    Been working on this for about 5 months and with the help of friends it's almost complete. Not going to bore you with words just pictures as it progressed.

    Thanks. Looking to do coilovers or ori struts next year so I'm sure I will be changing the rear cover up some.

    I was told I only have 50% of my jeep peeps left that will hang with me so I figured it was probably the mall crawler crowd so why not blend in a little.

    Nice touches man. All it needs now is a sticker on the back that says,"Don't follow me. You won't make it."

    Anyone who says building a mall crawler is easy has never painted interior parts before. [​IMG]

    I can't take credit for the control arms. All I did was grind on them lol. I know someone who can help you out when you get ready.

    Needed a "high mounted" third brake light to pass inspection and figured it would be just as easy to do something permanent than a temporary light. This is what I came up with. [​IMG][​IMG]
    Think that will pass?

    Started replacing the audio in the jeep today. Started with the head unit and it made a huge difference. Next week I'll be replacing all the factory speakers and amp. Thinking about doing 10's under the front seats. Going all focal speakers and amps does anyone have any experience with them?

    The higher end focal stuff is amazing. But you are looking at up to $1000 for a set of 6.5's. The lower end ($250 - $300) stuff is pretty good as well. Just make sure you have the power to tune them properly.
