Thanks Bud! Here's a pic:



First I bought the one on the left from Lowes, but I didn't like it very much. It wasn't gritty enough for me. Then I bought the one on the right from PepBoys which is the one I ended up using. It was a better product.

Thanks Guys! It is an awesome and cheap upgrade! For $10 it made a world of difference and I still have tons left. I haven't compared it yet to the 4xGuard sliders, but I am hoping it is a good match. The stuff I have been using is not cutting it! I am going to coat the hitch shroud next.

I may have to look at doing that. It'd probably make a good (easy) side project when I install my amber flashers behind the rear glass.

Also... all your cargo space. I am just about bursting at the seams...

(the answer to both questions you're probably asking is "Search and Rescue)

That's cool man! I did search and rescue for a short time back home with my XJ. Where are you mounting your flashers?

I think I am going to mount the ones on the front behind the front grill and the rear will be behind the glass mounted to the tips (inside) of the lift gate.

If I go so far as to do the sides I'll probably put them behind the read cargo area windows.

Thanks dude! I'm on the fence about using plasti-dip again, it looks good till I go wheeling then I can never get it to look clean
