You cleaned it up nicely...the last 3 years I used it, it was my landscaping truck so it got quite dirty.
One last comment, YOU WILL NOT pass inspection. From the lights, to the blacked out lenses, it won't pass. Troopers and other locals will pull you constantly. Plus, it's a safety issue IMHO. Blacked out tails are a no-no. Other than that she looks good. Take care of my baby.

If this were my truck, I'd change out the switches you put on the console (a bit ghetto, IMO) and pick up some zombie switches. Check the net, they're out there. There's more discussion on the Jeep forums. Basically, a switch with etched laser cutting with various LED backlighting. Check it out! And yes, my Jeep will be Zombie certified one of these days (but not my Tacoma).

Soory bout that...Sounds like the Statey was the hater!!!

I know how it is sellin a baby and seeing it change.

A few yrs ago I spent hundreds of hours restoring a 64 1/2 split window VW bus and sold it to a lady who gave it to her 16 yr old son. Driving down the road past an accident I saw said dumb@#s with the VW smashed to hell from running a red while trying to light a joint. Heartbreaking.

I was just razzin ya about the hater comment bud.

was going to smoke the inside of my head lights but i started to late. didnt have time to do the over thing and paint and put my grill all back together before the rain. so i just tinted the outer part while i had it all taken apart.









not much different. but it will be darker when i smoke the inside.

Yes it is - rustoleum shake and spray rattle can stuff - pretty tough stuff - I only have 1 chip in it and I'm not sure how it happened... but, I can just spray some more on. It was super easy to put on - I did a write up on all the mods to my truck on my build thread - click the truck in my signature to see further details - and the lights will be next on the mod list...
