Love your WJ!

I agree 100% on the chrome grille inserts, and if you decide to sell your headlights, let me no!

forgot to throwin some pics of the sliders. I bought some JCR stage II's. They are BEEFY and a PITA to install....all i had at the house at the time was a littlw bottle jack. balancing these on that little jack to do the install was quite difficult but I got it done and am very pleased with how they look as well as how they were designed. They should take anything I can throw at them

finally pulled the trigger on Kevins OffRoad Clayton specific TC skid...although its so freaking big its almost a belly skid. Man!!!! wht a PITA. I broke 6!!! drill bits trying to putthat thing on. It is 60lbs of 1/4'' steel. I have no worries now about putting the full weight of the jeep on it. This was mid install...i havnt taken final pics yet. Once it got it on it was rattling on th Cat. I had to take it back down and wrap the Cat in exhaust wrap to keep it from hitting metal on metal. It sounded terrible to the point it was kind of embarassing.

also did the rear sway bar delete in prep for the BTF cover and sold my IRO rear links. I can barely notice the difference on road but it really lets that rear 4-link flex like it should

The wife hated the look of the Jeep with the bumper cover off. I was hoping she would hate it so much shedbreak down and buy me an LSR. it almost worked! had it not been for school loans, oh well. maybe next year. Once her NP masters at Vandy is done she can buy me all sorts of Jeep stuff. Anyways, to keep her happy and the money flowing I cut the bumper up to match the fenders. I also cut our the Fog light holders. I had taken the washer bottle out a while back. I have a ZJ one in the garage to need to get stuffed in there.

thanks...it was alot of work to get the leather back looking right but I am glad I did it. its isnt something you see done often. And yes, i was doing some other work on the tracbar during those pics. i got it back tight. thanks for the heads up though
