Here is the link I found of someone talking about your light bar. Congratulations, the internet thinks you're famous.

Would any of you guys run "NORTH SHORE JEEPS" banners on your windshields if I looked into ordering them? Not sure if I'd want to do that instead of the GO PREPARED one. Cost would probably be ~$15-20.

Coil spacers came yesterday and will be installed tomorrow.

NOVAK comes tomorrow and will be installed next Wednesday.

Next Thursday, SaxMan 2003x and I (anyone else???) are headed up to NH to wheel.




As far as updates, I replaced a broken switch in my electrical switchbox that had given out. While I was there and had it all open, I wired an old typical red switch still in my dashboard by the cigarette lighter to be powered by one of the switches in the box. Long story short, when switch #4 (strobe LEDs) is turned on, power is sent to the red switch allowing it to be turned on. It is then wired to the strobes as well as the source of voltage to change the pattern. That way it didn't take up an extra switch in the top-mounted control box, but still allows me to change their program. It was a nuisance, as the wiring is tight but I made it work and am happy with it.

Also took off the GO PREPARED banner from my windshield to replace it with another one. Not sure if I will or not, but I do believe the TJ looks lacking without it.

Oh and Steph wanted to take a picture in the Jeep for some reason, so that's here too.

Went over 2003x's house today and added the spacers to the front coils to level the Jeep out. Had a relatively easy time installing them, did both sides in under 2 hours after getting the spring/strut compressor from AutoZone to help mash those stupid damn coils into position. Put the spacers on, new bumpstops in, and called it a day.. Ended up fighting the passenger side as the compressor bolt head was a pain and was in a terrible location, and I had to loosen the thing from full compression with a non-ratcheting, standard style, open ended wrench. What a pain. Anyway, TJ sits level now and I'm happy with it. Big thanks to Pat for the assist.

Novak shifter also came today, albeit in a banged up box. Gerald from Savvy said if anything was wrong with the product to send it back and he'd send me another. All in all, good service from the company. 4 day shipping, 10% discount from JeepForum, and good communication.

"Before" measurements were as follows (between tire and flare). After measurements are even around.
Driver Front - 4.5"
Driver Rear - 6"
Passenger Front - 4.5"
Passenger Rear - 6.75"

New reverse lights!

Installed some aux reverse lights, as the stock ones simply don't cut it when they're 4' off the ground. Got the lights from Wal-Mart for $14.99, 2x55 watt "driving beam" as they didn't have fog. I used the stock gas tank skid mounting bolts in the rear to mount the brackets to, so there was no additional drilling required. Simple 12-2 wire run from my aux electrical system in the engine bay, and it was ready to go. I'll post a "night time" picture tonight.

They're small enough (and tucked in under the bumper/gas tank) enough that even at an extreme angle, they'd never get ripped off on a trail.
