if i were you i would drill out that bolt and re tap the threads because when you weld that cup back on it can get in your way without being able to remove it easily.

i hate the emblems lol. i might leave the jeep one on the hood but paint it black. the door emblems are for sure coming off. the PO had body work on the drivers door and the shop hung the emblems wrong so its not level. then on the back i'm taking all the stuff off other than the two stickers i've personally put on. i like to relocate my limited emblem somewhere just dont know yet. and as for the mesh in the grille, i really want a 5.9 grille. they look so much better and i could use the 20 HP gain hahaa

yeah My brother did that with his Orvis swapped it with a 5.9 looks way way better. People charge a arm and a leg for them though. But its worth it. Also yeah i like the deep purple that you got going on with yours. But i would shave them as well. But whats your class coming to portland for? Blazer game, Mt. Hood, lol Ice cold coast?

lol yeah i like the 5.9 grilles. yeah my 3 colors i'd choose from for my jeep originally would have been black, green like your brothers, and purple like mine. and i'm not sure yet, i'm studying landscape architecture here in kansas so its probably a plaza or garden lol. what annoys me is the one time i'll probably ever get to go to portland i cant even go wheeling with some fellow JF members haha
