Celticon underseat amp bracket and War Pig Off Road is born!

His first jeep project was a passenger seat mounting bracket for Celticon’s amp!  It turned out so well, we decided it was time to officially create War Pig Off Road and start developing some really useful mods for jeepers that weren’t too complicated or too expensive.

We want to provide solutions for those things you wish you’d have thought of yourself or things you REALLY want but haven’t been able to find anywhere else.  If there’s a mod idea floating around in your head, let us know about it!  Maybe we can come up with the solution!

Metal fab time with a Hobart 190 and SWAG OffRoad Finger Brake

In September 2014 Mike was feeling the itch to start creating his own mods. He’d been considering it since he installed his amp and backup camera in 2013 and couldn’t find any aftermarket brackets he liked. Plus after spending hours on jeep/shop forums, he had lots of ideas for things to make! He started out with a Hobart 190 MIG Welder and a metal band saw. He quickly realized that to make lots of the things he was interested in he’d also need to add a shop press and a finger brake, which he got for Christmas. He started out making some basic, useful things for around the house.

Hydro Blue Freedom Jeep JK Unlimited Comes Home!

Not to be left out of the fun, Helen decided she needed a jeep of her own!  In September 2013 she placed an order for her very OWN Hydro Blue Freedom Edition Unlimited, which was ordered sight unseen.  It was a new color for 2014 Wranglers and when ordering opened there weren’t even any promotional pictures of the color available!

He was finally delivered on October 29, 2013, after being held hostage in the Kirby rail yard for ELEVEN long days.  He was immediately christened Celticon, for Helen’s love of all things Irish.  His first REAL mod was another set of Welcome Distributing’s GraBars™, even though he was still a baby.

SpiderWebShade, Pioneer 8500, ACE Engineering Pro Rear Bumper and more!

Future updates took a little bit longer to decide what else he needed and wanted.  Father’s day he got a new SpiderWebShade.  August was a stereo overhaul before the drive for our move to Texas: Pioneer 8500 head unit, amp, Infiniti BassLink sub, backup camera and Polk speakers all around.  September saw a new friend for War Pig in the works, but more on that later.  In early December it was time for ANOTHER new set of upgraded shoes, Rugged Ridge XHC 17″ wheels wrapped in 315/70-R17 DuraTracs.  For Christmas 2013 he got a new ACE Engineering Pro Rear Bumper and Cargo Rack.
