I helped him install these and they were easy to install and very solid. Perfect for hitting cats in the road.

Nice! I had to do the bus driver AC for a bit (fan) and found it gets better if you mount one of those personal misters up too... Great when sitting in the woods while someone gets unstuck.

So I haven't posted about my jeep lately, I recently bought a Spartan locker for the rear axle.I just got around to getting it installed today. I'm looking forward to testing it out and seeing how it does.

Since I ripped out the back carpet, I needed some bed liner so I went with the Monstaliner 1 gallon kit.

Before:





After:





I think this is a very good product. It came out very well even though I have the painting skills of a 3 year old.

Put on these hood struts so now it makes lifting the hood much easier, and I don't need to use the hood prop.

I got them from a guy on NAXJA.

I'll take a hood over an XJ hatch any day. Related story, one of the guys at work was dicking around on a Subaru, had his hand on the fender talking to someone when the struts gave out and the hood slammed right on his hand. He was just enough in between the drivers door and middle of the hood he couldn't reach either release.

I actually keep a metal pipe in the back for the very reason of my back hatch. Did he break any fingers from that?
