After I gave it a good washing, I just went over everything with sandpaper. A wire brush would also be good for certain things. After that, I rinsed everything again and degreased the parts w/rubbing alcohol (i have it in a spray bottle). Then I just spray bombed everything with semi-gloss engine enamel.

It took about a day but I also did the front, installed a 4XGuard Front Guard, and changed my oil

Re: Poor man's WK mod thread

How about the expanded metal grill mod. $20 and some paint. I used .75" but most that I've seen used .5". Looks alot better then the fins IMO.

Lowes, Home Depot, Hardware store. You may even be able to find it at a pet store. They sell 2'x2' sheets to protect screen doors from pets.

Good one. I used the smaller mesh made for gutters on my WJ and it was a big improvement over stock. I like that larger mesh more though, it looks more like the SRT8/Overland grill

Here's the smaller mesh:

Re: Poor man's WK mod thread

i feel like those mesh grills look really good new but after a while they would get dirty real easy and be hard to clean... thoughts?
