    I mentioned in the original post.

    Have you seen Gardians of the Galaxy? Hes the leader of a clan of ravagers. The guy with blue skin who captures Peter Quill and raises him to be a ravager. So my wife thought "blue guy.... blue jeep... Yondu! That's what you should call it!" Lol

    Parts arriving and parts ordered. I do have my wheels. Bumper, lift, and lights are on order. I'm thinking about powder coating the 1/4 pounder the same color as the wheels. Think the battleship grey/sting grey with the hydro would look real nice. 20200217_164642.jpeg20200217_164210.jpeg

    I think that would look good also.

    More parts arriving. Tires, lights, and bumper have arrived. I had a bit of trouble finding a powder coat that is somewhat similar to Sting Gray, but i think I found a good match.

    Tomorrow I'm going to mount the quarter pounder on my wrangler, drill the holes for my lights then send it off to get powder coated.

    I was really disappointed in the shape my Dring mounts arrived. They were wrapped together in the box rather than separately and were all chipped and scratched up, had black paint chips all over in the box. I know they're just d rings but I'd at least like them to be new looking before I put them on the jeep. Be nice if these could be ordered bare as well. 20200313_151713.jpeg20200313_145511.jpegScreenshot_20200313-165512_Instagram.jpegScreenshot_20200313-165504_Instagram.jpeg

    Mine as well. With all these parts around it's hard to just look at them and not have a jeep to install them on lol!


    I think Prismatic's stormy grey will be a close enough match to Jeeps sting gray. Now to get her powder coated. Holes are drilled where the LP6s will go as well. Resized_20200314_112912.jpeg
