  • The Spider LJ

    I have this build on two other sites. so some of you might have seen this already. Thought I should post this here since it's mainly built around AEV products/Ideas (expedition)

    Last year. I flew out to NY to pick up this LJ that had all the factory equipment I wanted.



    drove it back to Denver.



    and stopped here on our back



    then got home and bought half doors, soft uppers and a soft top. and got rid of the chrome on the gril.

    got JK axles for it





    and painted the hardtop inside out. Two tone gray on the inside and non gloss dark metallic gray on the outside.

      I want the Jeep to look as stock as possible yet modded.

      so I took the JK Moabs I had and had them sand blasted! and powder coated.

            another far away shot showing the JK axle and LJ in the background



            I ordered 5 AEV center caps and installed them instead of the Jeep ones <-- those will be painted to match the Jeep and the AEV logo will be black



            Here are the half doors at the body shop. was testing different grays (flat and metallic)



            Rear brakes
