hey john did you get those calipers and thornbirds at PnP? Thornbirds have always been one of my favorite tires just from looks alone. I went to PnP last friday and they were plentiful of ZJ's from the cash for clunkers deal...... so sad though.

How'd you do the led's behind the dash? I did it on my old Debali but I can't find the bulb types and the easiest way to dissassemble the dash to do it on my WJ. Any insight would be appreciated.

I see you have no front bumper and the plastic piece that goes around the steering colloum. You have a lot of work to do to get her clean again.
