Alright I need some honest opinions!!

I painted my bezels yellow today! I plan on doing the tie rod, sway bar links, and track bar yellow to! I'm kind of in the middle with the look! Should I just re paint them black or keep the yellow????

If your jeep was black I would say keep the yellow. But the yellow, blue, and black(fenders) is just to much. Might reconsider yellow just my $0.02

Black is the best idea, I would also reconsider your steering too. If you insist on yellow, try just the tie rod end and maybe buy an OME steering stabilizer. Otherwise I'd say black or maybe a dark blue?

Seat covers look nice, are they neoprene? I just bought some of the Realtree ones from Walmart for mine, they look good, but the back one is a lil big because it's the "universal" fit for full size seats lol. I'm gonna see if I can tighten it up somehow.. do you know how hard it is to find just a regular plain black rear seat cover for a Jeep?? Unless I'm searching wrong they just don't exist >.< Not a $30 one anyway.

JMPO, i would say go black. hard to make any color look good with the blue, just like my sand/brown/dirty/khaki or whatever people call it.

your jeep looks awesome by the way.

My opinion is, do which ever you like and don't worry what other people think, it's your jeep.

I like the yellow! If you want something more subtle paint the metal headlight retaining ring yellow and the bezel black?

I have the WO too, and have had a pair on my truck for over 10 years and the older ones still look like new. The ones on the Jeep arent even a year old yet..

Considering buying 98-99 XJ since we just had another bun come out of the oven. I know from experience a car seat in the back of a wrangler is a PITA. However our son will be getting permit and start driving and I don't know which Jeep I want to keep and which to pass to him. I figure an XJ would be the safer for a teen and their will be times when he is hauling the younger sister and new little brother...... Then the flip is with 5 people the XJ would make a better money pit for family wheeling. Hmmmm

Congrats on the new little you! And hopefully you figure it out!XJs are nice rigs! If I wasn't totally broke from the TJ I'd look for one.

Thanks, I suppose realistically the older son once he is driving will want to drive his own rig. Sounds like two money pits are in the future
