    Umm, looks like the original reached 99 pages and was closed for more replies. So keep posting here!

    I had tint done to front 2 windows, bug deflector installed, wayout style wrap installed, tires cleaned. 303 applied to tonneau cover.

    EDIT: forgot to mention possibly the most important mod, ceramic coated grille, grille guard, and double ceramic coated windshield. FU bugs! Try sticking to all my ceramic now..... Stupid bugs.

    Woah, I get to be one of the first posts on this thread!

    I did a lot to it today, being my first day off with the Gladiator. I put on my Rydonair radio antenna, Mopar Door Sill Guards, put my drain plug in my floor mats, put in a cubby hole for my wife's stuff.

    Wife added her hat to the Jeep when I have the top off, and I put in all my stuff I had in my Ram truck. Fits perfectly, now I just need an air compressor for off road trips.

    I also wanted to show how much room is behind the seat, I put my Cherokee Trailhawk Trail Bag in there, which has my tow strap, and gloves.

    My dog Pia also got to sit in the Gladiator for the first time.

    Do you know if the wrap was cut free hand or did they use no knife tape?

    Thanks

    the tailgate was cut on some expensive cnc cutter i think, the area behind the lights was done with no knife tape. but now that i look at that photo more carefully, maybe it was all cut by no knife? i dunno. they did show me where the tailgate and rear fender panels didn't line up so they had to do a little bit of an angled part.

    It is a little soft sided. But for the cost and the purpose of getting the groceries home without chasing them all over the bed of the truck it worked fine.

    Completed modding out my Rubi's partner in crime. The overland trailer is now ready for off road use.

    Flipped the axles
    Cut off the fenders and angle iron brackets sold the original tires
    Welded on new angle iron, flat steel (foot steps), and 16 ga fenders (https://www.etrailer.com/dept-pg-Trailer_Fenders-pt-16~1|2_Inch_Wheels.aspx). Will be able to upgrade to 35" tires if I decide to go that route.
    Mounted up some Gladiator offtake wheels and 33" Falcon MT's.
    Cut off the Ball Hitch
    Welded on a new Lock N Roll Hitch https://locknroll.com/
    Painted over all my UGLY welds

    Waiting on delivery of a custom fitted tarp https://www.coversandall.com/?utm_source=transactional_email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=header.
    Will add Maxtrax and Rotopax mounts this weekend

    Once I add the 2" lift to my GEEP the system should be fairly level.

    Time to go!
