When I'm done fixing it from the crash I'm going to fix all the rust. It's all surface rust other than the front pass door I have one of those with slight pitting. Going to scuff everything up and use a rust stopping primer then paint it flat black. Get clear corner and turn signals. Going to put some vht on the turns. And the rears. Upgrade the tail lights and turn signals and parking lamps all to led

Little update since its been almost a month. Went to pick a part. Tons of zjs there only one wrangler. Winning . But got new header panel. New Ac condenser. A 3rd brake light. Mine was broke in half when I bought it. Just ordered driver side head light. Going to order pass side. All the ones at jy were foggy. Then ordered clear corners. All external lights will be switched to led other than head lights. Then I need to get the head liner done before winter. Also swapping cloth seats into my zj. And getting Laredo door panels with the plastic that Dosnt peel like the leather on the limiteds. Then thats about it I think. On winter break paint is going on. Decided on od green. And I'm Probably getting iro 3.5 or 4.5 in lift. Havnt decided yet. I have decided on running 31x10.50 good year wrangler authority's. Unless I can find a cheaper at like those. Or even a mt for that matter. Tread rights??? And getting d widow soft 8s.

Pulled my seats today. Half inch impact I borrowed from my boss. Pb blasted 2x once last night before I went in. Tonight before I started. Not 1 bolt broke :2tumbsup: and put upper rad support back in. Sweep out the jeep tomorrow after work. Then Saturday go to junk yard and get seats. And today I ordered white LEDs for the third break light. As well as the 194s that are in the tail lights. And ordered amber 194s that are in the turns in the front. And also ordered 1157s in led for the front turns. Those had to be special ordered cause not a lot of people get them. And it this weekend or next week I'm ordering the 3055s for the tails. Those are 60$ for 6. And eventually I am getting white license plate light. As well as map lights and the lights in the sun visor.

Well was told that my 194s. White and amber leds will be shipped Saturday. The 1197s need special orders because amber isn't a normal color. Those will be a few weeks. Then I'll order the 6 3057s I need for the tails. Then I'm going to buy two kicker comp 10s and put in my box so I have two working subs. Then it's on to the stuff everyone loves on here... LIFTS. But first. Cloth seats will be in Saturday night.

Decided that my little power splitter from Walmart would find its way right there. Plenty of space in the back. Going to pop the faceplate off and see if I can make a bracket to squeeze the plastic with.

I only had the dual splitter. It fit directly where the ashtray went. Keep up the great work.

Never thought about that. I think this is too big. But I think what I'm going to do is take the face plate off. I did already. Get a piece of steel to put in between the body of it and the back of the counsel. And I might put some niteshade on the out side. Cause the sliver is really going break up the dark interior. And i like things to match. We will see how it goes. The screws will have to be longer too. And I'd like to wire it in somewhere to an ignition source. Ideas?

I just thought if this. My power outlet has never worked. Just the cigarette plug. I'll take them out. Cut the wires for the power outlet and see if they have power. If the do I'll just splice into that. It could be the outlet not working? Right? That would make things easy.

All done. Yes I am getting a new center counsel and actually a new plug. This one was kinda a test dummy. A lot more of an extensive project than I thought. But well worth it. It sticks out about a 1/2in from te counsel. And a buddy of mine is power coating the brackets black.
