Yeah, come to think of it, most of the add-ons are recycled in one form of another. My stinger is 1"rigid pipe I got from our scrap pile at work. My tire carrier is 2" stock one of my customers gave me from his scrap pile, my ammo can was donated by a friend in Crestview. I guess this has been one very eco-friendly build from the start. That is kinda cool, huh?

Bathed my YJ in the cleansing pools of mud today. My girl and I had a fun time. I think my rear axle is shifted close to an inch over to the driver's side. Doesn't drive any different. In the middle of searching this.

I just took spare window tie down parts I had and made a bracket for it. I can take pictures tomorrow and pm them to ya. It's a real simple trick.

Last night put on OME springs and Bilstein shocks and poly bushings. Ditched the trac bars and sway bar. Took it our for a brisk cruise through the desert. For those who know the area, went from the Pahrump dry lake bed (This was the starting point of the Amazing Race a couple years ago), Then I went toward Tecopa Ca, and from there was going to end up at Dumont Dunes. Well, I was enjoying the soft springs doing highway speeds through the desert. Almost got airborne a couple of times. Probably went around 20 miles and heard a hiss. Hit a freakin rock with the P rated street tires the Jeep came with. I pull over, not worried because I have the stock jack and spare. I jacked it up and pulled the tire, and went to get the spare and... IT HAS A G$% D@#N LUG NUT LOCK ON IT!
I just bought this a month ago, and knew nothing about the lock! This jeep is a Sahara and has pockets all over the place. The desperate search begins about 20 miles into the desert from anything. I had a phone but no service. Almost ready to give up, I look in the last pocket behind the drivers seat. THE KEY! Changed tire, and threw both the key and the lock about 50 yards into the desert. Made it home without further incident.

The install:
Went very smoothly as desert Jeeps don't have rust or frozen fasteners. The frame is still shiny black from the factory. It took a little less that 4 hours and only bloodied one knuckle. Very few swear words uttered.

Yes it's getting new tires. Note the spare on rear.



Dusty... The paint is like new for now. It will soon have desert "pinstriping"



Yes an automatic. Stab it N go. It has less than 100k and the 4.0 has decent power.




A rock cut the tread about 3" long right in the middle. P rated tires don't belong on a Jeep.




Oh, that's why it was sagging in the rear. It was a little squirrely around corners too! Slightly used spring anyone?




Thanks for the good advise all. The hardware came off easily without heat or penetrating oil. The desert is good for something...
