Nothin' big, but I fixed something that has been annoying the hell out of me. The chrome trim on my doors "rattles" with the bass whenever I turn up my stereo. So I removed all the trim and re-attached. The adhesive strips were practically non-existent (or installed in the wrong place ). Took a few pics of the first door I did. Every thing is nice and tight now. Rattle free.
I don't have a sub or anything (just the BA system) and my rig sounded like it was falling apart when I was sitting at a red light.

I just received my tint in the mail for the front windows. Spacers will be here tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have time to install on Sat. I'll post pics when done.


Also, if anyone in the South Jersey area is free on Sunday, check out the post above. ^^ Jeep Shine and Show for a good cause. It's being organized by someone on the wrangler forum. I'm about 1 1/2 hours away, but will be going if I can. I urge anyone in the area to attend and help out a fellow Jeeper's family.

Yes sir. Pre-cut. Easy as pie. I use to tint all my friends cars back in the day. (I feel old) But the pre-cut stuff makes it really easy. Just pull the door panels and go to town. I'll take some pics as I do it and post them when I'm done.

Installed my spacers this morning. They def. give it a much more aggressive stance. Went with 1.5". They brought the tread of the tire right out to the edge of the wheel well. The front tire barely clears the pinch, so I'll be doing that today or tomorrow. Over all I'm very pleased with the look. New wheels would have been better, but I scored these used for $80 shipped.

Looks good Buda! Since you have the Black and Red theme going, you should name yours the Black Widow, lol.

Tomorrow, (hopefully) buying 3.73's for my WK. Will update asap.

Had the dealer replace the big junction block circuit board under the dash outboard the steering column. Think the embedded relays were sticking.

Next, have to pull some connectors this weekend to look for open circuits, then change oil/filter.
