Wired up all my rock lights today. Wiring sucks.
It ain't pretty but they're done. Tonight I'll take a few sweet pictures.

I expect to smash a couple as they're under the lip of my rocker guards but I've got extras

[QUOTE=357transam;19533777]Tore out the interior and cleaned the carpets thoroughly. Was getting really tired of the funky smell associated with 16 years of dirt bulidup. I also took the time to rid the floor of some unwanted surface rust, and cover it with some rustoleum paint I had laying around.[/QUOTE


I would highly recommend Monstaliner! (and Chassis Saver)

Put on a set of 2013 Rubicon wheels and tires.
I wanted the black ones but I couldn't pass up the deal I got on these.

I work in a shop that works on mercedes bmw and audi as well as jeep. hammer method every day. use a socket! and be nice to them, make sure the roller bearings don't fall out of the cups and make sure the snap ring ridges are clean. good luck!!

Rent a ball joint press from auto zone. Easiest way. Better than hammer n vise.

They use a different bolt pattern. There're spacers to convert them to the TJ bolt pattern

Jk is 5x5
Tj is 5x4.5

There is never a reason to remove the rear sway bar on the OEM rear suspension...
