Didn't read the whole thread but holy crap that Purple is just simply BEAUTIFUL. It is an awesome shade of purple. How durable are these wraps? I would imagine through the years they start to get torn up.
Someone else said it would last like 4 - 5 years, due to the expansion and contraction of the vinyl over the years. Then it would start cracking. But they were in the south west.

I am in LOVE with your JL! Please forgive me if this question has been asked but I've searched the thread for the name of the color and I haven't found it. I am going to wrapping my JK soon and I would love to have the same color done. By chance is it the 3M Royal Purple? Thank you!

It is guaranteed for 4 years. But it also protects the original paint. We will have to see how it plays out over the next few years. But in our opinion, it is well worth the look we achieved!

We contacted 4 Wheel Parts this past week concerning our order for the Bushwacker Jeep Max Coverage Pocket Style Fender Flares that we ordered in July. They informed us that these should ship from Bushwacker the first week of October. We think we are getting the first set out of production. That is based off of information obtained from Bushwacker.

At any rate, once these arrive, we will be installing them, as we already received one citation for having wheels that extend beyond the factory fender flares. We are not very excited that we have to add the flares, but we are definitely not going to resort to smaller wheels on the Jeep JL.

We will be posting photos of the install in detail. During the install we are also adding Lux Lighting Systems Monster Built To Fit LED Rock Lights. We ordered these in April, but decided to wait for the install until adding the new fender flares.

We are excited to share these mods with you as they happen. Stay tuned as more is to come!

After owning a 2013 JKUR for 5 years, we decided that it was time to upgrade to the new 2018 JlUR. We, felt it was important to share our experience with other JL owners out there, as we decided to do something totally off the wall. We were going to wrap the body in PURPLE vinyl.

We placed our order 2-16-2018 at Fury Motors, #carsbymandie, in Stillwater, MN. We have the most amazing dealership, as they decided to take on the task of finding a company to wrap the vehicle. This helped us, as it put burden into the hands of qualified people, rather than trying to do this ourselves.

We ordered a fully loaded JLUR with every option, other than the Smoker Group and the Hard Top Headliner. We did decide on Black Clear Coat with Tan Leather interior. We did not want the red dash option.

We were able to get into the "Order Tracking" system on this forum, which was totally awesome.
We followed our JLUR through the build process, all the way up to the delivery to our dealership. An amazing benefit of being part of JLWranglerforums.com.

Our vehicle arrived on 4-5-2018. Not bad, seeing how it was only 46 days from order to arrival. Of course, we had to stop at the dealership and take photos of the vehicle hours after it arrived.

That day the dealership also installed the Tailgate Reinforcement kit, knowing that we were going to add larger tires and wheels. The following day our JLUR went to Pristine Detail, located in St. Paul, MN. Pristine Detail had already dropped off color samples, so they were well aware of the color that we wanted.

Over the next couple of weeks, they dismantled pretty much every part of the exterior of our baby. The fenders, the window moldings, the door handles, the entire tailgate, etc. I think you get the drift. Then, they began to transform our black JLUR into something that is short of amazing.

Here are some of the photos taken during the wrapping process:

We stopped by a few days later to capture some additional images of the wrapping process:

Finally, on 4-30-2018, our JLUR was delivered back to the dealership. Upon arrival they began the process of putting 35" tires, (Goodyear Duratrac 315/70R17), onto the stock wheels and re-calibrated the speedometer for the larger tires. They added the winch and grill guard hoop and 7" Mopar OEM lights and mounts. They also finished the adding the additional two items for the tailgate reinforcement, The CHMSL relocation kit (Brake light), and the oversized spare tire carrier.
After a thorough washing and detailing, we finally got the call. Our new 2018 JLUR was ready for delivery. WOW, what an amazing process. They were awesome and the work has been nothing short of amazing. Here are the photos taken upon delivery and once we had the JLUR back home:

Our JLUR looks amazing. It far exceeded our expectations. The wrap is so original that when we drive down the road, so many people are gawking, When we pass another Wrangler owner, we can see the confusion on their faces! It is actually quite fun.

There are so many more mods coming. I encourage you all to continue to watch the process as it unravels!

Patrick & Wendy
What a sharp looking jeep!

It has been awhile since our last post. There are so many things in the coming weeks and months. But, Football season has put a bit of a damper on mods.

With that being said, today we added heated wiper blades. These are manufactured by a company called Everblades. With winter upon us, we needed to do something to help with the ice and snow that we get here in Minnesota.

The install was very easy and took about an hour. We removed the wiper arms from the Jeep. We then used a pry tool and removed the black plastic wiper tray. That came off very easy.

We ran the wires through opening into the engine compartment and determined the correct length that we would need to facilitate the new blades. We used zip-ties to secure the wires.

Next we used a 1/2" drill bit and made holes in the wiper tray. After inserting 3/8" black rubber grommets, we fed the wires through the grommets and replaced the wiper tray.

Next we grounded both of the ground wires and connected the "positive" lead to the orange "AUX" wire. This wire is controlled by AUX switch #3.

We programmed the switch to "Ignition" and turned them on for the first time! Everything worked wonderfully! Once we get some new snow and ice, we will post more photos!

Everblades has been a great company to work with. They shipped the blades fast. We did have to call, as they come pre-wired to a switch, which we chose not to use. Josh at Everblades was amazing and a world of help when I called and talked with him.

So, we are participating in our local Memorial Day parade tomorrow. With that being said, we removed the hard top and the doors. We had to add rearview mirror in accordance with state laws. Well, it looks awesome. Here are some photos!

Super nice!! I really like the purple.
Throw some Rouch Country tube doors on. They finish the look and you can mount up your OEM mirrors.
