you can take the paint code to a paint shop and have them color match it...

Are the scoops functional (don't appear to be)? if not, I would maybe consider ones that are...otherwise IMHO, loose them.

Noticed I have a broken exhaust manifold bolt. YAY! Got the gaskets and I will need to get the bolts from somewhere. Not sure yet. If anyone knows where to get exhaust manifold bolts I need to know.

I got mine from the dealership. They were only $0.45 each.

The paint is really good match.
That is the stuff I used but what I'm saying is that the glossy finish on the plastic doesn't match the glossy finish on the jeep therefore it is very noticeable.

The install is just taping them on with 3M auto tape. If you wanted to get real scoops they are around 800 dollars. These are around 50 then about 30 for the painting supplies. They are made by Westin.

Yeah, the color looks way off. Are you sure you got the right color for your Jeep? Mine was PW1, Stone White. I had to look at 3 parts stores before I found the right paint code.

I got mine from Kolak but I also bought a new manifold to replace as well, so the bolts weren't much to add to the order. I went with a CROWN manifold though, as I read somewhere that the OEM ones have a tendency to warp/be warped once the bolts go. and I also read that the Crown was made better than the OEM, but I don't know how true that may be...but knock on wood, I haven't had any issues.

just make sure your engine is nice and warm before reving it. I had a bolt or two snap after starting it... accidently smashed the gas pedal trying to get out...heard it pop as clear as anything!
