Tinted my windows. I used a $14 pre cut kit from eBay. The corners aren't the best and some are a little scratched. I'm happy with it though. It's only temporary. I wanted to see how it looks before I drop $150-200 on good tint. I don't expect it to last long before it fades anyway.
I still have to do the back window. I probably won't do the fronts because it's illegal in NJ, I might try it though.

Next is a tune up and finish fixing my cooling issues. I havent really done anything as far as plugs, filters, fluids, etc... Since I got it. It's long over due.

I took the carpet out. It was nasty in some spots. The previous owner spilled oil as well and the jeep smelled a little

That's one good lookin' XJ man! I'm a sucker for blue and black. Are you going to bedline the floors?

Carpets all out.
Not sure if im gonna line the floors yet. I have a gallon of monstaliner in black for my cj5 build. I might use it and get tan for my cj5. If I do end up bed lining them, it will be after I cut out the half rusted metal an replace it.
I still need to do a tune up. My mileage is ****. Plugs are probably blacker than the sludge in the engine. Hopefully I can get to it tomorrow, I am supposed to be off from practice.

Got some lights. Painted one black and installed 100w bulbs. I'm doing the other one now. Driving at night sucks.

Lights are done. And I did a long overdue tune up. Plugs were pretty bad. New plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and oil and filter.

Trimmed my front fenders. I still need to do put some trim over the edge. I threw one of my 35" MTR/Ks to see how it looks on 1.75" of lift. It fits and I could turn the wheel. I would only have about an inch of up travel though. And a before picture to show the lip I trimmed off.

Did the rear cut and fold on the lower quarter panels. I also finished trimming the wheel wells from when I trimmed for the flat flares. Also got some all red rear tailights. I installed a factory tow hook too. Much better than going off of the shackle
