let's hear some cheap cosmetic things you've done
 
Anything cheap that can be done at home. Like paint things? Or something cheap that really makes your Jeep one of a kind

headlight and grill inserts painted black........also tape off the raised portion of the hood and use spray on bed liner on that and the cowel...turned out pretty good

mossyoakwrangler 02-14-2013 05:29 AM

I may have to do that. My Jeep is all black and yellow. I painted some suspension parts. Drive shafts. Diff covers and the ac heat vents all yellow

sethert 02-14-2013 05:33 AM

Scratches from brush and trees are always cheap and most of the time unique.

kfdjason7620 02-14-2013 07:47 AM

I've always wanted to paint the raised part of the hood black and the recessed part on the door where the handles are

Renewed my faded fenders with black krylon fusion. Still need to hit the bumpers and cheap nerf bars (thanks for that PO :rolleyes:) with some rustoleum.

jeepjeeptj 02-14-2013 10:33 AM

replaced all the window zipper pulls with zip ties (that wont break), and made braided door straps out of 550 cord

Bedlined fenders, bumpers, headlight bezels, rocker panels, interior dash and door panels. LineXed entire exterior and interior. Changed out dash bulbs for superbright LEDs.

I just did it this year when it started getting cold, probably in October. It's held up well so far there are no scratches. I really like it it changes the whole feel of the interior

$5.00 led light mounted in the spare tire center cap. Re-used the stock wiring.

I took the carpet out of the floor of the Jeep. Stuff kept kept clanking and sliding around back there. I had an old rubber truck bed liner from my pickup laying around, so I cut a piece to fit in the Jeep. There was enough left for a friend to do his JK Unlimited too.

I have been thinking about getting a rubber liner for a small pickup and trimming it to fit the back of my LJ for a while.

I've decided to take out my milk jugs and replace with end caps all around. Noticed the rear ones seem to push salt/snow ect up the corner liners so hopefully the end caps show eliminate that vicious cycle going.

Hood decals, painted doors and lots of dirt. This isn't the best picture but it is all I have right now.
