JEEP. Mine are pretty empty now from the past couple of months! Especially on this military pay!

I take them off when I go wheeling (takes like 5 minutes). Otherwise I keep them on because they help keep the kids dry when we are driving in the rain. They taper in so if I trim them they won't stick out as far and probably wouldn't be as effective.

Also didn't finish my horn button. Anyone know where the wire is in the steering column? I have a ground. Just need the positive that comes out in the column before the clock spring....
The horn works off the ground, the horn always has power then when you hit the button it grounds the system.




Why is everyone saying you can't do push button start on a 5spd. I did one on mine with steering wheel lock disable. 100% key free. All I need to do now is a combo lock on my tuffy console and I'll be good

Took advantage of the summer sale Kolak is offering, and finally ordered a set of bilstiens. Can't wait to ditch the 2.2 shocks. Only shocks I've ever seen that are still stiff while leaking.....

Well I passed on that CJ. There was a lot of rear patch work and the rear body mounts were gone.

But I am ordering a all aluminum UCF UHC skid today.

Today me and Richisinyoface powder coated my grille.
Here is the grill removed.

The grill being stripped.

And the grill put back on.

Here you can see that we also blacked out everything behind the grill.

I also got Richisinyoface's previous bumper for my Jeep!


With all the tailgates old hardware gone, i placed stainless steel button heads in all the old holes. The tailgate will be powder coated soon.

Im also working on painting and trimming my flares. Ive decided to leave off the fins at the bottom of the body. Also replaced those with stainless steel button heads.

So i love it all! Looks beautiful and theres plenty more to come! Big thanks to Richisinyoface!

Got my motor mount lift and BL on today. That motor mount lift was a freakin pain. Made the mistake of taking both off at the same time and the engine got misaligned and slid back. Used a come along and muscle power to pull it back forward. Was hoping to get my BB on today too but didn't quite make it. Tomorrow I guess
