Yes. $6 total and solved the problem. Don't even notice they're there.

Ricanbandit Subbed, I have the antenna, anthracite plasti dip for my OEM 17's coming this week. Also got some grab handles (that really helps a lot). I have a lease so cant do a lot, but once I actually buy my next one, woohoo

Sun fade fenders + fusion paint = new

Step 1, remove renders or tape off and cover your jeep
Step 2, SImple Green or other degreaser cleaner on the fenders
Step 3, FUSION by krylon in black coat and recoat until grey is gone.

Reverse step 1...

Mody n Domy I think the plugs were about 1" I left the rubber part on the top side of the hood. Sorry don't know how to do the picture thing, I'm a computer idiot, and to old to learn.

I'm wanting to do this, what size plugs worked for the hood holes? Any pictures you could share of the final results?

07tungsten Just ordered the Smittybuilt Cargo restraint ($89 right now) and the Mopar door sills ($30). Can't wait for them to come in!

paleh0rse If I use my little Sony mp3 player (with FM tuner) and connect it with a 3.5mm cable, some of the stations actually sound better than they do with the stock head unit and my 13" stubby. From a RF engineering perspective, that's always been kinda weird...

I just replaced my antenna with this one also. The stations that were questionable before are now really bad. The ones that were strong are still fine. Guess it just depends on where you live and how strong the stations are.

It was my first mod. It really improves the look. I think it would look killer on the white. And the reception good as well.

$695 is cheap in the world of jeep mods... IMO I'm well over 10K now.
