I think it looks cool. Doesn't look too ricey as long as its just like on the linkage like that. Kind of a pain in the ass if you just took them off to paint them and didn't paint them when you were lifting it or upgrading haha.

Looks great!!! The green sets it off. I have always been a fan of subtle accents. The under carriage parts can be a pain and time consuming. I did mine in conjunction with my lift, so no down time for dry time.

One thing that you will notice now... You will be cleaning your suspension and under carriage every time you wash it. Forces you to keep it clean and pretty now. Lol!

The only under tub accents I have on my rig are the ones made by rocks. That is how I like it, but to each their own.

Why not? RE powdercoats grey....skyjacker an rancho do red. RC does silver , fab tech does blue.

Again. Why not? Guess I like mine clean and this helps me keep it that way.

Looks good man.

I plan on taking out my lift kit and having it all Powder coated a Metalic Maroon Color. I think it will really offset the Black and Light Kaki of my Jeep.

You ask why? I am tried of looking at the rust spots on the springs and control arms and I think the maroon will look at lot better than the RE grey thats on them. And because I can.

Nice job..you can tell both of you put a lot of time into making it perfect!

Personally, I prefer keeping everything black..but why should you care? :P

To each his (or her) own...to make our Jeep our own!

bahh you took my idea! I really like black a green subtle accents. I've always wanted to do it but I'm not going through that much trouble (yet). Nice job.

TJe0454 I think you should make your 8.8 neon green and get glow in the dark paint so it really stands out considering it's a piece to be adored.

its rustoleum floresent green. i got it at lowes. it takes a million coats to get it to be not dark green. and its not floresent. i was worried about that at first but it wont be floresent
.
and if i had money i would have just painted everything when i upgraded but that wont be for a long time so for now i just deal with the stock stuff.
