dont really see the point to the mesh intake cover? now it will just allow water into the airbox

Nice legs on the chick in the 7th picture.

Now you WK looks like a Labrador. Lol. Just joking. If you are planning on doing off road mods, I guess the black grill will be ok for and off road look.

I want one of those antennas please. Can you make one for me in the same color that's 14 inches long???

14 inches is not huge. A 2" antenna is too ricey for my off road rig. The aftermarket antenna I have now is 14 inches. Check the picture below. Half the size of the OEM antenna.

My antenna is billet, polished and is 4". I highly doubt people would call it "ricey"

Looks great man, you plasti-dipped the lower air dam too right?

I am debating on doing mine but was unsure of it.

Everything looks awesome on your rig though!

Then say that to the 50+ and the future 20+ who have bought shorty antennas from our local vendor from JC's customs :)

When I have a free machine at work to do another one yeah I will. since i have the machine shop (cnc lathes, mills and cnc plasma table) at my disposal basically i plan on making a skid plate and redesigning my front tow hooks. i would buy from vendors but why not test my abilities at what i have to work with here. no offense. as for the legs those are of my fiances. caught here off guard.
as to the lower dam being the same....no i did not i only bought two cans of spray that only lasted four coats on the grille but did put two thick coats on the mesh i made for the lower rad.
