A couple mods with pics

Hey everyone... just been tinkering around with the jeep last couple days... So far, put in the cb, and antenna... (real nice place to mount behind the spare), put on rubicon coils and shocks, and nightshaded my signal lights and break lights... and cleaned up the black plastic with back to black (still have to clean front bumper... oops... forgot that one till i just seen it in the pics

Tell me what u think...
p.s. the picture of the jeep in nature is before i did anything...
Does anyone think the jeep looks taller with the new shocks and coils?

looks good man. loving that color

it may sit up a little higher, but that would be cause your old springs were probably sagging a bit, and the rubi take offs arnt.

Looks nice Be careful rubbing against the flares with the B2B on them, it'll rub off on your clothes.... Love the tinted markers, and of course the color is fantastic Ditch the steps, they'll get hung up on junk offroad.....

If you have fender flares that are old and grey, instead of using b2b or other oils, try using a heat gun on them. TJ flares are a soft plastic that responds well to heat. Don't heat them till they melt, just enough and you will see them change color. Keep running the heat gun evenly and you will see them change before your eyes. Done this to about 4 sets of flares on TJs and they come out pretty good. Only works on tj stock flares that I know of...just thought I'd throw that out there...sorry about getting off track...I love that color on your jeep...nice rig...

Thanks all... I might try the heat gun once the b2b wears off... just wanted to see if it would make a difference...

I would take the steps off, but well i have a couple short friends that are always with me that use them so, thats out of the picture right now... i will be loosening off the bolts though so that way i can take them off when ever i would like...

Just becuase...

Well to put it bluntly... thats a saying that i always use... and everybody konws me for it... and i really think it suits the jeep... why did u pull a chadwick????

"Just becuase..."

It looks great. Nice lenes, good height. The only thing I noticed was the spare....If I were you I get a EXACT matching spare tire. If you have a differant size spare and need to use it your not gonna like what it could do.

Like the front Lenses being dark. not a fan of tinting tail lights....since they show morons behind you that you are braking.


and just a note - this is a pet peeve of mine, so I have to point it out.
Brakes vs Breaks
Brakes - those things that stop your car
Breaks- something broken.

They are not the same.

Id just take the jugs off the back and front, the side step, and id call it great! It does look good though.

It'll look higher up with the side steps off.

You can see what the front ones look like on my profile. There's a close up shot showing my tires.
