Sorry about the crappy cell phone pictures, i'll take some better ones tomorrow.



3rd brakelight (14 red LEDs)


Reverse light


Work light/Tailgater defence


Edit-
Also replaced a 100w Yellowstar bulb in one of my Hella 500s that burnt out.
Looks awesome man! You did a great job and you got yours on before I did I think I'm going to re-work mine to put some more LED's in there, yours looks a lot brighter than mine does.

I appreciate the credit Panici and compliments from JEEP97TJ.

Got rid of my old radiator and put in a new shiny repacement.

Old Radiator was shot if you couldn't tell

New one in place.

Looks much better.

I am jealous of all you manual tranny jeep people, cuz tranny cooler lines on a jeep with 140000mi are a pain in the a** to fix

My girlfriend gets irritated with the amount of time I spend on the jeep.

"But I broke it"... then she says "it's always something isn't it"

As of right now she would prefer that I spend more $$ on the Jeep than her.

I call her-

"Hey, gummi, what you doin'?"

"Nothin', where are you?"

"At the ranch."

"Still?"

"Yeah."

"I thought you were gonna come home by now."

"Yeah, well I was... but you see, we were doin' the creek on the way out and I landed on a rock and I sort of broke something..."

"AGAIN?..."

Changed wiper blades to winter wiper blades. Also this past weekend I put my new winters on and they definitely ride different. Almost like having suckers on them. Can't wait to see what they do on ice.

Installed the Durango steering box. With the old one it was getting to the point that I wasnt sure if my wheels would turn when I turned the wheel.

Pulled the rear fender liners (for the first time), and then went to Krown to get it undercoated.

Traded my hard window sliders for soft uppers and cash. It's nice being able to open them and actually get airflow in the Jeep vs a small crack after sliding the glass forward. I decided to put the carpet back in for the winter.......huge fight and around 2 hours later its almost in correctly. The area around the parking brake is near impossible to get the carpet back in, as well as to the left of the console because you can not get access to it.

I cleaned it up pretty good and rotated the tires too. The front KM's wear quick, I waited a little too long again..so that had me a little ticked. I think I'll try to be consistent and rotate at least once a month.
