Washed it really well and spent about an hour getting the dog hair out of the back with a dog hair/lint roller.
Gotta be a better way.

Also replaced the milk jug floaties with flat caps. ($3 ea from dealer!)

Got pictures?


I took the doors off for the first time yesterday...scratched the nuts (the ones that hold the doors on...geeze where is your mind!) so I figured what the hey, Ill leave em off. Never ridden in a jeep with no doors...I loved it immediately...then it poured! So today I took out all the carpet, researched linings for the tub, and took off those gay factory side steps...even though the wife mod was complaining! OH YEAH, almost forgot, usps notification said my BB spacers were delivered to work...and my Skyjacker hydros should be here Wednesday...excited because I am off from 1200 on friday until wednesday morning!

You can't be first, but you can be next!

I broke my transmission case, on a 4" limb lying in the trail. I suppose its time to invest in skid plate. Trail rated pos!!#%#$@#

Sorry, I posted this in the wrong place, I traded my TJ for a JK. Mistake #1?

Made a short shafted 27 tooth speedo gear out of a new, long shafted 27 tooth gear and the short shaft of the factory 29 tooth gear. Without some info from kaybone, I'd have sent the new gear back and kept looking for a part that doesn't seem to exist.

Purchased a new soft top in Khaki Diamond, matching spare wheel cover and some xtreme front bumper end caps as my birthday treat

SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES. NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I masked and painted my fender flares...I used Fusion plastic paint for best UV/scratch/chip resistance. Looks BRAND new! I also mounted my Rokmen Mercenary front bumper and installed two Hella 500s.

Later Today I will be adding my light bar and four more Hella 500s...woohoo! Then I'm going to paint the paddle handles and the hood clamps. Everything will look like new!

I had my rear bumper done last week, and hell it's some good stuff.

Now I think I will do like you did and have my door hinges done. Probably also my KC windshield lights tabs.
