I think it will look pretty sweet in flat black! when i make my own half doors, that is probably how I'll do mine also. my jeep is also a silver '04

Thanks. I definitely like them better than the pro comps I had on before.

Hit the JY today and grabbed a couple ZJ washer bottles and a set of cross rails for the roof rack. Listed in classifieds. If anyone needs anything let me know and I'll check for it next time I go.

Thanks. I was with a friend who was driving a lifted XJ. We promised ourselves we would get a lot more pics next time. The trail actually went left down the rocks and accross a river at the top of a set of falls. Would have been much better pictures but we failed.

Did you get the hinges figured out yet?

Also I saw in another thread you asked about a Redwood ashtray. I saw this at a Jeep JY yesterday.

I got side tracked from the doors with some house maintenance recently. I have removed the pins from the hinges on the half doors but haven't tried on the full doors yet. I have tried cutting the pin and prying it out, drilling it out and, cutting flush at the head. No matter how I do it, the hinges end up all bent out of shape so I have given in to the fact that I will need to find a way to bend them back. I am thinking a vice and BFH will do the trick.

Thanks for the heads up on the ashtray. That one looks like a light wood grain rather than the Overland redwood. At least it doesn't match what I have but I guess I never confirmed if my overland has the correct wood grain. I just assumed it did.

Sorry for the bad pic here. Had a good day wheeling today. Here was a close call. I was a little off camber. The pic doesn't really do it justice. Just the change in weight from me getting out of the jeep almost sent it down into the rocks. The trail went down to the right from where I am pointing in the picture.
