Mag lite & CB (auxiliary speaker) are mounted. Ignore the cables; I have yet to route them inconspicuously.

Another free project, since I took everything from my old Jeep.

Picked up a new Pioneer radio @ Wally World - $90.

Ordered an Advance Adapters 231 linkage bracket (tired of rattles, & a body lift could be in the future) - $34.95

And, we needed some grab handles - $8.95

That puts my Total to date @ $830.86

I finally found a good deal on a sailcloth top from an '02 TJ.

Picked it up for $200, and sold the old, noisy top for $150.

That equals a good deal.

It didn't seem that deep...

Actually, these are the ATG tires from Treadwright. Their Guard Dog tires are the copies of the MT/R.

I am happy with the treadwear. Airing down has never been an issue. I run 28psi on a daily basis, 25psi when heading into the local mountains, and 20psi when I anticipate some rocks.

I saw you have 32" Treadwrights... I'm trying to find 32x11.5r15 ATGs on the site and can't. Did you get a metric size? Or did they discontinue that size...

BTW, very nice Jeep. I envy how you keep a very detailed record of everything, and stay within the budget

Their 31" M/T Guard Dogs actually measure 32"... So I technically have 31" tires.

def a good start! just a little tid bit... on the door straps, if yours are getting warn or you simply dont want them to open as far, you can just twist em! if i let mine open all the way the door hits my mirrors, put a couple twists in it and slip it back on the stud, good to go!
