I didn't even think of that. Do you just drill a hole and tap it with the right size of threads? Food for future thought.

Mag-Hytec makes an aftermarket oversized transmission pan for the 545RFE that includes a magnetic drain plug, but I wasn't sure it would be worthwhile to drop $300 on a transmission pan on a stock Overland. I was also concerned about the ground clearance for the larger pan on a non-lifted Jeep.

Finished blacking out the wood grain. Got a $10 radio bezel (black) at the local pull your part. Plasti Dip'd the lower console pieces, trim on dash and all four doors...

I feel your pain!

Ordered me some new head lights today and took 5 minutes to put them in. Just the stock limited replacements, but I like them better than any aftermarkets i've seen. Waiting on all my led bulbs to come in now.

That's SHARP! If I didn't have the brushed aluminum I would definitely consider doing this.

I lucked out and got the burl wood instead of that wood grain in mine. Do prefer the brushed metal, but would have doen the same if mine were the same trim. Looks great!

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!
