The one mod which is my favorite I just had the wrangler covered in 3M Pro paint Protection film, that stuff is Amazing, if you care about your paint every Jeep should have it (especially Black). The mod I get the most compliments on are the GoRhino Dominator D-6 Sliders with removable drop steps and the RSE Rocker Guards

I’d have to say these Rugged Ridge Tube Doors are SICK and the Cherry Red @AlienSunshade sets off the GCM color.

I get the most complements on both.

Daaaang dude what a sick build! You've dropped some serious chedda, love your gear/mod list! Your ride looks great and it sounds like you've really prioritized making her an off-road beast!! Few questions for ya: 1) what exactly is a tazer? I keep hearing about them but havent yet done a deep dive into it... 2) how do you like your Coopers, and what experience do you have with other tires to compare them to? How difficult was it to accommodate 37s with a 2" lift? Any addl mods required to make it work?

Brother you already know I have some black JL envy going on with your build from previous! I think yours looks so good and I'm still jelly of those RSE skins! Every day I'm closer to pulling the trigger on those... btw, talked to my local tint shop about the 3M protection film and they basically said good luck finding it lol guess I need to search near a bigger city :/

Your thread title doesn't specify Jeep. So, my favorite "mod" is my wife's pierced nipples. And my friends, that is the best modification I've ever seen. A close second though, is the customized Grateful Dead grille insert from Under The Sun Inserts. I was going to post pictures of both of my favorite modifications, but I couldn't quickly find the former.

Love that pumpkin color brother, you must turn heads everywhere you go! You've don't a great job, ride looks very clean yet still rugged. Btw I'm surprised you didn't mention that Mopar A pillar bracket for the lights, that looks sweet! At the same time, I'm over hear remembering all the random things I forgot to list haha anyway I am so much more likely to pick up those brackets after seeing them on yours... do you think you'll add any more lights to the side mounts?

I would definitely have to agree with you, those doors are so sick!! I saw at SEMA they had redesigned the latch mechanism, so I'm over here all envious thinking about how nice they must be! And the compliments are well deserved, you have an awesome ride with a very unique color (the granite one must either be hard to find or just way underrated), along with that alienshade! Are you using it as a flag in back as well or am I just lost? Never seen that before! Also, how are you liking the tailgate table? Seems like that could be really handy out camping, at the beach, etc. My only concern might be losing a little length for when your trunk is maxed out/trying to get the tailgate closed. Interested to know if the benefit outweighs the cost/sacrifice?

Bahahahaha I think you just broke the forum with that comment!! And I'm sure we will all be eagerly anticipating an update if ever you locate that photo :p All jokes aside, that insert is sick! Definitely one of a kind and I'm sure I won't be seeing any out on the road soon so I'll just assume it's you :)

Sidenote: I totally botched the manufacturer of my insert. It's from Under The Sun also, not "Sundown" lol

Thanks buddy!

There is a USMC Flag you can’t really see on the back left pillar. But from the spare that is the @AlienSunshade Exterior Trail Bag.

I love the Mopar Tailgate Table. It’s one of my most used Mods at the beach. It takes up literally (0) space and is very sturdy. It works perfectly with the JLU and I think it’s because it’s OEM. I’ve put stickers all over it over time from the items I’ve purchased that have come with them for the Jeep so it looks pretty cool now too haha

But wouldn’t that hurt your teeth though?
