Now I just need to have it powder coated. Only problem is I need to find a way to take the handle off the latch for that and be able to put that back on so it still works
Man, that's killer, you did a great job!

Peeled the tape off the letters on my black n blue center caps.





Then slapped em on.






Also, took my door panels off, popped the tumblers out and then pseudo re-keyed my door lock tumblers to match my ignition key. Locksmith had no pins/wafers so I have a few "dead" spots, but now one key unlocks all doors, not just the rear tailgate.

I'll prob never lock them, but I can if I want to. I'd think with the missing wafers about 15% of TJ owners can unlock my doors now.

Thanks guys.
I used this.
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/co...o-pics-952705/
Pulled mine out of a 1500. It is a pain in the butt to get the entire harness because it runs behind the dash on the drivers side. I got the entire thing so that I had plenty of wire to work with. Same with the temp sensor mounted in front of the radiator.
Wish I could have found a jeep mirror since I am prewired for it but this will work and it was only $7.

Took the hardtop off and put the soft top on. Now the rear sits what seems like 2 inches higher

Got a Lange Hoist A Top so I can take the hardtop off for spring... probably jumping the gun a bit on that idea.
