Had the wrangler Wrapped in PPF (Paint Protection Film) which requires removing all the decals. Here are new decals from Pixel Decals I replaced the Rubicon Hood with my Own design black on black

Nice. So does the film make it more shiny? Or just prevents paint from corrosion?

All of the above. It is high gloss but most of all it protects from scratching and rock chips. We do a lot of narrow trails or Forest Service roads that are dirt/gravel and overgrown in early summer. The film is damn near bulletproof, but if it does get scratched it is self healing. I have STEK installed that also has a built in Ceramic Layer so very little sticks to it. It cuts down how often I have to wash. Also no wax or sealers required

Your build is coming along nicely! Love the decal!
Thanks, seems like it is never ending, Now doing the flat tow setup as we just purchased a new Tiffin Diesel Pusher and heading to MOAB when it cools down. Leaving for 118F heat in Phoenix to pick her up Friday.

Beautiful setup on the XE man. I have a cart before the horse thing going on. The same wheels w/ ridge grapplers waiting to go on a granite jlur hopefully delivered this week. Can only hope they look as good as your setup. Thanks for sharing

I considered a lot of wheels... The one task I hate most is cleaning wheels, these are the easiest I have EVER had and they stay clean. So many wheels have nooks and crannies that hold dirt and a bitch to clean, not these.

This probably needs to be a new thread. But being a soon to be newbe jeep owner I have a question of what most do with their takeoffs? Sell or keep and put back on when trading?

Do the ice jlu hood light bar mounts work on our 4xes without any tweaking? Did they come with your rc light or are they a separate piece?

Painted the ugly silver muffler and added Fox Shocks to the Teraflex ST1 lift

Looks great. I'm wondering about those exposed shock shafts that seem installed upside down(?). If they get nicked in combat, you will leak fluid, right? Isn't there a plastic shroud like on top of the oem's? I'm new to modding Jeeps, so forgive my ignorance.
