I've got to do a blend door fix on my 02 dub. How hard was it getting the dash off? is there a write up online that you followed?

It was just time consuming. Otherwise real easy. I followed: http://www.wjjeeps.com/hvac_ip_remove.htm

Takes about 4-5 hours to remove and it went in even faster. Have an extra set of hands around to help pull the dash out and put it in.

I like how you cut your front bumper. I was going to trim it like that or take it off all together....
I saw a ZJ build thread where a guy attached his hi-lift jack to the front where his bumper used to be.

Thanks. I've always rocked my Jeeps with no front bumper until I bought an after market. I was feeling daring and liked how it turned out just chopping the bottom half on this one.

Had to get rid of the lights on the bumper because there was no more stability left in it after cutting it. So if you plan on chopping it like mine, be prepared to make some reinforcements to run your lighting.

I bought a small tire inflator last week to air up after hitting the trails. I was going to just wait and save for an OBA set up, but that's pretty far down the line and this thing was on sale for $20, originally $50, and I couldn't pass it up. It beats dumping change into a air compressor on the way home. It's a Masterflow MP-140, bought at Pep Boys Auto.

Nice little carrying case for compressor and hose



Finally put the rear 12v to good use



Used my ARB EZ Deflator and aired down to my normal 15PSI that I run on the trail. I run 32PSI on the street



Timed, from 15PSI to 32PSI it takes 6 minutes per tire. The compressor gets pretty hot, along with the 12v plug. I'm not too worried about it though, we'll see how long it holds up.

Well, some ***hole decided he didn't like me laying on my horn after cutting me off in the rain and almost causing a wreck. Threw something at the front of my Jeep and put some chips on my fender. Any suggestions on how to fix this so it's invisible?

I can't win. Another guy hit my Jeep last night. Police report filed and waiting on insurance. Hopefully the insurance check can buy me a tactical group rear tire carrier!

Not too much going on, did an oil change and tire rotation. Replaced my wipers with some Bosch Marathons. While I was at it, I painted the arms with some flat black fusion and the trim piece above the hood with some Duplicolor trim paint.

I need to do the same thing on mine. My wiper arms look terrible and I'm sure it would look 100% better if all that were black again. Gonna have to wait until it's a little warmer than 19 though

All I did was sand everything with some scotch bright, clean it up with some acetone, hang it up and shoot it. It all came out great, what a difference.
