smaxberry 2 pool noddles from the Dollar Store, cut to size and split to fit on the bottoms of the doors when I have them sitting on the garage floor leaning on the wall. I don't have to pic saved on my phone and don't know how to link from my original cheap mod post.

desertgoose $6 quick disconnects.

A little noisy when pulling in/out of driveways because the hole on axle is larger than the swaybar link hole. But saves a ton of time and effort on trailhead.

Also did mirror flip, grab handles, straps for seatbelt flutter, sill guard, painted muffler black, locking fuel door and removed rear headrests.

as you peel, the plasti-dip on the letters will stay put, but the stuff that got onto the grill will come off.
Or just do the whole grill.

1quick1 Slush mats. mine came with them but if they didn't I'd buy em anyways.

desertgoose My $25 grill inserts. I did this before I saw the gutter guard and zip tie method. Attached wrong pic, new pic to follow.

razdds2 and while i am at it, i'll show you my interior hardtop plasti-dipped. it looks much better than the white. there are some mis-colored spots that i recently fixed just by adding another layer in those areas.

you also see the flipped rear view mirror.

literally takes 5 seconds. you pull down your rear view mirror so you have room to turn it. then turn it so the tab is on top. that's it, adjust accordingly to get your view right.

also, these two stickers cost me 8 dollars shipped and look as though they came with the jeep. the thin white outline you see was later rubbed off with my finger nail, I was just too lazy to re-take the picture when the sticker was perfect.

taoshum cheapest mod I know: turn your rear view mirror "upside" down, you get a better view.

Kelsey73 I did the grill from amazon for $35. Super cheap and easy. Forgot to mention that.
