I want to put one in the front but have a shop doit.
I was getting it regeared so it cost me about $350 per axle. The carrier was out already so basically all he had to do was put the ring gear on the Detroit and finish setting up the gears.

Installed a front bumper from JCRoffroad. Also installed new speaker boxes for the rear speakers. I had to remove the soundbar so my halftop would fit.



The speaker box is in there square, it's just a bad picture angle.

Put my CB back in, fixed my passenger seat, changed the ATF and filter for the first time (what a pain it is with the t-case skid/shovel there), oil, air filter, new dist cap and rotor, lube, all the normal maintenance stuff.

Me, I took my niece to the state museum but she was gettin blown too much with all the panels off so we U-turned and headed home to put them back - good thing too it wound up pouring rain. I don't mind a good soaking in the TJ but she's five and I figure her mom might never let me take here out again...

Thanks. So far, I haven't done anything for side marker lights yet. Guess I'm waiting for the fix-it ticket for motivation
Same with my license plate light......

after install, i looked on my floor and saw the bearing support...so i get to do it again...
FYI future installers...this is such an easy install, after you remove the shifter plate...

I installed my $12 ADE hidden magnetic kill-switch...

I started my on board air install by hacking off my air box to make room for the on board air. Sadly, I bought a K&N before reading all the hate for them, and that they let in small dust. I did however, get the pre-charger for it, so I'm hoping it's enough to keep out the fine dust when I wheel.

I also mounted my kilby plate, and the york 210 compressor. I need to figure out how everybody fit their tanks underneith their jeeps! I still have to buy some more fittings and hoses, check valve, safety blow-off valve, serp belt, air filter, manifold, etc. Also, my switch still hasn't come from 4x4mods, they replied to an e-mail saying it was returned to them because the address was scuffed, and has been re-sent.

Anybody know what size serp. belt I need with the york mounted? I need to get one soon so I can get this thing pumping!
EDIT: 4.0L no A/C

Installed a 1000W Sony Amp and 12 Woofer. It should be a nice Christmas gift for someone once I decide to take my top off.

Actually I installed it so that they would have to completely tear out the security trunk to get it out. Sounds good.

I installed my JKS 1.25" body lift and JKS 1" BMML yesterday. I installed both of them with simple hand tools, a ratchet extension, a hi-lift jack and the stock bottle jack. It only took me about 3 hours total by myself with no help and a dinner break. It was really easy once you get past the nerve factor. Now my heep looks much better and the hint of vibes from the REBB are completely gone. My next set of mods are gonna be a TT of some sort, sye and rear cv driveshaft, Ford 8.8 rear with 4.10 gears, front D30 4.10 gears and adjustable rear uppers.
