I didn't like the fat fender flairs of the rubicon.
So I figured I'd make it into a Wrangler lol
The fit on my CC-01 just looked goofy.
So lol

From this.



To this.



I like it much better narrowed.
This is going to be my beater body when its done cheesygrin

Well without rebuilding the floorboards this is the best I could get it to sit on the CC-01.
Looks pretty good I think.











Little more work on the interior and it will be ready to get muddy
