Installed my Full Traction 3" lift and OME shocks over the weekend! Still have some tweaking to do with the tranny skid to clear the front drive shaft before I can put it back...

Here's a pic of it with the stock 30" Wrangler GSAs. I've got real 33" tires on the way this week.

(Poor quality but you get the idea.. I took it with my cellphone since my real camera's battery died)

Detailed it out and nufinished it. Put my windshield sticker on, bought new heavy duty floormats, installed my sony head unit and ran my cable for mp3's, removed the internals on the Jeep navigation system "bulge" (on the jeep when I got it, but the kept the gps unit and I'm not dropping 800 for one) superglued it to the dash plate (had holes in it already) and installed a rubber mat inside it to hold various nicknacks inside, mounted my driving lights, added my kids team's stickers to the bumper, mounted my fire extinguisher, got my velcro, quick disconnect, and mounting spots figure out for my CB (next weekend's project) and hauled 10 bags of wood chips and a screen door home from Lowes...

It's a standard Garmin Quest II... Last I looked you could buy it for under $500 most anywhere, maybe even under $400 now.

And you can buy the cradle with harness for around $150 from the dealer. $550 is better than $800.. I have the Trail Guide and the unit is awesome.. works perfectly for such a small unit.

Chopped the LHD brackets off my brand new 2-row from radiator barn and welded on the RHD brackets from my old radiator. I'd had my old one re-cored in the past but it just ended up leaking again, and the core rotting. The other side (front) actually doesn't look too bad.

The old core, with mount removed. I had to solder a leak to keep it running while waiting for the new radiator to arrive.



The new radiator before modification...



And after...

If it doesn't work properly, look for the service manual link at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for the info...didn't realize it was a standard unit. I've kept the internals of the cradle for a future install and I can just pop the cover back on at some point if I come up with a deal. Thanks for the info!

Put my Hella 500's on the windshield brackes that have been lightless for 2 months. I found a way to make the windshield light brackets, mirror mover brackets and the front brackets for a Garven Wilderness Rack to all work together and still be able to take the doors off!!! Only too removing the bottom of the door pins with a dremel!!
Wish I had pics but the camera is broken

I pulled out a full size Bronco out of the mud which his buddies full size Bronco couldnt do. I also pulled my friends ranger off a rock where he was stuck sitting on his frame. I guess Fords should stick to pavement.

Haven't done anything to it today. But a guy at the gym where I work out showed up this morning and parked his "new" late model TJ out front - with a lift, big tires, and nice wheels.

Now I feel inferior since mine is still essentiall stock except for Tuffy products etc :-(

Too bad I can't afford to do any of that anytime soon
