I used a 3M Stripe Off Wheel...Part # 07499

It was $23 at a local Paint & Body supply store. I bet I could do 4 cars with one wheel, as long as it came off as easy as the Jeep.

I finished the fuel hoses today for the TJ filler swap. I had picked up a spare YJ filler and hoses on eBay for a few bucks and after looking at all the fixes for this swap, this might be the best way to go.
I found that using pretty much all of one hose at the tank, and the elbow of the small end of the spare hose. This will allow for a 1" barbed hose fitting to be used to connect the main filler hose and a 3/4" fitting for the vent hose.

Here is the vent hose. For this one, you cut off the flared end and use almost all of both hoses.

I have to pick up the barbed fittings and some hose clamps (I have some clear tubing stuck in them just to try to stop some vapors, it's not on the road yet) But by using two stock hoses, it looks like it will work great! I have seen much worse paths from a filler neck to the tank, so I think it will be just fine. I need to fill the tank and see if I am right first.

I also mounted up the TJ plate frame today. The frame covers all the holes perfectly! Once the lines are done, I will make a block off plate to fill in the old filler hole.

Got tangled up in my iPhone charging cable last time out on the trail. In doing so, catapulted my phone onto my Monstalined floor pan with a loud clang. I didn't want to do that again, so here's my solution

The Cig Lighter on the stock YJ is in a bad spot to dangle cables from. It interferes with shifting into 4WD and sometimes with the transmission shifter as well.



To remedy this, I chose to install a cigarette lighter outlet on the inside of my factory center console lid.



I took the top half of the arm rest off, drilled a small hole in the lower hinged section, bolted the $4 universal cigarette plug I got a Autozone to it.

Crimped on some connectors, drilled a small hole in the bottom drivers-side of my console, and routed the wire out and under the console lip.



From there, I ran it directly towards the under-sill of the driver's side door, and fed it through the existing split loom towards the front of the vehicle. I zip tied it to the floor cleat to hold it in place after I covered it in split loom.



I then pulled the ground wire out just at the factory ground point above and in front of the e-brake assy. Crimped on a hoop connector, and attached the ground. Ran the power along the underside of my dash, through the firewall, and spliced in an in-line all weather 15 amp fuse. I ran a large grade wire through this process as well as fuse, with the intention of upgrading to a 2 outlet cig ports under the lid in the future. To run an air compressor etc.



From there, I opened up the relay box, crimped on another hoop connector, and secured power via the common rail there. Once that was completed, tested the set up with my cig-adaptor USB plug and all is well.

[

Now I can charge my phone without any cords or cables interfering with shifting. Another added benefit is that I can leave my USB charger and cable safely tucked into the center console while I'm away from the vehicle. Less visual temptation for the random passerby.



Total time invested about an hour. Materials; $4, I got the wire, fuse, and connectors from work.
