It was unseasonably warm (66 degrees and partly sunny) so I put the top down and took the doors off, then went over to campus to help my buddy set up his CB on his S10. Then it started raining. Then it started pouring. So I drove around in the rain for a while. It was fun until I was at a red light and a semi truck comingn the other way drove through a hole and basically dumped about 100 gallons of water straight on me. I got soaked down to my underwear. Jeep needed a good rinsing out before the winter, though.
I am in Lafayette and it rained hard all afternoon. You were probably soaked in the first 2 minutes.
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:
00 TJ with a few mods. Hopefully more someday...
Dude, nice stickers. Round these parts we call that a Kentucky-Go-Faster.
I left mine doorsless and topless out in the rain last night. Needed a good rinsing out.
2003 TJ X Silver | 31x10.50x15 BFG A/Ts | 10k front tow hooks, factory rear tow hook | 2" coil spacers | Cobra 19 with RatShack 102" stainless whip on an Arizona RockyRoad tire carrier mount | Kilby Steering Box Skid | AtoZ Fabrication Rock Sliders | Olympic Slider Rear Bumper w Receiver | Skid Row Engine/Oil/Tranny skid (still sitting in my living room)
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.
