What did you do to your TJ today?

OK, I stole the idea from the YJ forum but it's a great idea so let this thread be an inspiration for all of us doing mods, maintenance, or repairs to our TJ's!

Personally, I installed my trusty Uniden CB into my new Rubicon.

I just went with the 4.5 RE superflex kit but swapped out the 4.5 springs for the 3.5. Its a pretty complete kit minus the rear adj. trackbar. I havent installed it yet but Ive only heard good things about RE

i pulled the downpipe and cat from mine so i could put the new one in. also tried to drill a hole into the bolt that broke off in the head from where i took the manifolds off. and prepared the garage to take the valve cover and head off to get the bolt out.

I did the garage door opener mod, installed a fuse block, installed backup lights, installed a switch for the dome light (instead of pulling fuse #4), and pulled out all the amps.
