Installed a front dome lite attached to the bottom of my CB which is mounted above the mirror.

I am in Lafayette and it rained hard all afternoon. You were probably soaked in the first 2 minutes.

today I pulled the wiring that went to my old KC reverse lights. They need to be re wired and re mounted. Plan for January because i'm going to make a custom mount on the bumper.

also rerouted my wires under the hood for the KC's up front.

took out some wires that wern't used anymore

also put some oil in my air system... I think I put too much because it started seeping out the top... oh well nothing a little soap, water, and some time didn't fix.

also re seate two of my 36s because some how they were leaking from the sticks and such between the wheel and tire... wonder where that came from.

I've been wanting to buy a tuffy rear security drawer(the big one) and stack it on top of the full length underseat drawer. After shopping around i realized i didnt have a 1000 to spend so i spent 175.00 and built my own.

Been busy wrenching the last few weeks and havent had a chance to post pics

Installed new CB. Mounted behind the center console until I get a roll cage and mount on spreaders up above.



Brought antenna wire along with wiring harness and then out through the stock hole for the tail light



Mounted with 48" Firestick Antenna:



Put in some RE 1 3/4" spacers up front to help level out the jeeps front end



Did a JKS 1.25" Body Lift with 1" JKS BMML. Motor mount lift was a PITA! Body lift went relatively smooth but my Fabtech rocker panels that go in between body and frame cause an issue. Was unable to fit 4 of the JKS screws through with the rubber spacers on the underside. I plan picking up some longer hardware



As it sits now. You can see the long and exposed body mounts because of the extra width from the rockers. I love my Fabtech rockers but id stay away from them if you ever plan on a body lift



Also added some extra horsepower:

I left mine doorsless and topless out in the rain last night. Needed a good rinsing out.

crap, pics aren't working.... give me a day or so and I'll have them up

Put on a warn front bumper and removed the stock tire carrier, welded the bolt holes shut and smoothed it all up. Looks great.

Monday night I fixed my exhaust that was rattling against the upper control arm... more motivation to get that long arm kit installed I guess. What a PITA. Had to cut the bolts off where the down-tube meets the manifold and replace them and the j-nuts. Also had to heat & tweak the mount over the cat to get it to clear the control arm.

Next up, front u-joints. Found both are loose and one has a chunk missing from the cap so I can see what's left of the needle bearings inside.

Nice. I did the same on my '06 Rubicon today! Had the Warn bumper on the other day but just installed the tire carrier today.
Good lookin Jeep!
