If it doesn't turn out good, the hood can always be repainted.

It would be darker than this and not show up as near much as you see here.
And like I said, the light would have to be just right to see it.
I like that

Wanted something to do so after a trip to home depot with the kid, $20 later, definitely gives it a different look.

This 5.9 has been for sale for a while now, and the price has already been lowered once.
Offer them $2,000

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

Lmfao!!!!

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

These are the only pics I got of wheeling this weekend. We only had a rhino and a grizzly 660. When my zj is done if love to go back out there and wheel. We we're on private land about 30min north of pittsburg,PA.

Another photo taken of my Jeep today.
What's missing in the rear that a stock 5.9 ZJ would have?



When I had the exhaust tailpipe installed last week I had them tuck it up high and put a turn down pipe near the back bumper.
No more stainless steel tip to hang up on things, I think it also gives it a cleaner look.

can possibly find out how far one can go.

What have you done to me? As Oscar Wilde said, I can resist everything but temptation.

I designed the rock guards where they would fit my Niner without having to remove the plastic rocker covers.
With this designed, less ground clearance is loss than what many of the other bolt on ones do.
The lowest point is about 1.25" below the pinch seam and 19 bolts hold each one in place.
They are a little overbuilt using DOM 1.25 od x 0.25 tubing, but better having them extra strong.

I also like being able to grab the inside bars when sliding under the Jeep to do work.
