It would really tie together a subtle silver/brushed aluminum look some Fawkes Fab front D-ring recovery mounts with silver/plain un-painted D-rings would also tie in with it and look awesome, as well as serve an important purpose. And finally, if you didn't get Bilstein 5100's, then when your current shocks fail or you want to upgrade down the road, get those Bilsteins and they would tie in with the brushed/silver theme too! Hah sorry to get carried away all of the things I would do to your Jeep.

Can't wait to get my brand new 04 Laredo headlights in the mail so I can finally get rid of my chrome Limited headlights and complete my entire chrome delete (as well as tie together the whole black and white theme that much more. Maybe I'll throw a little silver contrast in there too since I already have the silver JK wheels and silver/brushed Bilstein shocks, and could do a silver rear shackle and silver front Fawkes shackles. Then maybe an 04 grill with silver center and black surround... getting carried away again...
Let's see a pic of your ride

Link didn't work for me. I'm real interested of how it looks.

Kind of a weird and almost sad feeling lol. It's weird when you're 5 years older than an 18 year-old when I pretty much still feel 18 myself. But I wasn't about to accidentally ask some 16 year old girl for her number ... in front of her dad lol

BOT: here's one more picture so you guys can see from the rear what 1.5" wheel spacers look like with JK wheels (and the rest of the specs of my WJ, which are in my signature). Love the stance they gave it. Sorry for the iPhoto effects and sorry if you guys are sick of seeing pics of my WJ!








Clean looking rig man...... Looks strangely familiar.

Pics to come in the morning.

I did this for my rims when i painted them. I was doing it between getting new tires and i had to prep and paint them in one night...the sanding was awful.... i had previously spray painted them, so removing that paint took about 8 hrs total and then about an hour to spray them down with some high quality primer/paint/clear. The look is well well worth it.

Like to see some pics when your done!

That's as far as I got so far on both sides. I like it though!

I'll get another from straight on for you. But it's duplicolor spray on bed liner. I scuffed the surface, did a light coat of primer, and then two coats of the bedliner. Be sure to go easy with the bedliner. It started to drip the first time I did it and I had to wipe most of it off. I might do a third coat if warranted. We'll see how it holds up.

Meters are cheap. Better off buying one. You will use it more than once.

I have this one permanently in line, and sitting on my steering column. It fits nicely between the gauges cluster and the flasher/hazzard button. I can monitor swr and power at a glance. It also has an antenna matcher. I know its not high quality but it does the job of letting me know when something goes haywire.

Looks real good. I might have to look into doing that.
