Let me know how it comes out. I got a small tank laying around and a ton of plumbing stuff in the shed and I want to do some kind of setup.

the normal 2.5 gallon tanks (like from VIAR or WARN) donīt fit beside the TC after installing a belly-up TC skid. thatīs why i bought a smaller 1.756 gallon tank.

i hope that i ned the smae fittings with the stronger ARB compressor. and hopefully "white93ARB" willsend me the compressor and rear ARB diff cover as soon as possible.

i canīt wait to install all that stuff.

no actually I have a friend who had it on her jeep for a few years and about a year or so ago a branch fell on the corner of it (see hardtop questions thread). so she was going to sell it to me but then rethought the times when I helped her move and with some other stuff and said I can have it cause she likes "going topless" anyway and her soft top is easier to take on and off.

Those grab handles are a life saver. If I didn't have those when I hurt my knee, I wouldn't have been able to get in or out of my TJ.

i wish i had thought ahead and done something like that nicolas-eric but i was tired from working today and excited to put my lights in. best way i can describe it is my upgraded lights seem brighter and whiter. i went for a short drive tonight, a very unscientific test, and i would say they are at least 50% brighter than before. the "beam" seems to be wider than before and the light went from a light yellow to brighter white. the test for me will be how long these bulbs last before burning out. i had piaas in my honda civic and while i loved the light output they did not last that long hope my ipf's prove me wrong.

results were similar to the before and after pics you can see here: http://www.4x4xplor.com/ipf-h4.html

what i dont understand is why you installed H4 lenses and headlights.
my TJ came with H4 headlights when i bought it new.

i only installed some brighter H4 bulbs before the winter.


is that the matter why a friends headlights are that dark? he has a US TJ that he imported himself.

Service Day here. I started early servicing my 04 TJ sport, I changed the spark plugs, cleaned the throttle body, cleaned & re-oiled the K&N, changed the oil & filter, lubed the entire suspension, replaced the p/steering fluid, replaced the steering stabilizer, replaced the rear sway bar bushing end links, replaced the auxillary transmission cooler lines. Tomorrow I'm having the dealer do the messy stuff, tranmission & transfer case service, the tires rotated & rebalanced, the rear brakes cleaned & adjusted along with the brake fluid replacement. Hopefully it should be done by noon, that will give me time to get a good wash & wax done by dinner ! I love my Jeep! The next service is the coolant & thermostat replacement, all the hoses & serp belt plus the diff fluids. This little TJ had better last me forever!

Got it running again. I still cant believe the problem was so simple. when it started it was ticking loud as heck even after it warmed up. I changed the oil and it quieted down the ticking alot but its still there. gunna open it up and check it out this or next week.


repainted my shrockworks sliders. learned that muriatic acid work wonders for heavy rust removal.

wired up and installed my cb, still gotta make a mount for the antennae.

and I took off my snorkel. gunna take off my tube fenders this week to grind the part that mounts to the firewall to align them so they are exactly flush with the tub.

I washed and waxed mine today. Thought it'd be a good idea to clean it up before I start tearing it apart. Now it's time to find all the stuff I need to bedliner the inside. I'm also going to get new seat mounts, new front seats, and take out the rear seat.

fixed and painted my fender flare(s) (thanks steel ) from when the chains broke my stock ones... now if I can only get the white bulb connector for the turn lens wiring and the lens I'll be good to go.
