What i've been up to recently...
Even with being really busy with school and work, I still managed to get some new things done..
-Removed Brush Guard (installing factory tow hooks)
-Debadged and semi destickered
-2" Daystar lift
-Painted the door handles, mirrors and rear liftgate trim piece to match
-Painted the plastic cladding black (doing the rockers in truck bed coating soon..)
-replaced tie rods and got an alignment (AMAZING difference)
-K&N drop in filter
-Probably more things done but thats all i cant think of off the top of my head.. Snapped some pictures last night, not the best but i was due lol

On the "to do" list
-just bought factory tow hooks today
-paint rockers
-get an alarm
-remove the 20% tint and get 5% tint
-possibly a new head unit
-fix the rust spot :(
-new wheels and tires when i come across a good deal off craigslist
-who knows, maybe more if i get bored :lol:

Thanks Tony, it turned out awesome! I wanted to paint it body color, but it was easier just to paint it black..
It goes good with everything else black I have done..
Definetly no where near as clean your wj!

Really nice, I'm just not a fan of the replacment decals, but to each his own..

How easy was it to paint your mirrors, and door handles to match?

2" looks really nice.. makes me :drool: for my future one :-)
You got any pictures of your auxillary lights mounting?

Re: What i've been up to recently...
Thanks everyone!
I like to be different and stand out from the crowd lol to each their own i say, if u like thats all that matters.
-it wasnt too bad painting the mirrors and door handles, like painting anything its all in the prep work...
-as for the 2" inch lift, thats how 4wd WJ's should have come from the factory as they all lowered when i see them driving now...
I wish i had gone with a 3 or 4 inch kit now!! so keep that in mind lol
-as for the mounting of the lights, ill get pictures to you next week when i take off the bumper to install my tow hooks..
thanks again guys

The mirrors look great! Did you sand them down and paint them?

99PlatinumWJ 10-11-2011 10:17 PM

Re: What i've been up to recently...
Mirrors-I scuffed them up a bit but not smooth, cleaned them really good, sprayed on duplicolor adhesion promoter, followed by primer for plastics, then duplicolor perfect match, and finally a few coats of clear coat. Door handles were the same process...
For a spray paint, everything has come out great! I couldn't take all the fading plastic so I just painted and cleared it all lol problem solved!
Its all in the prep work and taking your time.
I'm going to borrow a camera and take better pictures soon
