Did the fog light relay mod so that they stay on with the high beams.

Yep. Our winter get down to 50 or 60 below, and will actually freeze and crack soft top windows. Hard tops are almost mandatory here.

I usually run a safari top during the summer, but we had one week that dropped down into the 50s with lots of smoke from forest fires, so I installed the hard top.

If Autozone has it for sale here in AK, I am sure you can find it elsewhere in the west.

Buttoned up my front axle last night (except for the knuckles, which are still in California)...


Now I can install it and set up my front suspension!

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

Mounted my new Vortex winch yesterday. Will post in the reviews with some close-up pix when I get a chance. Now I just have to wire it in.
Didn't I take a week vacation this week for something..... Oh yeah, I was supposed to finish putting siding on my house. Guess I better work on that at some point.

yes, the inner box will roll out, the sliders are installed on the outer box but not screwed into the " drawer " section yet, i was just doing a dry fit when this picture was took.



the sliders i bought are suppusevely good for 100 lbs. worst comes to worst i could also add another set to sturdy it up.

the height difference will be split, i want to give it at least an inch on the bottom

i figure the drawer sides and back dont have to go all the way to the top, im not going to have piles and piles of crap pouring over the edges, but it'll still be tall enough for me to store a small 1 ton jack stand in it if i wanted to.

i cut up some " dividers " that will be installed in the drawer that are 8" high ( the sides and back are 10" )

here are the 100 lb sliders:

Changed my sparkplugs, used Autolite APP's.

Also changed the fluid in my D30 & D35.

On a side note I found out that my D35 has a limited slip in it!!!


While i was at it I installed some Riddler diff covers. I'm a lazy picture taker so here is a picture of the D30 cover painted but the logo isn't finish. And a picture of D35 cover more or less finished. No pictures of them installed yet.

save your money and do it yourself with a tape measure..only takes a few minutes as all they can line up is the tow in..bungee cord a straight edge on both wheels in the same level area middle ways of the tire and measure the front and rear and just get the front a 1/8 inch shy of what the rear is..if it needs adjusted just loosen the 2 nuts on the turn buckle on the tie rod and turn it slightly till you get the right measurement,,it will be as good as any shop that will charge you to do it..its a very easy and kwik job..

I've seen the threads, but haven't been brave enough or had enough free time to try it. Thanks.
