I like the tint strips, but there's no sense in doing it until I replace the windshield.

I like the first because it goes with the angry Jeep theme I have (looks like an eye with angry eye brow) the first is my sons design so it might be cool for him to have a say in how my jeep turns out since it will likely be his one day anyways lol. I like the second because its more traditional, which is also why I dont like the second lol.

which is why I'm am more than glad that the previous owner payed the $$$ to get it! It has some strong recovery points too! If i were ever to get into some sort of collision, the object it hits won't turn out as good as my bumper. Which is why whenever someone cuts me off or pulls out in front i just yell "GO AHEAD! We'll see who's car gets the least damage!"

ive seen alot of those smittybilt stingers on here lately, just so you guys know, if you drill a hole on the ends of the bumper there is just enough space for lights. and it doesnt look half bad..got these cheapo lights on there for now, a friend gave em to me.

Rear window "tint"

I couldnt afford the tinted windows from best top, so i decided to come up with a fix of my own. Instead of tinting the vinyl ( which I have found no way to do),I bought solar window screen material from Home Depot got out the old sewing machine, cut them to fit, hemmed the edges and attachepd it to the roll bar and top frame with velcro. You can't see in from the outside, you can see out from the inside, looks like tinted windows at first glance, and cost a total of $55.00 total with screen material and velcro.

DSCN2761.jpg picture by jeffswatson - Photobucket

If the pics dont work Ill repost them whenn I get home. Im on my Ipad right now and i dont know if theyll work.
