Those are comfortable looking seats. Who's are they?

Very nice. For that key, I would go the the best locksmith in the area. You don't want some kid behind the counter in a hardware store learning (at your expense) how to cut your new Jeep key.

Are you asking about my seats? If so, those are the “Limited Edition Tomb Raider “ seats. High back, recline! The perk was they came with burgundy stitching which matched color of Jeep. And yes, I had to modify at brackets to get them to work. Nothing like being able to recline in your Jeep every now and then!

Rattle can paint job with rust-oleum camo sand and matte clear coat. We'll see how long it lasts. Now I have no excuse Feller to add fender flares. Thinking of painting "JEEP" on tailgate either black or OD green, but I'm open to suggestions.

I suggest you put your tailgate hinges on the right way. Sorry to say, but they are upside down.

Good thing he has a rattle can paint job.... A couple of sprays and everything will be good.

Picked up a brand new sunroof ($50) for the hardtop. Guy never installed it so his loss is my gain. It’s a nice one and “Made in U.S.A.”.

My vote is for chocolate brown to complement the sand color.

That’s a nice looking pattern, what’s the backlash reading?

Why do I own a CJ? I like to “Balance the wrench and the steering wheel”

Ty .007-.008

I forgot which pic I posted but the drive moves to favor heel in some teeth

The drive side is the flat side, the coast side is more slanted. I guess maybe it is slightly favoring the heel end, and it would be preferred to slightly favor the toe end, however; both sides are close to being perfectly centered. With .007-.008 backlash I wouldn’t be afraid to run it. Others might fine tune it more, but I’m willing to bet if it were a shop doing the work, 90% would run like it is.

That's what a former driveline calibration tech told me on here. Also I think it looked like it was favoring because of perspective and not showing the whole tooth. I think I'll just run it

Local tech school's security officer (maybe 5 blocks away as the crow flies) called the local veterinarian and located me as being the dog's human.

The dog broke free from her leash Thursday night during a neighborhood walk----then she plays this game "you almost grabbed me" (she'll bolt by you with the house doors open and play the game all over the neighborhood) (we have a big back yard and a doggy door both dogs can use)

The game usually lasts over 2 hours and ends with her reluctantly jumping into anyone's open car door (usually ours).

This time we could not find her. 3 separate occasions between midnight and 6---many times thereafter Friday/ Saturday/ Sunday, We reported her missing to the humane society.

Maybe the torrential downpours made her realize that "There's no place like home". So far, it's eat and lay on the couch. Of our 2 dogs, everyone gives her the attention even though she has the worst misbehaving.I picked he up in Willy, with a harness and 2 collar's tied on various Jeep fixtures. I took these Willy pics after I delivered the evil one back to the house.
