I installed rocker switches for my lights above the windshield in the space between the sun visors. Found out my camera is MIA... time for a new one I guess.

Well i missed my TJ to much which i sold not to long ago so i went out and bought an LJ bit newer then my last jeep since that was a 97 and also got and extra couple inches.. its an 04 , silver unlimited with 22,000 miles...

The problems with it that must be addressed asap are...
1- Way to low for my liking.. its like a lowrider jeep..
2- it has a god awful chrome bumper up front which kinda makes me puke..
3- it has these little teeny tires..

but here it is as it stands today.. ill get more pictures over the weekend.. Im pretty excited!!!

Got new 30/9.5.15 BFG A/TS and.
Then I took out my back seat and stole my dads custom made security box for his YJ. Now for some drilling tomorrow to make it all fit perfect in my TJ.

Also, a nice touch up all-round with Mother's back to black.

Bought the jeep in April, found JF in May...

It's raining. Swam over to the rearend shop, Parson's Differential, to bail out my jeep. Had them swap the open 3.07's for dual TrueTracs and 4.11's. Put on my scuba gear and paddled back to the house. It's supposed to rain all weekend. That means I'll have to buy my wife some scuba gear, too!

From what I could tell from my short ride, 4.11's on 31's is gonna hit the mark just right for me. 2nd gear seems to be maybe just a touch taller than 1st was before the swap - you could now use 2nd for take off with just a little slip of the clutch. 1st gear is not quite a "granny gear" so it's more like it should be.

I was going to 4.56's but after reading you guys helped me decide on the 4.11's and I believe it was the right choice.

Picked up some 2 gauge welding cable a few days ago to upgrade the winch wiring and the rest of the ignition wiring. Got the connectors and heat shrink from the brown santa yesterday. That should keep me busy for a while this next week.
Vortex winch wiring is 8 or 6 gauge. Even not under load, the wire was getting a little warm when spooling in the full length. Wire upgrade and moving the solenoid this coming week.

Installed an Alpine ida-x305 head unit. So far, I love this thing. No cd player, just am/fm and excellent ipod control.

The ipod interface blows away the Pioneer avic I had in my last car, and that was a double din touch screen.

Yeah, ZBDsTJ, Jeep put 4.10's in the Rubi, which came with 31's, so yes, that's the "correct" gearing.

Took the doors back off to enjoy the wheather. Not calling for rain for the next several days. But this is N.C. that could change by the time you read this post.

Painted my new hi-lift to help fend off rust.

Spent 2 hours looking for an HP30 and D35 with 4.10's.
Do you have a pic of the bracket? I have some 3" flat stock and I happen to notice that my TC linkage is jacked at a weird angle a few days ago when I was changing my oil.... I would like to make one, if it is working well.... THX...

I'll get one. Basically there are two small holes to mount it to the bracket that is attached to the body with two small existing bolts. Then there is one large hole to relocate the torque shaft (this hole is placed below the original one however deep your t-case drop is.) Finally there are two small holes on either side of the large hole to mount the "flange" that the torque shaft goes into. This flange didn't seem completely necessary, but if I don;t keep it attached to the jeep I'll lose it!
