let's hear some cheap cosmetic things you've done

Anything cheap that can be done at home. Like paint things? Or something cheap that really makes your Jeep one of a kind

Scratches from brush and trees are always cheap and most of the time unique.

I just did it this year when it started getting cold, probably in October. It's held up well so far there are no scratches. I really like it it changes the whole feel of the interior

$5.00 led light mounted in the spare tire center cap. Re-used the stock wiring.






I took the carpet out of the floor of the Jeep. Stuff kept kept clanking and sliding around back there. I had an old rubber truck bed liner from my pickup laying around, so I cut a piece to fit in the Jeep. There was enough left for a friend to do his JK Unlimited too.

I have been thinking about getting a rubber liner for a small pickup and trimming it to fit the back of my LJ for a while.

I've decided to take out my milk jugs and replace with end caps all around. Noticed the rear ones seem to push salt/snow ect up the corner liners so hopefully the end caps show eliminate that vicious cycle going.
