So I got a yellow jeep back in 2015 and it has been a work in progress as most Jeeps are, since the day I brought it home. I started a build thread on another forum but I’m going to restart it here. I originally had a white can of squirrels and needed some more umph so I bought this 06, 4.0 with 50k miles on it for a steal.

the interior was badly faded from sitting in the sun at the beach day in and day out but otherwise a road worthy gem.

Now the reason I mentioned the interior for both Jeeps was because the first thing I did was a full interior swap. I was going for the look of the old canary yellow Cj’s with brown/tan interior.

I went with a new carpet kit, some floor liners and chose some not too fancy aftermarket seats.

Then these came in, not to bad of an install once you get past drilling into your tub.

i forgot to mention everything that’s black on the exterior I sanded, primed, and painted with duplicolor bed armor. It has a subtle texture and is rubberized. If you use it you have to do many light coats or else it just gobs up.
