Little bit of spring rust cleaning up on the rockers. Can't wait to have rock rails...



Just doing little things until I start my build and lift thread for this which I just picked up yesterday!

I got tired of trying to find a way to attach extra lights to the front bumper, so I stopped at the local JY and found couple of extra cross beams for the luggage rack. I put one in front of the Rage basket rack and used it to mount some new lights. The Rage rack and the lights have been this week's big project.

Took me about an hour to do all of mine with just pbblaster and appropriate socket/wrench in an apartment lot. Stickey nuts and bolts I guess?

From ZJ to TJ.

Yes, it snows in Texas.

yeah I took it off I did't really give it much thought about the sealant but I guess I will soon see! I did it because mine was flaking paint all over the place and it looked like sh*t that and I was board! I think it looks much better now.
