The Edelbrock Off-Road carb kit showed up today and had that put in and tuned. We'll see how she does off camber and such this weekend at the 'fest.
ALSO this just showed up about 15 minutes ago! Guess in the next few weeks I will be prepping and putting down some Monstaliner in the tub and will redo the hood going up into the windshield. Should look really tight once the yellow is laid down with it and the OEM striping.
jawasan what did you do for a latch on your tailgate on the pass. side been thinking about doing the same also does it rattle at all
I used the existing hinge as a latch itself. I will post up some more pictures...I finally got around to attaching the cables and finishing it off. One of the most useful things I have done to 'er.

Here are a couple close-ups. I did cut off some of the lower hinge tab so when closing it goes in easy....the swing/arch will cause it to rub when closing and opening, so I trimmed it. The drop in pin works fine since I am in and out of the tailgate area OFTEN and I do have a t-handle hitch lock that fits perfectly and is not too big and gaudy.
....haven't been updating much but I've gotten a few more things done, or for, the Jeep.
Picked up a Spider Shade at Jeepfest. Also ordered "A to Z" Rock Sliders with side tubes, already shipped and should be here after Thanksgiving...also after "turkey day" I'm ordering the Hoop/Stinger combo PLUS the front part of the cage kit from them. I've heard nothing BUT GOOD about this fab shop, so might as well just get it all from the same "guy" and show some support.
...and lastly, hit up Monstaliner the other night and picked out a 2 gal kit for the exterior. "Don't Scream at Me" Yellow.
Sadly when I went to get ready to the mother-in-law's Cherokee tub I noticed that the free qt. of Chassis Saver was not put in the box....never really felt the need to check the box when it arrived. I will wait to do her tub until Eric can send it since she definitely has rust issues.
Hopefully my order will have it included cause there is no way in hell I can share my stash with her! Get your own lady! lol
Anyhow....will post up pics as I progress of course. Have a great Thanksgiving holiday everyone.
