Most radios have a bolt and nut in the rear. My advice is to Run a cable from that nut through the firewall and once radio is in place bolt the cable tightly to another bolt/nut on the engine side of the firewall. You can't pull that radio out for crap. The only way is to remove the nut on the firewall and pull the radio and cable out. Seems like extra work but a common thief won't think twice if he can't pull out the radio easily.

Took a trip to discount and grabbed the Help! door lock clips and fixed my door handle the proper way, instead of using zip ties again

I swapped my radio mount kit to the autozone brand. Works great now No rattle.

And then I had to rush to get the jeep buttoned up since it looks like we have some nasty weather coming down from ABQ.

A bunch of bolt ons

I added the windshield light brackets and a set of lights. I also intstalled the mirror relocation brackets and moved the mirrors. Not that happy with how much of the passenger mirror is now useless when the doors are on but I can live with it. I then replaced the torx bolts on the windshield hinges with thumbscrews so no tools are required to lower the windshield. All from Quadratech.
I'm waiting on a skyjacker 2" spacer lift to come in and get this, my wife wants me to get bigger tires for it. What a great woman she is!!!

I got my jeep stuck in some soft (reaaaally soft) sand on the bank of the Rio Grande... not fun. We eventually got it out, but now I know to pack at least a shovel when we go that way... But I don't think that'll be until I get some 30's for my jeep.

I installed a Tom Woods Super Duty SYE kit and rear drive line. Not only did all of my highway vibrations go away, my skid plate is back up where it should be. The transfer case drop was by far the worst thing I've ever done to my Jeep!

While I was at it, I dropped the trans. pan, hammered it back into it's original shape , replaced the trans filter, and new fluid.

Washed the rubi with the top down and doors off, and then changed the oil.
