    The first time youll be able to get this achivement is once you have taken over the "Safeword" stronghold. I also recommend you do it there as this will be the cheapest one to upgrade (i think it was just 60.000$ in total compared to later stongholds where you have to pay the same amount for once upgrading it). Buy both of the upgrades and the achievement will be yours.

    Skeptical MarioI also have never seen the option to upgrade (at Safeword). Should it be in the crib menu? Do you need to be the session host in co-op, or playing alone?

    Gamer186You need to enter the stronghold press Y and you should find the option "stronghold customisation" somewhere in your crib customisation menu. Also i did all achievements for this game solo if that helps you.

    Tip make a save before customising the Stronghold incase the achievement doesnt pop first time.

    The cheapest stronghold to fully upgrade is the Safeword Stronghold unlocked part way through Act 2.

    Safeword is located on the far right island in the Morning Star 'Rosenoaks' region (It will be listed as a crib) and can be accessed from either the helipad or the garage, just head for the elevator to the 'Penthouse'.

    Once inside the Penthouse press cn_Y to bring up the Crib Customisation menu and enter then enter the 'Stronghold Customisation' from here there are two upgrades which both need to be purchased.
    Upgrade 1 costs $20,000 and Upgrade 2 costs $40,000 so you will need a total of $60,000 to unlock the achievement.

    Purchase both upgrades and the achievement will pop.

    Here's a video demonstrating entering from the garage.

    This isn't as much a solution but more of a warning.

    If you are doing Co-op then if you are not hosting it, you will NOT be able to Customize Strongholds, only the host can do it and get the achievement which is a right pain in the arse

    b0seijuEven though this is true, you can after completing the first mission, skip all other missions till you get the safeword stronghold.
