Yes, did the whole dog and pony show haha. Took the calipers off and hung them in the wheel well (don't disconnect the brake lines) and pull the caliper brackets off and paint them on the bench. I'm not gonna be happy if I sink time into them and they start peeling or look bad in two years so I might as well do it right haha. In total was prob about 12 hours start to finish.
12 hours!?! I am just not that dedicated.

Well, I wanted to make the radio bezel orange. Ideally to match the vent rings. I don't want to paint it. So I ordered some different vinyl's. Turns out that none of them were what I was looking for. Here's a pic of failed attempts with sample pieces.
I'm still hunting.

It looks like that instrument panel pulls straight out (no screws holding it in), it that correct?

Anyone notice the Locker Switch Panel and the Automatic Shiter Handle Release are both Anodized Red and not Mojave Orange.

Does Jeep make those parts in Mijave Orange

The controls pull off and there is one screw to pull off the bottom with the window buttons it’s all really easy

Yeah, its a bit deceiving. Also, it was more of a metal film ,so it at least gave the impression of a match to the vent rings. Its adhesive properties were crap. I think it was some cheap film from china.

I put orange D-Rings to keep the accents when I replaced the bumper and tow hooks.

I have been looking at this bumper too, looks great. I see you took off the Quadratec logo. Was this just a sticker or badge that came right off? Also, do you think it would fit a 12k lb Apex Badland Winch (21.5” long x 6.5” deep)? Last, did you mount it to the factory holes? The reviews had complaints of the holes being too far back towards the grille.

A. The quadratec logo is just a sticker. I took off right away easily.
B. I saw a photo in quadratec site a Badland winch installed. My advice is ask to quadratec expert if it will fit.
C. The bumper will fit tight in the factory holes and is expected to be like this. I pulled out an truck from my driveway (I regret I did not ask to my wife make a video) and the truck was deep in the snow. Bumper and winch make your job just fine.
Is better to mount the winch in the bumper before, then put the bumper with the winch in place. It will be heavier to put in place bumper and winch assembled together like I did, but if you have someone to help will be better and you will not hurt your back.
Bellow a picture I found in quadratec website using Badland that seems to me a 12k winch.
Hope this reply helps you

I am replacing my Factory plastic bumpers with LOD bumpers. Since I love the orange highlights on the truck, I started looking for color matches for shackles. I read about Punkin orange being a match but wanted something standard I could take to a powder coater. I found that Prismatic Brentwood Orange, while not perfect, is a really good match. Shackles will be ordered this week.

Well, another mojave received some Rock Blox with orange logo. Other than the rear bracket holes being a fuzz too small, it was an easy install 👍
PS: I got the XL/original size.

Looks good John! You'll really appreciate these next time you're driving in the snow!
