So it's been a while and I have not done anything to my jeep at all because in the last year I made no money! But I am a working man now, and the first job was to replace my sagging headliner. I decided to do it myself. Never again. I've decided I hate any kind of upholstery work haha. But it turned out fine and no more sagging! Mission accomplished. Next up is an $800 a/c evaporator replacement (no time to tackle on my own cause of work :/ ) and new tires in the future.

The Old (sagged into my head)


Out


Scraping off the foam


Foam removed


Fully replaced!

Where did you get your exhaust and is it 2.25 or 2.5" piping?

I ordered it from Summit Racing, and the pipe is 2.25" with a 2.5" tip.

Recent update: Got new tires today! They are Cooper Discover ATP, which turns out to only be offered at Discount Tire. They are much quieter and lighter than the Treadwright re-treads I had on before. I've only got a few miles on them, but they drive nice and corner well too. I'll let you know how they do off road, but I already know they will be fine for my occasional excursions. I sized up a smidge to 265/75 r16 Here's a few pics:







Also replaced the interior bulbs with LEDs. Most came from eBay, but I had to get the cargo bay light from a special LED store.

The tires were great. I put about 10,000 miles on them (including a trip to Colorado to do some trails out there) and had zero issues. I'd recommend them if you want a road-friendly yet good looking tire.

Unfortunately, I got hit about a month ago and the Jeep totaled. I've since sold it

Some pics below:

Well folks, this is the end of my Jeeping for the moment. I was hit and the XJ totaled. It was sort of an aggravating accident because it involved 3 cars, and the instigating driver left the scene. I don't have uninsured motorist coverage, either. I decided to sell it to insurance because I didn't want to pay out of pocket to fix it, and I don't have the means to part it out or build it into a trail rig at the moment. I bought an 05 Mazda 6 Wagon to get me by in the meantime. I'll still hang around the forms, and I hope to have another Jeep sometime in the future.
