That looks pretty good. What did you use, white acrylic?

Well, this probably isn't cheap for anybody else, but... I've been making a rear bumper out of some 3x3 steel tube. Just got my end caps welded on and ground down last night, next it d-rings from horror freight, and a hitch receiver. Then mounting it. Should I make a build thread for this? It seems like too small of a project for anybody to care.

bigearl---I'd like to see the build. My dad has a blacksmith and fab shop. I have done some fab work in the past on furniture and iron fencing that he makes. Since I have bought my YJ a month ago i have realized there may be a big need for me to re-hone my skills to make some custom parts!!

Tomorrow I will be bed linering the fender flares or making sway bar quick disconnects, I will decide which one when I wake up.

$25 off eBay I got some blue led lights for my dash which included the turn signal dash light bulbs as well. Took about an hour to install and I think was a big upgrade for little money since it's something you'll notice ever time you use your lights

Rocker Knockers-$60 in steel, several hours of fitting, you can weld rocker rails onto it, or leave them straight like I did.

I like that idea FredDog01, Might have to see if I have some extra visors laying around.
