That looks like a bullet to me. Look at the large gear box & front shocks.

As Spike suggested, do something to beef up the spare wheel mount on that door. During offroading, the rear tail lights may get damaged, so are you planning to add some more tail lights as there are holes left besides the door level.
Those holes were for the stock red reflectors will put those on once i get them.

OT- Is that a harley in first two pictures?

Regards

Pranav
This was the only soft top that i could find, any way its going to be taken off very soon.

3. Haven't you placed rubber beadings between the grille and fender?
4. I believe your spare wheel mounting bracket is non-army type, if yes then get an army type bracket or your tailgate will crack.

Spike
Thanks spike.

1 the tail pipe is bent and will be worked on soon
2 not sure about this, are you talking about the lock between the grill before you pop the hood , thats there.
3 i dint know there was a beading there , well this is still a wip will look at getting this done.
4 this is the stock 99 tail gate , i will have to get one of the new 550 model tail gate, will wait till this cracks

Excellent taste, David! Your Jeep's looking better than new. Gotta appreciate the effort that goes into the small touches...for eg, the rear lights, positioning of the no. plate and black wheels. The colours looking fab too.

Sorry if I missed it, but where did you get her painted again?

David i am fabricating a cantilever frame tailgate for alfa kilo's jeep which will bolt on the rear cross member via a rectangular cross section pipe.

It will be designed to hold a large tire upto 31" with ease as well as a high lift jack without sagging.

The jeep looks awesome!

One word of advice though...get rid of the rear and front side steps and the rear cross member bumper's...or the terrain will do it for you
