That's amazing,
Today I got in some paracord and then made some grab handles pics of them installed in the morning or well afternoon, both only took me about 5 hours and a few blisters (had to learn how to do it)

Installed a 2" BDS lift. I started on Saturday and ended up breaking off one of the rear upper shock bolts. That took it into Sunday and with the Super Bowl it was not finished. We are getting quite a bit of snow in KC today, so I finished up the lift last night.

Wish mine would decide whether or not it was going to die and stop being such an emo. Works fine when the jeep is driven at least once a week but dies in the cold months if you leave it for 10 days to 2 weeks.

Mine was acting pretty weak in the mornings during our last cold snap. Considering it was an 8 year old walmart neverstart (I can't believe it lasted that long!? They've always failed me within a couple of years. :-/), I went ahead and replaced it about 3ish weeks ago with the O'rielly's rebadged Deka Intimidator AGM.

That's what I put in my Jeep, dual terminals too for my battery relocation plan down the road.

New SYE/used DC driveshaft installed last night with a new transmission mount. No more vibes, and Jeep drives like new again. Now I can't stop looking at it while I'm at work. Gave me just what I needed.

Set up an appointment to drop the jeep off at the stealership to address the many leaks it has.

I also emailed ECGS to check the status of my axle. I haven't heard anything in weeks and they still haven't charged my card that I used to order the axle... Hoping there wasn't any hiccups in this purchase.

Yesterday I had my stock tire carrier welded, where it had cracked. It appears I had backed into something at some point, or caught the spare on ledge, and bent the carrier mounting bracket, which then started to crack. It's back on now.

If you moved your gas tank you can just tuck them in tight where that was. Otherwise maybe reroute them into the tub?

Hopefully tougher than the WARN stuff that is on my jeep...

As soon as it is warm again, I am going to have to pull it all off and refinish it.

Thanks man, Ill keep my eye on this one. Mine has to be replaced though because the connector that goes to the back of the bag melted when the bag deployed. But may still take it apart and play with it just to see what its made of.
