Cleaned the Mud off....photos!

I figured I'd clean the Jeep a little. Used some Black Magic wet shine. Here's some photos. What do you guys think I should buy next??? Suggestions??

new bumpers, and those marker lenses should be tinted, everything is blacked out and they stick out like a soar thumb.

i like the clear lenses ok, especially in the last pic. gives it just enough to go with the rubi sticker.

looks good. Id throw a winch on that bumper and get the end caps from the X model on the bumper ends. Im not a big fan of aftermarket bumpers. To me their like honda civics. Everybody got one.

I really dig the black-out look that you have.
I think smoked markers would look better on your Rig though.
I have the clear markers as well, but my TJ is white.

As for what else to put on:
Maybe some nice Black Nerf Bars on each side.

I'd PS them on your pic for you if I didn't have this damn cast on.
But here's a link to a set of them.
The color in the pic is pretty accurate to how the lenses will actually look.

eBay Motors: 01 02 03 JEEP WRANGLER TJ SMOKE BUMPERS + SIDE MARKERS (item 220404554826 end time May-27-09 17:38:11 PDT)

those will have the right darkness to them to match up with everything, some smoked lenses are lighter than those and would work better on a brighter colored jeep like green or blue.

That rubi is awesome. I think you should leave the markers clear. I think it's funny how you took your lisence plate numbers off all the pictures except the last one.

Yeah, I've seen some people running smoked lenses that look like a light grey color. I think these would look better on a blacked out rig too.

Ah..here we go.

I think listening to all your Rod Stewart and Paul Simon albums has finally thrown you off the deep end.
I know that's the REAL reason why you wussed out, and took the lift kit out of your rig.

Ok so I took a vote tally. I'm orderin the smoked lenses tomorrow when I get home from work. They are cheaper than a new bumper anyway. Anyone want the old clear ones when I take them off??

Yep. I could always use an extra set too.
I know that I'll eventually break mine on thick brush or soemthing.
Let me know how much you want for them.

i cant believe on a jeep website that all you guys are worried about the cosmetics.....i think that jeep is as good looking as it gets...cosmetically...how do you like the crushers first off....second off dont get a front bumper till you bend the one youve got..third off dont worry about the marker lighst b/c someday your gonna crank a fender and have to buy new ones so then you will have an excuse.....think tube fenders and any other body protection possible....that think is very nice looking jeep and unlike me with some thicker metal you might be able to keep it that way

Ahh someone always has to ask about the practical stuff The Crushers so far are great in the mud. I havent tried them on any rocks theres not too many around here. The treads clean out nice in the thick stuff and they arent too bad on the highway. They have the traditional mudder whine at speed but dont vibrate much. They are wearin pretty evenly, ive got just over 15k on them.
