However, you should include the Chevelle in the background at least once.

Here you go VetteDriver . I had to totally redo the front bumper because like an idiot I reused the stock nuts as I did not get the new ones. I then figured out that they were loosely threaded onto the studs on the bumper and were acting as spacers. Not even spacers either, causing it to not line up properly.. Now the bumper is straight, even and back another inch. I felt like such a tool but **** happens. Then I had to remove the rear and drill out the frame holes to drop the bumper another 1/8" and shim the top out about 3/16" to stop it from rubbing and hitting the tailgate. Finally done and I'm happy it's all done right and straight.
I also installed the ipod intergration cable.

Very cool setup (on the Jeep to keep this in topic).

And awesome Chevelle - that is such a classic style.

I installed a CB antenna to the rear light behind the spare and ran the wiring really clean through the rest of the Jeep. Forgot where i put the mounting bracket for the CB itself and had to fabricate one out of a 1/4" piece of steal i found in the garage, then realized i didn't know where to run the power from until i scouted around on here and found out there is an existing hole in the firewall on the passenger side behind the dash. Fished the wiring through the insulation foam with a coat hanger, mounted the CB, and then realized my mic had a short in it. Ran to the local pilot(tm) and picked up another mic thus having to eat my words the i had spoken to my wife "don't worry sweetheart. i have all the parts already, won't cost a thing" than rushed home to put it on...CB success.

Also, for future reference, IF you have an automatic transmission, you can run wires through the firewall where the clutch master cylinder would be. It's covered by a plastic cover that you can use a knife to cut a slot in. The one behind the fender will only get you so far. I couldn't run my tantrum light plug through there. But then I found this solution (on here of course).

Installed my XM antenna on top of the roll bar since my Sirius cuts out way too much. I also installed my new Smittybilt XRC side armor/Rocker guards on my '09 Rubicon after exchanging the first set. The holes were way off, and the second set was just a little off. I used my hand held air grinder to open the hole just a bit. But at least now my 5 yr old can climb in on his own.

I'd post pics, but I suck...

Got my Beach Permit, then had to take her out for a little bit, raining too hard to fish.
