Magnitude Engineering Hinge Bushing Set - Black

Between the tube doors and the soft doors, the door hinge bushings were pretty chewed up. Thanks to Tanimal for the replacement recommendations. The Delrin bushings installed easily, fit nicely, and hopefully will hold up better than the stock. They only come for four doors so we have an extra set that will go to one of the girls for their Jeep.

Definitely a good investment, I split the 4 door set with another 2 door guy. Really happy with them so far. Getting the old ones out was brutal though.

Post Turkey Day Ride with Patriot Jeepers

Took it out for a Jeep run for the first time in a couple of months. There was a nice variety of old and new models represented. I have to say the JKs certainly held their own and then some! It was a chilly 17 degrees all day but everyone had a blast.

Thank you. I learned a lot by following builds that came before me. A couple I followed like it was a religion until they went over to the dark side and turned their nicely built Jeeps into trailer queens.

Seriously, there is a lot of good information and many helpful folks on this forum.

Drake Billet Antenna

TOGM just hated the look of the Craven stubby antennae so he ordered a Drake billet replacement. I canít tell that there is any difference in performance but it does look better and is still out of the way of the mirror.

Used left over parts on daughters Rubi

While the daughter with the white Rubicon was home for the week-end TOGM took off the TJ mirrors (he converted earlier in the year when she got her soft doors), installed our spare set of door hinge bushings, and put her full doors back on for the winter. He also installed the stubby antenna, and added a set of flag decals. She was a happy camper!

Still working my way through the thread, but:

Maybe I missed it, but which brand cab cover did you get? Are you still happy with it?

It is the Bestop All Weather Trail Cover. We leave the top off all summer and I can throw it on if I know a rain storm is coming. Easy and completely waterproof .... one of the best investments.
