    I went to Moab in August and had a blast!

    Trails I ran include:
    Fins & Things
    Hell's Revenge
    Cliff Hanger
    Moab Rim
    Poison Spider
    Gold Bar Rim
    Golden Spike

    Damage included:
    Brake caliper, rotor and rear brake pads: somehow a brake pad fell out on Cliffhanger and demolished my rotor and caliper and drained out most of my brake fluid. Not the best trail to lose your brakes on. Thankfully it was on the last obstacle and I had help getting it home. (Thanks Ludski)

    Front driveshaft: The boot ripped but thankfully didn't leak any fluid. We taped and silconed it. I am looking to upgrade it fairly soon.

    Rest of the damage was just dents and scratches on my bumpers, a fender flare and exhaust tips. All pieces I plan to upgrade anyways.

    I just ordered the Rugged Ridge wheel trim rings for all my wheels. Wish I would have gotten them before Moab.

    What colour do you guys think I should paint them?

    Do a brushed aluminum finish- paint it with a silver spray paint but before the paint dries take some a scotch brite pad and lightly drag it across the surface then clear over top of that.

    You guys are making this decision much harder!
    Originally I wanted pink, but I don't want my Jeep coming off as girly. But both your suggestions sound awesome though. Hmmmmm...

    Plum crazy brushed finish would be cool.....particularly with them 'supposedly' coming out with plum crazy soon.
