XK went under the knife (Literally)

Had a good weekend to do quite a bit of mods. I will list them below with pictures. First here is a before picture.



Did the front bumper cutting mod. Absolutely love it.
Installed 4xG Matrix with Stinger and (2) 100W Off road lights.
Put in all new LED Interior Lights and license plate.
Replaced every exterior light with either LED, High performance Halogen, or HIDs.
Spray tinted my taillights and third brake light with VHT Nightshade.

Very happy with everything. Next up is a set of Moto Metal wheels. 17x8 0 offset.

Pictures don't do it much justice as much as in person.

Looks so much meaner with the bumper trim.

Nicely done.

Biggest thing is how solid the 4xG Matrix is. I feel way better having that on now with recovery points. The brush guard I had on was very flimsy and would more than likely rip off if I had to be recovered.

I've been kicking this idea around too.

Of course, having to cut the bumper makes me hesitate - but I do like the idea of having some solid reliable recovery points.

The other option I have been kicking around, which is what I'm leaning toward, is have a custom steel front bumper made with recovery points and a winch housing because I know at some point, I'm going to add a winch to this set-up.

I know Bluelakeoffroad makes some pretty nice custom steel bumpers for Commanders.

I tried to have the factory front tow hooks installed - not realizing that the brush guard is already utilizing the mounting points needed to mount the tow hooks.
