Four days flat is still a bit unbelievable.

Personally, I did not like the colour.The finish is great though. What did yo do with the discs which came along with the Jeep, Is it up for sale.

Cheers,

You guys got to see this beast in person. D-A-R-N imposing. Pictures don't do her justice at all.

Try to get clear lamps for your head lamps too. They look a bit out of place.

Default You sure do have "extreme power"

It is mind blowing on several counts!! How the heck did you manage to do all this work in 4 days??

And, it looks totally amazing!! and you say the ride offroad is fantastic!

Khudos bro.. you deserve some kind of trophy for this accomplishment.
