I like the lights where they are. Im not a fan of light bars and the trails around here are tight and low, probably rip em off up top. I use em on the road anyway. lots of deer around me.


Speakers are in the stock "sound bar". Its just a piece of plactic that mounts underneth the headliner. You can see it in the first pic. (the one with the headliner ripped out).


And for the undercoating I just used a couple of cans of 3M rubberized undercoating. Its pretty good stuff for the price. (10.00 a can) Ive used it on quite a few of my Jeeps over the years and its always held up well for me. Duplicolor and a couple others make it for about half the price, but dont waste your $$$. Preped by using wire wheels on a drill.

Thanx!! Ive been busy on the old girl. My favorite season for wheelin is coming up and I have some club rides comin up. Some are quite a ways away so I figured I'd better get her ready. I resealed my TC. when I put the SYE in it didnt seal very well so I finnally got that taken care of. I rebuilt my front driveshaft with all new U-joints and centering ball. Also put new front axle U-joints (all non greasable spicers). And Im upgrading my tie rod and TRE with ones for a V8 ZJ. MUCH stronger than stock! Its a solid piece of steel, not like that hollow piece of crap that came on it from the factory. Also changed my dif oils front and rear.

I get some pics up this weekend. Havent installed the steering yet.

Theres a link for the tire carrier somewhere in this thread. Its not currently available though. Not sure why. He might just be backordered to much. They are made in just a 1or2 man shop. Great guy though. Worth the wait. And the speakers are stock size.

So I got the new tie rod installed...


New TRE compared to old




Installed. (Note the shiny new U-joint )





While I was under there I realized the heim on my trac bar was shot so I oredered a new one. Also ordered some JKS disconnects. The ones that I got on there are rusted to hell and the pins that mount the axle are split and loose. Theyve been rattling like hell and drivin me nuts... So thets next weekends project

Damn man, you have a great looking XJ. I wanted my XJ to look just like yours but I sold out and built a TJ instead, haha. The 33's are perfect for your amount of lift an the flares. I love the way it looks!

Looks good. I think the DC1's look really good all black. How are the Duratracs? Gonna get some in the 235 flavor when I get the money.

So it actually quit raining for a couple hours today So I gave her a bath and decided to post an update...

Couple of new mods.
Scored a new CB...



And mount/antaneee..



Its important that your dog is the same color as your Jeep!



And a pic of my ghetto Harbor Freight trailer. Dont knock it. Ive put it through hell and its never given me a problem!



But the good news is I FINALLY got done with school and got a new job making more money than I can count! Theres gonna be some serious modifications coming soon, but first I wanna get some things done to the house. The first thing Ill be saving saving my pennies for will be a long arm upgrade? Not sure which route Im gonna go yet. Im thinkin 4 link. (the 3 links just dont seem right to me). As of right now Im leanin towards Claytons. but Im not really diggin the price.


Any suggestions?
