400 grit sand, clean thoroughly with denatured alcohol, mask with blue painters tape, 2-3 light coats of adhesion promoter (primer), 4 or 5 light coats of color, 3-4 coats of gloss clear.

Yes, Infinity Reference speakers.
Can I ask: did you polyfill? I'm loving the speakers but it feels kind of "hollow" on certain songs. Like there's no depth to certain ranges. I've heard polyfill can fix that but I'd like someone else's opinion on 1. whether that's true (don't want to get my expectations up) and 2. how exactly how to do it. Are you just removing the speaker and stuffing the cavity beneath where the speaker sits? Just a bit hazy on the details and don't want to mess anything up.

No poly fill for me. Not really an audio expert, just a novice. I think the References are a modest improvement over stock, not an earth shattering improvement. But worth the small cost.

Seems like trim rings/beadlocks are popular. Something I'll need to consider, thanks! Looks great on your rig.

For a little pop of color on the bumper, went with Artec front bumper, sway bar skid and bumper skid plate. Since the wheels were gold, the bumper skid was matched to the wheels. Red D-Rings were matched to the red of the "Rubicon" sticker and the diff cover were matched to the red as well.

FWIW, I agree, the burnt orange color is truly missing in the Jeep JL's line up. FCA has that color available in the Charger/Challenger as "Sinamon Stick."

Maybe I need a Challenger too? :D

I don't understand why they ever got rid of it. I feel like that was a truly iconic color for a Wrangler. My head turned every single time.

@Jitzy, I really like the look for your Jeep. I have a Willy's ordered also.
  • What wheels are those?
  • What size tires are those?
  • Did you add a lift kit to your Willy's or does it just look as if you did due to the larger tires and the high clearance fenders?
  • If you did add a lift kit, whose lift kit is it?

Thanks.
