i am sure this has been an issue that has been brought up before but i could not find a thread on it anywhere. after installing my 1.25'' BL there isw the infamous gap between body and frame. does anyone know of any covers or mats that will cover this gap up? i want to say that i have seen some before but i just cant remember where. tia

performance accessories has such mats.
but i can live with these gaps. that makes me able to clean the frame behind the stock mats after wheeling...

here are the gaps of a 2" BL:

I don't consider the gap left after a 1.25" BL even close to being worth worrying about. :)

All I did was to grab a can of the rubberized undercoating from wally world and sprayed the gap. Since mine was Yellow it stuck out like a sore thumb before I coated it.

I would have to agree with you nicholas-eric, however, i would like to find one to fill in the space in the rear that exposes that gas tank now.... I checked out performance accessories and all i could find was the 4 piece set for each corner.... any ideas where to find one to cover that gap up in the rear??? BTW, i'm not tryin to hi-jack ya tiger22, just thought if you have a BL also, you might have this same problem in the rear.. :)

well i will say that the front and rear gap sticks out much more and i hate the way it looks but i dont care for the gap in the wheel wells either. and even though nobody else will notice, i know its there and everytime i look at it i notice it. just one of those picky things i guess...

take a thick rubber/plastic piece and cut it and then bolt it on there.. make sure there is nuthing behind there :) (i read that off a website that was selling stuff to cover that only they sell you stuff already pre cut)

thank you, i have tried to keep it as different from other jeeps in my area as i could. only problem is now everyone around is getting black wheels for their junk:( as for the seat covers, i got them from camotruckseats.com. they have a custom app. for each vehicle and are made out of cordura instead of neoprene. i think they were around $135 (per pair) for the advantage max-4 design.

got any pics of your rig w/ the bb and bl I'm about to put a bl on mine w/ 2in springs in front. I dig those seatcovers 2 do they make them in desert camo ? and are they waterproof ?

Just be creative. I like the idea with the fog lights in the gap in the rear lol thats a killer idea. If it bothers you so bad, take off the BL ...and run smaller tires. I dont have a problem with it but i run a 3" BL. and i got bored and cut some diamond plate up and stuffed in the holes.

its not that it bothers me "that bad", but i am sure as a fellow jeep owner you are picky about some things on your rig also. its just one of those things that i notice. i love the look of that diamond plate also. i will probably end up doing the same. how did you mount it to the body?

seat covers- i am not for sure if they make a dessert camo or not. they shield out water very well but they are two piece so if any runs onto the side the seat might get a little wet.

yep those are the ones that i saw. i have been thinking about attempting to make some out a thin rubber welcome mat. all that would need to be done for the front is to trace out the existing ones but go an 1.25'' wider on all sides. the back is where i am stuck.

hey tiger22, there is a little lip that hangs down about an inch or so in the rear that you could probably drill some small holes in and mount something there. I really like that black diamondplate look that Mudweiser has. I think I'm gonna try to go that route. I think theres a little lip up front that this could be done on too.
