Nope, everything came black from the factory except the bumpers/cladding. I still don't understand why Jeep would use a greyish-brown color for bumpers and cladding and a different color for everything else.

The lights were very easy. Just a pain to mask the reverse part of it. At $5 a can, you can't beat it...especially b/c it's not permanent and requires no prep work!

Welcome! Looks good. I'm not a fan of blacked out tail lights or head lights but you did a pretty good job. A bb is very easy to install, I have a small section in the 1st page of my build thread showing some pics of when we installed a bb in my brother's WJ. Keep up the good work!

Black and white looks good, also not a fan of the tinted tail lights - I guess it's all personal choice.

The black looks really good with the white, on most other colors I think the factory color is the way to go but the black really pops on the white.

I've got a 2000 WJ with 266,000 and the angry ***** just keeps on running. Do the regular maintenance and she'll keep running for years. The inline 6 engine is damn near indestructible.

Just took a ~100mile drive and decided to test out this whole "driving at 55mph gets way better MPG" thing.

Set the cruise at 55mph after filling up the tank and resetting the computer. It was kind of annoying only going 55mph....but I love the fuel economy!

Plastidipped the wheels yesterday. I'm pretty happy with how they look. Update to the plastidip on the bumpers/cladding....I noticed some spots it have been rubbed off. I touched them up for now but I will eventually peel it all off and either paint or use bedliner now that I know I like the black.


Also, I was lubing the chassis (which I've neglected for far too long) and grease came out the bottom after maybe 3 pumps. Is this normal or are my seals bad?

Dude, my moms 00' WJ has 300,000 on it... **** incredible.. She had the engine replaced around 290k only cause she tried driving with a blown head gasket(poor Jeepie :[ ) ... Same trans, same everything.my 99' WJ will last just as long I'm almost at 165K(and I maintain mine much better). my fellow Jeepers agree that the I6 is infinitely more reliable than the V8

The v8 worries me because at least twice I've run pretty warm due to a faulty fan relay. I6 no prob. V8 would be a lot of warping on the head at least.

My v8 overheated 3 times and still runs strong. Its not garaunteed to ruin your engine, just more likely in the v8.
