Lift Lip type materials??

My CJ has a 3" body lift and while I'm decently satisfied with the job the PO did installing it I'm not satisfied being able to see right through the underside of the jeep. Has anyone used a material to create a custom fit set of fillers similar to the lift lips concept except full length?

Or should I just live with the gap given that you can see alot of the trans/transfer case very easily?

Thoughts?

I noticed you've already got an extended inner fender in front. It really doesn't look too bad from this angle, IMHO. You may end up spending a lot of effort covering it up only to draw even more attention to it when other Jeepers get to peepin' under your rig, 'cause you know they will.

You may be right Clint. The front isn't horrible but there is obviously a good size gap under the body of the Jeep that is my main issue. Might just leave it as it does provide additional space for visual inspection.

Totally off topic, but where did you get your windscreen KSToyz?

Slacker,

It came with the Jeep when I purchased it so I'm not sure...sorry I couldn't help.
