    Wassup jeep fam , for those who follow my build know I lifted my jeep 4 inches and threw some 35s wrapped around 20 inch rims . Also added lower control arms front and back and front disconnects . Things I already have that aren't pictured is the hilift jack .
    But I'm thinking of doing side steps , inner fenders and then fender flares. So let me know what I should do first I'm deff thinking of doing side steps first but also wana get skid plates before I hit the trails let me know what u guys think . Sorry for the longish thread.

    Thanks @OFFGRID i threw the bumper on a week or two after owning it.
    _________Update: I bent my sway bars off-roading the passgener side sway bar was so close to my coils , my disconnect came off so only 1 was connected cuasing it to bend when I flexed.

    I'm heating it up and unbending it when I find a tourch but for right now I'm ridding with no sway bars in the front.

    So I might rebuild the front end with new drag link and new steering just so nothing else in the front breaks ..
    But I have also realized to do this I will have to spend 700+ .. and there's a lot of things more I wana do this jeep I need the money for . So what u guys think about my jeep ? What else should I do to it ?

    Just noticed. Are you running flat fender flares up front, and stock in the rear? I kinda like it.

    I'm eventually going to flats. And to answer your question. Yes....i would do inners. Looks much cleaner and tight look. Can also be painted to match body color. I've seen several like this. Awesome look.

    Oh BTW dude. Straight up are great. Those angle shots. Just give us a headache trying to focus. Lol.

    Rig looks sweet. Thanks for sharing ďude.

    I appreciated the angle shots. Done right it makes the shot more dramatic.

    Yeah for your Jeep it does. They were the first pics we saw of your rig. You had to make a dramatic entrance. Lol

    I'm not a huge fan of graphics on vehicles, but I dig the ones on your jeep!

    One of the first mods planned was decal removal until I realized how unique it made the Jeep. Once removed it would just be another unwashed black JK. Today I appreciate the decals a lot with the matching theme in the tach. Both decals are huge and replacements run over $160

    I cut my fenders using a harbor frieght cutting wheel I try my best to make it as even as possible using tape and my eye-chromtier lmfao . Thanks for the support . I am going to finish the fenders with door liner I havint found one thick enough yet .

    And I still have to order the inner fenders .
    And still have to install my dual steering stablilzer. Waiting on some tools to come in I ordered.

    And I have seen those decals before on a purple jk and jku back when I went to seaside jeep event.
