and should be killed with fire.

Way too much white on that thing. Should've left some of the black plastic for contrast.

I'm sure you put a lot of work into it and as far as the quality of the workmanship goes, it looks like it was done well. Just waaaaaaaayyyy too much for my taste. Looks like it should be in a rap video.

Also, I'm a little confused as to why they'd put All-Terrains on it because I guaranty it'll never see anything other than pavement.

Just my $.02 though

I like the interior accents, but as far as the exterior.... Puke.

Depends who buys it. Local shop did something similar and added 10K in stereo.
Some dude bought it and beat the crap out of it... its still got jeep guts... when rich kids get them, they can care less about taking care of em...daddy just buy them another

Re: Custom 2013 Wrangler

This isn't the first Wrangler we have built for the dealer, and they're the ones who decide what they want done. I'm just here to fulfill their wishes. As long as there are customers that want this look, they'll continue to have us build them. Very few buyers of Wranglers offroad they're trucks. Most here in our neck of the woods buy them as an alternative to the main stream SUV's that other brands offer. This same dealer is also having us do a JK-8 conversion on a truck in the near future.

Re: Custom 2013 Wrangler

Like I said the quality of the work is spectacular. Just doesn't fit what a Jeep is really about

Re: Custom 2013 Wrangler

Could you please tell me the process of painting the plastics. How are you getting rid of the texture and is this holding up? Thanks. I just bought a white one and I guess I'm not gonna treat it like a Jeep, so I love the look of everything white.
