The only thing I'm not 100% on with it is the red front bumper part. I think if it was all black it'd look great.

I like the black grill. I think it looks better than color match myself.

I think I'm pretty settled with the black grill. Just took me awhile to like it. However I'm really wanting a new bumper to go with it now. Ive been looking at the tomkin or olympic front bumpers with a push bar. Well see how kind my paychecks are in the future.

Check out Nates 4x4 for bumpers. They're good quality and decent prices.

I'm running his recessed winch front bumper.

Had to do some repair work today. My tailpipe rattle has become unbearable so I went to check it out and found a broken hanger and a hole by the mounting clamp.



Went to autozone and found a generic mounting kit and a shiny tailpipe thing. Here the shiny was only .50 cents more than a chunk of pipe so I went with that.



If a sticker gives me more horsepower just think what this will do!

Went out to my jeep this morning and found these things pecking at their reflection in my door.



So I chased them down the driveway. They'll be back.

My headliner has been pinned up since I bought it. So, its warm out and I'm out of excuses to not fix it.

Here's a before pic. Kinda looks like a big ceiling pillow.



Took a little bit of time to remove. You really need to be careful to not break the trim hangers over the front windows.



Scraping the fuzz off isn't too bad. Got a bunch of it stickied to the hood of my uncle's black xj. Oops.

Finally got the new fabric glued on. I tried the 3m 77 and 90. The 3m 90 is the better choice by far. The 77 never really seemed to dry. Also, it takes about 2 cans.



Final product! Can you say awesome!!

If it helps, staples work better than push pins. lol
