Lightbulb Project: Green Beast

So this is what my Jeep looked like before I bought it:





Bought it in June

This is where we are now!:





I recently repainted the roof rack a darker black!




Repainted all the flares a darker black as well







Ion Alloy rims to match the color of the Jeep








The Bible and the Constitution: two books I will always keep in my Jeep. I also have a sub in the back as well as a custom built raised platform for safety and to boost the sound of the sub.


The Projects on the Green Beast:





After my accident, I decided to work on fixing the flare with bondo... worked but didn't look nice.





Bought pair of side fender flares to replace the ugly bondo job from my accident last summer





Bought two new, thicker cross bars to support the roof rack





These were the crossbars which were on top before I bought the Jeep





These are the original headlights and they are awfully dim.





Bought a replacement pair of headlights. This time, they are custom LEDs!!! Time to get rid of these ugly halogens





Custom LED headlights, bout 300 for the pair but worth it. Should have them installed on Monday!





Plug and play system, just have to buy a new harness




NEXT Projects:

-Lightbar
-Adding a driver side Alpine speaker (other speaker had water damage)
-Change the seat covers
-Move the fog lights onto the roof rack
-Paint the hi-lift jack
-Higher lift

Looking good. Word of advice, paint the handle of the hi lift red or yellow. That way when you use it, it doesn't get lost in the bushes. It can and will happen with a dark green or black jack. Ask me how I know.

Yup! That's exactly what I was going to do!
