You have a very nice Jeep growing. I'm sure I've seen you in town. I have the 2006 Rubicon Khaki color with black teflon rims and the axe and shovel on the hood. Hope to wheel with you soon.

Cool, the shovel and axe on the hood give me away.

I'M BACK! After two months of solid studying I can't wait to have a life again. I'll hear the results on how I did on the promotional test in a couple days.

I found some cash and bought Savvy sliders, and corner armor, and the soft top brackets from Daveys Jeeps. I now have a full plate of Jeep projects!

I'm getting the garage ready and planning the order.

Build a hard top hoist.
Install the soft top.
Get the old sliders off and install Savvys.
Install the corner armor.
Pull out the carpet and roll bar padding.
Set up the cage kit.
U-pol the tub.
Front bumper build.

The PRP seat for the back showed up finally.



The savvy goodies.





Worked on installing the soft top this afternoon. I'll wrap it up in the morning. I did get some help from our future Jeeper.

I got some work done today. I cut some brackets out of L metal and mounted the little guys seat. I really like the PRP seat. It's very comfortable, and I can't wait to get a set for the front. I went a little nuts and bolted it through the tub with five grade 8 bolts on each side. I went through the existing seat support brackets and added fender washers. It won't be coming out!








It will be a little tight with two dogs, but it looks like it will work.

On to the corners





The newer Savvy corners will come with the needed cut out, but I had to make my own. The 05 and 06 hinges are not flat like the other years.



After a quick call to Gerald I marked out what I needed to cut. Drilled a hole in each corner and used my jig saw to cut it out.



After I got everything all together the tail lights acted funny. I check the bulbs and they where all good. I found the lights didn't seem to have a good ground. The old light guards I had for awhile had some rubber washers on them for some reason. Once I removed them I was back in business.



All done.

Thanks man! I can't wait to find the cash to get the front seats. The PRP is very comfortable, and built great! It's great having room for the little guy the dogs.
