Well, it was yesterday, didnt have time to upload the pics, but went from this:


to this



fits pretty well, bought it used from tjlinux(thanks). Never had a soft top before, just the hardtop since I got it last year. Now its time to fix the hardtop up. I think it makes the Jeep look better

I saw it today in the drive way and it has no flats... My 36s leak a little. I've been away for a week. Tomorrow i'm going to go over everything to leave for next weekend. going to wash it, maybe wax it, go over all the nuts and bolts I can find to check their tightness, see if I broke anything last weekend, maybe install the alloy USA shafts, and maybe install the weight distributing hitch on the trailer.

Picked it up from the shop, with new Front Gears, Lockers, ARB Compressor and Airlines run Front and Rear...

Ordered a 39 tooth Speedo gear to fix my now hosed up Speedo (4.56 Gears on 33" tires)...

And tonight after work, I'm going to relocate my CB Antenna Mount/Antenna/Coax, install my new Bestop No-Drill header and switch out some of the Switch Actuators on my sPOD with Blue Ones so match the ARB Ones. I also need to wrap up some of the ARB Power Wires running under my hood from the compressor to The SOURCE relay box from http://www.4x4spod.com
Busy Busy!

Got the deal of the Century....

I found a custom fabrication place...he makes decorative garden stuff, hand rails, trailers, stuff like that...and probably some other stuff to...but anyway I found this place and decided to go by and ask if he had any scraps I could take off of his hands...well he said "Sure what are you looking for?" I said "um, like some angle, 4, 5, or 6" (for Rocker guards), or just some scrap to weld on...he said yeah i got some angle...it is 3" X 6"...

I said ok, how much?

I ended up getting:

2- 6' 6" X 3" X 3/8" angles for 10$

I know I know...overkill for rocker guards, but it was 10$....

so i went to Menard's and got some bolds and some rubber backing, and some flat black rattle can, for 25$

So this week I am going to start making my rocker guards....I will post a thread on them when I make them...I am going to go well to well...

I figure 35$ and some fun goes over a lot better with the wife than 200$ + for some from the web...

Cool side note, he said to come back and show him when I finish, and to let him know if I when I need something else, he said he would cut, drill, or do anything to it if I could not...real nice guy.

Rad Day....

Threw my new RainGear trail cover on just as the skies opened up. The cover came UPS an hour before it started pouring. No water pooling above the cab after hours of rain. I like it.

Today I took the front fender flares off and painted them with Krylon Fusion satin black. They look much better. Tomorrow maybe I will do the rear flares, not sure. The front was such a pain, I might just mask the other off and paint them without removing them.

I just masked mine, worked really well, just make sure it isn't windy.

I have my BB and some factory springs with 800 miles on them in the mail (to replace my 100,000 mile ones)
