I'm planning on putting driving lifts on my push bar eventually and doing exactly what you did here and put the switches right next to each other

Stuck a group 65 battery in the TJ. Fits like glove. The battery tray needed a massage with an angle grinder and I used a hold down kit from Walmart

Changed sway bar links on my '06.

Manually adjusted the "automatically adjusting" rear brakes on the '98. One of the adjusters was seized opposite the thread side. Opened up the thread side and sprayed some PB Blaster in there and let it sit. Once I got the end off I cleaned her up and put her back on. Can park the manual on hills again without thinking I'll come back to to it crashed at the bottom of the hill.

Currently building a tire carrier for my tj

This is how it looks as of right now. Gotta add the D-ring tabs, mount on the back to attach it to the frame, and the stock tire carrier will be welded onto the 2 bars on the tire carrier. Then it will get powder coated and be done!

Seems like it'll work. There's a little bar at the left end where the tire carrier ends that the latch pulls it down onto. There's a plate behind it too spit won't swing back too far. I'll have to see how it holds up on the trails though

Those latches work great when mounted horizontally, so I imagine it will work equally well vertically for you.

If you were closer to me, I'd let you have the one in my garage (missing a few small pieces, but mostly there). Those things are too big to ship.

A rust inhibitor and corrosion resitant that comes in a spray can or gallon cans. Ever wonder why plow/salt trucks don't look like giant rust buckets even though they only see winter work? Most towns absolutely drench their vehicles in this and its been around for years.

It's non conductive, non tacky, wont freeze and you can literally spray it on anything so everything under my jeep gets hit

It's an amazing product that has a bizillon applications, definitely recommend it as necessary for anyone in the rust belt

Installed an ARB (IPF) H4 headlight wiring harness this morning. It was cheaper than the rallylights harness when I bought it and the quality is great. Couple things to note:

-You don't need to remove the headlights, only the headlight bezels to make it a bit easier to move the loom through the grill up to the driver's side headlight.
-The majority of the wiring/relays is set up to be on the passenger side and use the passenger side headlight plug as the trigger. This worked to my advantage as I did not want to use the OEM driver's side headlight plug since it has been causing me issues for the last few months.
-I mounted the relays on the firewall to the right of the heater core box. The relays/relay plugs are very heavy-duty and large so if you have or are going to install a cowl intake, you might have to great creative with mouting them.
-There are three small plugs in the wiring loom attached to the relays. These are not used as ARB included them for Toyota truck applications.

Overall the install was very simple (took about an hour taking my time), headlights work great, and as an added bonus my TJ runs/performs better and starts easier since I cleaned the all of the battery/cable connections at the same time.

Installed my 2" BDS lift. Gained about 2-3/8" in rear, and near 3.5" up front, but my original front springs were in bad shape and sagging horribly. Added a 3/4" spacer in the front as well, now the front sits about 1/2" higher than the back. I expect a little settling though, and when I take the hard top off after this winter should be nice and level I would expect.

I was not planning on the front axle shifting roughly 1.5" though with a 2" lift. Looks like adjustable track bar will be ordered shortly.
