Took 2 of the 3 kids, loaded up the YJ and went on the Barrett Lake Jeep Trail. Pretty good wheelin' - but had WAY too many problems with the OBA (and therefore the ARB's - gotta fix that!) A good time was had by all.

Has anyone ever painted the the rails? If so how did you go about it?

Put a couple of good coats of the etching primer(the color is grean),let dry an hour or so and spray the black on.
Here is his answer, helped me out alot

Just finished my brake job and wow! Replacing that wheel cylinder gave my brake pedal its strength back and the old Heep stops pretty good now that it actually has shoes on the drum brakes.

Now onward to my torn muffler

U.P.S. delivered my Smittybuilt XRC front bumper today. Installed it and mounted Warn m8000. If anybody gets an XRC front bumper and you have a winch, mount the winch before you mount the bumper! Not enough room to get the winch mount bolts in while bumper is on the jeep!

Nice bumper! Lite! Should hold up well though.
