Lined the tub with Monstaliner, raised my front and rear diff breathers, bedlined
my door hinges with Duplicolor bedarmor and also painted underneath the door hinges with Monstaliners chasis saver. Also fixed my transfer case cable under the center console because the crappy plastic bushing broke so I have a permanent metal replacement in the pics below. Enjoy

Monstaliner full tub pic:

Picture of the transfer case cable link fixed.


I used this for the new bushing from Autozone:



and I also used a hitch pin to keep it in place. It's pretty solid now. Got some extra parts to do the linkage on the underside of the Jeep when it decides to go.


Rear breather was extended up through the passenger side tail light and into the tub:


Front breather was pushing through the rubber grommet in the drivers side footwell:



I then ran it up the dash and the cover fits right over the top of it:


Monstaliners Chasis Saver on the underside of the door hinges:


Here's some pics of the hinges, I also did the hood hinges:


I painted over the hinges as they were attached to the door with the Duplicolor Bedarmor just to "seal" the bolts in place, I really like how they came out and don't have to worry about rust anymore.

My Riddler diff covers came that my GF ordered for my upcoming birthday! Here's a teaser picture for you all with them painted. Also got some Lubelockers and picked up 4 quarts of mobil 1 synthetic 75w90 gear oil. These hopefully will be installed Monday!

Sorry about the delay, been really busy! Here's a couple pics of my front and rear Riddler covers installed!

Rear:



Front:



Seems like the silver gets dirty fairly easy but I still like the look of it! I will be getting a tire carrier very soon...debating between the Teraflex carrier or a bumper/carrier option, hmmm! Stay tuned!

Teraflex hinged carrier ordered and on the way! Need to get a spare 35 KM2 tire and another xD Addict rim! Hopefully you'll all get some pics in 2 weeks tops!

I don't know if you have an auto or manual. Be careful with the RK 2.5" Max Travel. I ripped the front driveshaft boot the within 20 minutes of taking it off-road, disconnected (I have an auto). I went ahead and replaced both front and rear driveshafts. The RK lifts are super-flexy!! Your rig is coming along nicely.

Thanks for the tip and it's really funny you say that because I can feel my front drive shaft is going so I've been looking at the Adams.

Yeah, I'm looking at my (Sam) Adams right now, too.

Love the idea of painting your tops!! I need to do that, mine are dirty/greasy/scratched up from putting them back on when my hands weren't so clean.

Yeah was very easy to do and I used Krylon Fusion plastic spray paint and the stuff is awesome and sprays on nicely!

Here's a teaser picture for you guys .. Teraflex carrier:


Really easy install of the carrier and it is BEEFY. Currently without the spare on it the gate stays open while even on a downward incline so I don't have to worry about it smacking into me anymore. Make sure you have some red Loctite for the install because the directions want you to coat the T50 bolts with it and was kind of aggravated it didn't just come with a small bottle of it considering you are paying 500 bucks for this thing. I was very hesitant on purchasing this thing because I did not feel like it would be able to support a 35-37inch tire but after unwrapping this thing from its packaging and installing it I am 110% confident. I only got the carrier and not the adjustable spare tire mounting kit, I run a 35x12.5R17 BFG KM2 and a xD Addict rim with I believe 4.5inches of backspacing and was told by Northridge4x4 I would not need the adjustable spare tire mounting kit at this time. I have my tire and am currently waiting on my rim so you will all be getting more pictures soon! Another thing I should mention is there are 4 bolt holes on the carrier and I will be using my $3
L bracket that I made and using one of those bolt holes to mount it!

I have that carrier. It's pure beef. The adjustable mount is nice because you can adjust the tire to sit closer to the tailgate.

Great build! You have done a nice job without doing all the crazy bling stuff I see so much of. Very clean looking and balance is very nice with that lift and the 35's. I love the cb mount as well.

If you learned something new today, you had a good day.
