Five weeks, 5000 miles and $5000 in aftermarket mods, and we're just getting started. It's Jeep thing.

Was getting some weird glare out there, hopefully these fit the bill. Can try to take some more if this isn't what you were asking. No problem.

Can't decide if I want to remove, relocate or leave alone the "jeeps" yet so staying put for now. Trail badge can stay put. Not to mention what my plan for the tailgate holes would be...

yes, fyi the tailgate "jeep" leaves holes when removed if unaware. Good fixes out there though, creative people on this forum.

Jeep should make a hood stamped with "WILLYS" on it. That would be a true throwback to me. (I know... much cheaper to put a $3 decal on it). If Chevy and Ford can stamp tailgates I think FCA/Stellanis or whoever they are now can throw in some more throwback.

85-89 USMC. Started with Jeep M151 then went to Hummers. All numbers and letters were painted on. Nothing stamped. That being said it would be awesome to have the hood stamped.

3000 miles as of yesterday. Did a wash and wax (Meguiars Ultimate Liquid wax. The amount of water that is held in every joint on Jeeps is amazing. After drying it I used the leaf blower to blow out everything before waxing. The shade this morning doesn't really show of the shine but it's super smooth now. Maybe later today I can get one in the sun.

That's a beauty, @Sleighman ! I was really torn between Snaz and Sarge for mine. That's a gorgeous color on the Willys package.

Question: since I’m a new Jeeper and this is my first real 4wd vehicle; how much “wheel’n” can my stock Willys do? I’ve seen videos of the JTR pulling off some sic stuff, but I haven’t been able to find anything showing the Willys off-roading it. Anyone have any pics, videos, or just stories?

Or 3-D stencil font letters?

How intense of off-roading are you planning? A stock Sport is a very capable vehicle, but if you're serious about tackling the toughest terrains things like sway bar disco make a huge difference.

I agree with you. But I needed a better offset for fatter tires. I went with Morphic wheels from quadratech. Copy of the Willys wheel. This is what Jeep should have done with that wheel. 17x8.5 with +10 Offset. Perfect with 285/75/17 also marked 34 x 11.5.

You got a spacer lift on that bad boy?
