Got the GC on a lift today, changed most of the fluids, spark plugs, fuel filter, pcv valve, rotated the tires and found that the bushings on my a-arm are wasted. Luckily this isn't a daily driver so I'm gonna save some money and go ahead and get the rear long arm kit from IRO. Hopefully sooner than later though... it's desert season.

Decided after the rains last night to take the wife out again for a little off-roading. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, got the jeep muddy as hell, wound up running trails for 3 hours without realizing it and got home and the little lady is in the best mood she's been in since I don't know when.

Simply put, I think I've found the holy grail (aside from the secks) to get 'er into a good mood.......That surprised me that she would be that into wheeling. At first she's like "OMG don't go through that you'll get your jeep muddy" But by the end she's more like "OMG if you don't go through that deep mudhole you're such a vag!" and then when I told her I didn't think we'd make it (bone stock '04 WJ ltd on the non-at tires I bought it with).... Yeah, we had a good time. Thanks Jeep.

Can't wait to to get rid of all this rough country stuff.
Well test ride went well. I took it over the gnarliest bump in the road that I travel everyday and it was way better.

Yay!!!

Nice wj, I like the d rings up front, I want to get some like that, did you have to do a custom bracket to get them to fit with your bar up front?

No not at all. I bought the wrap on Amazon for around $45. Used a razor blade, hair dryer and a plastic hand tool thing to help push the vinyl around the trim pieces I didn't remove from the Jeep. It ties the black interior together better in my opinion than the grandpa looking wood did

This is the wrap I used
http://www.amazon.com/Gloss-Black-DI...m+dinoc+carbon

The plastic tool
http://www.amazon.com/Chizler-Hand-V...=pd_sim_auto_3

Removed the radio bezel to wrap it.




Also removed the little trim piece on the drivers side over the AC vent.




The rest of the trim I left in the Jeep only because its a PITA to get out and it worked out fine leaving it in.


Took me a few hours taking my time and watching Fast N Loud in the garage during the process.
