swapped out the rear shocks for the 3.25 RC lift with the correct ones. Thanks Jeffery for getting those out so fast and with no problems.

Took out pucks for the T-case drop and added in some washers in their place. Tried running it without the drop and had terrible vibes @ about 30 mhp. Added just over 3/4" in washers and has a very slight vibe @ 60ish.

Mounted some KC Apollo lights on windshield mounts, threw in some leds in the dash, and wired up a interior light switch

Nice Jeep dude, I bet that kayak(sp?) is a pain to get on and off there! Have you had any issues with mounting your plate up there?

I took my final measurements and marker where to drill my holes in the rear frame on both sides to mount my hooks tomorrow some time! And I went to harbor freight and bought my last hook I needed, another $10 into the Jeep....grrr

Spent 6 hrs tearing out the pedal assembly to try and fix the rattling noise. Stripped the pedal's down to their individual parts, greased the hell out of every single part, made new thicker, heavy duty and oversized gaskets to go between the clutch master cyl/brake booster and the firewall, shimmed the bushings to take the play out of them and it STILL freakin rattles

I went as far as to tear the cowl off and remove the entire wiper assembly thinking maybe that was it but still rattles like a b*tch.

I have been dreading it but I guess I have no choice but to tear the dash out and then re-assemble it taking a test drive after I put each one back

Needs parts?

Thanks man. I still need to do a little more clean up. Apparently I can't draw or cut a straight line!

From the factory, when you flip on your high beams, the fog lights turn off. To get around this you have to bend post #1 (mine are labeled) on the fog light relay until it lays flat onto the side of the relay. This keeps it from plugging in and then you can have your fogs and high beams on at the same time. There is a write up somewhere out there that gives more details on exactly which post needs to be bent.

BTW... I really dig your highline! Is that the AEV kit? Looks nice!!

But of course!
And all the wiring is nicely tucked away.



Little holes are sealed with an o-ring.

But seriously, it's in my sun room right now

I need to hose it off before I haul it into the basement. It's covered in salt.

Whenever I drive without a spare tire, I seem to need one. Aren't you worried?
