First Jeep

Pulled the trigger on a 2013 JKS on Thursday. Wanted to thank everyone on here for all of the great information. You guys rock! She is pretty basic, but that won't last too long!

Thanks for the kind words guys and gals! BonesBrigade- nice transformation! Did you remove your grill to plastidip? Considering doing this. Any advice? Plan on doing the wheels today. Should do until I can buy wheels and tires this spring!

Wheels look good

How many cans/long did it take you to plasti-dip them? That's the first thing I'm gonna do when I pick my Wrangler up next month.

MSpiegel00----I plasti-dipped my wheels today. It took close to 4 cans, but you could put it on a little thicker. It took me and a friend about 3 hours including peeling one and starting it over. We also were in no hurry, just hanging out. Hope that helps. Good luck with the purchase!

CDBillet - Yes, removed the grill. It is not very difficult and worth the extra time it takes.

MSpiege100 - Thank you very much. I put four coats of dip on all five of my wheels and the grill. I took plenty of time between applications and it took about 6 hours.
