Then that should be it for round two. Any suggestions?
I have a set of AVS inchannel vents installed, but was thinking of selling them. PM me if interested - they were like $60 new and I could go $40 shipped. I personally like the Weathertech brand better, but they are expensive.

Just thought I would post an update on the Chrome Handles. I just put them on earlier this evening and I'm loving them. They make the Jeep stick out that much more. I will post pictures as soon as I take some. They were very easy to install and a great investment!

No Comp is as clean as the SkyComp!

I just wiped her down today with detailer.

Siriusly, OTW's Comp is super clean. I would imagine the black is a PITA to keep looking like that!

BTW OTW, is that the Wal-Mart hood louvers you got there? I was thinking about getting a set for mine.

Yeah the black is a PITA to keep clean, but easier to get that "well-used" jeep look lol. Mine gets washed and then looks good for about 2 days until the dust gets really visible.

OTW's is looking good, nice and clean. For me If I was getting the chrome handles I think I would fork out for the mirror covers too just to complete the look. Definitely stands out among the crowd!

Thanks FFL, lochinprc, and Sky for the comments! I try to keep the Jeep clean. I probably wash her about two times a week. lochinprc I am still debating the chrome mirrors, not sure if I like them yet. Skyeye those are from some online store ... autotrucktoys.com I believe. I'll get some better pics soon. I love taking pictures of the Jeep. I find that I get the best results at dusk.

If any of you are bored and feel ambitious I won't stop you from coming and washing mine. Here's what it looks like right now.

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

Nothing like highway salt to make a mess. The only thing I hate about winter.

Thanks Cherokee! Yeah I can keep her pretty clean during the summer but when winter rolls around i'll post some new pics :P It won't be as pretty. I'm actually excited for the first winter in the Jeep though. All my other winters were in a Ford Taurus and more recently a Grand Am.
