I really like it. I also made a door kicker because the bottom of my door kept getting scratched up.

Not talking from experience but I have heard many ppl say that the rust oleum bedliner is better, so I would go with that. I went with dupli color just because it's what the local auto parts store had.

I recently swapped out my turn signal lights and I really like the way it looks. I got the 4 covers and 4 orange light bulbs on ebay for $45.

Well I'll get a pic when it's light outside and the 70mph winds and flooding settle down.

I don't have a picture as its hurricaning and my jeep has Probley floated down the street, but recently I found a junk car, cut out some windshield rubber seal, then lined my inner lower hood,(put it on the hard edge) so now it never slams or makes a loud noise.. And seals the hood from the fenders.

Is that legal to have red flashing lights?

Nothing really has to be modded. You just pop the door panel loose and install them where the factory handle is. They have a hole in each end for mounting just like the factory handles.
There's a piece of foam tape wrapped around them at the points where they go through the doors. It's not needed, I just thought it would help prevent any possibility of them wearing the pain off the door panel.


If you search around you'll actually find that Rugged Ridge sells them as Jeep door pulls. They just repackage kayak handles and jack the price up a bit.
