    Hey folks, thanks for checking out this build.

    My wife and I were looking for a bigger vehicle for our three growing kids. We had a CT200h little hybrid that the kids were out growing fast. She really wanted a Lexus RX350 SUV, but I convinced her that as nice as the car is, it's boring.

    So on a trip to 4WP to pick up a hi lift for my Tacoma, there were 3 Jeeps parked out front. One of them was topless and had tube doors. She loved it. Luckily the Jeep dealer was just down the road from 4WPs and we stopped in.
    I told her if we were gonna get one, it had to be a Rubicon just for the lockers. So that's what she got.

    Kids love rolling with no top and doors.

    Wife entered a contest promotion for the Sacramento Kings to have the vehicle wrapped in Kings design logo. She won, and they did an entire wrap.

    For the Wife birthday, I got her a set of LED headlights with white halos. Quality of light is light years better than the stock headlights, which reminds me of my dads old maglite flashlight.

    Headlight upgrade is definitely one of the best upgrades for the jk. Those candles that come stock are horrible.

    Im subbed too. Really sweet JKU. Agreed, standard headlights suck. Upgrades are so expensive. I flip on my LEDS bar when ever possible. If i won't get pulled over. I run a Nighthawk Light Brow. Very similar to your wife's Angry Grill. I love the look. ATTITUDE.20170325_132403.jpg keep us posted. Awesome read.

    Thanks Bob. Your jeep looks awesome! I like the light bar, looks like it's just floats above the bumper and hoop. Angry grill def give it some attitude.
    I just purchased some led fog lights and will post a pic once I get them installed.

    Thanks Mike. Didn't plan that. It just worked out that way. And i had to customize it to fit the hoop. I should have went with a 17" light bar. Either way. Even though I'm a Knicks fan. Lol. You and your wife's JK look awesome. Keep the updates coming. Awesome read dude. Thank you.
