good call on keeping the ZJ, although i bet all of us have let all the tiny issues get to us at one point, i know they bother me. gauges look sweet, pics of how you mounted the highlift?

No pics of the hilift just yet. The panel was a piece of aluminum I measured and cut up. Sanded it down with 80grit and clearcoated it. I want to redo it with the tach where it is and the other 4 gauges in a row. we will see. After all of that I was reminded why I almost gave up on it lol. Alternator went out today. Oh well

Went to the junkyard and found a towing package, I had some metal to recycle too so i was only out about $12 and gas, well worth it. I'm going to clean it up and hit it with a can of paint before it gets mounted.

Fixed my random dome light activation problem I was having. Turns out the door-open switches are adjustable. The center moves in and out. I pulled it all the way out, closed the door like normal, and it was good to go. Pretty awesome.

Hmmm... I changed out the fluid in the differentials with synthetic. Changed my tranny fluid and filter. Also synthetic.

And I replaced the muffler & part of the exhaust pipe. The previous owner (I've just had the Jeep for a little over a week) welded the exhaust system in there in such a way that the tail-pipe touched the rear sway-bar. Not good.

Oh yeah... I drove it, too.
