If you make them can you post up some pics in my paracord handles thread? theres a link to it in my signature. Also check out this http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/chea...ds-102868.html thread of which I am a huge fan and avid supporter, it might be right up your alley.

I liked both of those threads. I customized the handles that I already had by removing the pad and going over the canvas strap with parachord.

Good job there LilYeller. So long as what you've done makes you happy nothing else matters.

You've got a great looking rig. I love seeing all the things you post in other threads. I've got a similar paint scheme and I've been working on mine a lot lately. I'm starting a thread soon on what I've done and would love to hear your input. Your jeep looks awesome!

Your jeep rocks. It almost makes me want to paint mine. Yellow is one of my faves. You did lots of work on both cars. Sorry you lost your red ride. I just got rid of my last yellow project to buy a jeep. Check it out.

They were on the Jeep when I bought it. I have a feeling that they were billet aluminum then got painted black later on. Rugged Ridge makes a set of black ones but they arent cheap. Rugged Ridge Aluminum Grille Insert Kit w/ Black Powder Coat For 1998-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ

Make your own! get those trim pieces you posted earlier and then get some expanded metal and cut to fit. Im sure theres some writeup in the cheap easy mods thread on here that can help you along the way. I got lucky cause the PO of my Jeep put some pretty decent stuff on it, like the flares, headlight rock guards, rims, steps, and grille inserts. It saved me some cash on stuff I would have put on it anyways. Tho I may have chosen a different set of rims and all black side steps. They definately kept it nice and I had a good base to start with.

Not as bad as I am for my own bank account lol. However, most of these mods I did myself and they really arent as hard as you might think. Paint is cheap, paracord is cheap, the time is the expensive part lol. But the way it makes your rig look is worth way more than the money and time you spend on it.

The TJ wrangler is a perfect first vehicle. They are relatively easy to work on and if you screw something up, parts are cheap and aftermarket parts are abundant. The tools, well thats another story. But the knowledge and ability come with experience. So work on it, experiment with it, try something different and if it doesnt work strip it off and try something else.

I bought the iggee seat covers a couple of months ago, and I think they look great so far. But the one on my drivers seat has developed a diagonal crease across the seat. Any idea what could be causing this or how I could fix it?

Hey guys I was wondering if when I get a lift on my jeep and I'm getting really bad death wobble if I should install a stabilizer bar and if it would help the death wobble any?

Most likely from sitting on the seat then scooting your butt into position. I try not to sit on the edge of the seat and scoot in after I noticed something similar on mine you can kinda see it on the driver side in the pic below. What I did was take out that crappy string that they put in there from the IGGEE factory and put some paracord there instead. Then tied it down nice and tight.

couldnt tell you, they were on here when I got it. I looked briefly for some markings but couldnt find anything that identifies it either way.

I try not to scoot in as well, but maybe thats what happened. What string are you referring to? The elastic straps you use to connect it under the seat?

No there's a string that goes around the bottom of the seat to keep it tight. I also hate the elastic but idk what to do about that yet.

Just installed my Hyline Louvered hood panel today:





Saying the first hole is the worst hole implies that it gets easier to cut them out, it doesnt lol.



I opted for a coat of plasti-dip before I installed the panel to the hood. Trying to keep the edges from rusting and keep water from getting inbetween them and causing issues.



Installed pic fom under the hood





Even got a chance to see how wet the engine gets about 30 sec after I finished the install.



Its really not so bad, actually some of that is from when I opened the hood and all the water ran down the inside of it. The valve cover stays pretty dry, the intake opening stays dry, mainly just the alternator and headers are getting wet.

Sweet, i have one of these on my list dude. I just love how they look and it would help with the heat while sitting at a stop waiting for others on the trail.
