    Yeah, I decided I needed to clean up the side of my Jeep. So, today the Sport and 4.0 stickers came off!

    Honestly, I think the Wrangler sticker is coming off tomorrow.

    I'm liking it!! IMG_20161228_161611.jpg

    I think it will look better without the Wrangler sticker as well. White looks really clean with none of those decals.

    I like it!

    Actually, it was pretty cold here today - I think it dipped into the 60's during the day! ;)

    Yep, I stood back and looked at it for a while and came to the same conclusion. My hands just hurt too much to take those off today also - but that's what tomorrow is for!

    A hair dryer and WD40 will get them off in seconds.

    Looks good, I would keep the Jeep stickers though. When I changed mine to the distresses logos I had them off for a few days and it just looked weird.

    Yep, I planned on leaving the Jeep one on - need it for the black and white contrast thing I'm going for ;)

    Finished it off just now, and I think it looks great without the others! IMG_20161229_134316.jpg

    Is chrome so wrong? Maybe I'm too old for black wheels. I like a little shine

    I guess I'm too old for black wheels too. I wouldn't go for chrome like I did back in the sixties but I do like an aluminum finish on my wheels.

    The red TJ is my previous TJ which was stolen, the black is what I'm running now.
