I dont think OD against your gloss paint would work.

See what they look like bedlined first, might not look bad since you have a dark color Jeep. But as for my vote, tan doors and tan fog lights.

Well like I was wondering how the pin fit the hitch. The hole where the pin goes in mine is too small...

Leave the light bar itself black is what I'm thinking. This is the worse part about doing a camp jeep is picking the damn colors lol

Ok so here is my cheap idea... Mount a mag lite. However mount it on the outside of my hard top , in reach when wheeling. It is both a flash light and an "auxiliary" light!! I just have to get my self to a store and get the mount. What do you guys think?

Not to be a debby downer. But in a roll that thing will kill you. Anything unsecured in the cab will become a missile, and sharp pointy objects aren't on the top of my hit-me-in-the-head list.

Haha thank god we don't have much theft in my town. I live in a pretty crowed city and our front door is maybe 15 feet from the sidewalk. I forgot my laptop on the porch one day and left it there for almost 4 houra before I remembered I left it there! There has been an increase of people stealing catalic converters out of older Toyota's though!

I live in a very safe community of 2000 and I wouldn't leave anything not bolted down, I also frequently travel to a much more dangerous city though, I'd be interested to how your gonna get a mag lite to stay without falling off while driving

I think he used the force!! Anyone raise their front seats? I used aluminum stock I had in my garage. Drilled hole and got new bolts. Cost $10. Feels much better sitting up another inch. You can see better offroading too.
