Cheap TJ Mods

I added some surface mount Led tail lights with a clear ring around the outside for the backup lights. Also cut the front bumper.

I just bought some yellow webbing to make a new one that is a little more flashy
Nice! I might have to try this out!

I just purchased a 1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ, and it's my first JEEP! I am so excited to start some simple mods. How many cans of rustoleum would it take to cover all fenders and door handles?

Thanks

I just did mine last weekend. If you're using the Rustoleum Bed Liner spray, 17oz cans, I'd say grab three cans. I got by with two but it was close. I did also do my mirrors and windshield wipers but they didn't take a lot of paint. I got two good coats on everything and finished up with a clear coat. Make sure you sand everything first. Also, the tip about dish soap is critical. Years of Armor all applications needs to be removed.

What would the benefit of this be? I skidded out on a turn the other day (the first day with my new jeep) and ended up teatoring on the edge of a solid 75-feet-to-the-bottom-of -a-creekbed. Would it have helped a newer driver of a manual get out of there with having to call the cavalry to tow me out?

Fuel Door Mod

I was looking at replacing my fuel fill cup, mine was broken. Found one on Amazon fairly cheap. When I got it found out it was for a JK. Problem was the opening on a TJ is bigger than the JK. Me being too lazy to return it I decided to see what I needed to do to mount it. I have access to a waterjet so I made a mounting ring and a spacer. This way I was able to install rivet nuts to be able to mount it securely.

At least for my 2000 TJ the only heat shield was on the carpet, not the tub. It was dead easy to bedline the tub, just pull the carpet out. Then I replaced the janky smelly old carpet with BedRug.

I agree, my heat shield was on my carpet as well. I pulled the carpet and had line-x put in the entire tub. Best mod I have done, it is fantastic. I also have some Bedrug carpet that is easy to instal l and remove if I just want a different look.

JFON, that ghost decal is pretty sweet!
Inspired me to get something made for my Ford 9" diff, I'll test out some ideas in about a weeks time.

Added rocker panel covers to hide the rust on the passenger side. I removed the the fender extenders and made the panels from running board tread from a Suburban. $10 at the junk yard! Plasti-dipped them to match the fenders.

looks good however that will not stop or slow the rust down. It might even make it rust faster

I chipped off all the loose paint/rust, then used a wire brush drill attachment to grind off as much as I could get. Then I taped off about 4" and sprayed the rockers with Rust Reformer.
Hopefully that will keep it from spreading.

My first post, and although I'm not posting pics of my mods yet, I am happy to report that I Have read all 11,063 posts and have learned plenty. Thank you to all who have posted and commented.

I only made it half way when I first joined. Found good ideas for sure.

I took me 5 weeks to read. I wish I had the time to read it straight through. Looks like the thread doesn't have the life it once had though.
