Thanks! I'm pretty sure my first post here was the awesome "what do you guys think about chrome grills?" I have learned a ton so far. Glad I found the search button. It is fun out here. It can be a PITA finding a legal spot to wheel, but there are some great places. The grass is always greener someplace else though. I was looking at your build thread the other day, and thought you had some great spots to wheel. I'm planning on Moab in two summers.

I'm outside of Eugene. I work in the city, but I can't stand all the hippies or the homeless person on every corner with a sign so I moved out by the rednecks.

I'm just across river from Portland in Vancouver. and it sucks because there is nowhere legally to wheel in Vancouver, last time i went out guy i was with got 1500 fine for offroading. But don't mind driving out to browns camp it is a great place.

Nope!!! the bastards look for every thing to bust him. So know i only go up when it is snowing and no cop would dare to go So it is illegal to off-road anywhere in Clark county
Edit: he said he got it down to 800.

Thank you!

So I played around today. Nothing great that's for sure. I have found to many "deals" on ebay. I picked up some 5 1/4 sony speakers for cheap. I threw them in the sound pods, and in the front using adapters I found on EBAY as well. They sound a ton better then stock. I used the stock grill covers in the sound pods so you can't tell they are there.


I also picked this up. I plan on getting rid of the center console when I do the u-pol and cage. I'm going to mount this under the new PRP seat that's going in the back for the little guy.



I know this is kinda lame, but I did it anyway. I think the SPORT decal is lame so I pulled it off. Then I replaced the JEEP decal.

Before



After





I got an email from Zach at A to Z fab, and my cage kit is on the way. Fed Ex shows it should be here Sat.

The FedEx guy was a whiny little B, but my cage kit is here.



I was dissappointed that the A to Z shipping guy thought it was cool to throw all his packing trash in the box. I sure hope the kit is quality. I have read a few bad builds.

The starter plate for a new front bumper.



U-Pol kit from TP tools. (best price)




Waiting for the PRP seat still. After looking around on-line I think I am going to buy some seat sliders and build the brackets. When my little guy is not with me I will be able to move the seat forward a few inches for more cargo room.


This stuff is coming together, and I need to study for a promotional exam on May 3rd. My days are full for now. When I'm not on-duty I'm studying 4-6 hours and that's only going to get worse. So not much will happen till the test is over. The good news is if and when I promote that's more Jeep money!
