    New picture:

    Taken a couple days ago at the EP/LC ExPo Meet and Greet. Thanks to LexusAllTerrain for the great pictures.



    You can now see how I mounted my lights, my lightbar, and my custom centercaps.

    More updates and pictures and stuffs:

    First off, the most recent picture I've got:


    *Note: I fixed the nasty mess of wires and zip ties on the light bar the day after I took this picture, now there are only 4 zip ties, and it looks much nicer.

    Now, something I've been wanting since I started building my storage deck (not finished yet). Camp Lights, to light up the interior a bit more than usual, so I can cook and such. Picked up these cheap-o ricer "fog lights" at O'Reillys for like $25, and installed them as such:

    From my night time, driveway testing, they're pretty good for this, and even look good. And best of all, I got it all wired up right the very first time. Very proud of that, as I usually screw up wiring.

    A daytime picture of one of the lights on:


    And lastly, a few little cosmetic things:


    And lastly, my favourite:

    I'll have pictures up tomorrow hopefully, but as a teaser, I'll say these two things:

    Well, its been a while folks. After some prodding and a whole slew of new stuffs, I've returned to you with a grand update.

    Firstly, an updated picture:



    As you may notice, I've got a nice new addition to the nose of my rig:



    Scored this little gem for $40 on Craigslist.



    I also raised the hood, in part of a 3 way attempt to lower engine temps:



    And lastly for the exterior, a current picture of the bedliner I put on in August of last year.

    Moving onto the interior, starting from the front:



    Added a new blingy thing. Holds a pair of 2" gauges (still need to get a second gauge) as well as two switches.



    Right now, all thats wired is the top switch, which controls my electric cooling fan, also part of that 3 way attempt to lower engine temps. The voltmeter is for my unfinished (read: infantile idea stage) dual battery setup.

    Moving to the rear, which I know is what you all have been waiting for:



    Please disregard the drawing pad, I'm an art student, and have no better place to put that.

    Table out:



    Pins I've put in to keep the table from sliding out and hitting the inside of the hatch (which was about to drive me insane) :



    Just to give you an idea of how much it sticks out from the rear:



    and lastly, and updated view of my sticker collection.

    Relatively small update:

    I converted the two Hella 500's on my bumper to HID the other day. I went with a 6000K color temperature. They work great, except for the small problem of one of the ballasts dying after 1 use. So I need to send in the bad ballast for a warranty replacement. But on the bright side, (no pun intended) the one working HID washes out both headlights without a problem. I used to think my headlights were really white, they're almost yellow compared to the HIDs.

    Funny, I had that exact mountain goat on my jeep. You are now the 4th person I have seen with it. I believe It came with some adventure clothing I purchased, made by a swiss(?) company. We must all have thought the same thing when we first opened it- perfect for the Jeep.
