Man, I have not updated this thread in a long time. Where to start?
I guess I will start with a list of recent mods and additions and will finish up with a few shots of my finished* trailer.
Lights. I recently got into the LED thing, and man, what a good choice that was. I have a friend who sells Seward Offroad and Marine Lights (Trailskinz.com
), and so I picked up a few sets for the XJ and the WK. Low cost, high output, lifetime warranty.
On the WK
To run those lights, I picked up a Prime4x4
switch panel. I was never fully happy with the finish I used on the one I built, and this one was on sale cheap. Great quality and superb service. I recommend buying from this guy.
Also picked up a set of 4 of his rock lights to add to what I have now. So bright, and great mounting options.
I modded my Detours tire carrier to include a Gerry Can holder for 5 gal of fuel. Added a cross brace and an upright.
I had originally mounted it like this, but it hit the Milk Jug, so I had to re-orient it.
AS it looks now.
Had a buddy make me a custom set of removable mud flaps for towing the trailer(s). Work really well, but until I get the new leafs installed I cannot use them again.
Installed a Specter air intake. Noisy, but I really like it.
Finally used some of the Quick Fist grips and mounted my shovel.
I also picked up a few other odds and ends for the XJ Recently. Like all of the parts to re-lift it! 4.5" RE Coils, JCR ACOS adjustable coil spacers (coils and spacers 1 year old, paid $120.00 for all delivered), 4.5" RC Full Leaf Packs, Cobra CB and a 4' Fire Stick. I still have to order an adjustable track bar and bracket, probably the IRO Double Shear unit, and then some upper adjustable control arms.
Trailer has taken up most of my time, and energy this year, but it has come a LONG way. Here is a couple of teaser pics.

Stay tuned for more, lots of re-lifting to take place soon!
