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!!

Nice! The bolt pattern is still the same? If so you got lucky

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.

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...
