its still drying, funnny story, i was taking off the fenders, got one off, then the rest were a pain in the a$$. so i just left them on, i could get the bolts out because they just kept spinning, so i said f it, taped it off respectively, and painted them. i literally just finished my door handles as well, i did take a before pic, so you guys can all see the difference. So as soon as i get that one fender on and its all done drying ill put some up here

Ok cool. Yeah. All the fender bolts just spin. You have to take the plastic wheel well liner off and hold the square plastic nut block while you unscrew. I found that out after I grinder them all off when I got my new fenders

I have a 2000 also. Hmm but that's interesting. Your Talking about The fuse box right. I'd really like some in depth details. Don't wanna bend the wrong one!

ok if you have a tj, then take out the glove box, there should be a relay towards the top a litttle, i dont remember exactly which one, there is two, but all you do is bend the #1 relay tab and then put it back in, I bent the wrong one at first, just bent it back to normal lol.

I kinda like how blatantly easy the tj is to work on. Nearly everything is easily accessible or has a simple bypass to it.

try your hardest getting the relay off without moving the harness, i couldnt get that damn thing off with my life depended on it, so i had to take the harness off of the bracket it was on, and wasnt able to get it back on, (huge pain in the balls) so i just zipp tied it up there

this was one of my very first mods, i use to have fog lights on a stock bumber, traded just the lights for a better bumper and winch plate, sold those on craigslist for 250, then bought my bumper now and rocksliders for practically free, but since i didnt have any fogs, i decided to run my kc lights uptop into my fog wires so i could use the stock switch, then did this so i could run brights at the same time.

Yeah I've always wondered if I could do that. I assumed just running a new powerline straight to battery and switch. But this is much easier

I went to my bx, picked up some cheapo paint, sanded them, taped it off and sprayed away, i did it in flat black first, it looked horrible, so went gloss. Then i made a trip to walmart picked up some rattle can bedliner, sanded the door handles real good, taped off, sprayed, the bedliner surprisingly shot out real fast and long, i had to hold it pretty far away from the handles. looks great and feels good.
