Yeah, I really like the brushguard. I got a good deal on it and a steal for the Warn lights. What prep work was needed for painting the rims?

I used plasti-dip, just washed them and let them dry was all the prep I needed.

And if you dont like it. You peel it off

Maybe I'll get going on painting the rims dinner than I thought. Seeing your WJ makes me want to paint my fuel door, too.

Painting rims is wash degrease and clean/take off any peeling clear coat. Then just paint. Can as well touch them up whenever you need.

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!

I'll be looking into painting my rims in a couple weeks. I'm closing on a house tomorrow so I'll be busy for the next couple weekends.

I just used krylon fusion satin black. Scotch brite pad, soap and water, rinse, dry, tape it off and spray it. For best results I would recommend painting in direct sunlight. I run it through trees and it will scratch off and just touch it up and looks fine for all intents and purposes.
