yep, summer is here, and I took her out to the beach and realized that doorless is the way to go.

the most expensive part is going to be the paddle latches, with the strikers built in. 80 bucks and pair, and I need 2 pair.

going to do some searching tonight, and see if I can find some cargo netting to cut up and make covers for them.

also researching how to convert my ac compressor to run OBA for the 44's ARB.

going full spool in the 9'' as well....my mind is made up.

also may go pick up some of the smittybuilt TJ G.E.A.R. seatcovers.

and also thinking about rhinolining the floorboards.

I know my 250 44, and 9'' combo can handle 37's just fine, but if I could start over I would have just done 60's all around and said **** it. the only thing that stopped me was the fact that the guys on pirate said it would be much more cost effective to build the 44 and 9'' instead of the 60's, and the fact that the last time I found some 60's here in pensacola the JY wanted 1k for them, and a guy on CL had a pair, one being kingpin, for 2k.

tires will either be pitbull rocker LT's, or Maxxis Creepy Crawlers.

I toyed with the idea of running 39 IROKs, but decided that the 44 wont be very happy with life, and that the 242 may whine as well.

money is starting to flow in now that summer is here, and I hope to have it all bought and sitting in my room soon.

has anyone checked Erics build lately....that ***** is doing a gas tank lift, and comp cut..

I really want a comp cut.

Exactly it so nice and rhino like the floor pans and take the doors off it would be nice, I'm thinking about leaving the carpet out my self but will probably put it back in. I have been looking for something new on the hendges...I jut don't like them there has to be a way to get absolutely 0 sag and still be practical so I'm toying with a few ideas, and let me know about that netting/tube doors!

Also to make things worse looks like the lift/tires will be put off a bit longer due to about 410 bucks in tickets for stuff that I didn't even do(would cost even more to fight it) so I'm screwed

I just picked up a new set of side moldings from the JY, my passenger sides were missing . They are very faded so I'd like paint them, yours look very nice. 2 questions, regarding painting, what paint did you use to make it look so clean? Also, what is the best method for attaching my "new" ones back on the body?

It should be good, 3 link d60/44 some 37's or 38's and beadlocks...maybe a cage or a 4:1 kit

I promise good things though

Also a little bit of body work

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

I just used black gloss from a rattle can... works wonderfully! 3 good coats!

I ordered some new speakers for the jeep, need some new ones to play my summer music with the windows down you know. You need it loud on the highway when you don't have A/C (and hence have the windows down). The stock ones don't cut it with my new-to-me-ish receiver.
