Changed spark plugs yesterday, today had the tranny fluid changed (had some debris), also apparently had a dent in the pan... guy told me to buy a skid plate if I'm gonna rock crawl. Looking at the pan.. the dent was very minor and the pounding the did to get it out was not so minor... Also changed the fuel filter, hopefully that was the problem with my engine seeming to cut out...

Pulled out the credit card - Clayton flat belly skid is coming, rear Claytons should be done in a couple weeks as long as I can get to a welder.

Got replacement 1/4 panel glass for my ZJ at the junk yard for 30.00 then had it installed by mobile tech for 60.00 tipped him 5.00 = 95.00 Price that 5 other glass repair places I called was between 237.00-290.00 for install and the glass (gotta decent deal then!)

I also got interior LED lights installed today! did the doors, hatch has a 6panel LED, and then all the lights on the roof as well as LED only one missing is the lights in the foot area but had to wait til my guy gets those in stock.
only 25.00 for all the LEDs that I needed

Also got a new JVC CD player mounting kit and install done today as well as had the dash fixed since the thieves screwed that up a bunch. Will post some pics tonight! Oh and they tossed in a back aux cord and I wired it inside the arm rest area.

Pics of the LEDs? Thinking about doing mine. I've had 5 LEDs for about two months now just haven't taken the time to install them.

I will snap a few tomorrow was gonna tonight but forgot and then I will update on my build thread as well! Just saw them though in the dark and they are really nice and crisp. Be sure to use the white ones if you have tinted windows I was told. Supposedly the blue and "xtreme purple" styles reflect a lot inside makes for a lot of glare come off the windows.

Slowly I turn...inch by inch..step by step..

Put in two new rear side position lights....a big deal I know. Admired my work on the 5k hitch I installed last week (dap&die correctly). Admired the increadiby huge dent in the rear skid plate I salvaged off my totaled Up Country ZJ. Used 18" socket/breaker bar to literally break (off) bolts and 4" cuting wheel and cold chissel to get remaining nuts. Found the best price for BFG All-Terrain on my Sears card is if I go across the State line to Michigan....no environmental fee, no shipping charges, low tax..save ~$100.
