Look nice! You should paint the part of your pumper that is between the lower grill and the skid.

I finally gave her a bath today! After it was all clean I noticed how nasty my tail pipe has gotten. I realized I hadn't touched it in probably a year, so it had a years worth of dirt and mud baked onto it. NOT NO MORE...!!!



I only did the tip where it pokes through the bumper. Didn't see the point in doing all of it since you wouldn't ever see it.

I also cleaned up the bottom since it has spent some time snuggling up to some rocks!

I also added spring retainers (home fabricated) on the rear. Top and bottom. with all of the fabrication, it took me 9 hours today. the wife isnt happy with me

You could always change them to a set of LED flashbacks!

Driving:



Blinking:



Off:



I like them because I now have round headlights instead of half white half amber headlights, but they still blink amber like they should!

Huh i never saw those before.. I like them! Where did you find them at? Link?
One question, did you have to wire in the led resistors for them to flash right?

Yes I wired in a 6ohm resistor to the blinker wire (green wire). There are a few places where you can get them. I got mine off eBay.

This is my first attempt to post a pic, so bear with me. I washed my WK the other day. Also, my Wrangler Silentarmors are only a couple weeks old.

If I got those... I'd probably put my stock headlights back in. (which I've been wanting to do for some time)

I'm Back...

I changed my oil today. Used the Qwik-Valve for the first time since installing it. God is that thing from heaven. No oily mess for fumbling a plug.
I also made a tape line for a possible bumper chop..

Note Ignore the tape line going around the driver side. It needs adjustin'
