After that happened, I replaced it with a 2004 Rubicon in White that I love even more. The various creature comforts are nice, especially with a 1 hour commute each way. The PO had a lot of chrome that I hate, and they put windshield mounted lights that were taken off by the time I go it. The windshield lights messed up the paint there, but I have a plan for that. Here is what it looked like when I got home (the chrome gas cap cover is already off):
Primed up the Chrome:
Here is the first coat of Semi-Gloss Black. I prefer it to satin and gloss:
The other pieces in primer:
The Black Grill Inserts are in. You can see the chrome sway bar cover Anyone want to give me a stock one
Here you can see I took the chrome tail light covers off. I still need to get rid of the chrome sway bar cover and side steps:
I also got to play with the lockers. I love them so much. This was taken at the high school in town. There is a parking lot lined with rocks. That was the biggest rock there, came up to just above the bumper at the highest point
There is more to come. I made an order last night for a couple of things.
improvement, however id paint the euro tail light guards semi gloss, and for the side steps id sell them, dope on the grill inserts, isn't it bad how bad they look after a couple years i see yours turned peely like, gross but they look better now
They actually were perfect chrome when we went to look at the Jeep. When the power washed it though, it did that.
As for the rear guards, they are waiting on sand blasting. My dad's friend has one. I will probably sell the tube steps. I want savvy sliders with a real step, then I would be able to sell both the Rubi rocker guard and the tube step, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen for a while.
Edit: Yeah, I will get rid of the License Plate frame soon. I prefer the license plate to be wrapped around the front bumper.
I'd skip the bedliner man.....it becomes more of a PITA than the cool idea it first seemed. And for most, the jugs are usually the first to come off. Personally, I'm a fan of chopping the ends right off the stock bumper.
