Whats next for my jeep?

Hey everyone. Lately I've been stumped. I'm going to Regear, add a rear locker, and upgrade front steering soon. Mechanically I'm just about where I want to be.

From a visual point of view, what would you add? Flat fenders? Stickers? Sport cage? I just feel like its missing something...

Thanks for your time

Also paint those headlight bessels black. No chrome! and maybe some black grill inserts would make it's look more busy

How about a little mud and dirt ? Don't do anything that does not help with performance. No stickers , no chrome , no dingle berries , None of that crap . But , that's just me !

I changed my turn signals out to the clear ones. It was a cheap and easy project that I've had a few compliments on. Looks great. And I agree with painting the bezels black

Until winter all I've got to prove I've been offroad are dents and scratches from the Rubicon and slickrock trail. Once I get some rain she will be covered in mud

I've got a nice scratch on my side from sliding into a boulder but these are two pics I have on my phone right now. Rim edges have no paint left and exhaust is a little bent. Its more round now.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, keep em coming!

I'm not too fond of the idea of water being able to pour onto electronics, engine parts, the belt, and air filter in heavy rain. Anyone have problems?

Stock jeeps can run the rubicon. 35's are more than fine.

Yep we got a stock TJ through with just dents and some bent metal. I am on 33's and never even touched my TC skid and only hit my gas tank skid a few times. Front diff took some nice hits though.

I just put flat fenders on mine. I love the way they look and perform. I had the same fender flares as the ones you have and the tires rubbed when the suspension flexed.

Yeah they make the pop pop pop when I flex out and the tire tread grabs the edge of the fender. I like how they look, I just need to figure out if I need them...
