Swapped out my full steel doors for the lower halves of my full soft doors. Getting ready to go wheelin' up in the mountains this Saturday!

Also replaced my broken down worn out stock seats for another set of stock seats that are in near-new condition. What a difference in comfort! The main problem with the old seats was on the left edge of the drivers seat, where it had basically worn out from getting in and out of it all the time. SOMEDAY, I'll get me some Mastercraft seats!

This was a good Jeep week.
Swapped out the hinges....cannot believe they didn't paint underneith.
the tailgate metal was seriously corroded, where they put aluminum hinges on top of unpainted steel... can you say electrolosis??
Painted the bumpers, wheel well extensions and spare tire carrier.
Swapped the last chrome item...the headlight basels. I am now mono-cchromatic !

Took the 5.25's out of the soundbar and replaced with a 6.5". Adapted the 5.25's to the front end to replace the 4x6's (or whatever they are). Sounds good, don't notice a huge difference between the 5.25's and the 4x6's (Same name brand Infinity Speakers), but that will change once I get around to putting the amp in.

Probably get around to throwing the 4x6's and their adapters on ebay later, but who knows. Already feel to lazy to head out to the garage..lol

had the body shop drill out my broken shock mount bolt, weld on a new nut and put the missing shock on. took em 2 hours because my dumb@$$ had started drilling out the bolt sideways and they had to remove the gastank to weld the new nut on :

well worth the money IMO, i spent as much as it would have cost for them to fix it in tools trying to fix it myself and four hours of my time. plus by trying myself i ended up making it harder for them to fix lol

now i just have to drop the TC and the vibes should be gone

Today was the first day in my new wrangler, and I took the day off of work, and drove around with the top down and the doors off for about 5 hours.

Got home from work and installed my EMP steering box skid. Nice easy install, gonna probably drill a hole and use that self tapping screw for the passenger side of the skid, but the two bolts seem like more than enough.

Ex - 2001 Wrangler, 2" BB, 32" BGF AT's. JKS Quicker Disconnects, Oil Pan Skid, Steering Box Skid. Hard Top, Soft Top, Safari Top, Olympic Mountaineer Rack.

Current - 2008 Unlimited Wrangler Rubicon. Rock Krawler Stock Mod 2.5" lift, 35x12.50x15 Cooper STT's on Pro-Comp D-Windows, Husky Floor Liners, Mastercraft Grab Handles, Weathertech Side Window Deflectors, Hitch mounted D-Ring, Rancho Oil Pan Skid, Rugged Ridge E-Disco Skid, and a Skid Row Evap Canister Skid plate.

It is better to keep one's mouth shut and be thought a fool.... than to open it and remove all doubt.

i cant wait now, i wrote them and will be getting the liberty stinger next month and adding it to my current bumper,

can a short throw shifter be installed with a body lift please help me.

Change my name from H3ohio, To BlockOtj. Just to keep the record straight my old name never stood for the H3 hummer. I use to fly On H3 Helicopters for the navy.

Installed a Lock Right in the front today. Here's some pics....

I'm tired!!

And a video for those who've not seen how a lunchbox locker works. The axle on the right was held still while the axle on the left was spun. Sorry the audio is off. My kingdom for a good free AVI to MPEG converter!!

anything is possible

i dont see why not, the only prob. you could run into is the shifter hitting the body. if that happens just cut away a little bit and your good to go. No worries man you can do it
