No it was fiberglass rear portion. I had a b2, but then later picked up an 85fsb. Sas'd the front, sitting on 35's. Damn I miss that thing, but it was too friggen big and heavy on the trails. Plus it felt like that hard top was 600 lbs

Installed a Teraflex Hand Throttle today. The kit works awesome, although it comes with approximately half the required hardware for a correct install.

It's great for on-hill starts, and as a low-speed cruise control over rough dirt roads. I always hated bouncing around and jerking the gas pedal. It's also nice on the highway, although it's in no way comparable to OEM cruise control. It's great for the long, empty roads of Northern Maine, though.

OT: My rough country junk started making noise from the upper rears today. Trying to decide if I want Savvy or Metalcloak to replace. Double adjustable would be nice, but I like the idea of the Duroflex joints. But JJ are very proven...... Decisions, decisions.
FYI, Metalcloak is releasing double adjustable rear uppers very soon. The guy I talked to said he didn't really see the need (set them once and you're done), but he said they have had too many requests for them not to offer them.

Jmo, double adjustable are just way easier to install and adjust. I half wish I had gone with them on lowers as well.

For rear especially there can be multiple times you may need to adjust, unless you blast out all possible mods and dial it to perfection all at once.

For front I am currently in the process of constant fiddling between caster and pinion, trying to get drivability sorted out.

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

Put the doors on her...it has started getting cold on the drive to and from work. Also ordered some ccfabs hood line flat fenders. Should be here next week. Does anyone know where I can buy some spray paint that matches my factory jeep paint locally? I know quadratec has it, but they are really high.

The ease of install is really the main reason I think for double adjustable to me. It would be super handy to be able to adjust it on the alignment rack without removing bolts. I also plan on doing a tummy tuck at some point after the new arms, so I will have to readjust after that.

Back on topic: did a little research on speakers. Both fronts are officially in the rubber surround-less territory, so that will likely be soon.

I finally installed my CB that I bought about 3 weeks ago.
Replaced my muffler that had a huge hole in it! I went cheap for now, $20 for a glasspack and 2 clamps. So far I like the way it sounds, but anything is better than what it was.

Yes, those are YJ uppers on an LJ. Only temporary, though, while I repair my upper sliders.

Good luck with that pa. I tried it with my uniden and I didn't even other installing it. Wasn't loud enough or my liking. It's in my black hole of a closet now

I looked out the window at my 1997 Wrangler SE and wished the ring and pinion gear had not gone bust. Looking for a D44
rear end complete with 410 gears to replace my d35. Anyone.....?
