    BlackKnight's Commando Build

    Well, I figured my build was going to be over the course of years. Though some of the bigger things will still likely be years, like: Junkyard custom dana 60s, 37s, 4inch lift. I'm starting a thread now as I have the bug. The bug that will only be controlled by my wife slapping me upside the head now and then for spending too much...

    Here is the list so far:
    2013 JKUS Commando Green
    Rugged Ridge hood protector
    Rugged Ridge door sill protectors
    Rugged Ridge door window guards
    Quadratrac Floor mats (Front/Back/Cargo)
    Tuffy Door Locks
    Tuffy Hood Lock

    As above installed:

    Just recieved and will be installed this weekend.
    ORE Rear Bumper Facia
    ORE Rear Frame D ring mounts
    Rugged Ridge Tow Hitch w/electrical Harness

    IMG_0123small.jpgIMG_0124small.jpg

    To Carry my and my wife's bikes a Thule Parkway 2 (2" hitch mount two bike rack, not pictured)

    Just Purchased from Home Depot:
    Self etching primer, high temp Satin black automotive paint, one small canister of acetone for paint prep and cleaning, for the Aluminum ORE Facia
    Rustoleum "oregano green" satin enamel paint, 4 pieces of aluminum "gutter guard" a bundle of zip ties and small square fasteners for them to make a set of grill inserts color matched to the jeep

    Also purchased but over the winter: 1 case of Plasitdip Flat Black for Rims, and front grill.

    Plans for this weekend (weather permitting)
    Remove stock rear bumper and hook
    Paint the pinch seams on the back end of the jeep
    Install Ds and rear facia
    Time and wife permitting, Pull, clean and plastidip the rims
    even more time and wife permitting, Pull the grill and Plastidip that as well.

    Slight delay. After pulling all the install hardware out for the d ring hangers. Found something missing. Small screw plates for the rear bolts are not present. I'll give Mel and the guys over at EVO a quick call, their customer service is top notch, I'm sure the will be on their way ASAP.

    Facia bolted in with the stock bumper bolts. Now just waiting on the bolt plates to finish the D's.

    Also when I do the final assembly I'll be painting the pinch seam (flat black to match the other hardware)

    How do you like the shorty antenna? I've so many negative comments about the reception with them

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
