This post/thread is a work in progress... as is the vehicle!! :LOL:

I need to format it better, and I'll be adding pictures over time.

Shameless Plug: https://www.jeepgladiatorforum.com/forum/forums/tortooga-custom-works.105/

Launch Edition in Bright White

Ordered on 4/4/2019 from Tri-City in Eden, NC
Arrived at Dealership on 6/19/2019
Shipped out to me on 6/25/2019
Received by me at home on 6/26/2019

The experience was great. I'd highly recommend Travis!

Vision
My vision for this build is a truck that would serve me for work (electrical/low voltage wiring), and for overlanding/camping. I may tow a travel trailer... not fully decided. It's got to be a jack of all trades...

Today I put in the sill guards, and installed the front license plate bracket. I also tried to make a locking mechanism for the soft roll up tonneau cover: [see detail thread]

I think it was easy. Took about 30 minutes. Removed some panel clips on the liner and you can get right at the screw that holds it in place. It's awkward if you have big hands. I found it easier to remove 2 10mm bolts that are also up front. But I can see how someone could do it without removing those.

Hello, I bought the Maximus 3 stealth plate bracket, but when I went to put it on, I have 4 bolts not the 3 that the bracket has. Any ideas?
