I have a few things sitting at the house that I will be installing soon. I have Rough Country adj. UCA/LCA arms waiting to be installed next weekend. I also have JCR stage 3 sliders and JCR rear quarter guards waiting to go in.

I am going to the JY next weekend and looking for:
97+ door seals, tan Leather ZJ seats, axles, and possibly v8 ZJ steering

I am also buying Rough Country's 2.2 shocks within the next week or to as well.

Thanks!

Found them at a swap meet. gave the guy $15 for them. the weird thing was, they were color matching to my jeep. if not 100%, close enough to were you can't even tell by looking at them.

Great looking build. I know what you mean about breaking off the upper shock bolts. I did that on mine too. Never thought to fab up new mounts.

Like the headliner. Was it just a printed fabric & spray adhesive to attach it to the old one? I know I've seen other people do it, but I never really thought about it till I saw yours.

i took the whole headliner out of the jeep. slowly pealed off the old headliner from the foam form. I used [B]3M headliner glue[B], it WORKS unlike a lot of the cheaper stuff. sprayed a bunch of glue on. then I used just a printed fabric and formed it. on the edges, i left about 3" extra all the way around and folded it over the sides. I let it sit out over night to make sure it dried nice. then installed. just take your time forming it and cutting out where you need to.

I run rough country garbage nitros. I put a metal sleeve where the bar pin would go so I could put a bolt through. I just ordered rough country 2.2's today. Can't wait to get them in

well my damn steering box went on me today. i have to replace that now. its the steering shaft seal coming off the column. i know i can replace the seal but im just getting a reman-ed one and saying F-it.

on a positive note, i started putting in my new 97+ door seals today. they are soooo much better. wish i would have done this cheap/easy mod a long time ago. finishing and getting pictures tomorrow. also hopefully doing my sliders if i have time.

I also picked up a 8.8 today! when i get some money going to re gear that to 4.56's right away.
