i went done to a local paint supplier and he looked around for a paint code, but couldnt find it. it wasa repaint anyway. he showed me what he thought it was so we went with it. since my paint is a little faded its a little off,but not to bad. they can color match, but its exspensive.

I removed the runs or sags today. here is how i did it. take a single edge razor. using a screwdriver and burnish the end. it makes it into a mini scraper. the end is bent over. you then put scotch tape over the ends. this keeps it of the surrounding paint. just drag it across the run until your happy with the amount removed. then take polishing compound and buff it out. then i apply swirl remover and it looked pretty good . it is a little time consuming and i could of removed more paint but since its not a show car it was good enough. i went ahead and used the swirl remover on the rest of the jeep. in the pic of the hood you can see to the front is a little dull and to the right you can see how it shined up nice. i like single stag paint for this reason. clear coats are generally to thin and once the sun degrades them there toast.

do you guys think that 3x3 angle would work for sliders? i happen to have enough of it to do it. it might be a little tricky to mount .

The only thing I hate about your YJ is that its not mine. lol

I think if your skilled enough give it a shot for the sliders.

what till its finished then ill let you have it. on the sliders ,the reason i am a little hesitant using 3" is because off the inside tub and bottom lip mounting points are limited with 3" material. i am also putting a 1- 1/2 " pipe that's cut in half along the bottom of the slider. if that makes any sense. i would have to weld studs at that point to the back of the slider's where the pipe mounts.

my rear tire is still rubbing when i go over an obstacle even with the new 6" wide flare. i should have mounted them higher up i guess. i lined up the bottom of the flares to the tub as per instructions. what do you think about a 1" body lift?

thats what i plan on doing this summer i want to go with a 1.25" body lift though. The only thing that has been holding me back was some people say you have to notch inside the tub so that you can shift into 2 4 and reverse and if i do mine i want to do it without messing with the carpet

I'm running into the same issue myself... if you're not too keen on the BL, you can always put some extended bumpstops in there remember.
