I see and totally understand if I had the cash to spend on an Optima I would have too. I went with local parts store special but they did offer the normal 3 year warranty or whatever it was. So far no problems too! What are these military terminals your referring to?

Yea man I like those!!! I'm in the Military and have never seen them but I also don't work on any vehicles or batteries for my job Sometimes I think they say that as a pitch to sell it like hey buy me!! I'm Military grade they are rugged for Military use LOL. Kidding I'm sure they are used I just have never seen them.

Amazon Amazon
It's a bit on the higher side at $30 but I feel it'll be the "finishing touch". Theres cheaper kits but this company seems to hold the best reviews.

Oh they look like they're worth the money all right. I'll have to remember to put some on the wish list!

What flares are those? I don't recall seeing those before? Modified stock or aftermarket?

They are Rusty's Flex Flares and they discontinued them a few years ago. I found them on craigslist. They're made of plastic, but they're very sturdy. I might ditch them and go the metal fender flare route in the future, but for now they hold up just fine.

I was supposed to pick up a wagoneer header panel but the seller cancelled on me last minute, after I ordered new fender panels. I was really bummed out. So I had to cancel that, and a few days ago my water pump on my daily starting leaking/ticking, so I dropped it off to my mechanic. $200 later and that's done.
