Maybe abortion is a harsh word, I just don't dig it. The olive paint is cool, hard to pull off on a YJ. However, all those bolt holes make me cringe, as well as the holes cut into the front fenders for those aux lights. However, like I said, if it puts a smile on your face, keep doing whatever makes you happy.

I like my camo..

I also dig the Camo-Clad stuff that I almost went with on the bronco. My buddy has Camo clad on his Toyota which looks pretty badass. If I went camo again, I'd probably go that route. Or do the same styling I've always done.

I'm not fond of the solid "camo" thing but that's me. I would however weld the holes, grind them down then repaint, or finish off the look with flat fenders.

Think those aux lights were there due to being a Renegade model as well as all the bolt holes.

yes true, going to use of those bolt holes to mount ammocans where the top of the rear fender would be.

Is that camo rollbar padding, or are my eyes playing tricks on me?
