Thumbs up Update on my mj

did some beutification on the ole pig. i painted the fender flares black, and coated the rockers with my favorite product- rust shield. i'm almost out now, gotta go get some more. anywho, the black flares and rockers really toned down the mismatched reds where the body shop just used the original paint code but didn't match the faded paint the previous owner had done. oh yeah, i also installed a new to me front bumper with front bumper pads and fog lights

before:



after:








this ole girl has come a long way since i got it a year or so ago. inside and out. i sure love having this truck.

nope, cleaned it up, removed the cap. that made a huge difference. but you can see in the before pic on my first post it still has darker red on the bed and fenders. previous owner spent 2 grand in body work, but skipped the cab and tail gate, so the reds don't match perfect. previous owner even spent the money to have the pioneer decals put back on. so this black really toned it down. if i repainted it, it would all match

but still came a long way from the car tires, radio missing, dash bezel cut, windshield frame trim peeling, and so much more. this truck is more new than old though, considering all the parts the po put on, and then me.

ya, they all have them, they have to let air out when you close the door, or else there would be no where for the air to go and the door wouldn't close. all vehicles have some sort of vent especially small cab trucks.

Yea, I was wondering if it was just for looks or not.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
