You painted your diff red too? Copycat! I see you have red shock boots, and red boot on your stabilizer. Mine are black, you should copy that off me too
You even have the things around you're headlights painted!

This is creepy...

So apparently my boss is a Jeeper too!

He gave me his side steps that he took off his TJ awhile ago for free, theyre $150 on quadratec but these are all rusty and theres a 7" rust gash on the bottom of one of them so I'm going to sand them all down and break out the rustoleum!

Pics tomorrow

So this morning I drove about 50 miles to get my new roll bar... and the only way to get it home was to put the top down I couldnt feel my hands after I got home.

I'm going to sand it down and paint it black, not sure if I'll get pads for it or not
