Thank you! I appreciate that. I'm a sucker for good contrast.

twister4399 Put the new exhaust manifold on today. I also had to do a new water pump as the one I put in last winter decided to leak. Decided to swap it while the rest of the jeep was apart. Waiting on my Bosch 4 hole injectors to complete the install.

Thanks

Monster93 Hello all, had a little fun today, got some more parts today and was like a kid at Christmas, here is what I got today,

1, New bestop super top NX with frame and hardware, (very sweet top)
2, New door uppers with frame
3, Rear Smittybilt fenders
4, 50" LED light bar
5, 4" lights
6, Smittybilt rock sliders but ran out of time today, will install tomorrow
7, Smittybilt winch plate with Poison Spyder black anodized hawse fairlead, also ran out of time.


Got all the lights installed but still have to wire everything, going to finish the rails and winch plate tomorrow after I paint the bracket. And going to paint inside lip of rear fenders black.

Yeah.... I cleaned all the bugs off and masked everything.... I also put cardboard behind the grill to stop the paint from getting on the radiator....
It took about 3 coats and a night to dry but it looks alright...
Flat black is what I used... we'll see how it holds up.
