Put up some pictures when you get it Rhino coated on the outside. I was thinking about doing that to my jeep. How much is it supposed to cost you?

Thanks, I'm very happy with the lift quality for the price. For now I put some wore out 285/70R17 Firestone Destination M/T tires on while I try to decide on tires. leaning toward KM2's but just can't seem to pull the trigger.

I'm getting the Solarmax done in fire- engine red. The difference besides thickness & softness in the material is that the top protective coat is mixed in with it. (if you think of Behr paint from Home Depot) similar method- the shine does not fade away. The difference in the rhinocoat is that Solarmax has more impact absorption and sometimes with rhinocoating it chips/peels off and Solarmax has a lifetime guarantee to the owner.

But the important part is getting someone to do it correctly and taking the time to do it. this is more of an investment for me bc I want give this jeep to my daughter when is old enough- then build a kit from the ground up.

The company quoted me $3500.00
For: Exterior, under-rail, frame & nerf bars

They will be using 2 different kinds Solarmax strength for the top & under.

Like I said "an investment" but whoever said quality paint jobs were cheap? Lol

I know there are different opinions from both sides of the fences- I think it just comes down to u & pocketbook.

Do NOT do that. Grind out the old nutserts and replace them. You will end up damaging the frame over time. You can find a couple of threads on here about the nutserts and what size you need. It's not hard nor expensive to do it right.
Also you don't need to drop the skid although it makes it easier. Either using a ratchet with an extension and angle thingie on it (for the life of me cannot remember the name right now) or a ratcheting wrench will work. Take the front end off and then put your head up against the rear tire and you can get at the rear end.

Regardless will get driveshaft fixed or replace it.

There is nothing better than driving a top less / door less Jeep.
