Busy week for me - few projects completed

I have been accumulating parts for a couple months now since buying my 02 WJ.....

Finally was able to get into the shop, fire up the woodstove and get some projects done....

First.... the 6.5" IRO Critical path kit, had some minor issues during the install, like lining up the nutserts for the from arm mount, wow, not much room to work with is there! The rear A-Arm spacer was a bit of a *****, until I layed there staring up at the rear of the Jeep cursing, and I saw the trick for getting the bolts in! I was able to get all the coils in but one, but was able to track down a spring compressor and voila.... all is well....

Took it to a buddies garage for an alignment and it rides like a dream..... but a loud dream, the KM2s are a little on the noisy side, I have had swampers and boggers, they are not that loud, but they are a little louder than my old KMs

The aforementioned KM2s are on 17x9 4.5" BS steelies, in a 285/70 size

Next I tackled the heated set on the driver's side, was pretty easy, especially since I knew where the wire cracked (I have the mark on my inner thigh from when it happened!)

I have just completed the passenger door regulator, pretty easy task.

Next up will be (imagine that) the blend doors, I am going to make all of the cuts and piece it together for when I get the Heater Treater in, that was I can complete this job later.

Last but not least tonight I will finish the install of the Infinity 3022cfs 3.5" speaker in the dash......

A busy few days for me, but well worth it!!

That's looking pretty good, you should've done the tires black out instead of white out.
