Only a handful of mods in the first month, including the Fab Fours Stubby and Warn winch.

Of course, with the new bumper and winch some flexing was in order...

The Top Lift Pro makes quick work of top removal and storage.

Hood struts from Redline Racing make it easy to pop the hood. No need to bother with the hood support anymore.

Lots of posing, fully dressed and naked, even before Magnus was lifted and fitted with new tires.

The Diabolical Slipstream provides significant advantages in security and utility for the rear cargo area.

The dash bar and assorted phone, GoPro and radio mounts are essential kit for wheeling.

With a Borla exhaust, Magnus brings a throaty rumble to the meetups, even though it's still the 3.6 under the hood.

Synthetic winch line is oh so much lighter. And the Warn epic winch hook completes the look. Replacing that boring factory plate with the matching Fab Fours sway bar cover cleans up the undercarriage as well.

With a Metalcloak Game Changer 3.5 lift and Mickey Thompson 37s, Magnus is finally starting to earn the name. Special thanks to Baldy's Jeep Shop for the guidance on this part of the build.

Regearing to 5.13 means that Magnus can maintain 8th gear at highway speeds. Baldy's Jeep Shop does some incredible work here with the regearing!

New badges and name tags can go on now. Magnus has earned the name. But there's still more to come!
