top this!

...after we got back from the creek yesterday, i asked my buddy to help me finally install mod 3, the soft top.

here's a couple of install pics:


parts included in my $300 deal of the century...

front/rear door surrounds and hardware (plastic molding that the top attaches to), top (mine came assembled, thank God), tail gate retainers, tail gate bar, roll bar brackets, and window inserts.







install all mounts



attach top to roll bar bracket (top being assemble already was a life saver)



massage into place...it'll take a while to stretch (took us about an hour @ ~76F)



zip in windows






...i like it

4wheelparts off of 1960w...

...want a 5% discount? ask me how.


the disco's should be here tomorrow before noon. JKS "quicker" disconnects...p/n 2030 (for 0"-2" lifts). hopefully it won't be raining, and i'll be able to install them. looks like it'll only take about 30mins or so.

oh yeah...it's on AND off, now!

mod 18 - JKS "QUICKER" SWAY BAR DISCONNECTS P/N 2030- well, today, i went to go pickup the jks "quicker" disconnects from 4whlprts by my house. i ordered them yesterday, and they were there (w/ free shipping) by 12:20pm when i went by.

they took about an hour to install b/c i had "issues" with the upper bolts to the oem sway bar links. also, it took me about 5mins to figure out the verbiage of what way the inserts were supposed to be mounted.

it's all good, though. they're mounted


jks "quicker" sway bar disconnects p/n 2030 (4wheelparts...$145 w/ tax)













...oh, and i splooged bearing grease all over one of my favorite pair of shorts

a BIG day

lots of stuff in the mail:

mod 19 - DAYSTAR DASH REPLACEMENT
- i needed a place to keep my cell phone other than the cup holder.

(ebay auction...$31.52 w/ shipping)




mod 20 - SKID ROW OFFROAD SKID PLATE - that goofy looking plastic skid plate is a pain in the *** to work around when under the jeep, and i freaking loathe those plastic screw retainer pins, any excuse to get rid of any plastic retainers is good news to me (especially outside the jeep)

i like the manufacturing and finish of the plate, BUT i have to admit: the look in the magazine is a bit deceptive. i thought it hung down a bit more to cover the steering components a bit more.

(quadratecDOTcom...$81.98 w/ shipping)





oh...also, look at this buildup of dirt that was not visible, but would surely start corroding your frame rail there. wash thoroughly between there





mod 6 - REVISITED - the other day out in the trails i encountered a tight spot where my antenna got hung up on a branch. i wasn't stopping to save the antenna to spite my jeep, so a long-story and a 45*-angled-antenna-driving-down-the-highway later i ordered these:

firestik ss-3h heavy duty stainless steel spring and new firestik ii hand tunable antenna




...i definitely recommend getting a spring for your antenna if you have the ultramount setup. now, i'm just worried about the spring/antenna cracking my taillight. :|

yeah, i like the looks of the mopar "jeep" ones...i just don't like the cost $120+...

...i hope i can find some that someone is trying to get rid of. on the cheap, of course



here's something to ponder:

yesterday, when i was under the jeep installing the skid plate, i happened to look up at the steering stabilizer and saw this






...it no looky too good


just called 4whlprts and they said they have a procomp replacement in stock for me to pickup if i want ~$38ish + tax. from what i see on the net that's a fairly good price (plus i'll get 5% off of that, anyway).

so what do ya'll think? replace? ...and if so, replace with procomp or with a different brand?

Dont get procomp...I'm not impressed with their shocks or SS's. If your still dead set on it. I'll give you mine, if you install a SS on my TJ along with my quick disco's. :-) It probably has 5k miles on it. Only a few months old.
