teal thunder, you should paint your bezels! love the black grill btw!

Tndz- I had those mirrors on my jeep for a few months and they are greatm I had mine mounted on a swivel on the windshield bracket, so they could swing in on trails. I currently run with no outside mirrors.

mine has it. i think it would look mean on your jeep, because of the grill. it seems like too much accent against the black IMO. but really what matters is your opinion, it is your jeep! haha.

HAHA thats how i was for almost 6 months straight, my rig was so dirty, but then monsoon season came and my jeep got caught in a storm, not once but twice, with no doors on, luckily i had my bikin top on to help a little, so after that i decided to just put the hard top on till after monsoon season. and another shitty thing is that my jeep cant fit in the garage, its to tall! WTF lol

yea the only thing that really mattered to me was the seats and steering wheel electricals, cb radio, and all cd deck and all that stuff. but what i ended up doing, was running into the rain, through my hard doors on real quick and sliding the seats all the way forward, this block all the electrical from getting wet, along with my seat cushions.

For $2 I wired my factory lockers to work in 4 HI.
Nice.

I love the newer seat height adjustment in the newer jeeps.

What in your opinion are the benefits of running the lockers in 4 hi?

I just bought my 07. Looking into the grill mod, looks awesome

I've been watching this thread and reading every mod posted on here, and I have to say I like post #3 the best for my next minor mod
Most definitely cheaper than new connecting links.

I'm cheap so I do cheap fabs.

Ammo can under the hood
Ammo can center console
Painted the headlight bezels black
I trimmed the fender flares
Painted my center dash bezel green
Angled my front stock bumper
Bolted four pvc pipes to the front for rod holders.
I used rattle can bed liner to do the inside of the tub as well as the grille and front fenders. I plan to do the whole exterior soon.

It's one of them thingsI just got to get around to.
The interior has held up great for a few years and the grille has done so for months now. My Jeep is so scratched up I figure what the heck.

I removed the license plate holder and mounted my tag directly to the Jeep, bending it around the side a little.
I put in a Oooga horn too.

been wanting to see this done, i was thinking of using plastidip on my fender flares, i bedlined them first then tried sanding the bed liner off to Krylon Fusion them but i sanded a little too far so their all fudged up, you think the plasti-dip would hold up on the flares?
