Rustoleum semi-gloss black is very, very close. The color is right on; the finish is close.
Easier to use than touch-up paint.

I see this topic posted from time to time, and I just don't get it.
It's harder on your clutch (which means $$ when you have to replace it sooner than would otherwise be the case)

I've been sleeping solo on the Coleman Quikbed in the back of my '12 JKUR essentially every time I've taken it camping. I like it mainly because it's quieter, warmer, and not affected by wind and...

If you wheel, go with the monotone as they'll not show the abuse like the painted variety.
They do fade in the sun, but there are plenty of posts on how to deal with that.

Also 2X on the front, and yes they make a difference.
The Mopar are bigger than I expected, and I have had one hang up on a rock on the trail such that it broke a couple of the fender flair clips

Agree with using the Staun tire deflators
And I also have a Viair 90P that connects to the battery and works just fine if you're not in a hurry. About $80

If you have stock wheels, you can mount a single light on the stock spare tire carrier and have the light shine through the spokes of the rim. Easy to fabricate and mount, and it works pretty well. ...

Do NOT "rough up the finish". There's a protective coating on all aluminum wheels; if you remove it, the aluminum can oxidize (ask me how I learned the hard way...)

Look at the tire carrier carefully. It could have cracks in it and, if so, should definitely be replaced. You should be able to find them cheap from someone who has upgraded; OEM is some ridiculous...

Yes, of course; they both have breather tubes. Same process for both. And both breather tubes can be extended if water crossings are in your jeeping future.

I have the Mopar and, like everyone else who's posted, like the look.
But it's surprising how much dust and mud still gets in there around the cap; wish is was better sealed.

I think it highly unlikely that your spring is bent. Springs flex but they shouldn't bend; otherwise they wouldn't be springs. Take the spring out and look at it from every angle. Lay it flat and...
