    Painted the license plate holder emblem yesterday. Rest of the chrome should be gone by Friday with exception of the wheels. Also have a set of LE steps coming to use until I can find U steps.

    Getting there, chrome steps off. Only thing left is to have the mirrors Line-X'ed and swap the handles and all chrome will be gone other then wheels which will get replaced with Methods to match H3

    Hmmm...I've wondered the same thing. I think I'da called one VENGEANCE and the other RETRIBUTION...if I was into the whole PUNISHER-style names.

    But I'm sure there's a story behind it...

    Re: MustangGirl666's 2005 H2 Luxury Build Thread

    Got few items coming later next week. Found a Boulder Accessories winch bumper for $350 shipped. Also got a good deal on 4 OEM U Steps brand new in box for $300 shipped. Was going to order a RealWheels brush guard but they take up to 8 weeks to be built and delivered so I ordered a Ram Offroad over hood brush guard (got a discount because I had to wait so long with the back order) and will put the money towards winch and other mods. Dropping all 20 lights off next week to have all them professionally tinted. Next step is getting rid of the chrome rims and replace them with 17" black Method Standard and larger tires. After that winch and flares are on the to do list.

    It's a theme, to separate car from the rest and stand out. It started with my mustang and then I carried it to the H3 and now the H2.

    You've gotta piece it together (Amazon for the pucks and Fastenal for the bolts)...for a 1" inch (and maybe even a 2") you simply need the pucks and bolts. There's a thread here: http://www.clubhummeroffroad.com/for...ifting-a-Deuce

    For wheels I will be going with Black Method Standard wheels to match the H3. Still undecided on tires but I know they will be either 39.5" or 40"

    Hey, when u get your u steps. I suggest drilling a hole in the end of the threaded knob and putting a pad lock on it. Otherwise you might come out one day and they will be gone.

    Also, if you want to part with 2 of those le steps at some point, ill take them. I need them for the back since I cant find anyone who only wants to sell me two u steps.

    The major problem that we ran into is that the 6" long bolts are not threaded far enough. We needed another 1/2" of thread. We improvised by spacing the head of the bolt back 5/8".
    If you are gathering parts to do this, 5-1/2" long bolts would be perfect, or find 6" bolts that are threaded more.
    The OEM bolts are 5" long but fully threaded. If they were 1/2" longer we could have reused them. They thread into the body a long way.
