Pretty easy, although messy! Took me a couple of hours.

Where did you find the parts to repair this? When I needed to do so, parts houses told me it was non serviceable and needed to be replaced, not repaired. I went with a bone yard one as I wasn't paying Big $$ to replace that DS.

Well it does have something to deal with my Jeep. One of the guys in my automotive class decided to kill his Grand today. Luckily for me, I was on his good side cause I got a lot of free stuff. I only wanted the wood paneling or whatever you'd like to call it, that I had seen surrounded by the radio. Then I saw the wood paneling on all four doors, and where the cigarette lighter was at.

I took all door panels, and everything else in front that had wood paneling, then I took the case where the 10 disc thing was in the back of the Jeep. Scored two skid plates, one for the transfer case and the other one for the front of the Jeep.

Would have been the greatest day of my life if the guy would have let me had all leather seats. They weren't ripped, but they needed cleaning. So I got everything else I wanted off that Jeep besides the seats, but all in all...I'm a happy Jeeper

Driveshaftparts.com used to have it, but their website was down when I bought it. I bought it on ebay instead, and it was funny to open the box and find another box with "driveshaftparts.com" label on it. Their site's working now though. I used the original bolts off the driveshaft, as the ones supplied seemed like they'd be a bit too big on the head and wouldn't fit. Buy some red loctite and put a drip on each bolt. Front and rear CV bolts have to come out, just make sure you clean the threads and put the loctite on them before reinstall. It took me about 2 hours to do total, by myself, no floor jack.

I paid $105 shipped off ebay.

Finally got to take some pictues of the Jeep. Showing the head and taillights I installed a few weeks ago. When I got the Jeep about 5 weeks ago it didnt have anything on it. No tint. Nothing. Bone stock. I never had a car that I could upgrade the lights on, So it was pretty fun. I want to black out the grill insert but waiting till I get black wheels. Need to debadge too. That "J" on the back is an eyesore.

Its okay but I think you have some color mismatch going on there. Maybe shade the laredo cladding a little darker a bit. It just looks weird that you got the chrome inlaid taillights and you have dark tinted headlights and plastic laredo cladding. Painting the rims would definitely be a huge improvement. Its a good base to work off. Also, look at maybe getting a BB and some meaty tires, you'll really fiercen that thing up a bunch

edit: its definitely the rims that stick out
