Thanks, yea will try the BBQ paint or something really industrial, maybe a chemical process is needed!

Re: Need buyer advice!

I did some research for you you can either have them powder coated black.. The second one I know you can't do because you live in Dubai but autozone over here sells high temp cans on spray paint and a guy used it on his exhaust and said it help up wonderfully.

Thanks very much for the info, really appreciate it! Will check powder coating options here. We do get quite a few US products here in Dubai, also I have an Aramex Shop&Ship account to bring things over Sometimes its the simple things you can't find here, but the 'over the top' stuff is all over the place!

Once again, thanks for the info!

Haha! A long trip for any hovercraft, but most welcome regardless! Will do , though going on holiday this week with the misses so no jeep work until mid July

Next mods are BT catch can, adjustable track bar, JBA UCAs and high beam HIDs ..

Re: Need buyer advice!

Well I have some bad news the seller backed out and decided he wanted to keep it.. Figures with my luck but later today I'm going to look at a 2005 limited its red with chrome looks sharp! It has 112,000 on it and its a 4.7L oh and it's fully loaded . First mod if I get it is plasti dipping the window cross sections they are red and ugly!

Re: Need buyer advice!

Definitely, tinted is the way forward . I tinted mine but kept the stock light clusters and put in V-LEDs in them ...
