OK bother .. Your really good working with the DP.. .So ... If this is where your going I'm putting in my vote for your next project...

x1 for Rear Quarter guards, that wrap around the head lights. I was thinking you could get trailer lights like the JCR ones ...

Rear quarter gaurds: I like the Orfab ones with the rail attached.

I am trying to keep some balance, but in retrospect, if it'd all been bedliner you'd all be cheering.

Nope, I hate bedliner, what an awful fad to take over jeep people.

I'd rather see a bunch of chrome DP that actually offers some protection than crappy DIY bed liner that looks clean for about the first week.

I like the diamond plate. I've been thinking my XJ might look nice with some chrome stuff. It's a good color to match.

I really wish my XJ was the color of my ZJ, but its one of those "careful what you wish for" things. My '87 was white w/ chrome trim and chrome rockers, and always clean. The dp gives a roughneck appearance that just wouldn't do the same on white.
This color is growing on me. In the next month or so I'm gonna 3000 the whole thing and then a 3 stage buff. That'll make it look like new.
Anyways, Quadratec sells Warrior products. The rocker kit I have comes in black dp also.

Will that get rid of oxidation? I have a **** ton of it on my caddy. It would look so much better if I could get rid of that....

The caddy: what color, year, and is there any actual damage to the paint?
