I ordered matching tire/wheel for a spare. Waiting on my BB to come in so hopefully tomorrow or the next day, I'll be able to say I got it installed. Also fixed my clutch problem. The little joke of a part that holds the rod coming from the master cylinder to the clutch petal tore up and left me stranded. I didn't go back with one of those lame spacers. I wrapped two zip ties around the two to keep them together. Seems like a much better fix to me.

OK, since the last post I’ve removed more from the Rubicon, front differential and all of its components, it was bent and needed to be sent off to SLC for a housing repair, most of the interior, the front body parts, radiator and ac. Yesterday I picked up most of the odds and ends from the body shop, (fenders, hood, doors, cowl, radiator support), and I am picking up the tub today. I decided to paint it the 2007 Jeep red. I stripped out the new/used tub right down to nothing to make the color change look really nice, the firewall needed to be blasted due to the engine fire from the parts jeep.
I ordered a 4” ROCK CRAWLER lift, I hope it will be here this week, I would really like to install it when the tub is off of the frame, it would be nice not to have to do all of the cutting off of the brackets on my back. The transfer case needs to come out to put a new case around it, the original one kind of blew apart, the guy at the Jeep dealership said the case was the same as the NP 231, WRONGO!! so now I have to buy a case.
If you look in my gallery there will be more photos.
I'll keep the pics coming and keep you informed of the progress, need to be ready for MOAB at the end of May.
Received my Infiniti 1101t tweeters I will install this weekend. Had upgraded all factory speakers to Infinities but still can't get clear highs. With factory speaker locations, sounds are pointed towards my knees or the floor behind front seats! With these mounted on top of dash just inside the windshield I should hear it more clearly.

I didn't do diddly to my TJ today. But tomorrow I'm putting on my warranty-replaced Warn Premium hubs.
