Good bye Stock Jeep...

Finally got around to working on the jeep this weekend. Installed a 3 inch black bull bar, Mounted and wired off road lights, and Plasti dipped my rims and grill black. Shes finally starting to look like a real jeep. I couldn't have done it without all of you guys on this forum. Thank you so much. You guys rock!

looks really good, i actually like the look of the bull bar that you put on.

That 2" and bigger tires is really going to make it look beefy and more rugged!!!

Thank you!! I got the bull bar off eBay after a bad experience with carid. And yep those are leds. "tough led lights" is the brand I think. Not anything special but great reviews off Amazon and they were originally 130ish marked down to 50, so I grabbed them up for a starter set of lights.
Here's a link if anyone is interested. Got to love amazon prime.
