The diamond plate is all the way around. This piece on the hatch is a tailgate cap.

The front end has gotten its share of attention too
The original air dam was warped to death, but I didn't want to cut the flares yet. So I built a new airdam from a bed rail cap.
And the new chrome grill and bezels cost me $12 thanks to working for a body shop
The chrome KC slimlites w/ chrome stone guards were a stroke of luck. I'd been drooling over these in the Quadratec catalog. Then I found the box set at a mod shop on clearance!!

They fit extremely well, as if they were made for }eeps...who'd a' thought.

This tow bar has been an interesting issue. I wanted it gone first, but it's welded on, so it got to stay...with some dp

I know it all seems like a bit much, but I think it goes well with the metallic paint and has a stout look.

To round out the story about the dp, I love the way it appears to match the paint

I recently acquired the tube for the tire rack for the roof. I also just got my latest idea to get rid of the end caps on my bumpers. They don't match my rig cuz they came from the jy.

My situation with my shop is in the crapper. My aunt and uncle are getting divorced and the shop is getting sold. I'll be doing all my mods driveway style from here on out. I wonder how the trailer park manager will react to me welding in my yard?(

Welcome to my world, start saving cardboard boxes if you have a gravel driveway/parking lot.
