those look great! i just took my rear flares off haha, the bedliner on the fronts are holding okay. There is just something about a white sahara (early ones do look the best i agree) but even in the JK(U)s the white sahara is just a classy jeep. and they dont have to worry about scratches.

I've been looking at those rock guards. What are your thoughts on them?

I haven't really "used" them, I bought them more to cover body damage from an accident my wife got into... but they seem pretty solid( they mount to 2 body mounts and then 7 bolts through the tub) and the powder coating has held up great so far. I installed them about a year ago

Best cheap mod I've done so far? Led dash lights... They are amazing... And only 20$ for gauges and HVAC

I installed a fire extinguisher onto my jeep for $1.60. I had the fire extinguisher from a kenworth rig so I went to Lowe's and bought a hose clamp that would fit my roll bar. So far this mod is just like the title; Cheap, Easy, Fun, Creative, Clean, and out of the way yet still accessible







I think it's the best $1.60 I have ever spent! I have been paranoid of fire since I was caught in a fire in my racecar with no fire extinguisher. Let me tell you, putting a fire out that was inches from a fuel line with a t-shirt was not a pleasant feeling. I'm just glad that I didn't lose my car or my life.

Nice work putting it within arms reach but a 5lb extingusher is pretty much minimum if you want to really stop a fire .

Had my Chevy '74 Blazer catch on fire and carried an extinguisher ever since. Not risking it. It only takes one time!

Installed a gun rack in mine yesterday. About $100, so maybe not a cheap mod but not too expensive either. Well worth it for me, solved the problem of my guns laying around in the back seat.

Not cheap per-say but not somewhere you wanna cheap out. I'd rather spend some $ and not have a 12gauge fall on my head

AJ_IOOF: It's a Big Sky Rack I snagged on Ebay for $100 bucks. Type 190638526742 in the Ebay search window and you'll see the exact one I bought. It is actually made for one of those UTV side-by-sides, but as you can see it fits great on a TJ.
