Working on the WJ again... doing the wishbone thing... replacing both outer upper bushings... little mod on center ball joint.. took it out checked it, nice and smooth so I clean old grease out and drilled small hole then drilled and tapped to install a zerk. Now my wishbone is Greasy.

Installed antenna mount and radio... still need to find better route for wires... antenna mount is temp till I get bumpers built then it will mount on rear bumper.. Cobra 29 LTD (Original 29 series) and 5' FireStick. Used RG58 because I have spool of it.. will change over to RG58 when I find one I like.
