So after a week and a half of rigorous testing, You wanna see some results eh? well surprisingly enough, it didn't look that bad.

I made sure I tested this thing good, so I drove through LOTS of mud, corn fields, 1 foot deep water pits doing 40 (boy that was fun, water shot 3 feet over the roof, and onto the hood and everything else), clay slip, rain, sleet, snow, and a good bit of highway speeds on this thing. Water was frozen onto it, (from the pits) along with grass, and it was subjected to heat from the engine bay when I went mudding.

So this is what it looked like after a week and a half.

Not too bad eh? the last rain took most of the mud off of it and left only coffee looking stuff, but it's not too bad for being clear tape and saran wrap.

I'm low on light at the moment, so now you'll have to wait till I can get more sunlight to take pics of the new and "improved" grille blocks! Hope that's tomorrow, but it's supposed to rain, so hopefully they won't be too weather worn by photo day!

Yea.. I drive a Jeep and I'm on a fuel economy site, but you just wouldn't understand... "It's a Jeep thing!" *Jeep Wave*
