I had to replace my heater core and I wasn't about to go spend $1,000 in labor for someone to do it.











Now remember I'm just trying to catch up on my build. I moved to Colorado so that's why I haven't been on here.

So I got to work, decided to bed line the whole thing.



I didn't through down any new medal but I did make it work with medal tape, after cleaning up really good first of corase. I did it to the top and the bottom.

Just picked up some Jeep Rubicon wheels the moab ones, 5 wheels and tires for $475. They are so hard to find as far as craiglist goes and ordering them brand new would have been $400 a wheel.

They fit actually pretty nice, almost like stock. I've been happy with them.

Thanks man! It's been quite the adventure. Over the year I've had it, its been awesome working on it and wheeling it. I've got alot more to do. But first I need to get a DD because the Jeep is my DD so before I tear into it more than ever I want to hae something that will get me to work. I'll post my latest mod in just a second.

My new wheels



The tire size is 285/75r16 so basically a 32x12r16 gave my Jeep a little bit of lift.

32's are way better. It fits the lift. Amazing what a tire size bigger will do.

Thanks man! Lately I've been using it alot, helping friends move and carrying gear for offroading. I do like the lights on the roof rack though. I carry my spare up there and that can get annoying considering I cant fit it in the garage without taking it off.
