Changed the lower control arm bushings. Original with 130k on them. I have seen worse but not by much. Should improve handling.

nick I mounted my CB on the side of the console.

I ran the hot wire straight to the battery with an inline fuse and the ground is on a bolt under the console. The coax is run under the console under the carpet and back seat, under the left rear wheelwell plastic and thru the same hole as the taillight harness

i drilled a small hole and used a much bigger self tapping screw to mount the antenna bracket and it is holding fine. when drilling the hole for your antenna drill the hole just big enough for the plastic washer to fit snuggly in.
If you need more details shot me a pm and i'll explain in more detail.

^ That's exactly where my CB and mic sit. It's about the best spot a ZJ has. Oh, and as a tip, a 3D or 4D mag-lite slides in between the center console and the ashtray perfectly and stays in pretty well too.

Took her to town and took it to the car wash. They did a crappy job. Ohwell. I adjusted my driving lights and cleaned it out. Put tools away from putting my switch in the Vic. I got all my tools in a tool box ini the back. And my husky tool kit thing I got from lowes fits good I between my sub box and the right side wall. And I found out i really need seat covers. My gerber caught on the crack and ripped the Leather even more.i reset the over head thing for mpg and I drove it like a pooch and got it 20 on the average. Haha. We will see what it gets to as I drive it more.

We had him and 2 others winched out with their cage top cross bars in that bank behind him. One took 1 hour to recover

Finally got around to it.





The back is finally done, but it was too late by the time that i finished it to get a picture.

Now, does anyone know how to get rid of the gold stripe on the side? I hear its under the clear coat, but i was curious if touch up paint would hide it?
