I masked everything else off, then applied about 3 light coats and 2 medium coats of paint (about 1 & 1/3 cans). Didn't know how the bright red would look against the Winter Chill, but I'm really satisfied with the results. It isn't a perfect match to the red Rubicon shocks, but it provides a nice contract to blacked out wheels & bumpers.
I like that!

Co-worker to me yesterday: "I saw you drivin' that Jeep the other day, top down, music up. Looked like so much fun. That thing must make you feel 10 years younger!"

Me: "It is definitely fun but maybe the problem is that your vehicle makes you feel 10 years older."

Co-worker: "I drive a Lexus."

Me: "Yup, that'll do it!"

I don't think she was impressed with me

Dropped by the U.S.S North Carolina looking for any alligators out yet and took this pic. The blue camo on the ship goes good with the WC.

i added the smittybilt headlight guards this week. saw them on a friends jeep and liked them. now deciding what if anything to do with the front signal lights? go clear or get the matching guards. they also have fog light guards. the fender light is a pain i have read to get to. might leave that alone.

Here is the link for the wheel stripes. If you order make sure you tell them what color you want in the comment section. Really not a bad deal for $10

Looks Great! Really like the light bar with the stock front bumper.

I am still a fan of the orange wheel stripes...really makes it pop against the black wheels--cheap/easy mod, no quality issues yet and lots of compliments.

Its a Rugged Ridge light bar, bought mine up here in the great white north. Check out their website or Jeep stealers parts sell them. Only mod was I had to trim the valance that fits behind the bumper. trimmed about 2.5" inches from each end with a utility knife. No biggie and a easy install.

I also got the RR light bar on my daughter's Arctic 2007-2012 Jeep Wrangler JK Bumper Mounted Light Bar Mopar / Rugged Ridge OEM | eBay

I didn't have to trim anything, and certainly not the plastic piece sits between the grill & bumper, the brackets sort to slided in between the gaps. Though it was a pain getting the nuts in the frame cavities.

Just curious if there was a different run, the P/N on mine was 123220RR/K6860793. Only put 1 pair of Hella on and still debating if I were to buy another pair just to use one....
