Wheyman's Build Log

So I've had my Jeep a little over six months and I've done quite a bit to it in that time so I thought I would try to pool everything so far into a timeline of sorts of what I've done.
So here it is bone stock the way it came home but after I completed detailing it.

2015 Trailhawk, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat, Hazzard Sky lift, BFG KO2 255/70/17, Auxbeam 20" LED Light Bar, MFC A Pillar LED Mounts, Auxbeam 18w 4" Spots, RRO Super Sliders

Then I picked up an Auxbeam 20" lightbar and needed someplace to attach it so I bought the MicTuning license plate lightbar mount. I also read a post about a fire extinguisher holder so I picked one up to get mine out of the cubby in the back. I wasn't real happy with the tow hook antenna mount so fabbed one up to mount to the lightbar mount.

Next came the tires. Wanted a little more clearance and some better looking tires to boot. After a lot of research on here (I think I read all of the tire posts) I decided on the BFG KO2's.

The one thing I really didn't like since I bought it was the wheels, and now they really didn't look right at all to me. So some more research and found Dupli-Color to match the paint. Many hours of prep, primer, paint, clearcoat later and here is the result.

Which brings us up to today. Waiting on the RRO Super Sliders to get shipped to me for install (hopefully before I leave for Easter Jeep Safari) and then back to saving for the next additions. Planning on the winch setup and then a Gobi roof rack system. After that I may end up going with the lift system from RRO since it will probably be close to 40k miles and would just as soon upgrade the shocks and struts as replace them with stock. I think I want to paint the calipers red too. Was going to do this today but weather has not been cooperating too mush. The winds yesterday were 35 with gusts near 60. Just slightly more than normal for around here.
