Thank you, sincerely, for the great write-up! It's a fantastic, easy-to-follow read.

So you've used the Rustoleum Truck Bed Liner for all the painting you've been doing, right? Because it looks incredible.

Did you say you used it on your fender flares? Or your actual fender? Cause I painted my fender flares with Duplicolor bedliner and the second they scraped on something it peeled right off. I like the idea of a bedliner on the fender flares if there is one that wont peel off the plastic. I prepped for EVER and it still didn't work.

The way I see it, a Jeep is like sex-when it's good it's terrific, and when it's bad it's still pretty good!

Thanks, I only used the bed liner on the metal fender not the flares. I plan on leaving the flares stock looking so the whole jeep isn't one color. I would think the rustoleum bed liner would work well for the flares though.

I've been busy as of late but did manage to get in alittle jeep work. Sanded the door and painted it, replaced inside door handle and resprayed the door interior with Duplicolor. Had painted the door interiors previously with Fusion and it looked to black and glossy. The dupli-color looks much better. Still waiting to have enough time to install ball joints, new radiator, Savy/currie steering setup etc....





Also had my hoist from Harbor Freight show up so I can make a lift for the hardtop.

Thank You, really I'm surprised more people don't do it. The only down side I've found thus far is it is a bit of a pain to clean. i use a scrub brush and dry it with the leaf blower to prevent water spots.

So it's been slow going with work to the Jeep. But I did install the electric hoist so I can run the Jeep without any top for the first time. A few things to do yet but very happy with the hoist.

Thanks, The hoist is the best thing I've done for the jeep yet. Because it allowed me to drive around today with no top

Thank You, I'm back and forth with leaving some of the green or not.



So I had alittle time tonight and started in on installing the new HD Currie/Savvy steering system






Piece by piece the heep is turning into a zombie slaying jeep.

Looks awesome, what was the exact process you did for the gun metal look? Ive been kicking color combo ideas around for my YJ, and that looks killer. Id love to know exactly what you did, so I can try it myself on some of my spare sheet metal first.
