If it rubs off the paint so easy, what is to stop it from rubbing off the trim?

Thanks man, wont be pretty for much longer. One question though, i'm fixing to order a 4x front skid when they become available again (hopefully ASAP), and im just trying to figure out if it will cover those lines running across the front of that crossmember and if it will conflict with the mopar suspension skid, any input would be appreciated, thanks!

They both fit without interfering with each other. No modification needed! I am not sure what lines you are referring to, but maybe a couple pix will help.

Just ordered some hella 700s for behind the grille and micro fogs to go beside the front hooks. 3 strips of leds for under hood work lights a fuse block, and got my contura switches in. Gonna wire them up a bit tomorrow, and will start to see where I want to mount the leds exactly.

Also tomorrow I will probably source together the stuff to do the DIY grille mod. Gota work from 7-7 tomorrow and through the weekend.

Let me know how those lights behind the grille turn out. I still have my black magical from 4 months ago that need to be mounted there.

Well I got bored and was out working on the Jeep. Saw this on JG and decided to give it a shot. Cheap version of the Stillen covers lol.



Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic. Camera battery is dead.

Did you sand your wheels down first so it would "adhere" better or does plastidip do OK without any sanding? How sturdy is plastidip in comparison to a couple coats of flat black with clear coat spray paint? Running a finger nail into plastidip cause it to come right off?

No sanding necessary. PD will adhere to it just fine. I've had mine on for about 4 months and there isn't any problems with it. Holds up pretty well. Best part about PD over paint is if it doesn't turn out how you like it, let it dry and you can peel it off. Weird to say you can peel it off, but yet still say its durable... but it is lol.
