My Rubicon has been defaced!

Got my Jeep back from the body shop, can't put the decals back on until the hood cures. Is this what it's like to drive a non-Rubicon. How depressing!

Oh got new rock sliders too, waiting for Poison Spyder rocker armor to show.

Looks better like that! Get a small (custom made) Rubicon sticker in black and stick it just above the "Wrangler" on eack side. Just my 2cents.

Eh, I like the stickers. Not necessarily because they say "Rubicon" but the white hood just looks too bland with nothing on it.

No that's what it's like to drive a wrong color Jeep

I agree, there isn't enough contrast with all that white. Looks like they did a good job though

I gotta agree with going a different direction.

Don't put the "stock" Rubicon stickers back on....waaaaay overplayed.

Subtle and original is better.


Nice rig by the way!

I like it plain too, but I'd also pull the wrangler sticker off of the side. I de-badged my Rubicon years ago. Did you order the Brawler Rockers? I'm looking to pick those up soon. I am also anxiously awaiting their 2 door Crusher corners.

I have been debating whether or not to take off the "RUBICON" on my Jeep and put a custom logo on it instead. Just haven't figured out what I want it to say!

After a few more upgrades, I might just put ">RUBICON" on my X... J/K man, whatever floats your boat. I'm not quite a sticker whore yet, but I do like a little contrast. But if you do put something back on there, don't go back to the stock lettering, get creative!

I like the idea of the reflective decals. If the shop installs them like they did my window regulator they will be fucked up and redone anyway, and may go that route. I'm not too big on decals, I have a "hummer recovery vehicle" on the rear corner, but that's about it.

I just got the sliders that are on there now. I ordered the rocker armor that just bolts to the tub. Steel. Powder coated.
