Installed replacement Polk crossover and put baffles stuffed with polyfil on the 5251's. I trimmed them as I like being able to see the plates in the dash. Also installed the MC Front UCA's and unboxed the Duro joints for the front LCA's. Going to try to cut, weld, and install them tomorrow.

Do the baffles help with vibration in the dash panels?

Why you should never try to dart around someone backing into a parking spot. Especially with 2 kids in the car.

Found $150 in PS Certificates on Facebook for $75 so I jumped on those, then turned around and ordered a louver from PS. Should work out to be about $85 shipped.

Yeah, reading on his thread he's hard to beat on the good deals gig. How you gonna finish the louver? I think leaving it bare on your yellow would look fantastic, except that you have a bunch of black already...

Black. Probably Plasti-dip and Glossifier.

Friend of mine just put the PSC hood louver on his TJ after black powder coating; it looks sharp. I think you'll be pretty happy with the black.

"Some Assembly Required" is a target, not a deterrent.

I think so. I'll eventually have all the MC armor (and bumpers) as well as some other accessories including the louver powdercoated to match.

Yesterday, finally got the HU I've been waiting for for ages. Had to get on the seller constantly to get it here, but now it's in.

Old: Kenwood KDC-X395
New: Kenwood KDC-BT558U



Best of all, it changes color.





Way higher max volume than the old one. Also finished cleaning the interior and putting the carpet back in.

Sunday, rebuilt the rear driveshaft and installed PS hood louver. Need to take the shaft to get balanced as it's like driving a washing machine.

Used the last of my Goodyear rebate to order 2 sets of ChiChin LED's. Total of 40 pods. Looked so good on Clay's TJ and so cheap, couldn't pass it up. The price dropped an additional 21 cents overnight as well and has Prime.
