I finally got around to bending the deer dent out of my drivers door, no creases and no paint chips so I got lucky, I left the minor almost unnoticeable dent in front and behind the door, unless you look hard you don't see them anyway, besides pulling them requires a dent puller, and I ain't drilling no holes in the body

Nevada not having inspections and 3 different stickers on your windshield wins.
i had to wait an hour and pay 22 bucks but since they didnt hassle me about side markers and my exhaust thats fine with me. i walk to border between legal and illegal pretty closely

Painted the fender flares, head lights bezels, speaker pods and liscense plate brackets. Installed a pair of 6.5" speakers in the pods. The fit with no mods.


And Alabama with no annual state inspection for the win.

The micro relay I ordered from Radio Shack had arrived mid week, I just hadn't taken time to mess with it. So, I went ahed and did the flasher mod from Stu's website (LED Tail Light Turn Signal Modification) in anticipation of the Savvy LED tail lights that should be arriving soon.

So much fun! (NOT) My bad eye sight and big fat fingers gave me a fit. Not to scare anyone off. If you know how to solder prperly on small electronics, it isn't that hard. Just be prepared to be patient and careful. Mine isn't as pretty as Stu's, but it works. I guess I won't really know if the mod was successful until I install the LED lights. But it works with the OE lights, so I'm optomistic. Here are a few pictures...









I'm sure they're are a lot of different ways to do this. But this is what worked for me : 22ga solid wire, .032 diameter rosin core solder, iron on low 20 watt setting. (don't forget to tin your tip)

I seriously plan on installing the track bars and the last LCA skid tomorrow...

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.

i picked up some grab handles, bought some rhino liner, and ordered the brackets to stop my sway bar from shifting.

Found 5 rims with tires mounted cheap on Craigslist, for pretty much the cost of 1 rim ($150). Came off one of those 2-door cherokees that a 16 year old kid totaled after having it a week. Hope he enjoyed those fancy wheels and tires for that week and hope he get's to walkin around better. His mom was nice

rescued a 2000 jimmy after four hrs of work. Two nights ago i got a call from a kid i no. he was wheelin his stock jimmy at the power lines and got completely stuck. We attempted to tug his *** out, but he didnt budge. so we left his car their overnight (cause we had to, we had a football game the next day). After our game i had to rush home hook up my new winch half assed and rush back to the powerlines. Using a come along and a winch together we finally got it out. As we came out of the trail a cop was waiting for us, fml things i get for being nice.
