Finally registered after a few months of lurking and getting info. This is my 2nd TJ, had first for 11 years. Didn't do much modding other than easy bolt ons (mirrors, bumper lights) to that one, but now I'm doing lots of work on this one. While the new one is in great shape, I'm working my way through all wear parts with lots of help from here. Done: tie rods, rear DS u joints, axle u joints, hubs/bearings, shocks, diff and pinion seals. Up next: Ball joints (yeah, yeah... shoulda done when I did hubs and u joints), front DS u joints, then new CAs before getting into a lift and tires (and probably gears, ugh).

Only mods so far is shortening the front bumper and welding in end caps, getting half doors, and building a 3.5" high lockable storage shelf on bottom of trunk area (rear seat removed).

Thanks for all the help so far, and look forward to more!

Mick
