I think if you make all the gold black, you will be surprised how much you like it.

Nice rig., those old step rails looked really bad, nice work.

2.5" catback

Did you feel any horsepower increase with the installation of this exhaust?

hmm, should do the gold strips white, like the arctic white WJ's i think that pure white looks awesome, but then mud...ugh. But with your already black details, black will look good too.

I'd also like to know where you got the lift from.
$200 is a hell of a deal. I have a white zj and pretty much what I want to do to mine, you have done to yours.. minus a few little things.. but wheels, tires, lift.. things like that.
Nice work man.
