I did the one on my xj and it was a royal pita cause I had to wire up relays for the door locks and bypass my viper alarm. With the 455j doorlock interface and factory alarm and everything though the wj is not that bad.

Later this week will be my Saguaro front shackles, Front passenger window regulator (2nd time), rear hatch struts!

just received all my new jeep item the past few days

-black gen 3 housing with CCFL
- 9006 4300K 35W HID
- hid relay harness
- 6 amber leds
- 750 B&D power inverter

picked up the headlioghts used (in almost new shape) and one halo wire is mesed up so might try to fix it.not nuts on the halos but CCFL are much better then the basic leds other have. going to see how the black headlight look on my sliver jeep. if its dose not work with my jeep they will be for sale and i might order the chrome version.
power inverted was a JU member for $25 shipped pretty much new and everything else is new form mix sellers

New oil/filter
New brakes at all 4 corners (pads, rotors, calipers)
Took off bug guard/rainguards on all doors and hood
New fluids for front and rear diff's
Fixed passenger cv that had badly torn boot
Ordered RC 4" lift, Spidertrax 1.25" spacers and 265/75r16 tires

Picked up a transfer case and front skid for my WJ from an upcountry Laredo at the junkyard. Tank skid was structurally compromised so I skipped it. Now to figure out how this damned thing mounts up and if I grabbed the right bolts for it lol!

I really like the idea. The only thing I miss about my cj is having the doors off. Let me know when you get the write up done or going.

Got my front skid on. Who was the idiot at DC that decided to put the rosebud fasteners into the factory front skid holes. I had to rip them apart and punch them through with a screwdriver.
