On my soft top, a little dawn and a scrub brush went a long way. Still not a mod, and but very cheap and easy with great results!

I see what you did there. You must work in late night TV advertising! Before pic: frown and shoot it in the dark. After pic: smile and place in sunlight!

Nice Jeep BTW.

No sir. Not really a fan of any stock "sport cage" doesn't really protect you much since there's no frame tie ins.

Before I installed my RR tie rod, I preped and sprayed it with a wheel paint. It looks metallic grey and not shiny. Good stuff. I'm not into the neon green and bright colors.
