Finished the Raptor liner. Just waiting for it to dry now. I think it came out good. Also did the section of the door that I had to repair as well.

Looks great!

I still need to do my tub. I have been waiting until i get my floor plates for my cage welded in. LOL. Tub liner was my first mod on my last jeep. Probably the last mod on this one.

Thanks! I was on a time crunch for this so I didn't take off everything like I should have but I was working solo, which prevented me from the larger items...i.e. rack, hardtop, cage. Taped off all those associated bolts though so I can still do it later since I have an extra bottle left over. I won't have a garage in Sitka, AK so I have to get all these larger jobs done beforehand.

All put back together now. The driver's side seat, front left bolt snapped but there was enough thread left surprisingly enough so I was able to re-use it. That should be the last of the major build items before the move.....famous last words.

Haven't done much lately, just nickel dime things, door looks, etc. Had bought this nice wiring harness for the WK trailer setup and went to get the uhaul only to find the harness was bad. Went to Autozone and bought all the stuff and re-wired it from scratch. After that I went back and got the u-haul auto transport for the move to Sitka. The next couple weeks are going to be long....

Didn't have time to check it thoroughly, so I just ripped it out and rewired it myself. As far as brand, I don't know it was off of Quadratec.

Made it to Sitka and all settled in. Definitely a small town but still nice. Hope I can find a couple places to use the jeep in the woods though I hear there's not much in the way of off-roading unfortunately.

Thanks! Life happens. I have several things I need to get done on her but other things are more pressing at the moment. Need to order and replace the exhaust manifold, pinion seal on the front axle, order a Aussie locker for the front as well, install the new motor mounts I got awhile back and re-torque all the suspension items from all the initials when I swapped them. That's just the short list too, but I have so many things to do and setup here first. Yours is coming along nicely and you've done a lot, but we all need breaks from the grind at some point. Keep up the good fight!

Ordered new exhaust headers to replace the cracked one I currently have. Should be in soon so that will give me an excuse for a weekend of wrenching since I have a few other things I've been neglecting here recently.
