|UgaTyler||I painted my headlight bezels this afternoon. I was checking the connection on one of the lights and then I just spontaneously decided to do it. I have considered doing this several times and I have even considered painting them red but ultimately I decided it would look best black. I can't believe I waited so long to do this. Before and after.|

i got my front aluminum Genright fenders in a few weeks ago and today I ordered the rear fenders. I can't wait to get these in and send them off to get powder coated or painted (still deciding).
The Jeep is about to get a transformation.

|MudRunner||I think I may have seen you on Highway 10 in Athens this afternoon. You let off a big wave and I completely missed it. In case this was you, I'm returning the wave. If not, ignore my comment. Sorry for cluttering your build thread but I hate to miss a wave.|

|Kodanja||Superbly done! I'm just about ready to purchase a Rubicon Hard Rock. Black was my first choice, but I'm not sure I can commit to keeping it clean and polished. Do you need to maintain the paint to keep swirls from showing up? How has the paint been holding up over the past year? White is my second choice with black accents....ah, maybe red accents! Thanks for taking the time to post all those great mods!|

It's hard to see in this picture but I trimmed my pinch seams this afternoon. With a reciprocating saw (sawzall) and a dremel, it really wasn't that hard. Trimming the Rubi rail was much tougher than the pinch seam. I was surprised at how tough those Rubi rails are. I ended up cutting about 4" off the Rubi rail and then angling the pinch seam accordingly. Took me longer to get the Rubi rails on/off (had to loosen my ace rails) than it did to make the cuts.
Hopefully I will get the "go" to order the other half of my Genright fenders this weekend.

Genright Tire Carrier
I installed the Genright Aluminum Tire carrier this evening. Install was very easy and went smooth with no setbacks. How many times can you say that????
Tire carrier looks awesome!

|Trapjaw||Came out great!|

I have started the painting process on the tire carrier. I was going to powder coat it but then decided to save $200 and do it myself with rustoleum truck bed liner. Recently a friend wanted me to paint his bumper with this product and it turned out great so... The decision was made.
Attached below are a few of the pics I snapped during the process.
First I used some 400 grit sandpaper and scuffed the tire carrier up some. Next I used mineral spirits to clean the carrier good making sure not to touch it with my bare hands. I put 3 coats of self etching primer on and then 5 coats of bedliner. It's hard to tell by the pictures but the carrier looks fantastic. Now if I bang it on something I will be able to fix it myself.
Hope to install this Friday.

|weissja36||I'm not usually a fan of the tire carrier delete but that looks sick! I'm envious of your entire build. Really nicely done!|

The tire carrier came in today so I took the old carrier off and installed the Poison Spyder Tramp Stamp (with colored vinyl behind the logo). I also installed the last Vector UFO. The UFO's delete the holes left in the tailgate.
It will be a few days before I will be able to install the tire carrier. I have already sanded, and primed it and will add some rattle can liner to it tomorrow. Hopefully this weekend I will have it installed.

Sup fellow GA boy!! Jeep looks great bud. I can just picture all the eye rolling your wifes done over the last 18 months. LOL. By the way by my calculations she should have had that kid about 9 months ago, if not shes way way over due isn't she!
Hope all went as well in that area of your life as your Jeep build has.
I got a yellow 2001 TJ and while it crossed my mind to do a GA Tech scheme im way to much of a DAWG fan to ever fly those colors.
Keep on doing this great original build you got going on and best of luck to you and yours.

|KneeDeep||What light bar did you install on your front XHD bumper? What length did you go with? It looks like it fits in the space perfectly.|

On another note, I just purchased the front of Genright Aluminum flat fenders. I'm not quite ready to install the fenders so I am spacing the purchases out so my wife doesn't kill me. I'll purchase the back fenders in the next few months.
I stole this picture of the internet to show the fenders that I will be installing.

I am still waiting on the Genright Tire Carrier and so I haven't installed that (obviously) or the Poison Spyder tramp stamp. I have installed two of the vector UFO's and the Rugged Ridge grille mesh. It's hard to get a good picture of the UFO's so I am going to wait until I install the tramp stamp to show pictures of those.
Here is a picture of the Rugged Ridge Grille Mesh followed by my exhaust which I painted flat black with VHT, Very High Temp spray paint (matte Black).
