Plasti Dipped my chrome side steps, $6.

Bought the Jeep a few months ago and wanted to get rid of the chrome, but wanted to keep the side steps, helps my 6 year old get in and out.

We'll see how long it holds up, but 5 light coats on it.

Here's a cheap mod slice your hand open and bleed on it. It's a real rustic look

It looks good... But also flings everything you go over into/onto the Jeep.

EBay. The STT lights were $40 a pair and the small button lights were $10 a pair.

Here's the links
http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?n...d=350810265566
And
http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?n...d=140648413759

And the trick when drilling the hole for the lights is the locking holes for hole saw necessary to cut the hole that hold the drill bit to the saw itself is the exact size and width of the two mounting holes of the original lights so you can literally bolt the saw to the body trace out the circle and center hole and get a perfectly level cut on either side. Please ignore the goofy drawing we did haha

$20 rubber mat from Tractor Supply..
I originally bought it to put between my gas tank skid plate and the plastic tank
(skid did not have the divot on the bottom and caused issues)

Had the perfect amount left over to make a nice little tub mat, replacing some of the rear carpet.



I left the carpet in front of the seat, I really like the way it turned out



*still some mud stains left over from the Cliffs the other weekend*

It holds up pretty well. I did that exact thing to mine. It may peel off a little here and there but you can just spray more on it. I just touched mine up yesterday
