Replaced the battery cables, with marine terminals, and included several additional ground wires (frame, alternator, and fender). I've been having electrical issues since I got the Jeep last year and thought this would help (couldn't hurt right). Now the Jeep runs great, better than it ever has, until it just randomly shuts off and I loose all electrical power. It died on the way to work, and with the key on, I could watch the electrical system come on and go off multiple times. She didn't leave me stranded but something is definitely shorting out somewhere.

Hit Tractor Supply for an 1/2" stainless washer to get my passenger side mirror to tighten up on the top flange of the relocation bracket. That, plus moving the included thick washer to the top of the spacer gave it enough room to clear my old Daylighter for viewing through the windshield. Before it wobbled so I had it zip tied to the Daylighter to keep it more stable. I used double back tape to keep the washers and spacer in place while I tightened it.

I also told her Happy Anniversary. We've been together 20 years this week, and it's always been a pleasure to roll with 'er.

My Kenwood cable came today, just plugged it in and it registers and an AUX input. No need to change stereos, now I can play it direct off my phone or ipod with this one

I took off the T-Handle from the back lift gate. It is all rotten, and needs to have the working mechanism replaced. Anyone know where to find it? I have been on Quadratec, JC Whitney, and a few others, but none show the center mechanism where the cables connect to the handle. HELP!!

The key would not turn the starter so I jumped the starter and got it running for just over a minute. Now I have to figure out why the starter won't work with the key and then assemble the rest of it and take it for a test drive ...

Today I installed an electric fan. Not sure how much it might help, but got rid of that huge ugly fan shroud and mechanical fan. Sure cleans up under the hood, I like the way that looks.

I should think about doing that... Going through muddy water the other day I sprayed the **** out of under the hood with the water.

In the meantime I may have to do what the Land Rover guys do and stick a blanket/weighted tarp over the grille to push the water away instead of into the grille and radiator
