Mounted a Master Flow MF450 air compressor with synergy mounting bracket to master cylinder. Ill wire it up tomorrow. It seems pretty solid. I'm surprised of the lack of clearance between the mounting plate and steering shaft; about a finger's width. Does anyone know if the steering shaft articulates much with the suspension? I tried loading suspension crawling up a tree stump and then turning the wheel. Didn't hear or feel anything. I also picked up an ARB EZ deflator.

Steering shaft goes between the steering box (which is mounted to the frame) and the steering wheel (which is mounted to the body). The only articulation is that which is provided by the flex of the frame and the flex of the body mounts. The JK has a stiff frame but mushy body mounts, still, it's unlikely you'll see much articulation of the steering shaft in practice.

Was camping this weekend so didn't put it on. Cargo top is still being finished but I'll be attempting the fastback install tonight!

Installed Teraflex Hinge - still using the factory carrier. I have 18" wheels and 35" x 12.5" tires. This thing is SOLID! I actually climbed up and stood on the tire - no bouncing. Even kept looking in the rearview to make sure it was still attached after driving. No rattles or shakes. Expensive yes, but it works.


Installed a GOBI stealth rack and driver side ladder along with a couple more of Rigid Dually d2 driving lights up top.

(Oh, and went for a 4 day camping/drive excursion into Montana - Going To The Sun road).
Who else has a GOBI here? Mine isn't aligned left to right - and the ladder sometimes hits the hard top on hard bumps - how do I line it up straight?!?)

I have a ranger rack and haven't had either issue (although I have a soft top). I also have their high lift jack mount and the jack comes in contact with the top at times, but it doesn't seem to do any damage.

Good input. Thanks.

Yeah, I got an email from the place I ordered my extension, and they were out of stock, so I took that as a sign. I cancelled my order and will be rewiring this weekend. I'll post my results.

Removed my backseat today after work. I know, no biggie (actually took less than 4 minutes). But wanted to see the space before ordering my cargo mat. Yep back. Seat is in the spare bedroom now. Lots of room!! I love it!

I put name sticker's on my windshield today. DAN (me) SAMANTHA (wife) Daniel (5yr old Son) CAMERON (2yr old Son)
This is part of my Dedication to my Son Cameron, who sadly passed away July 8th. I miss him so much, and now I get to see his name in front of my eyes every single day.
I still need to talk to somebody else about doing something else on the jeep as a dedication to him. So more to come.

steering in over the week end. I kept getting a clunk in the steering. I couldn't figure it out so, I thought it might be rubbing. I went to 4 WD in Columbiana Oh.. I told they guy what was happening he came out and looked at my rig. He actually crawled under the jeep and had me turn the wheel. The track bar to the frame bolt was loose. I forgot to tighten it. How embarrassing., I thought it was really nice of him to do that. So when I got home and went to tighten it I noticed how much slop was in the stock bolts. I replaced them with 9/16 bolts instead of metric and no more slop. Anyone else have trouble with the stock bolts.

18 feet of coax should be used at a minimum this is for proper performance of the cb

Sorry to hear about your boy! Very nice touch, I was watching a show with my son (11) the other day and I had a tear in my eye because something had happened to one of the little boys on the show. He looked at me and asked what was wrong, I told him that he would understand someday when he has kids. God Bless you Dan, keep his memory alive and hang in there
