I have to agree. One of my favorites is my sticker. People in my town aren't to fond of it but that's because they all have stick families on the back of their mini vans

I have a "built not bought" going up the side of my windshield panel and then the one by my door says "yours may go fast but mine can go anywhere". Then the classic take your top off lol

Nice, I will probably just run giant lettering across the windshield that reads "ANIMALS TASTE GOOD" once my "HLDMYBR" plates arrive in the mail. For my car, I still need to send in for the complimentary "NWCHTHS" or similar.

Hopefully I can get some work done on the light bar this weekend. I am making it out of a fence post from Home Depot. I already have it measure out, now I just need to do some cutting and then wiring it up. I really wanted it above my windshield but I am not really fond of drilling above my windshield..so for now it will go on my hood under the hi lift and if I don't like it then I can always take it off!

Hahah try eBay! I just searched something like "nobody cares about your stick figure family" and a lot came up. Good luck! That's funny

Very nice.

Do you remember who made the rocker guards you had in the earlier pics, prior to installing the rock rails?

Like my steering? I taped off the bolts and just put cardboard behind all the steering and sprayed. I put newspaper around the tires on the inside so they wouldn't get any overspray. I used rustoleum flame red. Since it doesn't get much sun under there, I haven't touched it up since I did it two summers ago. I did my rear differential too

I do not. A buddy of mine sold them too me. They were just diamond plate that bolted to the tub. Wasn't much protection underneath except for like 6 inches

I'm going to hold off on this project but I would like to do it eventually..I want flush mounted tail lights. Found a set for like 70 bucks with reverse built in them. Now, question is I would like to keep my corner guards on but they don't have a round hole for these lights, they just have 3 little holes for the stock tail light bolts..I suppose I could just cut a hole in these plastic corner guards but kind of afraid of things like the whole thing cracking. Suggestions? Or better yet, anybody do this?

Right now, I'm looking for something like that to cover the holes when I take the cladding off my Sahara. The Sahara has this 5in wide cheesy cladding . I took one side off, and it's held on with a metal channel and there's holes everywhere. Most of the covers I see don't go all the way to the bottom of the door, which is what I need.

Rock rails are a part of the overall plan, but not right now.

That diamond plate went pretty close to the bottom of the door. Probably an inch or inch and a half from the bottom of the door. Just enough to fit the plastic door step guard. Check quadratec to be honest because he put those on when he first got the jeep and his parents bought him a lot of stuff from there.

If you're interested, I know rails aren't the plan for the moment for you but I bought mine for cheap, probably cheaper than what you would pay for that diamond plate. I can show you where I bought mine I currently have on if you want

So since I bought new flares I am going to take mine off this week. But Im debating if I should just throw them away or take them off, repaint and sell them. I'm not sure if someone would be interested because they are cut so they sorta give the flat fender look. Mhm

Thanks!

But I've found lot's of rock rails that'll cover it all up. I was hoping for something quick and cheap to hold me over.

I would check eBay. They have a lot of cheap rocker guards that stay on with tape so you won't have to add additional holes until you are ready to purchase what you really want. Not sure how high they go but it's worth looking at

So I got my light switches today. My last switches were like rectangle so the hole that was cut into the switch bezel was to big for these lights except for one of them so now I have to order some oem switch bezels before I can complete it but I got one done and I wired the switches up. Heres a few pics

Got the holes cut for the lights on the bar. Tomorrow I have to go buy another set of lights because I only bought one set. It's coming along! I'll probably drill the holes tomorrow to mount it and then maybe get to some wiring. I'll have to see because my CAI will be here tomorrow

Note: I sanded it down after these pics so the cuts look a lot cleaner than they look here
