Repainted all of my wild urban camo dash pieces to flat back, along with the stars in the center of my rockstar wheels. I also removed my Daystar switch panel, and moved my 4 switches to the center stack, between the two vents.

Scratched the hell out of my wheels in a mud hole that I knew better than to get in. Also, bought a set of 5 cooper STT 37s for $800 used with 4k miles on them! Waiting on the lift now.

There should be two cables comin out of the floor pan with little crmped on ends. These go into that bracket. Trust me, its a lot of fun!!!

I like where you put that.

If I didn't have my soft top I would do the same thing

Finally got around to making some brackets for my rear brake lines. I had meant to do it when I lifted it a couple of weeks ago, but forgot.

I had some 1/8th inch Aluminum plate laying around, and just cut a couple of 1.75"x4" strips. Actual drop is about 3"

I didn't do anything especially hard, but I like how it looks. A couple weeks ago I made a bracket to move my steering dampner up after I squished the stock one and installed a new one...





I wasn't a fan of the colors, so took it off today and swapped the boot and painted it...



New compared to old...



Re-installed...

I put on a 3.5" AEV premium lift. Lots of wheel well space to fill up now, so I will have the itch to get rid of the chrome wheels and get some 35s to fill in the space. I would post a pic, but I still can't figure out how to do it. I do have a photobucket account, but still to stupid to figure it out.
