Looks great, a good idea would be to colour the embossed jeep logo on the side in black, that would make it pop and would look great !!!

HI JC,
Congratulations on completing stage 1 of your buildup. Your Wrangler is one killer looking machine. The new color also looks stunning. Will be following your thread for more updates.

Yes more pics to follow.

Default Wrangler first time offroading after getting lift kit accompanied by LR Discovery

Last week I took the wrangler offroad for the first time after lifting it. We went in two vehicles, Wrangler and my Land Rover Discovery.

We could take pics only during the last half hour since it was too hot and dusty to get out and click pics.Temperature was about 39 degrees.

Sorry for the quality of pics, my friend was taking pics and he was clicking with wrong settings and it was late evening and light was also less.

To be Continued....

Shibu,
Great looking 4x4's! I love your discovery, specially this model. Later models with all independent suspension became car sort of vehicles. Your jeep is looking cool. i doubt that your wheel will rub under full articulation. Please consider atleast 2 inch lift to accomodate those tyres

Hi Parm,
Jeep is still in same condition. The rear crank shaft oil seal is busted and they replaced it thrice and the leak persists. And they suspect that there is a step or a groove on the crank and needs to be replaced :(

Hi Vinod,
Mine is a special edition discovery series-1. Me too love this shape. Dont like the newer ones for same reason.
Regarding the Jeep I think you did not read my full thread... it is already lifted with 2.5" lift kit. But with 33"tyres you wont notice the lift. All I need is to replace the fender flares so that tyres will not rub under articulation.
