Today, I ordered some new lights for the YJ

Some TJ Markers for the TJ flares and some 4" LED Taillights






This is the part # for the LED Tails AutoSmart KL-25108RK
I paid $23.00 for the pair Shipped off Amazon


Saturday I will be picking up a rust free Fender off a 95 YJ , I will also be picking up a few cans of paint so I can paint it before installing the fender and flares.

I will also be picking up some cans of Semi gloss black paint for the hardtop I hope to take it off and get it painted next week some time . I am unsure if I want to keep the TJ flares black or paint them blue to match the factory yj flare color. When I do the TJ flare install I will be removing the steps . I may goto a metal supplier and get some 6x6 by 3/16 angle and make some sliders

I got bored sitting around the house tonight so I started to paint the top flat black. I am gonna hit it with some semi gloss clear when it cures. Tomorrow I will finish up painting the top and installing the TJ flares imageuploadedbyautoguide1379037559.256918.jpgimageuploadedbyautoguide1379037574.571507.jpgimageuploadedbyautoguide1379037589.792565.jpgimageuploadedbyautoguide1379037615.234521.jpg

Thanks. I am going to paint the spare tire bumper, Antenna mount , and wiper arms still I can't wait to see it with the Tj flares and flush mount LED Tails.

If I make my own rock sliders they will run me 130.00 So I may make them in a month or two.

You'll need a EL12 flasher relay they are a few bucks, I have read others have swapped the Hazzard Relay for the Turnsignal one either way they are less then 10 dollars .

Here are some semi finished pics of the top I used 5 cans of paint and a few light Coats. I still need to shoot a couple more coats and paint the wiper arms.

Today-Sunday I will be painting a replacement fender, removing the steps and installing the TJ flares possibly the LED tails also depending on how soon they arrive.

I have to say Southern California vehicles are awesome. 24 year old bolt came out easy no rust and I didn't have to use kroil or pb blaster
