Ripped out all the carpet, and bedlined the inside.

Pulled all the interior, Cleaned and sanded, and rolled it in

When i installed my lights I noticed that the PO had already had lights on the windshield and took them off. When he installed his wiring he drilled one hole through the windshield frame for the wires. So I just reused the existing holes. The problem is that I couldn't find the right size grommets anywhere so i just made my own. Here is how I did it using solid rubber stoppers.

Well I have a 3.5 inch rubicon express lift ordered, and 33x12.50 tires, with new wheels. I'm gonna buy new dif covers, and a winch. Exhaust, and a cb. Upgraded stereo, some brighter backup lights. I might buy some tube doors also. Thats all for now but will probably add to the list as I go.

Looks Great! That 3.5" lift and tires made a huge difference in the look of your jeep.

I was thinking of doing a 3.5" but have 31" tires on it now, and looking at yours think my 31's would look too small.

I also yanked out the stock exhaust and put in mbrp offroad exhaust and installed a CB. next thing is probably gonna be a 1 inch body lift, tummy tuck, tube fenders, mount rear shocks outside the frame, and beef up my roll cage.
