    Project Scar To Benefit The Travis Mills Foundation

    We have a unique opportunity to give back to those who have given so much for our freedom. We are building a 2006 Jeep TJ Rubicon that will be sold to benefit the Travis Mills Foundation. This build will be chronicalled here along with on YouTube. as we move forward we will post videos and pictures here.



    To date, we have done a lot of planning and we will be installing a Metalcloak 4.5" long arm kit with full body armor, MC fenders, and skids. We plan to run 37" tires on Trail Rated Beadlocks. We have some very cool seat covers coming from Wet Okole!

    Right now we are doing some teardown and cleaning in preparation for starting. We have some awesome plans that should come together soon as we go through this build.

    Today we removed the rear fender flares and the Rubicon "sliders". Most everything came off pretty easily. We have a great Jeep with only 55K miles.

    It looks funny without flares!

    Yes, it will have Tube doors and it was a struggle to pick the best TJ Tube doors out. we wanted to have a normal door handle to open them, not a pin. We wanted the mirror to fit correctly and the finish to be good. Rugged Ridge seems to have the best ones that we could find via specs. We have those coming this week.

    Humbled, honored, and speechless. It is an honor to be able to give back to those who have served for our freedoms. Wet Okole did a customer graphic for the seat covers for us. People can make a difference. We can make a difference. These seat covers for the TJ look amazing and we cannot wait to bring this project to everyone.

    I cannot be more excited to install this. I know many would have issues cutting their Jeep hood wide open. We are looking at this as a transformation from meh to awesome!

    I am assuming the hood vents are black... That is going to be an awesome accent. Can't wait to see how this build turns out.

    Getting ready to make some cuts on the hood. Seeing how everything lines up. This changes the look of the jeep completely!
