A 2016 Jeep Wrangler Jk Unlimited Willy S build by @ThunderKat08

I've always loved jeeps. In 2007 I traded my 1998 TJ and it was one of my biggest regrets. In 2015 I knew I'd gone long enough without a jeep and began my search for a JKU. The price was shocking. It took all summer and fall, but I saved enough money to buy a special ordered 2016. I planned to order white, but when I went to place the down payment on the order there happened to be a hydro blue on the lot and that was all it took for the "white" to go out the window! I've loved my Hydro Blue JKU every day since! I ordered a Willy's largely because I had zero intentions of modifying my jeep. We all see how well that went. I've since been sponsored for a SEMA build and have been experiencing the opportunity I could only wish for! This build is for me. It's to challenge and teach myself, but also to show others that you don't have to know the off-road and automotive world from a young age, you can jump in anytime you want and start learning! The name "ThunderKat" comes from the 2 nicknames my parents call me. "ThunderFoot" from my Dad and "Kitten" from my Mom
