I've already got some plans....

The stock headlights suck.

The front bumper is far too wide for my tastes. Looking at doing a clean, factory-look stubby.

The windows could use a light tint to match the hardtop glass.

I think 255/80r17's would be perfect under it. That's a narrow, tall 33 that would work well with the factory 17" wheels and their backspacing. It's staying @ stock height. The only problem is that size is only available in KM2's and I'd like her to have an AT tread. It's got 3.21 gears right now and it'll need 4.10's with anything bigger. She'll tow the boat nicely with that combo as well.

We both agree those wheels would look great in black with some bigger rubber wrapped around them. I'm thinking Plastidip in case we want to go back to factory.

But I love this thing. We're taking it downtown today to hang out and tailgate before the game.....which we're going to. Got seats right in front of Reggie Wayne's family. Let's hope he trumps Champ Bailey today.

As for the TJ, it's been down for some R&R. I never stripped the interior to give it a good cleaning after last year's project so I did that, sealed all of the seams, cleaned up the fuel cell plumbing, and laid down some fresh liner. While at it, I stripped down the roll bar back to stock and cleaned it up. I'm not happy with how I addressed it so I'll start over in the spring. Until then, I'll enjoy the perfect door fitment and seal allowed by the factory adjustable A-B bars.

As for the fuel cell plumbing, the factory round drain plugs use a 1.25" hole. I measured where I'd like two new holes and drilled with a hole saw then I cut out the middle of two rubber drain plugs and ran them over the fuel and vent hoses with appropriately sized drill bits to make for a nice seal. For the wiring connector, I used an existing oval drain plug and cut it out just enough to fit the wires through. The connector sits inside the plug perfectly. All in all, it looks super clean and is sealed.
