My aspirations aren't to go too huge although I'm sure once it's lifted I'll want what everyone wants which is to go bigger.
I'm aiming to fit 32s on 16" moabs
3-4" of lift
Black wherever I can tastefully paint it.
Sound system in the future
Bolt ons on the motor...maybe someday an Eaton SC.
For now she has humblr beginnings and I can't wait to see where she takes me

Keep an eye on those housings. I had the same ones and they melted after a week on the jeep.

Hey thanks!
I'll will keep an eye on em. The lenses at least are glass. Hopefully the rest of it holds up. I'm only running 35W hids so they won't get toooo hot.
Right now I'm debating on whether or not to buy a spectre cowl intake...really mixed reviews I feel like...
I had a k&n cai on my s10 and I guess it made a good bit of noise but really I loved it...made a good growl, I just don't know if this 4.0 is capable of growling haha its more of a tractor.

Have those headlights and clear markers too! Love the look but having rocks as headlights would be just as useful as those headlights.

Usually I'd agree with ya man but these are retrofits! Courtesy of our man choo_31.

I'll post output pics when I get the hids in.
I am like beyond happy with the bumper. The middle piece will be perfect for a light bar

And as much as I never thought I'd have a gold vehicle I am pretty in love with this gold.

License plates gonna say "24K"

Don't make fun of me lol
