That's a good deal on those windows. I thought you were going to write an essay on the ups and downs of plastic windows or something. My mistake. Like all Jeeps, your rig gets better lookin with every mod.

chug a lug, chug a lug...

mod 23 - MOPAR FUEL FILLER DOOR (SATIN BLACK) - found this gem on ebay. it's such a horrible place; stay away from that web site. ...seriously people; i like it when i only bid against one person.

this goes for $108 plus shipping/tax on mopar-accessoriesDOTcom


ebay ($66...w/shipping)




...it took about 20 minutes to install.

take out old one



put in the new one...the grommet took the longest. it was a booger to get back in place.





and it's done

...ugly


BUT this is what i plan to do:

before:


after cutting and grinding and a little touch up paint:




...so i'm gonna make my own "mopar" style ones for 1/3 of the price.

mod 24 - RUGGED RIDGE EURO STYLE REAR LAMP GUARDS - well, i know i told you what i told you above, but i got these things in and they're constructed nothing like the pictures look like online. don't get me wrong, they're sturdy, but i feel w/ the way they were molded, i'd be sacrificing structural integrity and nulling out any positive gains they would have served.

...so i left them as-is. there's nothing wrong with that, right N2Rocks?


discount wholesaler ($45 w/ tax...and a drive to pearland)



the passenger-side one went on fine, but the drivers side looked like i was going to run into space issues w/ the ultramount and spring



...nah, it's all good



i'm sure their ugliness will grow on me. i thumped them a couple of times real good with a wood stick. seemed to do what i wanted them to.



now...can a jeeper have a drum roll?

dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd dddd



mod 25 - RANCHO ROCK GEAR FRONT BUMPER (STUBBY) - i've been on the hunt, and this one caught my eye. stubby, sturdy, and moderately priced.

i paid $260 w/ tax for it from the same discount wholesaler as the euro guards... ...now you understand why i'd drive out to pearland


before




during

i'm glad i'm rid of these damn things



it gets dirty in that lip of the bumper...oh, and skid row skid plate no worky w/ this bumper





...but it's all good, the hella bolts fit through the winch plate holes
