Stripped the interior to take the carpet out in preparation for monstalining it. Then changed the oil while I was at it.

Today?

I'm currently working on a custom bumper/brush guard for my ZJ. I also installed a 2" BDS lift and was wonder about the rear track bar bracket, do I need it, is it junk, is adjustable track bar better?

Went ahead and threw the spare up on the roof rack to clear out some space in the back and rewired the driving lights up front.

Trackbar relocation brackets are a disaster waiting to happen. They break more often than not, and leave carnage behind. Leave it out and save your pennies for an adjustable bar.

This. You won't be disappointed with an adjustable trackbar. They let you dial in your axle perfectly and are infinitely more reliable than a bracket.

I had an RE rear track bar & bracket (axle side) and after 2-3 wheeling trips about ripped it off.

Got rid of the useless gdm and put my HVAC controls there. Going to be putting a cb where the HVAC controls were. Still need to adjust the brackets and add one more on the bottom to pull it closer to make it flush. Also, changed my coolant temp sensor. bought a yellow top battery, just waiting to get a new higher voltage alternator next week. The battery hurt my pocket a little.
