The OR-Fab doors look great. Are they in the bike black? I have wrinkle black but those look nice.

Thanks! Honestly it just said "black" when I ordered them. I actually quite like the gloss black on my jeep because its pretty damn close to the stock paint, so it looks slick. Typically I'm not a fan of shiny stuff because I scratch it easily, but I think these are just right.

I wasn't sure if I would like the gloss black, but they look really sharp on your jeep. Good choice.

And the jeep build is looking great.

Here is a picture of my other favorite part about these doors... still being able to use my carabiner trick to prevent seat belt flapping!

^^ I have to say I like your idea for preventing seat belt flapping better than my seat belt pad. The pad keeps the seat belt from retracting sometimes, but with the carabiner it looks like the belt would move more freely. I may have to try that.

[QUOTE=TexasJeepGirl;3690361]Well I've decided on a permanent in-jeep location for my spare. No more stock spare carrier for me! And now I will have more money for other mods since I will be buying just the plain PSC Brawlerlite II rear bumper, and not the tire carrier version.

(If you are wondering where my safari straps went, I upgraded to the extended cage! Will be here Wednesday!)

Awesome.

And SS extended are the way to go. I run mine all year, even under the soft top in winter.

Girl, you make Texas proud.

Today I ordered a Synergy Chromoly Tie Rod which was badly needed! I am currently sporting the "self-made high-clearance" stock tie rod... haha!

Did you spray paint the accents or use something else. I like the way they look.

Saw this in the what did you do today thread. That looks pretty awesome! I haven't really liked the color shades at all but that one looks pretty sweet! Love it with the safari straps.

Finally got my rear bumper back from powdercoat and will be installing sometime in the next few days!

My new tie rod will also be here some time this week. After playing the "back ordered game" with Q-tec I cancelled and called Northridge. Those guys are so awesome, I'll never use anyone else again.

Several companies have them. Rebel Offroad and Pixel decals, off the top of my head.

FINALLY! BFH rear bumper is installed! Boy do I love it. My Poison Spyder bumpers are easily my favorite mods. Great stuff. It was a bit of a pain sawing off the rear crossmember (cheap sawzall and dremel cutting wheels), and getting the new nutplate clamps to line up, but all in all not a bad project. Now I just need to trim my exhaust pipe.
