I am still undecided about the bug deflector so I am not in any hurry to take it off unless someone wants to buy it. Here in NY, we do get a lot of trucks with garbage flying, but I put almost 15k on the last Jeep, and the only chips in the paint were in the windshield frame. So Imped, tell me how I will regret the bug guard in a year? I didn't pay for it.
I did manage to get the chrome tube steps off today, and it makes it look like it sits higher now. It is amazing how much higher this one feels for it being stock. I don't have pics because I helped put a 12'x28' car port (the fully enclosed style) up after class today. I took the steps off in two minutes while taking a short break. Too bad it is so dark out.
I also need to get a pic of the gas cap filler. I used up the last of the Hammered paint I had, and it looks awesome. It has a different look at different angles in the sun. Straight on it looks black, with a big glare, it looks pitted. I finally got that back on. The filler bezel is so faded out that it looks like garbage, and I wasn't up to a refinishing.
As for plans, I don't have any right now until after college. After that, a beast will be born. I do want to sell the Rubi rockers and tubes so that I can buy proper sliders with an integrated step. I hope savvy has one soon in the sub $400 range.
