I wish we had that kind of variety here! But no snow on the mountains till September, and even then I doubt it's legal to go up there.

Those are pictures I've been trying to find. Thanks for posting them. I've been thinking about doing the same thing for my 35, but now that I see it I don't know if there would be enough room for my dog to sit on the floor behind the front seats. All I need room for is one passenger plus the dog.

You could always raise it up....just adjust as high as you can to clear whatever top you run. Just a thought....measure carefully

I have a custom built sport cage vs family cage that I'm putting in and plan to run a tonneau over the back with bikini top and windjammer. The plan is to mount the tire above the tonneau. I'll probably still go that route. Just have to play with the spacing and exactly where I want it.

Thats grounds for a hidden battery disconnect so it will never happend again. My father's sister took his 67' fastback Mustang without asking one night and t-boned a semi at a stop light she ran and totaled his car. that was 45 years ago they still dont talk about it to this day.

Thats basically the same parameters as mine. I want to keep the tire between the tonneau cover, windjammer and rear rollcage. It makes things a lot more restricted but i was able to muck up the tire flat or with a bit of an angle and make it fit. 37s would fit as well. Definitely no room for a passenger with his configuration. U may have room for a dog but it all depends on its size and the kind of room u want it to have. I'll post a pic when its all done by this weekend

Found A/C control knobs

I ordered these A/C control knobs for my '95. One of the original knobs was missing and the other was cracked and kept falling off. These replacements from Jeep Air look like the original knobs.

(Last night) I dropped the skidplate, transmission, and transfer case so I could give them a good cleaning before bolting the tranny to the engine and sliding it back in as a unit. I'll bolt up the transfer case afterward, then mount the skidplate. I still need to clean out the framerails, the nuts for the skidplate bolts were buried in mud from my fatal stuck last year and it took forever to get through with my fingers.

[QUOTE=Sparrows;15622122]Phew!
Stayed up until 4am last night working on the paint job and buttoning my rig up for today's wheeling. Got most of the paint done, but I do have a ton of touch up work to do. By the time I got showered up, the Jeep loaded, and tools put away it was 5:30 am. Had to leave to meet the wheeling group by 7am so I ended up just getting breakfast and coffee and heading out. Dear lord I'm tired now!

Then wheeled the crap out of it today. Overheated in the 104* heat when the ground popped off my fan. Then I blew up my rear u-joint and drove the 35 miles home in front wheel drive lol! I think my pinion angle on the 8.8 ended up a scosche high. Is there any way to bring it down a notch that does not include shims or new perches. Looking at how everything settled I'd say it's about 2* high of where it should be. Not really any vibes except during a hard launch, but I should probably deal with that!

Oh and a pic from last night...I'll get more up later.


Time for a shower and a nap...

Cheers[/QUOTE
I havn't been on in a few days But I wanted to say the paint job is Bad A$$!
