One thing that sucks about owning a jeep: there's so much aftermarket support that you always want to dump more money into it in mods

Been extremely busy lately!! I have kind of been having some major life changes happening! I got engaged couple months ago, and I found out couple weeks ago I'm going to be a daddy!!! Well, anyways, between all that and still trying to run my own business I haven't had much time to work on the ZJ! BUTTTT This past weekend I had some free time and this is what I got done:

-Painted the wheels matte black, used primer, rattle cans, and matte clear coat... I think they look AWESOME!
-Started to sand some of the hood, to get the peeling clear coat off...
-Soldered the dimming and headlight switch to stop the flickering of my dash lights
-Took out the VIC and tried to bring it back, and no luck on that! lol Either have to buy a new one or stick in a switch panel.
- Tried to diagnose why I do NOT have a working horn still lol used a test light and worked my way back to the fuse box under the hood, the horn "fuse" has power and works, the horn "relay" seems to not be getting any power to it... Don't know what I'm going to do about that yet..

Here are some pictures of the wheels!

So couple things I managed to get done, was I fixed the dimmer switch, bc the dash lights at night were flickering, so I soldered the points in the back and WA-LA FIXED.

Also, I went to walmart and bought two "driving/fog" lights and I had an extra piece of u-channel or strut bar w/e you choose to call it and mounted it to my "front bumper."

Here are some pics...

So did a couple more things to the jeep since I had a about 4-5 hours on saturday to get some things done to the jeep! (been busy!)

*New battery
*New battery terminals
*New power cable running from the alternator to the fuse box, original one was pretty ugly looking and finally failed/broke! Caused the check gauges light to come on and cause the alternator to kick on and off.
*Valve cover gasket replaced with blue felpro gasket,b/c was having a major leak through the original gasket. Managed to even BREAK one of the bolts when tightening the bolts by hand. but does NOT leak. If it starts leaking later on I may take it back off and take the bolt out and replace bolt, not worried about fixing that until it leaks again! But currently NO OIL LEAKS ON MY ZJ!!!

(original power cord is what is picture in the battery picture small dinky cord PO used for the alternator!!)
