I always do mine. These were painted before I first put them on the diffs. It was winter & I had time on my hands, so I went crazy. All the red was hand painted with a brush. But seriously except for cleaning all the shipping oil off, I don't go too deep into prep for these. My XJ is 95% trail & the paint routinely gets gouged off on rocks & roots. When I take her to a show touch up is a breeze.

But then again, I was the same way once I joined. Search button will be your best friend as there is an abundant amount of information in previous threads. All right back on topic;
