Just a reminder, don't forget to wear rubber gloves when applying any roll on bed liner. Even when you're done with the task, be sure to wear rubber gloves when it's time for clean up.
I took my rubber gloves off after I was done putting the bed liner on, removing the tape from my tub and cleaning up. What I didn't do is wear them when I decided to install the family bar. I managed to get most of it off my hands, but it looks like the rest will have to eventually wear off.

I just picked up a Family bar over the weekend. I 'm thinking maybe I will add on one of these. They bolt on. I just don't know how it will fit on the CJ Dash. I did find on that mounts to the floor.

So, me and the shop that painted my Jeep are in a little scuffle regarding one of my hard doors that they painted. One of the doors has a nice dent in it which appears to be the result of something falling on it. I just got an email telling me that when the doors were sanded they discovered Bondo in that spot. Umm, I guess this dip stick doesn't realize that I sanded the doors prior to dropping them off to them and I would have noticed Bondo.
I also asked that if this was the case, why didn't the fix it prior to painting just like they fixed small dents in the passenger fender and passenger rear quarter panel. If I remember right the person doing the body work also smoothed out both the driver and passenger side around the tub. This can be seen in pictures that I posted earlier in this thread.
I'm at a lose for words right now as the hard dors are not going on my freshly painted Jeep in this condition. I could take the door to a dent repair place to see what they can do, but I don't think it should come out of my pocket. Other than that I'm unsure where to turn....

Did somebody ask what's hiding under the rear seat? I thought somebody out there in cyberspace mumbled something. Well, here's the beginning of the audio system going in. Should bang fairly good..... Still trying to decide on one or two 10 inch down firing subs.

True, but have to hear it when the top is off while driving down the road. Also when we tailgate, my vehicles usually provides the tunes. So no, none of my systems are meant to rattle anybody's windows especially since I have nothing to prove to anybody.

So, I went down to our maintenance shop this morning to get a few feet of wire and guess what I stumbled upon? You betcha, a box of nutserts, rivnuts, gripserts or whatever you want to call them. I snagged a few nutserts, install tool and some bolts and washers to get this YJ roll bar project completed.
I did order a box of 10 nutserts and an installation tool from McMasters and I'm stoked that they haven't been delivered yet. Those will be returned and I will get my $40 back to spend on other things. Now that makes me happy : )
Anyways, I can't wait to get home this evening to get some things done on Project 23......

tell them you will be more than glad to let the BBB know of the action they took. Then if they still dont care, get 2-3 quotes to get it fixed and say they can fix it themselves or you will fix it and take them to small claims.

Just a few pictures of the car audio portion of this project. First picture is an Alpine head unit tucked away in a Tuffy center console. I can run my iPhone or I touch from it along with having a knob mounted to the front of the Tuffy which allows me to adjust bass
The second picture are the Kicker amps that will rest comfortably under the rear seat. The overall install so far doesn't look bad. This weekend will be spent building a down firing sub box which will be mounted behind the rear seat and house two 10" Rockford Fosgate shallow mount subs.

Well, after spending a few hours in my sweat box (otherwise known as my garage) and major help from John Strenk, the dash gauges and dash have been installed and functional. It took a few hours which included a quick run up to the local Advance Auto store to get some wire terminals. The only wiring left is tying in the harness from the head unit in the center console. Other than that I think we're just about ready to fire this thing up.
Hopefully today I will be getting the dash and steering wheel overlays that I ordered from 4wd Parts. I will also pick up some new oil, oil filter, antifreeze and some other odds and ends. I will also need to get the gear oil changed in the near future. I might take it to the shop for that.
So with that, I want to throw MAJOR props and a huge thank you to John for taking his personal time to help me get over this portion of the project. This was a part of the project that I have actually lost sleep over. John is a great guy and is has mad skills with wiring.

Not too bad. Only two things didn't work right when we were done.
The horn, I have to look into that today and the wipers (fixed)

Nice to work on clean stuff not caked with salt residue...

Got the dash and steering wheel overlays yesterday. The steering wheel overlay needs to be shaved a bit as it doesn't quite fit over the steering column. I'm also glad I went with the silver instead of the black as it goes good with the wheels, antenna and other smaller parts.
