got my pro comp bumpers in and put them on the other day no mods required. The add said there would be drilling required for the 97 TJ I didnt find anything that needed drilling. The rear came with 8 bolts with lock washers and backing plates 4 on each side and there are tabs also that tie it into the frame on each side. The weld on the receiver hitch goes through both sides and looks good the d-ring attachments look to be welded good I have pics just don't know how to post them.The cost for both front and rear with d-rings on both and receiver on the rear came up to $298.92 that was with shipping UPS ground. For the money I think you would be hard pressed to beat the quality. if you need the link here it is.

Yesterday: Took the doors off. Removed the side steps. Took the back seat out. Ripped out all the carpet.

Soon: Bedliner and nerf bar.

Took the ends off the bumpers and relocated the GPS mounting, in readiness for a trip to the desert on Friday. If I get time tonight, the hardtop is coming off and the safari top is going on - it's 35 degrees celcius in the day, with 60 per cent humidity, and close to perfect wheelin' weather for me.

Not so much today as over the weekend... Had gotten my jeep stuck in water, and filled the tranny with water. Since it was acting up anyway, I pulled it out and had it rebuilt, as well is the t-case. Also installed a JB Converstions Super Short SYE.

I put it back in Saturday, which was a good time, especially when I screwed up the threads on the front transmission cooler line. Took a file and a pick to it and straightened them out. Went to start it up, and heard a great commotion in the bell housing area. As soon as I noticed that, I noticed that it was spitting fluid out of the front pump/converter area. Oh boy! Pulled it back out Sunday and took it down the guy who rebuilt my transmission. He replaced the front seal, and gave me a nifty little tool to align the pump and the splines to aid in putting the converter in. I put it back in Sunday afternoon, started it up and booyah! She ran like a charm!

Now all I have to do is wait on my Tom Woods driveshaft which is arriving tomorrow, and I can put my Mach 1 up for the winter. THANK GOD!!

Side note: On the SYE, JB Conversions say that you need to buy a Chrysler connector kit, but that damn thing is $30!! Being the cheap bastard that I am, I just made up quick disconnects for it and returned the wiring kit. Seems to work just fine. I filled the connectors with dielectric grease, and put some heatshrink around them.

gotta love the gas light...

the speedometer rises as the gas gauge falls....

sounds nice, with a 0-60 of around 7

to contribute to the thread..

I did a oil change and rotated the tires... cleaned it up and now it's ready for winter..

This was all done while watching the Redskins get their butts handed to them yesterday.

Installed my third brake light on my atozfabrication rear bumper/tire carrier. Wrapped the wire with some conduit. Blew some fuses,,,fixed the problem....drank beer,,,,threw up. Ain't done that for a long time.

Removed the softop and put the hardtop back on.....I forgot how quiet it is with the hardtop on. I can actually hear my stereo without turning it up.
