What year? My '12 and '14 were/are simple to find, no roll bar cover takeoff, I just moved it a bit out of the way where the soft top attached and unscrewed 4 torx screws (2 per side). There were even Velcro flaps that kept the slits in the rollbar cover closed.

Moonrider [QUOTE="Mammoth919;14930305"] I used reflective vinyl. If you email pixel decals they will send you waste vinyl. For like $6. I have some left over could mail it. Stuck it to an aluminum plate and 3m'ed it to the bunper. No spacers. It's just sitting on a PS fairlead mount.[/QUOTE

Thank you brother.

chrlswltrs I cut my cup holder inset so if I have a 1 liter soda I can remove half the insert and still have the other half in to hold a smaller drink securely. I cut it just off center so the clips hold the front one in and the back one is easier to take in and out.

Thanks for the heads up. I think I'm gonna take it to a shop to have them installed I don't weld. I already have C gussets so I'm solid there.

RHuckster I've done a few mods over the past couple of weeks so I'll post all @ once & I'll try & get several pics tomorrow. I posted a question about 2 weeks ago about getting the screws out holding the dash Oh Sh*t handle trim piece off. I used the information yesterday & took out the 2 screws on that plus the 2 x 2 screws holding the trim pieces on the doors. I also removed the air vents(4) & took them apart so I could paint the little black rings behind the trim rings. I painted everything with copperhead & reinstalled. Several weeks ago I installed a MF 15178 single in & dual out axle back muffler after painting the muffler flat black(bbq paint) but left the chrome tips unpainted. I've got a Willys & I've installed some extra outside black trim so I needed something to break up the black since I think I over did the black accents a bit. I also installed a Banks 41837 intake @ the same time & today I installed a 91 performance tune from my new superchips 3872 Flashpaq. Well, that's it for today.

ArmyofMike Finished my front 550 Paracord Grab Handles. Front were much more involved than the rear. But they look great and are quite strong.
