Thanks. No, I didn't even think about doing a write-up for this. I just took the tail lights off, created a pattern to trace onto the tub, cut it out with a dremmel, trimmed the black knobs off of the back of the light (where the lens screws went), and plugged them back in and screwed them to the tub. Took me maybe a couple of hours or so all together...

If one was to do this, there are a couple of things to watch out for, like making sure that you go low enough when cutting the tub to miss the top of the wheel well, etc.

2 weeks ago I was rear ended by a woman who sneezed. The endcap was ruined and the factory bumper was slightly creased. While I was fixing the bumber I decided to cut it to match the front bumber. I've always wanted to remove the endcaps but I wasn't completely thrilled with the squared bumper. I painted everything satin black and it looks like it came that way from the factory.

Looks good. I'm not a big fan of the square rear bumper either but it still beats having the factory end caps.

Found myself stuck in traffic about a block away from a wreck and figured..."screw it!" and pulled a u turn over the median and got home another way. Not actual "wheeling" by any means but it sure was nice having a vehicle that didn't even notice the median. Man, I love my jeep!

Thanks. Hadn't seen it here on JF. A guy in my local club has done it, and I liked the way it turned out, so I went for it!

I installed the parts outlined in the TSB for that annoying Transfer Case rattle! A 10 minute repair, and the rattle is GONE!

Also got my new tinted windows on the soft top--looks great! But---not as good as with the top down!

I let my wife drive my Jeep for the first time last night. It was a gorgeous night, sunny and warm so the top was down. I was nervous at first, but she drove it pretty good (didn't even stall it once).

haha. My wife insisted on me getting an automatic so she could drive it. She like it until I blew the transmission by filling it w/ water. Now she barely wants to drive it, well she would like to drive a sledgehammer into the hood.
