Spent the last couple of days removing my grille, taking out the grille inserts/bezels/fog light bezels and painting them from silver to matte black to gain a slightly more aggressive/manly look on my Sahara. I really like the contrast and it turned out great. Two coats matte black/primer combo, two coats matte clear coat. Also added a new decal. I'm a sucker for them. My wife rolls her eyes... LOL

Oh geez.... I thought I was done with decals for a while but now I need to look at putting one there... Looks nice, creative thinking.

Already posted this in another area but thought I would share here, I don’t do much mods anymore as my needs at present are pretty satisfied but had been looking at the Bestop SR for several months and finally made the move, it’s pretty pricy for what it is but in just the past couple days I can see it as a game changer.

I am not gonna miss those freedom panels in the summer

I agree 100%. That's one of the most functional mods of all. I've got it on both my JL and JK. I just wish Bestop would find the time to produce the retractable sun screen for the JL that is there for the JK.

Nice looking Jeep!

First mod done on my first ever Jeep! I installed a Rugged Ridge Venator stamped steel bumper along with a Warn VR EVO 10S winch.

As expected, the bumper install was a bit of a bear. The instructions are slightly above IKEA level, so I studied them carefully but still made some minor but easily fixed mistakes along the way. I didn’t have any misalignment issues that others have said are common but my factory LED fog lights didn’t work with the brackets. The curve was too shallow. I bought a Ryobi angle grinder at Home Depot and fixed that in short order. I also didn’t like the gray lower bumper shell so I painted it with Rust-Oleum textured flat black and it’s a great match.

I’m very happy with this result!

Looks good. I’m leaning towards the stubby version of this bumper.

My awesome wife @BbyGrlJJ recently got me a Rigid 20” bar for a gift. Thought of mounting on my stinger, but wanted it higher. There appears to be limited options, but went with the Rigid Adapt mount. It’s not for this specific LED, but it works. Came out nice! Night pics to follow! At this point, my VOSwitch panel is full of lights and I decided to move my compressor to AUX2. AUX1 is winch on/off and AUX3/4 are winch in/out. Switches be full!

Question for everybody out there. What are your tires measuring setting a level across the top and measuring them from ground to bottom of level 285s, 315, 35 inch, 37 inch?
