Hey everyone,

I just bought my first Jeep this weekend. I'm sure you've all seen a two door Wrangler, so I'll spare you the pictures until I get a chance to mod it.

For those of you who are fans of the color, this is the car I traded in.

I like the last one of the group best. What covers are you getting that let you print a custom picture on them?

I did my handles and vent rings with Mopar Gecko and didn't have any peeling. Did you clean everything before painting and let them fully dry between coats? Link: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/sho...ml#post2609498

I use the lime green engine enamel from dupli color. It's a close enough match to make a nice accent and it's cheaper. Have it on my bumper, Rock rails, diffs, an interior.

I like the second one where she looks like she's going to kick someone's butt :P and the fourth one because the contrast of the green with her hair looks awesome

The only thing I had trouble peeling was my rear speaker covers but they don't get touched so all is well

No show, just tell...I was driving down the highway today and a car started pacing me in the left lane, I looked over and they were taking a picture of the Jeep. People just love the Gecko! (FYI, I'm not wanted for any crimes and I don't resemble any movie stars so it was definitely all about the Gecko!)

Well, today was the day. After two decades being away, I am a Jeeper again. Here it is at the dealer, with my BUFF [Big Ugly Ford F350] in the background.

Here it on it's first quick jaunt up to Castle Hot Springs and introducing my Missus to off-roading.



After letting her drive for about ten miles, she said there is likely to be another JK in a couple of years.
