And also did the exterior plastic "restore" process.
How'd you do that restore?! My rear bumper is a diff shade then the rest of my cladding.

Ill take a pic of the stuff I used. Works good, leaves a residue for the first few days. But mine has weird streaks in the plastic. Like something got spilled on it. Works great on the black handles/mirrors.

i can imagine that would be tough to swallow. Mine will soon become my toy & get retired from the daily grind soon enough too. And I will miss it no doubt.

I literally did some mall crawlin...took these in the mall parking lot after getting out of work at 7am.





I am in love with this Jeep about as much as any vehicle I've ever owned. Can't wait to get the BB and 31's on it.

nice work on the bumper. Looks almost stock. The front tint is nice to have done. I drove mine for 7 years before I finally had my fronts done & wished I woulda done it month 1 into ownership.

Tint is always the first thing I do to a vehicle when I get it. I had my Caprice for about 5 or 6 years with no tint. I got it done and have had every vehicle since done within a couple days of registration.

If you do it, tape off mirrors, paint, windows and stuff so you don't smear it on those areas. Stuff wont come off for a long time. I had to use a razor to get it off the window and mirrors...

Ok lets see what I did today !

1. Removed R/S door and replaced the upper & lower hinge pin and bushings. ( The motorcycle jack works out well, its stable and I can use it to work on it without needing another person )

2. Worked on D/S overhead lamp door switch

3. Removed front Bumper Cover and installed my $20 Tow Hooks

4. Removed small Overhead display assembly and stuck in some $10 Junkyard lenses in it and re-installed it !

5. Figure out whats next ???????????

Looking at a used light bar for $50
And have to go over the Truck I think my front swaybar bushing are bad maybe I'll just wait for the 2'' Lift that's going in the front.
The rear I may leave or go 1'' or 5/8'' as its already a bit higher then the front.
