Vaultzz So this morning I drove about 50 miles to get my new roll bar... and the only way to get it home was to put the top down I couldnt feel my hands after I got home.

I'm going to sand it down and paint it black, not sure if I'll get pads for it or not
12-11-2009 12:48 PM
Vaultzz And since I had some paint left over I Sanded and painted my grille inserts

Before and After
12-11-2009 12:46 PM
Vaultzz And heres the finished restoration comparison and the mounting
12-11-2009 12:43 PM
Vaultzz Wow this took longer than I thought, but here we go, I grinded down all the rust on the steps and got lightly textured rustoleum from walmart, hung em from my garage and started spraying!
12-11-2009 01:15 AM
Vaultzz So apparently my boss is a Jeeper too!

He gave me his side steps that he took off his TJ awhile ago for free, theyre $150 on quadratec but these are all rusty and theres a 7" rust gash on the bottom of one of them so I'm going to sand them all down and break out the rustoleum!

Pics tomorrow

kaycee83 Ahhh mine were chrome. I painted them black.
12-08-2009 12:18 AM
Vaultzz The headlight covers are just black plastic lol, and I like my red shock boots, if anything I'll paint the shocks red
12-08-2009 12:11 AM
kaycee83 You painted your diff red too? Copycat! I see you have red shock boots, and red boot on your stabilizer. Mine are black, you should copy that off me too
You even have the things around you're headlights painted!

This is creepy...

I see how it is...Copy my style You gotta paint those chrome grill inserts. I painted mine flat black. Everything you see black on mine, is Walmart 99 cent flat black. It was so gayed up when i got it that i couldn't take it. I wanted to change the stuff but wasn't sure if it was worth putting money into, so i just painted it all. Haha

Our Jeeps would almost look the same if i had graphics on the side!

kaycee83 Hahaha. I was exempt from emissions. You must get lucky up there in PA. The cops will stop you around here and tell you your mud terrains are tearing up the road. WTF is that?

Yea i dunno? Someone told me the bumper height for inspection in PA is 28" from the ground to the bottom of the bumper? I can't see that being right. Mine is measuring just at like 26". Mine seems kinda big to legally pass inspection, but i dont know?

Are you making fun of my totally sick 1980's tube bumper? I didn't think so! Trust me, i CAN'T wait to get rid of that thing. I'd just take it off, but i think it would look to odd & plain.
12-07-2009 08:38 PM
Vaultzz You'll have to get rid of your huge bar bumper though lol
12-07-2009 08:27 PM
kaycee83 Awesome. I'm gonna check it out right now.
12-07-2009 08:24 PM
Vaultzz Actually they are still on sale, I'm not sure for how long but they are right now

A/T 2" Maxi Guard Bar by Olympic and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware

It doesn't take off the discount till you add it to a cart but its still only $206.99
12-07-2009 08:04 PM
kaycee83 Man, are they still on sale?...That place. I placed an order for 4 BFG KM2's. They had a special $100 off, free shipping. Would of only been like $707 or something. I wait like 4 days & they tell me they are out of stock until 1/15/10..I'm like ohhh nice, they didn't say out of stock in the shopping cart. So i ended up with the Mickey Thompson MTZ's.
12-07-2009 07:59 PM
Vaultzz Mine was on sale at 4WD.com, I got $30 off and free ground shipping. It was $206.99 after everything!
12-07-2009 07:53 PM
kaycee83 Hahaha. Are you serious? I ALMOST got one from the shop where i had my lift installed. I told them what i wanted & they called me with a price of around $700 something installed. I looked at 4wd.com and it was like $550 for me to buy, i told them to forget it. I can bolt the thing on for less then that. I'm liking this one tho if i end up getting one Poison Spyder Customs:
12-07-2009 07:48 PM
Vaultzz Yup

I'm kinda annoyed on how hard it is to turn left out of my street cause I can't pull forward enough to see the on coming cars lol
