I looked for a long time at various muffler options, but couldn’t really see a lot of benefits. So I spent $10 on spray paint and at least made it disappear.

Looks good - I’ve got the black high-heat rattle can sitting in my garage waiting for me to do this quick/easy/cheap fix as well. Hopefully you took the giant spit wad out of your tail pipe after snapping this pic -

The rear reflectors are held in by a single 7 mm screw, a tab on the side and a weak snap tab. Once the screw is removed it comes out easily.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I've done the muffler delete, which makes the job easier. You basically want to stick your head where the muffler is, so you can look straight into the back of the bumper and see the screw. You'll also want an ~8" socket extension to reach the screw. I have the steel bumpers, not sure if the other bumpers have different access.

I don't recall footrests from my YJ days (and I could page through accessory catalogs with the best of them).

Do they have a properly functional purpose, beyond stretching one's leg?
It has been my guess that the folks that add the footrest to their jeeps are also Harley riders that like ape bars and the spread eagled look with wind blowing up their pants legs.

Looks good. Do you have more pics? Curious how they look from a distance. Also how hard was the install?

Clearly you’ve never ridden a motorcycle and enjoyed the freedom it brings. Driving top and doors off, with a leg hanging out the side is the closest thing you can get on 4 wheels. I do this even if there is not another soul in sight. It’s not about attention.
Quite the contrary. I've owned dozens of motorcycles since about 6 years old. All real riding types of bikes. None of that ridiculous Harley fists in the air, parade formation, highway pegs on main St bull shit. Real bikes that are actually worth riding.

You continue hanging limbs out of moving vehicles. And I'll continue actually using them in ways that have no forgiveness for not being taken seriously. My left leg supports my driving position a worlds better when firmly braced inside the vehicle, not flopping outside of it.

Finally replaced the rear bumper with a Go Rhino one.

Relocated the parking sensors and KC reversing lights from the old bumper.

The very nasty original RHD track bar and steering damper got replaced with the Teraflex one and a Fox ATS steering damper.

Added a pair of Rigid D series rear facing red for the fog lights
