My LJ with 1.25" BL instaled. I

I did it about a month ago. Im happy with the look and its a start. The main thing I dont like right now is the grey top and flares. I want to go black. Im not crazy about that pinstripe either. It was on there when I got it a year ago along with the 'wrangler' in script on the hood. I got that off right way.
What do you guys think?

Edit: It's working now. Nice looking LJ. Is the pinstripe removable? I miss my khaki jeep...

Quite a few members have had success with rattle can bedliner on the flares. I can't think of the brand but with easy application and easy touch up it's worth a try.

I agree. I had the same dark khaki flares/top and they looked really good after some trim restorer.

As for the pinstripe, remove it if you don't like it?

That's a great looking jeep! Hopin to get an LJ sometime this fall. Love that color! As for the top and flares, I like that color as well. What part of the country did u buy the jeep and how much did u pay for it? I'm trying to get a handle on what I'm going to have to pay when I go find mine. Oh, what year is that rig?

I have the same jeep as you. Just did the body lift last weekend, and bought it with 2" coil spacers. Now on 35's with the help of flat fenders. I bed lined my fenders a while back and now they are fading. I'll most likely just use some krylon fusion and repaint them. IMO lose the pinstripe and paint the hardtop black.

The Jeep looks great. I have to agree with the others that the stripe needs to go. As far as paining the flares, they would look great in black. Back when I had flares, I painted them with Krylon Fusion. They never faded on me. I've since removed them and given them to my brother. They still look great.
