Newbie from Texas w/ Accessories Question...Howdy!
Howdy from Texas!
(For those that thought the Ol' Texas Draw has left Texas)
As of this past Friday, I'm a proud first owner of a 2013 Sport "Crush". See pic below...
Before my Jeep purchase, I researched the threads of this forum reading various experiences from member to member and I can say this forum was more "informed" than other related forums on the web. The information learned from this forum was a helpful resource upon entering the dreaded dealership. As a result, my experience was pretty positive and I'm convinced part of it was due of the Jeep knowledge I received at this forum.
I look forward to reading and learning from the knowledge base of experience of this forum, whether it be accessories, maintenance, the Do's/Dont's of Wrangler ownership and to keep up to date in the world of Jeep. Hopefully, I will be able to assist other forum members over time too.
As a new Jeep owner, I've started looking at external accessories (imagine that!) for my "Crush" for appearance and protection/security. Having said this, I'm looking for a few items in either Texture or Crinkled Flat Black:
Locking Fuel Door Protector Cages
Headlamp Protector Cages
Tailamp Protector Cages
Parking Light Protector Cage
Side Markers Protector Cage
All the protectors I've found are smooth Satin Black, but nothing in Texture Black. I've looked at Rugged Ridge and various other manufacturers, but no luck. Also, I'm having trouble finding the type of protective lens cage which "stands off" of the rear Tailamps. Most are attached directly to the lamp cover.
Anyone have any other manufacturer ideas/suggestions other than Mopar?
Mopar tends to want more pennies than most everyone else in the game.
Thanks for any assistance!
