Found a rock at my brothers for a few poser shots.

I just realized that it's been almost a year since I've updated. I haven't really had the $$$ to put in to the Jeep like I had planned but I have some parts coming in the next few weeks to get her goin. Tonight I upgraded my interior and dash lights to LED. I did find out that my multipurpose switch isn't working because I can't turn on the interior lights. Here are a few pics:

My XRC-8 winch and winch plate came in today. I have to say that this is the first thing from quadratec\smittybilt that the packaging sucked. There was a hole in the winch plate box and the nuts and bolts are gone.

Decided to just go buy the bolts instead of waiting on them to get here. Here's my winch plate and winch ready to rock

I spent this weekend doing some surgery. We finished up after dark tonight so I'll add some more pics tomorrow.

While the wheels were drying, I started the JK turn signal install.

First, I taped and marked where I wanted them mounted and cut the whole out. The only issue I had was that I couldn't find my dremel tool so I spent a while trying to find it but then realized that I had a small cut off wheel that would do the job. Once I got that going it was an easy process. I was able to run the wires up through the inside part of that hole to connect the lights.


Next, I hooked em up, added a little RTV, and put them in place. I love the classic look this gives you.


Here are a few shots of the finished tube fenders also:

I had to repost my pictures.

Next up on the list is most likely to get a CB radio and fab up an overhead console to mount it.

This is coming along very nicely. I have an '02 as well with the same lift and tires as you have on yours with the exception of the size. Now that I look at your pics I see we have the same front bumper as well. haha. Great build though. I like reading over the ones where people have real budgets and aren't just pouring buckets of money into their rig immediately. Makes me feel like I'm not the only one short on $$$ all the time haha. How have you liked the lift/tire combination over the course of time you've had it? My lift has been on since the summer of 2013 and I'm thinking I need to replace at least a few of my joints already which is expected from what I've read on the forum.

Thanks man! I'm pleased with the lift/tire combo. I haven't had any real issues at all with the lift honestly. My main issue that I've been chasing for a while is driving performance on snow covered roads when I have to use 4hi. To use a racing term, because that's my background, the Jeep is really bad loose. If you are on the gas any at all it tries to spin out with you.

I know that problem well. I live in eastern Pennsylvania and in coal country the ice and snow seem to punish us constantly. The short wheel base Jeeps are always a treat in the bad weather. I still haven't found a proper combination of parts on any of my Jeeps that helps over anything else. Out of the two door Wranglers I own I think my '04 Rubicon was probably the easiest to drive in those conditions, but I have no idea why for sure. 33" Mastercraft Courser MT's and a 3" lift. My 2007 unlimited on 35" Hankook Dynapro's is great but I attribute that to the longer wheelbase. If you find something that works please share with us because I'm sure there are a lot of people who would benefit from that haha
