Great looking jeep. Really like your front bumper. That is what i want mine to look like. Can you tell me a little more about your steering? What all are you using?

Just upgraded the tie rod and drag links to the big daddy ones, and used the weld in tie rod inserts.

The dash is a stock dash with blue/black carbon fiber epoxyed over it, then re-drilled the holes where I wanted the Autometer gauges.

I never finished my build thread, but here it is. The new soft top was the last purchase, next will be re-gearing the axles.

That's a lot of work just to get the soft top to fit! Looks great though.

Oh that sucks! The garage at my old house burnt down with the landlords car in it...Luckily I was at work at the time so my jeep wasnt in there. I know it sucks though. Hopefully the insurance company comes through and everything gets fixed.
