So the other day I goto pick up my girlfriend and low and behold her father asks me if I want a set of fog lights that he found in the bushes brand new and the box was all wet, he didnt even bother to look just threw it into the recycling bin - i looked and two hella 500ff :]
so guess what i finally did today...
(yes the fenders are f up, yes im getting flat fenders at the first of the month)
I also replaced my stock air box with a bolt on air intake from auto take, makes my engine sound alot deeps ^_^
[I'll post a picture soon]
The fenders will be shipped soon along with the rocksliders, i know the tubes are in fact finished with the fab just waiting for the sliders :]]]
also check out what i did the fourth - there was 11 of us total:
with all the rain we've had the trail was so washed out that parts of it even began to split with a 3-5ft deep, all the rocks were loose and made for an awesome trip - we did miss the firworks and didnt bbq till 11-12 at night but it was well worth it :]
so yesterday i took off the hood lights that have been there for ..how long, and I added that decal i had made back in Feb - not sure if I like it yet though.. ill post pictures when I can
..also ordered the sliders and fenders on the 1st hopefully those will be shipping soon so i can get them fitted, painted and mounted.. guess well see :] of course ill have pictures for you guys
Its almost time for those fenders/rock sliders to come in but before that, i took some pictures - finally show you guys the decal and the hook lights removed..
Also - Today i decided to take the foam/padding off of the roll cage, also wash & wax ^_^
the mail man might as well be Santa...
tubes fenders & rock sliders
over lay of the rock sliders (yes i know theyre on the wrong side)
Day Two of Work:
(while the parts at the shop are being painted)
-same as tues-
should be done painting in a day or two,
I'm matching the body color for all the flat panels - and the front flare upto wrap around bar and the bars of the sliders will be black bedliner to match the front bumper, also i got a set of Rubicon stock fenders for the rear that will also be painted with the bedliner.. Will cont to post pictures
Also went up to the local off road shop today, found a nice lift - thinking about doing RE3.5 or mixing that with teraflex control arms because they seem a lot stronger.. guess well see - gatta get those 35s to fit ^_^
thought i was ganna finish up today but only got the front basicly done :\
..guess well see wat tomorrow brings
its 4am, my buddy live about half hour away and i just finished work on the jeep (well for now) - we put in 12 hours today and came out great, i only got two pictures for ya now -so heres a sneak peek ^_^
i updated the last post and heres some more, i found a rock by my friends house
I woke up at 730am started working on the jeep at 9am - ran into problems, too food breaks, fixed wobbles and got it drivable home (friends house is about 40 mins drive away) ...it is now 4am and it is DONE.
Budgetboost is still in there, image taken right when we stared - basically.
The good news is, I'm going to be getting Mickey Thompson MTZ 35x12.5R15, once I figure out if I'm ganna beef up my 35 or find a 44 some how :\ I'll figure something out I'm sure, wouldn't mind getting some lockers too ^_^
The bad new is, though I sit higher then most 4" lifts with 33s (locally) I still fit in the mall (6' 7") ...lol
