Mine has color matched handles as well. Also, Do you have a picture of the wheels currently? Maybe you could save them?

Yea that's what I think I'm going to do. I have the Mothers Powerball or whatever it's called to polish wheels. I need look into sealing them or something too. Or just get a really cheap set of wheels for the winter from now on. No pics right now but I'll post one later.

Thanks for all the ideas with this. Anyone want a set of matte black ORT fender stripes?

After a quick search of the Googles, it looks like there are several different wheel waxes and sealants that you could get to prevent corrosion on them in the future

Yea I saw some of those today, thanks a lot!

Hopefully I can restore them. I'm pretty good with that kind of stuff so I'm sure it'll be fine. I googled the brushed look too and that seems pretty simple to do. Still undecided, just kinda sick of the chrome on it.

Thinking about the plasti-dip smoke on the trim and color marching the door handles if they aren't already.

So now it's either black, a brushed silver, smoke or god knows what else I'll come up with by the time it's warm enough to do something.

In other news, i got all my front recovery gear in and ordering the 4XGUARD rear sliders and belly skid this week.

Did the bumper trim today

Taped it off and traced the lines I wanted.
Then cut the one side.
After I made my first cut, i reinforced the tape to mirror the other side so they were the same

I also went over everything w a sanding dremel tip to clean up the edges and painted my washer fluid reservoir.

Sorry that last pic if dark, I'll get a better one tomorrow if anyone is interested.

Over the last couple of days got my diff's and transfer case along with trans fluid and fluid done. Added RRO UCA's and they make a HUGE difference. I'll add some pics once I have a chance.

Front end just feels a lot more stable. Also, the angle that the arm sits with the RRO looks "natural" if that makes any sense. The stock UCA and ball joint looked really stressed

Took some measurements of the rear cargo area to figure out what I want to do with that space. I want to build a box of some sort to organize everything, probably a less involved version of what Valpacer has done. I took out the plastic sub floor and got 36.5in from the deepest point of the plastic scuff plate and 43.5in wide. I don't want anything sitting too high because I want to be able to have my golf clubs and anything else I need space for. The box will just be for tools, off-road gear (jacks, tow straps, tools, etc..)
