Some of the story.

Several changes were made since these pictures to the edition I currently have. Crate engine and transmission, front and rear recon axles (e-locks), rubicon transfer case, the usual bolt on stuff like bumpers, 18 inch wheels & 37 inch tires, hood, rock rails, fenders, hidden winch, dual batteries, high end shocks etc.
Future additions include 17 inch wheels (wife wants a better looking wheel ) with a more road friendly all terrain tire, more bolt on nice to have/fun stuff. And, hopefully a powered passenger wheelchair transfer seat (meeting with Team Adaptive technician in Pensacola today). Plans also include painting her powered 4 wheel drive beach wheelchair red to match and our ATV trailer to match. Why? Because my woman deserves to ride in style!

I read your post to Kari (wife). She said, "just wait until we finish with our planned additions, he'll be up all night". What a woman I have.

By the way, Kari is driving in the youtube video in my signature. The Jeep that runs over a gopro camera was us. Her feet were ductaped to the brake pedal and I was reaching across the tunnel with my left leg trying to control the throttle. It was a big deal at the C4C event.

A little paint work on the fenders. Gunmetal gray like the wheels. Red on the tubes.
