Installed a second switch bezel in place of the ashtray so now I have room for the locker and pump switches. If you're considering doing this, it's a lot easier than it looks and well worth it.

Installed my Alpine stereo and fix the rockbox lights

I tore out the cheap Xplode that was in it and installed my Alpine from my other Mopar rig and it sound totally better......I also powered up the lights in the Rockbox on the roll bar......they were never ever powered up, it's a 99 wrangler. Can you believe it.

Lost, it's a factory grille emblem from late 60s/early 70s FSJs and jeepster Commandos.
I used to have it on my CJ5... had to modify it to fit the LJ

The last couple weeks have been busy. I installed my frankenlift which consisted of:

3" Full Traction springs
Full Traction shocks
Currie rear extended sway bar links
2-4" Teraflex disconnects
hockey puck bump stops in the front
Re-drilled front track bar (I'm ordering an RE track bar soon)
OME rear track bar bracket
I re-drilled my stock brake line bracket, and lowered it on the frame, effectively giving me 3" more brake line
RE steering stabilizer
RE front LCAs
1" Black Mountain body lift
JKS motor mount spacer lift
AA t-case shifter relocation bracket
5 US wheel series 94 black and chrome wheels
5 Mickey Thompson MTZs
Removed the Mopar oil skid that no longer works with the lift

To do:
I'm hoping I can pick up a tire carrier and front bumper this evening
I'm ordering the Rusty's oil pan skid this weekend to replace the Mopar
I went last weekend and picked up a JB super short SYE
The following paycheck will see my new CV drive shaft and Nth UCAs
Once that's done, I'll get the brackets welded up so I can install my 8.8

Powerwashed the interior today to try to get the majority of Badlands out of it before I close it up for the winter, then went through the car wash to get about 20 pounds of Badlands off the exterior.
Did a more thorough check of my motor mounts tonight by having my roommate (a fellow Jeeper) look at them while I had the park brake on and put a load on the engine. No luck there. Looks like it's gotta be one of the transmission mounts.

Is that the one from between the transmission and the transfer case skid plate? I think that could possibly be my problem.

Attempt #2 to fix my "rear-hardtop-glass-wont-stay-shut" problem. Adjusted the tailgate latch bolt thing {raising the closed tailgate a tiny bit) and managed to lower the glass down on the hinges about 1/16-1/8". Seems like it's working now. We'll see in 2 wks. Also installed my 3rd "new car scent" tree-shaped air freshner (from a 3-pk). The good news - spent no money on the jeep... today.
