I have a black 01 sahara, keep the black top and get full black doors, it looks real good that way, ill post up some pics tomorrow, also get a wheel eraser at your local autoparts or auto paint supply store and take off the pin stripe and the "wrangler" and "4.0L" stickers, it helps the look tons...atleast those are my opinions

The bumpers are there to stay for a while, cause I still haven't decided if I wanna keep em or lose em, also there aren't any funds right now for new bumpers becuase I am saving up for a re-gear, I trimmed the flares using using an exacto knife, I trimmed them an inch.
Also when you get new tires would you be willing to send one of the 33x10.5 my way?

I finally have speakers in the front of my jeep, they were 30 buck at autozone, 180 max watts, and 80 watt RMS, they took a little not so pretty rigging and improvising to get them in, but they are in and sound great, I will post up pics later in the week of the rigging.

Got her all cleaned up today, I took the wheels off and scrubbed them, then did a wash and wax, she looks good all cleaned up:



I also re-torqued the wheel spacers.

On sunday I decided to put the hardtop on because the temperature is dropping and my soft top can't take it, it's old and on it's last leg.

I also got my other project running this weekend, took me a year to find a wheel for it but here's a Poser pic of the two projects.

I need to finish painting the bike(Flat black with flat silver strips)but that will have to wait until winter.

I'm not usually a fan of black tops on black jeeps, but it looks good on your jeep. Where did you get the LED's, I've been wanting to do that

for the guage cluster i followed this link:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/ga...nstall-752937/

For the Ac control/fan/temp I followed this link: See post #107

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/ga...37/index8.html

And thanks for the coments, I will be replacing the sport bar covers with the best top water proof ones that match the top, only replacing to have a water proof fit for the winter, hopefully the half top meets my expectations, I think that replacing the sport bar covers witht he top matching ones will clean up the look a bit

Very nice look -- always wondered what it would be like. Sorry to be a stickler, but did you add or replace your existing lights (underneath)?

I'm wondering about adding something so that they would be on everytime I pull the headlights on, yet at the same time don't want something too bright? (I just find it to be way too dark in the footwell areas w/o any light.) Do you happen to have any suggestions?

I still have the normal footwell bulbs in, The leds came with a plug that plugs into your 12v socket, and there is a switch on the plug, and they aren't distracting when you are driving, Here are some pics:
