Mater Changes

So those of you who know me get the title My Jeep know as Mater is under the knife. I hate the cage it sits to high and I don't like the cab sitting so far back.

I cut the bubbled roof of and I'm going to replace it with a flat top. I also chopped the windshield 3". The hood and front fenders were stretched 14" years ago for tire clearance.

I moved the cab down 5" forward 6" and the grill back and down another 3".

The new stretch is only about 3". Way better. The LED light use to be over and above the winch.

I bought 100 ft of DOM for the new cage and not sure if it's going to be enough.
Got some 1.75 and some 1.50 both .180 wall.

Always liked your rig minus the cage. In for updates


EDIT: My cage used to be ugly as sin as well...glad we did the upgrades last summer.
