i put in new hids and took pictures for writeups...
kinda just wanted to see where my progress is, but this is mostly electrical for now.

What I've Done:
Fixed paint in several spots, more to go...
removed all stock decals
removed power antenna (mine didnt work) and replace with hidden antenna under dash.
Kenwood HD Radio with CD and USB / AUX input
1600 watts worth of PG amps, PG all the way around to replace all stock speakers. 12" Kicker in custom side mount box.
LED 3rd brake light
Converted rear vents to LED sidemarker lights (no updated pics, it was too light!)
Backup Sensors
Stampede Snap-in Rain Guards
Stampede big deflector
Heated Seats
Push button gas door release.
Stellar Full function alarm with remote start
Spyder 1 pc headlight with LED
10000k HID conversion
Yellowtop deep cycle battery
digital VIC swap with all issues fixed.
LED light conversion (was full fixture, now just bulb replacements and EP27 no load flasher)
Homelink Garage Door opener in visor (no pictures, from 98)
starter
alternator
tensioner pulley
master cylinder
AC Heater Core
All hoses
all the usual stuff


Future Stuff:
touch up rest of paint
3" Lift
Wheels & Tires
Upgrade and paint cladding
Dyna-mat throughout
power leather seats
fiberglass fabric on doors and paint
Exhaust
Safari Bar w/ lighing
swap center console for dark gray (my original grey was swapped for tan before i owned it.)

Custom Fog's (5 1/2 inch Snake-Eye's)?
Limo Tint Windows
Shave antenna hole (from stock antenna removal)

I'm definitely thinking white out. And thanks. It does look a lot better in pics and from a distance. I have lots of little door dings and surface scratches from who knows what.

IMO only the chrome outline is really ricey and I plan to paint it black to fix the issue (I have them on my zj as well).

agreed. I've actually gotten a bunch of compliments on it from other zj drivers, but if you didnt have a chrome grill, i dont know how good it will look. worth $100 which is cheaper then i could find oem when i was looking (originals were were melted when i got the jeep).

although it doesnt seem like it, i'm not big into rice, i just work at a place where i get all these supplies for next to nothing.

I put windshield wiper fluid in it so I could shut the Vic up about that. And while looking for the radiator drain plug( which I never found) I noticed I'm pretty sure it's like sway bar connector. Or somthin. Connects sway bar to axel was busted and the part that connects to the axel was lodged in the coil spring. And I have all the parts to put in the front so I just put that in for now. Still want to know we're radiator drain plug is and how to flush it and the heater core. Iv never done it

Did some fine tuning on my dccontrol/taurus fan install.
I added a relay and switch to kill the power for water crossings. I also wanted an indicator light for when the ran was running. I was informed from dccontrol that tapping into the high speed wire with the led will result in a different brightness for each speed of the fan. I hope the red switch will remind me to turn it back on

Today I pulled my speed sensor and cleaned it trying to fix my erratic speedometer, odometer, trip meter but it didn't seem to work so here in a few days I'll be replacing that sensor all together.
