I finished my first mod. I know that it is no big deal, but I installed a Cobra 75. The box is hidden under the console. It is hooked to a 3 ft Firestik Firefly antenna mounted on a Terra Flex taillight bracket. I made a power cable out of a RG-8X coax cable. Everything seems to work as expected.

Next weekend, install the remote speaker.

Just bought 2" lift spacers, re rear trackbar relocation bracket, and winch plate. Should be a fun weekend if all arrives. I also just picked up my oem soft top this weekend. My mount brackets come in today. Let the games begin.

Getting ready to move vehicles around in the garage and then I'll install the Rokmen corner guards I bought last week.

I gave her a heart-to-heart talk about how empty my checkbook is... even though I know our anniversary is coming up.

I put another 40 bucks in her tank today. I hope she gets me at least 290 miles.
Gotta love the Jeep...She drinks more than I do!

Thanks,

This last weekend I added a Cobra 75 CB with a Firestick antenna and mount. The box is mounted just under the glove compartment and wired directly to the fuse box. I haven't picked a spot for the microphone yet

I added a shovel to my engine compartment using U-bolts, lock washers and wing nuts.

I'm a weekend warrior

Drove it for work on an unbelievably gorgeous day. The Jeep got a fresh coat of wax and a new Gator back belt this weekend and I should have taken her out Sunday when I went surfing, but I took the truck instead.

hmmmm . . . installed front/rear D44, ordered Tom Wood's drive shaft and SYE. Sending him my front to get it shortened. Have to install the pumps for the lockers and run the wiring. Ordered the switches today also. Need to get it out of the garage soon or the wife is gonna kill me.

Realized that I need at least a 2car if not a three car garage on the new house.
