youll notice the brush guard missing yeah first time i got it stuck and realized i had no tow points.. as you can see the brush guard didnt last.. well one night sitting at home drinking decided i wanted a different color so taped it off and rolled it on.. yes rolled..lol

ive added a 2" spacer \ shackle lift, rough country 9000 shocks and braided lines. also a JKS track bar and motion offroad 1 ton steering. also a new set of wild country mtx's
started working on it this summer i found some rust free doors from an 86 mj so i modded the hinges to have lift off doors and fixed the floor boards and cut the flares off..

heres the back plates shaved down





rusty floors

what happened to the paint?
I'm guessing "..so taped it off and rolled it on.." meant just that, and not "taped it off, sanded everything, wiped down with laquer thinner, then rolled on paint mixed for application with a roller."

Either way, if it looked good for longer than it took to do it...you win.
