niace Davy! looks great bro...you happy? post up a pic from further back if you have one

Thanks Omar...and nice new sig pic w/ the IROC's!!!

I think you should do this Jeremy...IMO it will look great with the chrome you already have (unless you will be murdering your bad boy)!

Re: How To: Overland Bumper Insert & Lower Valance Mesh on 08 WK

I don't think I'll murder it out. I've thought about getting a black SRT grill though, but I still like the chrome accents from the side view of the Jeep. As for now though the mods are on hold as I'm house/condo shopping

Davy, Do you have any after pics of the lower black plastic piece u painted black/clear coated? I was thinking about painting mine... but wasnt sure about how it would come out....compared to one that comes painted....
Might just look for a factory painted Overland one for sale... Anyone have one to sell??
Prefer black... but can repaint if a different color...

Re: How To: Overland Bumper Insert & Lower Valance Mesh on 08 WK

^^ I think Davy was talking about the mesh - he sprayed and cleared the mesh...you should for sure buy a painted lower-valance off of a used/totaled Limited/Overland, it would save you some $$ for sure
