It was spray can black. I bought it at Home Depot as they were cheaper than Ace Hardware and Lowes in my area at $4.59/can. I picked up 5 cans and used three, including my oops in a couple of spots that required touch up and a full repaint of one center cap.

Speaking of.....finished my center caps as well.

I got mine through my local jeep place. They've worked well with my retrofit. Have had them for over a year now.

Froze the water pump bearings and disintegrated the belt this morning. Got raped by a local shop to the tune of $468 for the replacement.
Dremeled out the driver's side dash speaker mount so I could fit a 3 1/2" speaker in its place and Dremeled a notch in the top dash cap for my CB antenna cable while I was waiting for the tow.
Tomorrow it's mount the tweeters and CB, change plugs, change front/rear diff seals and fluid, change oil.

New teraflex 4.5" springs w bilsteins and IRO long arms. My forearms hurt. Recommend any kind of impact gun for disassembling and reassembling.

Yeah, I had only planned on getting the compressor, but when I saw the floor jack I couldn't resist! It took quite a bit of shoving and squishing to get it to fit in the trunk with all of our stuff!

Got my WJ back from getting a new transmission installed for $2600. Im happy and sad at the same time. It has a 3 year/100,000 mile warranty. Its nice to have overdrive again and smooth/quick shifts....
