They should look pretty neat with the gloss black grill we're planning. The Jeep will be all white, with an all black grill and these black lights. Should look cool!

The lights have arrived...absolutely killer looking...Can't wait to get these installed and put some power to them!









Also, we've been working on the brackets for the seats, and have some up with some pretty awesome looking tubular mounts. These should hold everything in place, and look real cool too.

The front and rear axles have arrived from Currie, and as promised, I wanted to give you all the first look at these...With monster 4" OD x .375" wall axle tubes the rear Dana 70HD should work just awesome with the Detroit locker. The front is a Dana 60HP with Detroit Electrac locker & 3.5" OD x .375" wall tubes. We are still waiting on the portal's but these look pretty killer and we'd like to say a big thank you to everyone over at Currie for helping us out with this build.





Work on the seats, and cage has continued over the last few weeks, and we've been able to get the Mastercraft suspension seats mounted on the new brackets, and tack some of the remaining parts of the roll cage in place. While progress may seem a little slower these days, this build has many little details that consume large amounts of time, but we want to make sure everything is done properly. Feel free to let us know what you think of the work so far. I know our fab guys all appreciate the support and following of all the forum members, and enthusiasts alike.







Hope everyone is getting ready for spring! Today was one of the first days we could go outside without our coats on! Can't wait for the snow to melt.

Steve

Ontario Canada ;) Pretty common misconception. Huntsville Alabama would not have anywhere near the white stuff we have on the ground!
