Looks like you changed out the rear fender flares... The Wrangler ff's that were on there just weren't working for me. Looks great.

Are you still planing on putting a decal kit on it?

I put this up a while ago:

I always thought the factory light/med/dark orange might look cool on a black instead of red...




They DON'T make blue anymore... sorry

I was thinking about doing a Renegade graphics kit. I think I will hold off for just a bit. I have some projects still to work on with the jeep. There are a lot of options for decal kits though . .

Just an FYI... Collins Bros are selling Phoenix Graphix stripe kits. That's who I did not mention in my Stripe kit warning thread.

Thanks for the heads up. I was just going to do something simple though. I like the look of this:



Just something to break up the all black. I am getting black/grey rugged ridge neoprene seat covers, for the front and back seats, to help give the jeep a little color.

I was going to re-upholster my seats but it was going to cost too much money so I also went with the seat covers. I'm very happy with the end result.

So here it is as of today. I found a set of seats out of a '80s renegade for 200 bucks. They are that baseball color. Then I put some rugged ridge neoprene covers on them. The seats I had before were out of a nissan and they were bolted in place. The new seats have all the correct hardware, which is awesome. I also had a minor timing issue and vacuum line issue, which is all fixed now. The best top bikini top was also put on yesterday. I think it came out pretty good. I think I am in to it for around 3 grand now.

Here are some pics before a good washing. There is still some white wet sanding powder on it. I just washed it but it is too dark now to take any pictures.

Here are some updated pictures. I had the inside lined with SEM Rock-it bedliner. SEM Truck Bed Liner I also had the half doors, that used to be blue, painted black. The mirrors on them have been removed. I bought a set of axles, D30/AMC 20, with 4.10 gearing, but those haven't been installed yet. The front has a detroit trutrac and the rear has a trac-lok. Just waiting on the funds to buy a lift and tires right now.





Here is a little vid from a few days ago. I didn't get stuck, I just had to back up a bit and go around the rock. It was fun but the gearing was terrible in the woods. The open diffs and the 31 inch A/Ts didn't help much either, but it was still fun to play around in the woods regardless, haha.

^Thanks man. I got REALLY lucky with it. So far it hasn't needed anything too major, which is awesome I did replace the carb and some little stuff, but that was to be expected considering the age of the CJ. The big expense will be the lift and tires. Those things will be more than I paid for the jeep, haha.

Ordered up a 4 inch lift, heavy duty shackles, stainless steel brake lines, and a steering stabilizer today. Should take 1.5 weeks to come in. I did get my tires in today. 33x12.5x15 MTRs. Also got the Jeep back from the paint shop today. There was a crack in the filler, where the steel was replaced, and my buddy wanted to fix it. The doors were also painted and fitted on to the Jeep. I wanted that done because I want to get a soft top and use the hard doors. Its running great but I have a small power steering fluid leak I will need to take care of at some point.

Sorry about the garbage iphone pics.






I will be putting on a set of axles (dana 30/amc 20) with 4.10s at the same time. The front has a Detroit truetrac and the rear has the trac lok. Should work well with the 33s.
