Hinges

Got a silver 01 tj. Some of the hinges and bolts are a lil rusty (i know probably normal). We are thinking about replacing all the hinges (doors, hood, windshield and tailgate) to black stainless steel. What do yall think? Look cool or not so much?

I'm thinking of doin the same thing on mine as well. I own a green pearl coat so I can't provide pictures of how it looks on my own rig but I have seen plenty of silver ones on here with black hinges and think it looks the best on the silver and white TJs. I'm going to test the look with some plasti-dip before I pull the trigger on anything drastic. You can peel the stuff right off after you've made up your mind.

It'll look good but is not cheap. I took all of mine off, sanded them and then painted them black. I figured I'd at least try it out before dropping the money on new hinges.

I still haven't installed mine--okay, I can't get the flippin' screws out so I need to get an impact driver or torch first--but I bought black stainless windshield hinges and they come in a satin black finish. I decided to coat mine in Rustoleum Bedliner to match the rest of my trim but they seem like quality pieces.

Black trim looks AWESOME on silver Jeeps by the way.

Thanks for advice. We were looking at Kentrol hinges. Maybe I will try to convince hubby to paint them instead. The kit is a lil pricey.

Dont mean to be asking so many questions but its our first wrangler and we need input/advice from those that have had them for a while. We want to put a 2.5 to 3" suspension lift...any suggestions? Wheels we want black and tires 33s. I want to beef it up (yes im a girl). Husband has his toy, 1993 Ford F150 on 2.5 ton axles with tractor tires with a huge motor, so the Jeep is mine. No mud playing in mine tho. ;-).

You will need more than 2 1/2" if your planning to off-road some, mine has 3 1/4" rough country with 1 1/4" body lift

Attachment 112323

with it maxed out on the ramp no binding or rubbing.

Mine were rusty on my 2000 beyond repair. Replaced with black rugged ridge hinges. The bolts are crap on both new and old but buy your own stainless steel if you want them to last. Here's what mine look like After I redid them with bed liner.

You don't need that much to offroad? I have a 2" lift and 32" tires and I can go everywhere I've tried to

While mike is right. It's all about the details of the setup not general numbers. You can run 33s on stock suspension with the right mods. What are you looking to do? You'll want 4 inches of suspension or 3 suspension and 1 body lift to properly run 33s to their fullest. With no body modifications.

Looks good until it scuffs. Then looks like crap. I did it to part of my hard doors. Looks good in the dark or rain. Terrible in sun. But don't wanna peel or redo

What part of Tx are you in? If your not near the gulf, then paint would be the way to go. If you're close to the gulf, I'd go the stainless steel route.

Black should look ok, IMO anyway.

For 33" tires, you'll need about 4" of lift. But you don't need that much for a competent wheeler.
