^ haha, I know exactly what you mean. I cleaned on the jeep Sunday when we got back and it still looked like crap Monday so I cleaned it some more, but still worth it. You can't beat that Rustoleum bed liner for the ease of use and cost. Look forward to seeing the metalclocks and corners on your jeep. Why you selling the snorkel? I got a Cobra 29 CB through a friend and took your advise and stopped by Pilot. They had everything I need to do the install tonight, thanks for the heads up.

Because the metalcloaks are full fender replacements the inner fender wont accept the intake for the snorkel so I'm going to sell it and build a PVC "Hummer style" snorkel that comes out of the cowl

Oh, that makes since. Would your snorkel work on the 2.5L?

Haha, he kept saying he wanted to leave the floormat in because he wasn't done exfoliating. But that was coming from a guy who owns a Polaris Ranger, and not a Jeep.

The CAI apparatus that's required to use the snorkel is set up to connect to the 4.0 throttle body which is in a different location so no I don't believe it will.

I will be taking my time on the Monstaliner because I only want to do it once. One of the benefits of the jeep not being my DD, plus I only ever get an hour or two at a time to mess with the jeep.

That sucks, I like the way your jeep sounds with that Volant setup. Someone is going to get a good deal.

Well I had alittle time yesterday to mess with Jeep. Received the Terraflex spare tire adapter which is mainly designed to lift the stock location on the tailgate to fit larger tires. I had bought it because it has both TJ and JK bolt pattern, The problem is I think it sits to high now. It is nice to have the spare on the jeep rather than taking up space in the garage though.


Also started on the install of a Cobra 29 WXNWST. The radio was free and I have about $70 in wiring, antenna etc. so I'm staying with the keep it cheap theme for this build.

And I like the radio. CB's are such a great tool to have in the Jeep, plus they're just FUN to use.

How do you even see past that tire now? Although, granted, with tires as big as yours, they'll block your vision regardless...

Trying to figure out where I want the CB mounted in the the jeep. Leaning toward putting it overhead on a smittybilt gear mount. I've settled for the antenna off the driver side of the rear bumper.

Yeah the spare tire is bothering me, it is only a 33" but looks like a 37" tire the way it sits. I'll be doing something different with it at some point if for no other reason than to save so MPG's. I imagine it is going to act like a parachute on the back that high. Plus now I really need side mirrors

Well the pro to putting it overhead is that the speaker is right up there near your head when you're wheeling, the Jeep people I've wheeled with say it's easier to hear that way. I have mine mounted under the dash, I like that it's not really visible, but then again, CB's aren't really a hot-ticket item for people to take...

Haha yeah, I imagine it'd blow you around a little bit on the freeway and such. Plus it'd look a little more buttoned up if it was lower, I think.

great radio you got there, cant believe you got it free. Its nice to have the weather band, but im a techy, and I like listening to monotone weather talk.

Ill stop there before I bore the thread with endless CB talk.
