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!:thumbsup:

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:thumbsup:)

so heres some pics so far...

Got my v-leds today.. but they were not all there. so i installed the front courtesy, rear courtesy, and 1 vanity light.

they forgot to ship my other vanity light and my dome lights... so i called and they are gonna ship them asap. kind of a bummer but ill post pics when they are all in.

there are a lot of DIY mods on here that don't cost much but have a great visual impact (like the DIY grille mod)...HAHA is the balls? LMAO never heard that one before

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.

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!!
