Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

well i used turtle wax rubbing compound to get all the little scratches out then i put on maguires(sp?) car wax and the engine i used brake parts cleaner to get all the grime off and tire shine. the engine will look good for about 500 miles then the tire shine will attract dust and ill just have to do it again. oh and i used mothers black to back on the flares.

Hey, nice Jeep! 2 questions:

What are those things that protect the door sill? I see a lot of TJs with them but can't find them online.

Do you have a link to your rear bumper? I can't find it anywhere and it looks really nice.

I ordered these from JC Whitney.

The price definitely seems right. Hopefully I'll still feel good about them when I get em.

oh and if anyone is wondering i have used my winch on several occasions...but i got sick of the rust on the fairlead... so i picked up new rollers and clear coated them. I gotta do it again but after about 10 winch jobs the clear coat is surprisingly holding up impressively. so i guess what im saying is all of you with winched you know how cruddy the fairlead can get...just clear coat them every month to two months depending how much you use it.

Now come do mine. Just don't press too hard on my hood as your hand might go through the paper thin sheet metal. Be careful in my doors as well, as they also have a lot of flex when they are so much as touched.
