I won't sign the title off until Friday, but I'll be removing all the stuff I've put on it tomorrow. That front bracket was crushed along with unibody damage behind the fascia and the pinch weld right at the fender was bent in somewhat too.

I'm fine with the outcome, though. Getting a better WJ and some extra cash for it.

I did the same when they totaled my limited, it was the best day of my life, I kept my system roof rack brush guard, best part when they paid me off I was able to find a better one and was able to buy my lift, tires and kc lights on it :-D love full coverage

Did you mask off everything but the handle or did you just leave a square around the handle? I need to do mine along with my grill and rear hatch plastics.

Itll hold up to pressure washing if its applied correctly. It may or may not hold up to being grabbed and pulled on the door handle though. I guess we'll find out

Did the rear wheel bearings, new parking brake and new discs + pads. Everything went well except for my calipers decided to give in. So needed new calipers. Now everything is back together and looking perfect!

Changed the plugs @ 205k. They were worn to about 0.10! #6 was a little annoying, #8 was a PITA!

It might be my imagination, but I swear my subs (pair of 10's driven by a 400w amp) are hitting much harder since doing the plugs.

I suppose that is possible since the plugs would have been pulling the maximum amount of power from the coils to fire..

Today I put on the spacer brackets I made to complement my lift. HUGE PITA.

Time for work!

The new calipers have some sort of coating, but the anchors need some 2 component caliper paint

Thinking of silver, that would look clean and stock.
