put in the second coat of duplicolor truck bed coating (hope it holds up good 3 more coats to go), also contemplated doing a full roof chop and cage with wrangler type soft top.

I am contemplating doing that too. Maybe not chop but an exo cage. I have about 120ft of steel laying in my side yard so I need to find some good usage for it.

Swapped some 97 doors onto the MJ. Now I have power windows, locks, and mirrors. And no more wing windows. Spent today cleaning up the doors to rattle can them with some dark gray primer.

The primer is just temporary. I just didn't want to drive around a dark gray MJ with white doors. It'll get a new paint job in the next couple of months.

Got my Magnaflow high flow cat in the mail, re-ordered my Flowmaster Super44 off-road muffler(Summit is back ordered till the 28th now), ordered my RE adjustable UCA's, and RE "hack and tap" SYE, got the Smittybuilt adjustable tire deflaters, and hope to order my TNT Customs high clearance X-member, and a CV DS bought and installed before my trip to Redbird on the 6-7 next month.

The Cat was $74 shipped from Summit, and showed up on my front door about 24 hours after ordering it


I'm cutting my old cat off and taking it to the scrap yard, I'm fairly certain I can get about $125 for it, covering the cost of the new cat, and having it and the new muffler installed.

I never really understood how an old cat can be worth more than a new one. do the new ones not have precious metals in them?

I might go ahead and order a new one if i can make 25 or so bucks out of the deal.

Picked up a set of 5 spoke wheels for around $100. The kid sold his jeep out in Colorado for an audi wagon.....stupid if you ask me. I installed them on my 235's and put them on. I also put speakers in it, touched up the herculiner, and put the fender flares back on and a new battery.

Finally had a chance to weld on my UBEs test fit my front DS on the rear with the sye. Still need to mount and weld on the shock mounts but its getting closer to sitting on all 4s again. Damn working till 8 makes it hard to get **** done though.

My Dad gave me one for a 91 Caprice that he had laying around and just wanted gone, thought I could get $50-60 for it, took it to the scrap yard and got $150 for it! A replacement cat from Magnaflow for that engine is $73-79. I'm not complaining about the prices.
