    Since then, I have added a few things.

    Mounted the hi-lift to the rear roll bar and strapped a fire extinguisher.

    Also, that's not a pristine 4 year old windshileld.

    I've replaced that too (just last week in fact).

    Safelite was great BTW. The guy was very professional. Insurance paid for everything with ZER0 deductable so that was was nice. Can't believe it took me 4 years to realise that. LOL! (Thank you wife)

    Oh Yeah, I added the hood, which some of you have already seen.

    Along with some decals.

    Also bought a soft top for dirt cheap in mint condition so that was good.

    I have this baby on the way in a week.

    (Already being built by JCR as I type this.)

    JCR Full width rear bumper powder coated with Shield tire carrier.

    I decided on a full width bumper as opposed to a mid like up front because it still gives me way more clearnce than stock and protects those corners a bit better while hiding the spot welds on the body seams.

    Now I'll need to get some led's for the rear bumper and eventually a winch. I've been ooking at the ENgo for a long time now. Going for a 10k synthetic.

    My wife got me this little key chain when I bought the Jeep and it just seemed natural to put it on the rear view.

    It looks good, is that the rugged ridge hood?? I'm all about someone doing their own thing and making it one of a kind.

    "...is that the rugged ridge hood??"

    Yep. A Rugged Ridge hood.

    I really liked the look of it. Was wanting one since it first came out and finally bought one.

    I still have my old hood and I haven't decided what to do with it yet.

    Maybe a shelf with an area to post fridge magnets? YEAH!

    great build. love the idea of a shelf with the original hood. I changed mine from a stock to the AEV and it's been sitting in our pool house for four years, mint condition. That might make a cool shelf!
