What did you get? I've been thinking of getting some too.

As far as things I did to my Jeep...I ran over a tree a little too aggressively and tore the corner off the splash guard....good thing I just ordered an engine skid from steel armadillo!

Also ordered replacement climate controls (my lights were burnt out and the buttons were all worn off) and new speakers (kicker upgrade stuff for front and rear)

traded my 02 WJ LTD 4.7 for a 2008 XK LTD 5.7, all options, 83k miles and LOVE IT!
So far, cleaned it up inside and out, and have been ordering suff to do all the basics, fluids, filters ect.
I will be removing the OEM chrome running boards this weekend. not a fan of them.

Stopped by a jeep dealer to see the new Cherokee.... It looks like a Nissan Muranos ugly little sister. That thing is terrible <insert Charles Barkley voice here>.

The best part was the salesman that came out and suggested i was interested in trading in my WK. I asked if he was serious, then suggested that the Cherokee is just as capable as my WK.

And installed my Aspen Creek boulder grille

Yesterday, not today, but figured I would still post it. I bought two flip keys off of eBay to replace my original ones that are missing buttons.

I took them to Home Depot to have them cut. The first one didn't cut right, so he put it in again and it took too much off. I said, "Well crap!"

He had another machine there, so I asked if he could try the other key in that one. It cut it where it looked to be right, but it didn't turn the door lock or the ignition.

Moral of the story -- I wasted $35, will be reordering keys, and I will not be taking them back to HD to be cut!

I also peeled off some plastidip from a botched job. That crap didn't even want to come off with a power washer 2" from it!

OME MD springs showed up today! Now I have

OME MD Springs

JBA UCAs

Rustys adjustable trac bar,

Rustys .25" strut spacers

Rustys rear shocks (not sure if I'm going to keep them or not but they extend to 29" which is huge)

And I'm reusing my RC spacers in the back for the modified OME lift. I already have OME shocks installed.

I'll also see about installing another set of front .25" spacers up front once all is said and done. I'm doing it all this weekend with a good buddy of mine. I'm so stoked

Just received my Aspen Creek hood light mounts. Can't decide whether to go with a flood pattern or a driving/ spot pattern any suggestions. I have 2 Light Force driving lights on my brush guard. I'm thinking of going with Olympus Offroad LED lights.

got my first jeep wave!

was from a pretty badass XJ that I've seen out and and about several times. rigs like that one really make me want to find one to turn into a project so it can get all sorts of beat up

New Kenwood unit and components arrived today! Unfortunately, Geaorge developed a coolant leak at the t-stat and won't be home until tomorrow! Grrrrrrrrr!

Removed the factory plastic floor, built a storage unit under a false floor and left enough room on the side to stand up the 265.
