Time to get current!

I was not satisfied with the location of my auxiliary switches so I decided to do something about it. You can find the build thread HERE.

Before:




After:




I Ended up not enjoying the brightness of the LEDs in the switches so I got some Night Shade and hit the back side of the switches with a couple of coats.

I taped up the bottom window so it would be good and bright for when the switch is engaged. I also taped the face of the switches in case of over spray.




Before:




After:




Now they don't disrupt my kids in the back seat at night while trying to sleep

Next up was to bedline my rockers in preparation for my new rails! I masked off the the rockers and gave them a quick sand.







Then I hit them up with the same stuff I used on the rear step.






And there you have it, bedlined rockers!

Now that we are finally up to date, here is the start of a little something I have been planning for a while now

Before this past SEMA show and Jeep's ORT logo they came up with, I had one of my own planned. It was simple. Take the SRT logo and swap in an O in place of the S! I have planned to change the stitching on my future SRT seats to say ORT, but until then I was trying to figure out what else I could do with the idea. I remembered that the SRT8 wheels had SRT etched into them:





So I did something similar to mine









I plan to get a couple of custom badges made similar to the SRT8 badge for the rear and maybe one in the grill.

That looks awesome Nate! I was looking to do the same exact thing on mg Moabs after Greg showed me the stickers. Great minds!!

Nathan, that is awesome man. I really like that Idea. I think I'd like to do something similar with the ORT, but probably won't be on the wheels - My wheels need to be redone. I'm seeing if I can hold out a little longer before I buy new wheels.

All Gear, No Skill.

Indeed! When Greg put those R/T stickers on his I told him to do ORT instead which he thought was a great idea. But I didn't like that he left the / in there ( just wasn't what I was envisioning, personal preference). I asked him to have his friend mock me up some in the SRT logo but make it ORT instead. I love the way they turned out! You should do it to your Moabs too. They need to be 4" long.

when you taped off the strip for the bedliner when did you pull the tape off? Does it look at all like it will peel on that edge? I ask because if I do end up lining the 3" lip of my fenders I'm trying to figure out first how to prep the lip without sanding/scuffing up beyond the lip and second when to pull the tape and third whether it would eventually be likely to peel on that edge.

What I did was tape everything off, then I sanded. That way I couldn't sand above or on anything I didn't want sanded. Then I wiped everything down with soap and water. After that I wiped it down again but with isopropyl alcohol. Then I sprayed two coats of bedliner. Right after spraying the second coat I peeled the tape off. If you wait too long it will be gummy or crackly. You want to pull it off while it is still wet and will create a smooth line. I haven't had it on very long, about two weeks, so I can't really comment on longevity. But my kids slide up and down the rocker every time they get in and out, so far it has held up great.

Copy. That's pretty much how I was figuring on goin at this if and when I do it. Didn't know if you had any other "tricks" up your sleeve regarding it. Thanks for the help.

So I was browsing S4xc today and came across this:
http://www.saguaro4xcomponents.com/i...products_id=63

They must have just added this to their arsenal but I was wondering:
do you get royalty kickbacks for this?
