Rustoleum is ideal so you can touch up anytime anywhere, but why gloss? Either way, I would toss a nice coat of primer on there as well even though it technically isn't as necessary with the Rustoleum.

I was passing through on my way home from Idaho. I stopped to make a phone call and then hopped on here for a couple minutes. Back to work today.

Gloss I can clean up. **** is always going to be covered with grease and oil and dust.

Gloss should wipe clean flat will get all screwed up and look dirty even when clean, etc.

Isn't POR15 gloss?

I had a buddy that bought a trailer that had been in the sun for years and was all faded black and paint cracked and peeling. He planned on chipping all the loose paint off but gave up after one side. He painted the whole thing with black rustoleum and it came out pretty good. It's been 2 yrs and it still shows no signs of peeling.

Haha yea that's what will happen, I'm just bored. So far the hardest part I'm foreseeing with the swap is the AC. I have to have my cold air!! It looks like we will have to notch the frame on the passenger side, but that's not a biggie. And it's a good thing I don't have a pass. side upper link mount or AC wouldn't be an option. AND I'm still deciding 3.8 or 4.3 on the Atlas.

I've got a black toyota that honestly would make much better use of the engine and transmission. It'll cost you less too, I'll do the install myself. Maybe skip the atlas and buy me a 35 spline spool and axles though too while you're spending the cash. I'll give you rides in it!!! Maybe even let you drive it...

Well, I like to drive my Jeep on the street a lot too. Unfortunately, I have tapped out what my drivetrain is capable of for overall drivability. Example...as soon as I get just past the gas station at Blue Diamond and 159(heading to Lovell Rd) I have to drop into 3rd gear, pedal down, RPM's around 4K just to maintain 50-55mph...SUCK, I drove my Jeep to CA a while back. Baker pass, I'm lucky if the 18wheelers aren't passing me in the truck lane.

4.0, 4spd auto, 5.38 gears...not much more I can do. A supercharger is a waste of $$, cost about 6K to do right, all your power is at high RPM's, and that's all if the stock engine bottom end lasts. So anything less than open throttle and the SC does nothing for you.

So my options were go to 35" tires for the street or put a 400hp engine in, I chose the latter

Yeah it definitely seems to make sense with what do with it. Did you ever see the willys that belonged to the guy who bought the CJ from you?

He's got an LS from an escalade or yukon under the hood and said with his exhaust and tune it has ungodly amounts of power, but he gets over 20mpg in that thing and it just cruises all day at 70 with zero issues.
