Sorry it took me so long to reply, it's been work,school,work,school ect...

I just used self tapping screws to hold it on haha

Basically i bought the jeep after it had been t-boned (former high school girl's mall crawler) and her grandpa just filled in the rocker with bondo to get the shape back okay enough to cover it with the plastic rocker cladding. I had both bottoms of the front fenders rusted out and I took the plastics off because I have to paint the doors to match and them bedline the lower part. Just temporary because I'm gonna cut out all of the outer rocker sheet metal and fab up rock sliders to tuck up into the rocker, basically just to keep the profile really low on the sliders. I was mostly concerned about covering up that bondo and rust, people laugh at my red doors enough and I don't want them thinking I was the one who used a can on filler on the rocker haha

That looks good 98xj guy, the bumper too. I'd just beef the tire carrier up some more. I dunno if you plan on wheeling it or not, but I've seen some people come down a ledge and the spare tire grab the ledge and bend/rip the whole mount into the hatch. Pretty easy to destroy not only your bumper, but the mounts, probably the framerails, taillights, glass, hatch, etc... There's quite a bit of leverage on that when you think of how much weight and everything is being supported, let alone if you end up snatching or grabbing it on something on the trails.

I didn't do much but found the source of my mystery loss of coolant. I haven't fully looked but somewhere around lower radiator hose or radiator it's self. While I was under there found the source of my slowly disappearing tranny fluid. One of the lines to the tranny cooler is coated in fluid. Blah new projects.

Night shaded the taillights and attempted to help a friend remove a broken tcase. Might need to get it cut off. I'll post some pics of the taillights tomorrow! Calling for some snow up here in pa finally!

On the other hand, one of the first jobs I did on my was replace the amber ones with clear units for a cleaner, more modern look.
