So it hasn't been a huge success so far this weekend trying to find time to work on the jeep. But did manage to get the new switches set into the stock bezel.



Turned out really nice, now to get them wired up along with the winch.

So got alittle done tonight. Fitted the winch plate and managed to keep the sway bar cover in place, just had to make a some modifications to it. My sway bar is rusted and looks like a$$ so I wanted to keep the cover on. Long term goal is to replace with antirock.



Then removed the plate and mounted the winch on it, then reinstalled onto the bumper. It makes the jeep look official



Also had developed a very slight ticking coming from the engine bay and decided an oil change was in order. So dropped 4 quarts of this stuff in and it purrs again. As much as I want to replace the little 4cyl I can't help but be impressed by how well it runs with 166,000 miles on it.


Also gathered up a bunch more crap laying around in the garage to sell and turn into more Jeep parts. Have the JKS adj. rear track bar to go in tomm. Then I think I'm going to do the Monstaliner kit and get the interior in shape.

So had a chance to meet up with a few local Jeep club guys on Sunday in east Bonita and had an absolute blast.









Ended up having to go through a pretty deep hole, and almost made it. Probably could have gave it hell and came out but got tired of eating mud pretty quick. Will have doors on next time


My new favorite picture of the heep.


Ended up with mud everywhere, but worth it.

Wow looks like you guys had fun. Nice mud coating in the bottom of the Jeep.

If you go for the Monstaliner, you won't regret it. That stuff is radical.

The way I see it, a Jeep is like sex-when it's good it's terrific, and when it's bad it's still pretty good!

The mud coating was almost white when dried and was a real PITA to get clean. I saw your Monstaliner job and was very impressed, will be following your process to a tee looking for the same results. By the way enjoyed all the pictures from your recent wheelin trip.

Thank You, and I love the Rustoleum Bed Liner spray, just haven't figured out a good way to wash those parts of the jeep yet.

Thanks, we had a great time. And thanks x2!! It's all about prep work. That's 95% of painting after all.

Thats a TON of mud. It looks pretty awesome dried on the side of the Jeep though. By the way, what kind of LED lights are those? I bought some off ebay, and they look exactly the same, the white LED's that light up red...well, these:

HERE

And if they're the same, or close to, I was wondering how you like them?

I have a 4 banger in my jeep, and with 200,000 on it it still runs great. I want to go to a 4.6 inline stroker, but its hard to rip out the 4 when it so dependable.

Yep same ones, they work great, get alot of complements and are very bright. Just have to figure out reverse lights yet.

I have been using a hand brush I use on the boat and it works well for regular cleaning but not so great to get the mud stain off. Will have to try the large more stiff bristle brush i guess.

I'm with you on the little 4 banger just keeps impressing me, except on the highway. I had the floor plugs out but had floor mats in which were blocking the holes. Lifted them after the picture and most drained right out.

Looks familiar


I spent all Monday cleaning mine and got a nice sun burn

Your build is looking awesome I just read through the whole thing... I'll be buying that bed liner for my Metalcloaks and corners I can't believe how nice it looks on your rig, the pictures just don't do it justice.
