got the CB on ebay for 20 bucks hsipped, and i bought the antenna and cable from Frys (www.outpost.com) for 10 bucks (antenna) and 7.50 (cable) and 5 bucks for the mount. total project cost was around 50 bucks when i bought the spring for it.

and thanks for the compliments. i'm sorry i dont know anymore about the rims. just that they are american racing

Well, most recent development:


Got tired of seeing this every time i went out to the jeep. (it had been parked in that spot for about 10 hours at this point....thats a good leak)


so i got me a new one of these



, and installed it after a long, drawn out process, its finally in. Yesterday was the first day in 2 months i went out to the jeep and there was no puddle under it.

140 for the box. i had to buy a buncha random tools (read: 1 5/16th socker that was 3/4ths drive, so i needed a 3/4ths drive bar too)

over all project cost was probably about 200-220?

hell, still alot cheaper than taking it somewhere, plus i learned alot.

and no, no durango one, cheapest one i could find here was 220 bucks.

yup, whole interior is lined with Herculiner. only spot it hasnt held up is the little footmn loops in the back of the bed. thats because i always rest a steel tool box on them, and the top of the loops rubbed off a bit. i should have drlled them out.
