Little mods i did to TJ
 
Since the weather was warm this weekend I decided to do something to my jeep. Used a sawzall and cut off those stupid "milk jugs" and took off the factory side steps. What a difference doing that made to it. I know it isn't some big mod but it put a big smile on my face!!!

All I did was put decals on my new shocks with the rough country 3.75" lift I just got and slapped the decals on so people know what vehicle to turn to in case of a zombie apocalypse!

Did the same things a couple weeks ago. Very happy i did. Looks 100x better just with that stuff gone

swampbuggy98 11-12-2012 07:19 PM

Let me know and post about the lift, im thinking about that one but then i think another 120 bucks and i could have the 4 inch suspension from rc. im stuck between the two, id like to know about the installation and the ride when youre done plz :thumb:

lys327 11-12-2012 07:23 PM

also made a custom high lift jack mount on the hood....

swampbuggy98 11-12-2012 07:31 PM

Yeah I'll put pics up as soon I get the chance I've heard mixed reviews about rc but we'll see. Anybody on here had any experience with treadwright tires?

You cut the jugs off with a sawzall? Why didn't you just remove the bolts? Just curious.

Svt1333 11-12-2012 07:59 PM

Tried taking bolts off with torx but all it did was spin, so we cut them off and then pried the bolts off with screwdriver. Not gonna use the milk jugs for anything g anyway and the rear pass side was dented from previous owner.

Patrick H 11-12-2012 08:02 PM

Ah. Like I said, just wondering.

BLK00TJ 11-12-2012 08:03 PM

You did step one with the milk jugs, step two is chopping the bumper :D

I finally centered my steering wheel, removed my rear bumper, and polished my aluminum gas tank skid.

Svt1333 11-12-2012 08:08 PM

No problems Patrick, ya it def looks like a diff jeep. I was thinking about cutting bumper some see how it would look. Next is to sand bumpers down and paint them. Any ideas on what grit sand paper to use and paint? Fender flares are also next to get painted. It's the little things for now to make it look better.

Has anybody tried this on the floorpans? I just laid down some spray in bedliner and I'm kinda disappointed and thinkin about goin with roll on bedliner to get some texture.

IMO, it doesn't go on thick enough to really count as a true bedliner. It does do wonders to bumpers, flares, doorhandles, etc though.

Yeah that's why I was a little disappointed but at least it's not gonna just hold water like the factory carpet I'll go with the roll on and see what happens.
