Ordered a Tom Woods SYE and CV rear ds. No telling when they will get installed, but I couldn't pass up on the opportunity. The DS might need to be modified since I am only going to be running 2" of suspension lift, but I'll take care of that when it's time.
For now, one more thing off the check list.
Also, let me know before you install. If love to come watch and learn before I do mine.

These. Sorry for the double post. The first reply was on my mobile.
Ahhh! No, that was my parking garage off Eldridge and Memorial when I was in the Energy Corridor. (I don't miss that commute!!!!!)
I am now out on the north west side of Katy, almost to Brookshire/Pattison.
...and that was the top I bought for $75 and sold for a couple hundred to help fund the Trektop NX.
Those windshield guards will be getting these added, as well as something else fun. More to come on that later.
It's also time to add some rear corner armor. I am making good progress on my rocker guards, but I want the corner armor in so I precisely mount the rockers.
I decided to go with a standard location and opening for the wheel well. At some point, I would expect to do some sort of stretch, but I would rather not wait until then to get corner armor (made for a stretch). At that time, I can either modify these to facilitate a stretch, or sell them and start over.
Thanks! I made another purchase, but I'll wait til the stuff gets here to show

I thought it was going to be a Tom Woods, so when it came in as not TW, I called and they said they send them out as either....depending on supply at the time and model/version you're ordering.
They feel the parts are equal and it's all warrantied through RC, so I'm not worried about it.
Stopped by Best Buy this evening. I've been keeping an eye on the previous year Alpine amps. The new models have been out for a little while now and the previous year model has been on sale. I need/wanted a new sub amp and the MRP-M500 is just the ticket. I picked it up for $150 out the door with 4-year warranty. Not that it is necessary at all, but this stays in my Jeep's Alpine family....Alpine headunit, Alpine Power Pack 4-channel amp. This perfectly matches my JL Audio 10w0v2 sub (300w RMS).
I will be working up an under-the-steering column mount for it.
*In case anyone is in the market, the 4-channel Alpine V-Power (MRP-M300 I think) is on clearance for $130. Hard to beat the prices on these. Great amps for super cheap....and they are small.
Since the Jeep will be in and out of commission, I wanted to be able to easily move it around the garage to work on it. While I have a 3-car garage and the Jeep has it's own space, sometimes it's just nice to work on it in the middle of the garage.
So I picked up some wheel dollies from Harbor Freight. Each one is good for 1500 lbs, and the Jeeps moves around the garage with ease. It's pretty cool to be able to turn the Jeep in all directions if needed, and shove it all the way to one side if I need it out of the way. Ideally it won't be parked for too long, but I have a lot of projects to get moving on.
