I did this to my frame. I asked the local gas station if he would mind if i could use his lift. He is a cool guy and said no prob. Took me about an hour. I hit everthing i could reach. Next weekend i topped it off with rustoleum. I think it looks great.

That one is simple and easy to do. Just did it the other day and doesn't cost anything.

jeep7797 no, just used a cut off wheel on die grinder because I didnt want to but a hole saw. But be real careful that flange isnt real big to cover any mistakes you might make.

Did u use a 4 1/2" hole saw? I need one and don't want to pay 30$ for a tool I will only use 2 times

I'ma do the tail lights as well once i pick up a hole saw, and have the guts to cut into the tub
Very true another thing is make a cut out of card board and measure 2 or even 3 times make sure u keep the whole saw lubed and I am going to use the oem plug off my old lights so I can have a quick connect and going with white lens red bulbs I will put pics up when I do it

Drill a small hole in the bottom of your side mirrors so when it rains or you wash it the water will drain out and not run down and streak your doors.

Also the more leds generally mean the brighter the light, Its almost blinding how bright these things are...

POR15ing the frame is also a good excuse to do a 1" body lift:
"I had to lift the body to paint the top of the frame and when I lifted it the body mounts were so bad I had to replace them..."

Jeepfreak83 50$ round taillights flush with body will be doing this one soon my self

jeep7797 Nick, what are these mods? Ive never heard of any reason to drill the mirrors.

jeep7797 Id really like to POR 15 my frame but I guess to do it right Id have to jerk the body off and Ive never done that...

BLK00TJ not really a mod, but I know if I had a garage I'd be bustin' rust and paint/spray as needed under mine. The last time I was under my jeep I was surprised how much rust there was but it was too hot to worry about. Now it's too cold.

Cheap mods?

With the weather getting colder and many people laid off or otherwise, does anyone have any good "cheap" mods to kill some time in the garage? There is only so much moving things around in the garage I can do before I need to do some actual work out there.
