I voted 5 because the paint looks to be in great shape and 73K miles for an 03 isnt bad at all just means it was their daily driver. Good pick up man. Now paint those headlight bezels black or something

haha, fixed the "truck" part. and i dont know if you can tell, but the front two flares on a couple of the pictures are a little wider, i bought four flares off of an '06 wrangler when i bought the jeep. the guy had them lying around his shop so i said what the hell and bought them for $100. once i get the back two on i'm gonna armorall them and see how they look. should look better than they do now

-the headlight bezels and flares = good times for you to spend with your jeep
-love the color!
-you have brake light cages

welcome to the jeepin world and make sure you wave!!!

yeah, having both hard and soft tops was one of the reasons why i bought this jeep, not a couple others i looked at. the color was another big part. its nice and subtle but ive seen jeeps this color lifted with all the gizmos and gadets that look amazing.

i just gathered all the stuff (sandpaper, emory cloth, primer, paint and clearcoat) from my dads work to paint the headlight bezels black but im still making the final decision. what do you think i should do? haha


and i've already started waving

paint those bad boys and don't look back. thats my opinion. i liked my chrome ones but then i painted them black and i look back to how dumb chrome looked. haha but chrome looks really good against your color jeep. if you are just torn between decisions, pick you up another set of the bezels so you have black and chrome.

Paint them black, they will also match with your rear taillight guards. Black accessories on your color jeep look so BA, then you can get yourself some black steelies to complete the look.

welcome! but if your talking about painting them, just sand paper them down and hit them with any color black spray paint you want. it will eventually start comin off after a few months, but then you just pull it off and paint it back haha
