I think a photobucket account is the easiest way. It's also free

Picked up front grill cover and headlight bezels from a buddy at the Line-x shop. Cant stand the chrome. I think it came out pretty good







Oh, and a nice clean engine is always nice

Nice Jeep. Any details on the roof rack on the hardtop? Oh and I always love seeing new LJs pop up on the forum, but shouldn't this be in the Build Threads instead of tech?

Been ordering parts and getting things in. Had a remote start installed ( the winters up here suck) and I put in a seat riser kit. Much better seating position now. Also removed the alum tube steps in anticipation for my rockers coming in.

A change of plan on the rear arms. Currently there is a 15 day build time plus shipping for the Rock Krawler arms so I called up Metalcloak and they had the rears in stock and they were shipped out today.

yeah. Has a neutral lock-out that if it comes out of neutral without the key in the ignition it dies. Many companies are coming out with remote starts for standards.

So you have to leave it in neutral to remote start?

not on the street but it would be nice to have that option when parked on a hill offroad. I was just kind of referring to not everyone leaves it in neutral every time. I would hate to have to remember if I did or not before hitting the push button start while it was in the garage or parallel parked.

It has to be in N to use the remote start. And the only way to use the start is if the vehicle is in N because it wont start if its in gear even if you try. And I put my in gear on a hill as well but so I just dont have the option to use it then. Worth it to me when its -30 outside

Ok cool. As long as it wont start in gear that is cool.

I asked about the in gear start because I have a friend with a highly modded flatty that does hill starts without using the clutch and was just trying to figure it out. He has no "neutral safety switch" with his homemade system.
