I'd post photos...but apparently my phone makes photos that are about 4KB too large.
Im sorry but why did you drop your fuel tank instead of just lifting the body off of the axle..? It would have given you enough room.


Is it broken?

I've never seen good half/tube doors on WJ... Until now. Thank you, sir, for inspiring another project.

I came back to the WJ in a parking lot and saw a little puddle of coolant :/

Took me a while to find out where it was coming from, it seems to come from the drivers side bottom corner where the metal is pressed on to the plastic tank. Right behind the drain cock. Kind of confusing though, because after it leaked that one time, it hasnt leaked since

Is it broken?

Also plastidipped front upper and lower grill, fixed ac (hopefully), replaced taillights, installed roof rack cross bars, installed powered sub...I think that is it.
I replaced my stock infinity "tweeters" with the polk db351s. Sounded so much better but way off balance till I installed the new rear speakers. Now I need some for the front doors, probably something polk as well. I agree its well worth modding the dash for the polk 3.5s.

I just read that gas was expected to spike up by 20 or 30 cents by this weekend to next week, because of demand.
