My bumpers. When I bought the Jeep the bumpers were chrome. That's nice and all but kinda clashes with what I'm going for so Plasti dip it is.
I've attached a few before and after pics. Let me know whatcha think.
Don't ask about the red hitch. It was a spur of the moment decision......a bad spur of the moment decision that will be corrected shortly. :hide:

I eliminated the side steps. They are for sale if anyone is interested. I like the look better without them.

Looks good, and IMO I like the red hitch, you can use it if you do other small red details.

It didn't look as bad as I thought it would but it doesn't go with the motif of the vehicle which will eventually have some neon green accents on it.

Oh well in that case yea the red has to go, if you change your mind though, you can keep the red and paint the headlight bezels red.
It looks better without the runningboards.

Looks a lot better...but why use something temporary that will eventually peel?

I am eventually going to have them powder coated along with my wheels but I have to save up to buy an extra set of junker wheels, new tires for the powder coated wheels, and of course the cost to powder coat. The plasti-dip should hold me over till I can afford all that. :punk:

I must be cheap because that sounds like an expensive approach, but I know people get attached to their existing bumpers and wheels. ;)
