What'd you use, Krylon Fusion?
I used Krylon Fusion satan black. It took four cans and a total of 6 1/2 hours to tear down paint and install. If you are planning on doing this, take your time, the plastic retainers are very brittle especially on the rocker panels covers.

Update from the weekend that was hell...

Noticed Friday night that someone hit me while parked at work, medicine ball dent in my rear bumper, no cracks, but will need to take it off and pop it out; its about 8" wide, 3" deep.

Lots of smoke on Saturday morning, but new (to me) tires (BFG Rugged Trail).

Rough ride on Saturday afternoon, wouldn't start that night for about 5 minutes. Once it warmed up, ran fine. Still lots of smoke at first.

Saturday night, on the 4 mile home trek, Jeep had heat go ice cold and the water temp started rising quick! Pulled over, let cool down, finished the rest of the trek no problem

Sunday bought a Hayes manual, seafoam, engine block cleaner and some Techtron stuff (figured it might help the missin'/sputtering I had when I first start the Jeep)

Sunday night went to run seafoam in it, noticed white/tanish foam; figured I had a blown head gasket.

Wife took it in to the shop for the head gasket, quoted at $1600. Called warranty we have, said our level of protection includes all gaskets and seals... meaning head gasket should be covered.

Waiting to hear back from the shop and warranty adjuster...

Today, I went to a junk yard and picked up a new radio bezel so I could put my pioneer 4300avh in. Also called up another place and I will be picking up a black cargo cover tomorrow for $20 bucks.

Side note: If anybody has any simple ideas that I could grab, I would be willing to ship to you.

I think if I do it, I might just spend a lot of time taping off, because with my luck and the climate around here, mine would all probably just snap right off.

For the life of me I can't find the thread about fixing the air flow to the vents. Not the blend doors but like when the brown **** flies out of the center vents. I know I read this thread but I can not find it at all. If someone knows which one this is that would be great. Thanks.

EDIT: found the thread!! http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/...21/index2.html
