    Painting the Coil Springs

    Soon I am going to install a Rancho 2 in lift on my White JLUR. I am thinking that I want the coil springs to be red like the front hooks. Have anyone done this? Got picture of your Jeep with red coil springs? I was thinking of powder coating them, or using farm implement spray paint.

    Don’t paint them have them powder coated more durable. Eventually the paint will crack or chip.

    We painted the coils on both our jeeps. I did the WJ twice because I got a second set of different springs years later. The first time, although I prepped them well, I used no clear coat and they flaked and chipped a lot. The second time, I put on 2 coats of clear coat and surprisingly, it's held up well. Same with my wife's Jeep, clear coat has protected pretty well.

    If you don't mind the time and money for powder coating, that would definitely be the way to go.

    Do a google search for “Jeep JK red springs”. There are quite a few pictures of what you are looking for. As already mentioned, powder coat them. And make sure that you talk to the shop about their process. Make sure they use as low of a temp as possible for curing/baking the powder coat so that the springs aren’t affected by the heat.

    Honestly I'm not a fan of any other color coils than black. I think most colored ones look rough after some time. The only colored coils I like are King Blue on coilovers..😉

    Yeah after looking at some done in red, I think I will stay with the black. I got to looking at the red one on my sxs and they have not aged well.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
