I like that design. At least when the rear seat is in, a theif would never know something was back there. Unfortunately i almost never put the seat in so i have to come up with some other hidden design.

Also I always forget to lock my tailgete so it's a good thing I never leave anything like that in my jeep. Which reminds me, gotta go check something.

As shown a million times here. I bedlined some stuff around my jeep. And made my own grill inserts. Sadly i had to zip tie them through the outside of the grill. Thoughts?

Looks ok to me. Hardly noticable in the pics anyway.

See if you can find someone with aftermarket grill inserts and see how theirs are attached. It may give you some ideas on a better way to do it.

Maybe you could do it with some kind of clip that pinches the mesh onto the vertical grill bars from the back side somehow. Theres always the option of some kind of epoxy but that would be too permanent for me.

Get zip tie brackets and glue/epoxy them to the inside of the grill and zip tie the inserts to that.

Did you take the mirrors apart to bedline them?

I didn't want to deal with all the trouble of taking the grill off. At least it looks like a lot of trouble, it could be terribly easy and I could just be stupid. I'd like to do that at some point though.

And all I did was take them off and tape over the mirror. It's a little rough around the edges of the mirror but it's not noticeable unless you're inspecting it

If you don't have AC it shouldn't bee too bad. If you do though it gets a bit more involved.

I am desperate to have my mirrors done. They are chrome or should I say were chrome. The plating has been peeling off and what's left is the ugly unfinished metal.

I love it, but I have yet to hit anything with it really. First day I had it, someone who was parked next to me turned out of his parking spot too sharp and rode up the side of it though. My bumper was fine and his truck got a big gash down the side. It's strong for sure and looks cool. It would look even better with a winch and some d rings on it, maybe even some fog lamps up top

I have 2 sets of headlights and I was wondering if there is a way to mount them on the bumper by using another set of housing or something

I have that same one and I love it. Looks way better than stock. PO put fog lights on the top and down below, and they are great at night. Definitely worth putting them on.

Did you zip tie your license plate on?

Yes. :-D. Ohio requires both plates. Couldn't bring myself to drill into the bumper to get the holes to line up. Seemed like a decent alternative. Six months of daily highway driving has not been an issue.

Just remember, when they updated the law this year, they forgot to stipulate the class of offense so they can only give you a warning until the it can be amended through legislation next year. Lol
