I stopped using my Hood prop rod when I didn't lift my Hood high enough and the rod swung down and put big scratch on my grille

Just got done painting my shackles and the "JEEP" logo above the bumper. Also made a kick board at the bottom of my door bc it kept getting knicked and was nasty looking made it with some spray bed liner. Everyone's right that Bed liner is addictive!

Tell me what you Folks think:







Took a whole pen just to do this much, and at $12 per paint pen its gonna be expensive. That plus the fact that this took me over an hour to do just this part... So is it worth the time and effort? Im headed to the craft store now to see if theres any other paints I can use with a brush to speed up this process.

I like it, but am concerned about how it will hold up. After all that cash and effort I'd hate to see it disappear after a week.

So you would rather have white lettering than body color?

Thats why I only did one tire for now, lets see how it holds up. and if it lasts after one wash in a week or so.

Use a small cutting disc, and you can cut them out, as I did it and my bezels are like new. No cuts

Hmmmmm, the are totally opposite to the way mine are installed. But I dont think you can install a shock upside down. One end has a pin or bracket, the other a bushing. They really can only go in one way.
