  1. Customizing Wrangler DIY

    I recently purchased a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport and wanted to do some customizations ( door handle, headlight trim, brake light trim , grill inserts etc) but can’t find the color I want.

  2. Painted Brush Guard?

    I recently saw that someone paint matched their brush guard and loved the way it looks. Naturally, I didn’t mark it and can’t remember where I saw it. Anyone have any feedback/advice on best way to do this without spending an arm and a leg? I’ve attached a screenshot of where I want to paint in...
  3. Recently purchased mopar beadlocks... interested in paint matching

    I recently purchased mopar beadlocks and the guy I purchased them from bought them brand new and never mounted them. He did however get them paint matched to the color of his Jeep. Like I said these bead locks are brand new, I’m interested in paint matching them the color of my jeep. I have...

    Hey so I have a 2021 JLUR and I’m looking at getting 315/70/17 K02s for sure, but as far as the rim choice, I want to go with fuel covert rims with 4.5” BS and -12 offset, I’m just concerned with the amount of stuff the tires are gonna throw up with that setup. can anyone shed some light from...
  5. Custom paint or vinyl wrap opinion and costs?

    Anyone have experience getting an aftermarket custom paint or vinyl wrap? Not looking to do any crazy graphics, just looking to get a color I like better than what Jeep offers. Was wondering which is better and what I should expect for costs, Wrangler Unlimited. Thanks!
  6. Vinyl wrap/plasti dip inside of door

    With Punk'n discontinued it's getting harder and harder to find a Punk'n Wrangler or Gladiator on a dealer lot that's configured how I want. I've been thinking about just vinyl wrapping the Jeep I want to be Punk'n, however I'm having a hard time finding an exact, or close enough, match from a...
  7. Ordering Options - Exterior Paint and Roof

    What do you guys think between Punk'n Rubicon or Sting Gray? Also, any thoughts on Hardtop vs One Touch vs Soft top? It's been hard to find the perfect match for the built I did on Jeep website and with the ordering backlogged, gotta go with what's available. Seems like Soft top can be...
  8. Chipped Paint on hood. Best fix? How often to wax/detail vehicle?

    Hey all. Have what is probably a very novice/simple question, but relatively new to the Jeep family and wasn’t sure the best way to handle an area of chipped paint to my 2018 JL Wrangler. Not sure exactly what happened, but assume that a pebble or something chipped a small piece of paint off...
  9. Rotopax dented my door

    Hi EVERYBODY! I went on 1,000 mile overlanding trip and unbeknownst to me my rotopax fuel tank was rubbing up against the paint on my back door. All those miles it rubbed through the paint down to the metal. I'm super bummed and disappointed in myself for not noticing. Be careful with those...
  10. Powder coating vs Painting

    Looking for anyone with experience in powder coating the JLU Rubicon wheels? I would like to powder coat them red/black but have heard it could distort them. Is this true? Is it safer to just have them painted? Does anyone know the benefits to powder coating vs painting? I fully understand...
  11. At paint stage

    I called my Sales department this morning and found out that my Wrangler is at the paint stage. YEAH MAN! What is the next step? Anybody? The jeep seems to be moving right along, lucky for me. Also, I see on the forum that getting two fobs is a problem with some dealerships. I will get 2 so I...
  12. Need tips for a quality DIY grill paint job

    I'm thinking about doing a rattle can paint job on my grill and was hoping to get some tips and advice from those with experience in this area. I __might__ do a gradient as shown in my Photoshop mock-up below. I don't know. I'm just playing with ideas at this point. I'd rather not farm this out...

    Hi, I had a little incident while removing the top of my JL Unlimited Sport S and scratched the paint in some areas. Is it possible to order some Stingray color pen or something for touch up? Thanks.
  14. Unpainted hinges and fading hard top

    I was out cleaning my Jeep today and noticed a few things. The first was black residue coming off of the hard top. I had noticed this previously and didn't think anything of it, thinking it would go away after the first wash, but now that it's 5 months later and keeps happening I'm wondering if...

  16. Door Sill Paint Wearing Off

    It appears as though the metal of the door is touching the metal of the door sill causing some paint to wear off. I know this a very small area, but for a $50K car, I expect that these things should not happen. Has anyone else seen this? Any ideas of how to fix other than continuous touch up...

    Here is the finished look of my JLU The front grill is easy and painless, getting to the fog light trim is also easy just takes some time. Lots of screws and pressure clips. You just have to take off the bumper cover. Back of the bumper All screws and clips are out. Also the air dam...

    Playing with the idea of eventually wrapping or painting my Silver Billet JL some time down the road, and was wondering if anyone has local recommendations for either service. (plus if you have a general idea of pricing as well!)
  20. Opinion of these Beginner Detailing Kits?

    So, my '07 JKU was my first jeep/vehicle and I beat the hell out of it. Never worried too much about it because "it's a jeep, that's what it's for.." When I washed it, I just took it to the gas station. I wiped down the interior with those Armor All wipes. Well, now that I am an adult and...
