Nope. Only if I crank the wheel. It's good for daily. Yes not enough room to do anything extreme. The lift is coming this summer.

I painted my sound bar fusion green, looks sweet with the tan rollbars

This is exactly what I needed to see. Thanks so much for the picture and list of bulbs.

I think it turned out great. It's all about how you prep the dash first. Rough it up with some sand paper and use acetone to clean it. I think I used three coats because I wanted it on thick.

Scrub brush works, but the real issue is you're worried about cleaning your Jeep

I self-lined my tub with a spray in liner and it works for me. Durable enough for dogs, tools, parts in the back (removed my rear seat too), but easy enough to clean. I just wash mine out when it's filthy. However, this Jeep doesn't get detailed.

Here's what I ended up with. Bed lined everything and then painted over the bed liner is some spots with red paint to match the exterior. Also bed lined my door handles. Oh and I sprayed my Skid Row steering box. Took about an hour and cost me 15 bucks.

How does the paint hold up over the bedliner?

That's what I was worried about. It actually is holding up well. I put several coats on as well. Give me about a month and I'll get back to you.

i just removed the fenders to do it, made it alot easier to clean up. rear ones are somewhat of a pain to pull but not bad
