So got some new stuff going on the heep over the next few weeks so thought I would start a thread showing off the progress.

Just picked her up yesterday in Sac and had some non visible items installed including a banks stainless header, centerforce clutch and lots of maintenance. I ordered a Rock Hard cage today and last week ordered a set of billet hood hinges from Prestige (not yet arrived).


few pics taken yesterday






Speaker pod pics with the top down... they sound as good as they look!







New gauge cluster mounted on the center console




That's the Rubicon in the background just above the hood cowl




Also about to start the garage floor painting and paint the walls for the Jeep Cave!





I will post pics as I install the cage and other parts. :evilbat:

Re: Upgraded Summer Pics of the heep

Just decided to sell off all the tires and wheels I have and go with a set of 37 12.5 17 Goodyear Kevlar MTR tires and 17x8 OMF Beadlock wheels. If anyone is interested in the wheels/tires above or my set of Maxxis Creepy Crawlers check out my thread over in the Flea Market. The evil always sets in in the summer.... :evilbat:


*edited... cancelled tire order and stayed with the Creepy Crawlers.

looks good.

what did you buy/use to make the speaker pods look like that?
Had them built by an audio shop. He used the original pods and built the molding around them and then the fiberglass... paid to have this done as it's not in my skills set (at least if I want them to look good when I'm done).

I will see if I can dig one up, the spot beam has a range of about 1100 feet and they also have a driving beam. I am running HID in the stock location these are not HID however. Currently rewiring the Warn SDB lights so if I can find an old pic of them on I will post, however they are currently down.

FYI... these are the SDB 210's, Warn makes and SDB 160 that are not as large in size but look the same as what's pictured above. Performance is nearly the same as the larger units I have.

Thanks... I custom built it, that bumper and the rear hold the air supply for my OBA setup.




On another note... had to pick this back up from the paint shop today because he was not too interested in pulling the center plate out for me so...









Still have to grind it out. That center plate makes no since to me... maybe as an extra and on top of the bars but not a standard piece on the bottom side of the rack??? :bangtard:

Re: Upgraded... Summer Pics of the heep

So this is the before pic of the last set of OMF beadlocks I had... they were 5 on 4.5 with black Scalloped rings






And another pic of the new wheels... I like these rings better.



Since then I have added bling and the hubs but she still has a stock look and that's the look I'm going for.
