    Cool So many mods, so little time (and money)

    So many mods, so little time (and money)-20140815_083925_zpsemmbqxbf.jpg

    Slacked off on the mods lately.... The last thing I did was add the wind deflectors. I bought a new 180 thermostat a month ago, but haven't gotten around to replacing the old one. Still need to add a catch can. Haven't decided on caliper covers vs. simply painting the calipers. I need to pick up some mud guards before the snow comes in a month or so. Thinking of 4", powder coated nerf bars, a step bar, or just go without; not sure I want something to step on since it's already low to the ground.... So much to do! And waaay down the road, I need some better wheels and tires.

    I was thinking the same. Pretty much useless, but looks pretty good. I just bought some 4" powder-coated bars yesterday on Amazon. I have a chrome piece that runs under the doors and they are Plasti-dipped. I figure the bars will protect the dip from getting rubbed off getting out of the vehicle. I'll post a pic when I get them installed.

    another reason I am keeping mine on.. as they kinda stick out a decent ways and will help protect the lower panels from rocks, ets..

    live on 1 mile gravel road so got the mudflaps and running boards to hopefully help out

    Got them in Thursday and installed them over the weekend. I peeled the dip off the chrome bottom strip, too, since it was taking a beating. I'll re-dip some other day. Four inch oval tubes: not sure I like the look, but they're not coming off now!

    Westin was doing $35 rebates, so I went with them. Still not 100% in like with them. If I use them, I hit my head on the cab. If I don't use them, they rub on my pant leg.... Maybe I'll get used to them. <fingers crossed>

    Did you plasti-dip the front grille or did you find a grille that was color matched? My struggle is that I can't decide if I want to go black grill and accents or if I want to color match...my husband wants to go black, but doesn't want to use plasti-dip. Have you had your D long enough to see it thru some tough weather conditions with the plasti-dip? If so, how well did the plasti-dip hold up?
