wow i thought i was updating this looks like i have some catching up to do. in the winter the jeep just gets the top and doors put on and just gets used a a weekend driver when we go up north as we don't want to screw up the trails we snowmobile on.
since the last post i got the tj sound bar installed with some new kicker 6.5's, much better then the stock 5.25's that were in there
then when talking with some newly met people down the street we got on the conversations of jeeps and he began to tell me about his 90 that has a 2.5 lift and 33 boggers. he told me about some halfdors he bought brand new and used once and stuck them in his attic. so i asked him if he wanted to sell them and he told me $200 and there mine. well now i have a set of half Doors
i got them home and stripped them and they are ready to paint just need to make up some door panels.
this weekend i ripped out the old radio and got a new used in i got for doing a stereo install in a jeep i built for someone over the winter(more on that latter)
i forgot to take pictures of the new one but it is an older kenwood with the sirius module with lifetime membership. what a nightmare with the old wiring. some one put the old stereo and tapped into the stock wiring with just twisted wires and tape so i went trough and crimped and heatshrinked all the wires and also took out a bunch of unused wires.
i am going to start on a console that will hold an 8' sub the next time i go up.
now the big news. i picked a hf 12k winch for $299.99 on-sale. i know it is cheap but if it lasts a few years i will be happy. i figure with it being 12k i will not be putting a lot of load on it.
i took the bumper off an i am going to add another layer to the top for strength and also add the fair lead mount.
now i was mentioning i built a jeep for someone. in November someone came in our shop and had just bought there kid a 1997 tj with a lot of rust. he wanted to paint it silver, fix the rust, put a lift on, do a stereo, and a bumper. but he wanted it done for Christmas as it was a gift. so i turned all attention to this jeep, we ended up getting it all done in time and they were very happy with the result. i made out on the deal as i got to keep all the old stereo that i pulled out of the jeep as well as get paid.
since this picture it has since got a rc 3.5 lift and a set of 33x12.5 duratracs. thought i did like this jeep i like my yj better.
