I had never seen the rear bumper like that either.. but I like it too! and yes those tires hum like no other! but for the moment I actually have the terra grapplers back on instead of the mud grapplers.. just until I get extended bump stops so I don't ruin a fender

first trails the jeep has ever seen(as far as I know) with the UTAH Jeep Crew and like 100 other jeeps! Didn't take many pictures but it was a good time. This was the February social up 5 mile. I made it to Wayne's world with no problem but it was to wet to even get up the bypass so I called it a day.

Installed a CB radio and a PA speaker just for fun! Still haven't tuned the antenna though. I've never even touched a CB radio before this and was pretty easy to install.. I'll have to take some of the pics of how I cut everything to make it fit. It's like the cubby hole was designed for a CB..

The last picture of what the cubby hole used to look like.... well sort of its my wife's version ha.

yes... I know I have leather/heated seats/pedal adjust/wood trim.. and my wife doesn't ha

yesterday I installed new yokes and a Tom woods front drive shaft.. today I adjusted my caster/pinion angles to get rid of a slight vibration. and pulled out my coil spring retainer from the passenger side front spring because it was just sitting inside the spring because the bolt won't hold it in. solutions?

I just bought stickers and placed them where I wanted them... then applied several coats of VHT nite shades(used a hair dryer between each coat to ensure it was dry before the next coat) then when I got the tint that I wanted.. I used a razor to slowly pry the stickers off.

I didnt clear coat them due to it being illegal to tint tail lights here in Utah... that way if I get a "fix it" ticket I can just clean the tint off

I have also Installed some halo/projector style fog lights since my old lights were broken... the 31.6" tires on my 3" lift and blown shocks hit/broke the bulbs. I wired the halo's to run with the center running light that's between the blinkers. Cheap and easy to do.. cheaper that just replacing with oem fogs..

I wish we had places like that around here. I was just looking for a place to take my Jeep today, and found the closest "trails" to be 2 hours away...
