Thanks! Since it's something new, I can't keep my eyes off them! I thought about painting the end caps black as well, but saw a Googled image of one that mine is modeled after. I figured, the rails had a couple of holes, and I'd never find the matching grey paint, so flat black would look pretty cool with the grey ends. I haven't seen the JK (Wrangler Unlimited X) steel rims in black Plasti-dip paint yet, so that's my next move.
She's subtle right now, but I eventually would like to lift it 2 or 3 inches and add some larger and wider tires. Thanks again!

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Picture of the sensors, in more light so that you can actually see them. The sensors are circled in white:



Jeep is lookin good. Need to personalize it more though. Thinking maybe a plastidip on the grill:



Am I the only one who thinks the WJ would look really good with a larger back spoiler type thing, like the one on the '14 WK2?

What do the sensors do? They're proximity sensors?

Plastidip the front. It will change the whole look.

I don't think it would look terrible and I think it would look good but I've never seen one done.

Like plastidip the whole black molded part of the bumper? Hmm...that'd be interesting. To start, at least, I think I'll start with the grill.

And yes, they are proximity, or back up, sensors. Very convenient, relatively easy to install, work excellently, and a great value at $35. Oh man, I sound like a businessman now

Very very very well. It has a graduated beeping, That eventually reaches a solid tone once within like a foot of the object. Does a pretty good job of sensing objects that are not directly behind my car too.

And guys. Chris Henry, from Jeeps Unlimited. His WJ looks outstanding. Especially those wheels. 18X9 Moda R6's. So sexy on the WJ.

Too bad I can't find them anywhere for sale. Anyone know of some nice looking, under $250 per wheel 18X9 wheels for the WJ?

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

hopefully putting on the cheap muffler and tailpipe I have to quiet the thing down.
Previous owner put on a glasspack, must have hit it with a garden hose too, thing is way too loud!!!.

Ugh...not good! That shiz is just as bad as bird crap on your clear coat...especially when it's mostly alcohol and acid

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

It's pretty disgusting. I dropped them all off and drove straight to a 24-hour car wash, washed the side of the car and vacuumed the interior and cleaned it as best as I could at 3 am.
