traded a guy these corbeau seats for my stock ones. he wanted to be able to tilt them and get his kids in the back. loaned him my rear seat since i'm not using it and hes getting a blue one this weekend from his buddy that might match my new seats better
These things are hard to get into with the large lip on the side and the steering wheel but real comfortable might have to get some seat risers. I don't think these are the regular Cobeau rs seats most people run in their tj's i was looking at some of the threads about them and no one has these giant lips and i cant figure out what model these are on the website probably outdated on their website. Anyone Know what seats they are? Plan on refinishing the seats with my grandmas partner guy can do anything. But i like them but definetly a learning curve i got to get used to climbing in to them.



put these genright back up lights on not sure how much i like them maybe when i get out to the woods i can see how bright they are might need to lower them though.



got my mudflaps put on and fix it ticket signed off and paid for California highway patrol doing their job

took them right off after that.

Any tips for getting the rear bumpstop rubber bumpers out of the cups on the rear? I would prefer not taking out the springs if I had a choice; but I cant get those stupid things to break free. They turn with some pliers, but will not twist out. Also, what size bolt is for the rear bumpstops? Im just gonna put some hockey pucks under the bumpstop and extend them a bit.

Also, adjusted my rear pinion a little.

Mounted my over the mirror switch console I built. I tried to upload a pic but I can't crop enough to get it to load. I have to figure how to turn the resolution on the phone down and maybe it will load than

Jeep randomly shook uncontrolled after cornering this morning.. No clue, checked out my suspension and steering no issues. U joints maybe? Trans and transfercase need new fluid hopefully no big chunks of metal come out...
But, removed spare from tailgate, getting anxious with my cargo basket half done. Want warm weather to paint some parts and plasti dip the whole thing!

What kind of shacking? How did you check your steering? U joints won't cause uncontrolled shacking.
