Installed a hurst 'T' handle shift knob and a fire extinguisher to the cab...everyone thinks it's funny I carry a fire extinguisher but i've had to use one about 5 times in the past 2 years and you never remember where they are...good to have


Installed a CB rack and put my switches for the 2 sets of lights on the front, and a power switch for my scanner on it, along with my scanner...




Installed a REBB with Skyjacker Hydro 7000 shocks from 4wheelcustoms.com!!!
Top on...


top off...



top and doors off...

I put a full size spare tire on the back and my rear seat back in and it brought the back end down a little bit...The lift has been in for a couple weeks now and has settled very nicely...little lower in the back.

you should throw on a lift and some 33's, although it looks pretty sweet now. Maybe a high lift jack because that bottle jack isnt getting you anywhere

The lady i bought it from ordered it from the factory...she wanted every option in the Sport category except the 6cyl, dana 44, and cruise control...the best options! But it's ok...it actually SAYS sport on the paperwork....but its setup like an SE - - - > 4cyl, 4:10 gears, dana 35...i thought it was unusual! So i though id add it!

Thread moved.

If you need a moderator, its much easier and more effective to send a PM rather than yelling it out in a thread because we do not read all the threads on here.

thanks wheelin!

Yeah Im thinkin about 33x10.5 like ur setup DogBlue. Its up in the air right now though. I just got my "stimulate the economy" check and had plans for the jeep but I picked up 2 1977 vespas mopeds to restore and im gettin another yellow lab this afternoon! My guess is I'll end up spending the check on puppy chow...
