If you have a Harbor Freight near you go check them out. You should be able to get one cheap. Plus they have coupons online too.

I saw those and wondered the same thing lol. They're priced pretty good too if I remember correctly.

This exactly. I bought mine for $69 with coupon and it's great. I believe it's the 3 ton one. Lifts the wj quickly and with a couple blocks under it lifts my lifted zj too. HF jack stands are good too.

I buy a lot of Harbor Freight stuff but as a general rule and not to be a HF basher, I shy away from stuff like jacks and jack stands from HF. Even though their quality has gone down a bit in recent years, Sears is a good place and they usually have good sales that bring the price down close to HF.

Started the process of turning my limited into a Laredo. Lol. The cladding was all dinged up so I figured I'd truck bedine them. I'm such a junky with that stuff.
Before and after pics. I'm going for the front bumper next.

Thanks. I thought about that, but after seeing it w/ the Fascia off I don't think it would look that great, my grill is attached to the Fascia - Type B here - http://www.wjjeeps.com/grilles/grill...htm#FASCIAREMB but if you put a grill on by itself and did something with the fog light wires then might be OK, would still have the big holes in front for the tow hooks

They fit but their disappointing. Those assemblies (even the circular 2004s) don't project the LED light very well. I will admit that they serve as a great Daytime Running Light set up as they get garner attention due to the different shade of light, but they don't cast a beam more than 8 feet. Thumbs down.

Changed the oil and drained/refilled the power steering pump. Recently, I've noticed a burning/melting plastic smell but for the life of me couldn't find the culprit. While I was underneath today, I found the problem. One of the zipties on the wiring of one of the O2 sensors had broken and allowed the plug to touch the exhaust. Luckily, it didn't melt it very bad. Tightened her up with a few new zipties.

Pulled my seats out and cleaned my carpet up real nice. Now I'm debating on wether or not to pull my carpet and bed line the floor.
