Got some new WeatherTech floor mats. Sounds pretty minor, but will make running the kids around a lot easier on the carpet...

Scuff them up... both bezels and retainers.... then prime them. the bezels I used Rustoleum Bedliner ( slight texture) and the retainers are done in Rustoleum Industrial hardhat ($4 a can at Walmart) Just takes a bit to dry...I leave them sit for a day.

After without showing the covers I plasti dipped

(My buddy Derek had a great idea to re purpose the excessive lighting on the front and use them as back up lights and as you all know the stock back up lights are not that great)

And yes the blue wally world special handle is on the ridiculous list of must change items... Stock Stereo Before

2012-03-30_20-10-01_644 by Vosty3, on Flickr

Went to Portland to see Wicked with the wifey ended up @ Car Toys and made them price match there Amazon "Car Toys" Price of $120 instead of the marked $190 and saved on tax (OR) also had them install a couple chameleon dvd headrest's that came out of my 08 Scion XB. We picked up two of these decks as my wifes 89 VW Cabriolet project we are knee deep in as well...
2012-03-31_19-11-05_34 by Vosty3, on Flickr

Had to throw my wifeys Cabriolet in the mix. Consider this Jeep "His" and her Cab as "Hers" she does not like anyone driving it but her...

The Turtle Wax Product worked fairly well on restoring the plastic I ended up using it on everything that was plastic

Bezel Before

Finger Nail polish grip tight ftw? bahaha

2012-03-31_14-34-56_445 by Vosty3, on Flickr

Happy with the relocation

2012-03-31_14-59-04_871 by Vosty3, on Flickr

Overall happy with the new fresh look we got rid of a lot of wiring issues the PO had. In fact none of the lights on the Jeep were working when I purchased it the only thing done correctly is the winch... We cut out all the wiring out and made a shopping list for next weekend ;D Never finished and Just Empty Every Pocket is ringing loud and clear...

I made a sweet lic. plate relocation bracket, it now resides in my spare tire carrier, way stronger than the ones you can buy. Made it completely for free from scraps of metal from work.

Are you going to take off the grill when you paint it? I'm very interested in doing this.

15 Minutes Each !

Today, installed Rampage Diamond Brite Euro Tail light reflector and lens . Fantastic result ! And only 15 minutes per side. How good can it get? Also installed cool white LED backups bulbs! Amazing improvement !
Highly recommended.

I have this bumper too. The swing arm gets in pretty tight to the body but I had to adjust the latch a few times as it settled in and got comfy. The Jerry cans hang on the outside of the bumper - in between the swing arm and the spare. They stay on there really tight with no rattling at all.

Apparently I bought a set of these (my dad informed me of the purchase to my account today). Grandparents had an intervention. Either put the doors back on or invest in a set of half doors...My dad found these and everybody settled.

Pretty neat but still
