I am guessing there is a tag like on the rear but I know someone will know right off the top of their head. Thanks
i used the same stuff on the front and back, but it's not a cherokee. don't know if that matters.

well actually I didn't word that very well. I was actually asking about the wrangler diff fluid. I am not good at differentiating when I am talking. I will be talking about something and when I think about something else I start talking about it, at least I know what I switched over to, too bad no one else does!!

Lets see!

Went out and got a new set of seat covers -promptly mod' em so as to have em fit the tj '06 seats neatly and tailored looking.
Sewing skills are a absolute!

Got new rubber mats front and back so as to keep all that WI. salt out of the carpets.

New flex tube, blk tape, dremel tool with bits, wire ties and odds and ends to do some new wiring and stuff.

New 14' tow chain.

Still to do:
Pick up gloves, tow strap/s, bag, com-a-long, switches for oem dash locations, some alum bar, steel, 4+ off road lites and looms of multi strand wire.


It's great to see how everyone is been so buzy with updates, upgrades and all out builds.

Well, my new rear bumper I had made was delivered yesterday. I have completedd about half of the finish work. By the end of the week, I should have it done and will post some pics. I really am happy with how it turned out.

Also, I installed the CB yesterday, but I haven't done any of the finish work on it yet.

Uh, I smoked my clutch really bad while trying to climb a steep upgrade.....

Not sure that counts as something FOR my Jeep, but it is definitely something I did TO my Jeep. On the one hand I have a lot more confidence about what my Jeep can do off-road, but I have much less confidence about my actual driving skill.

Took out my Alpine CDA-9827 head unit and KCA-420i iPod interface and installed an Alpine CDA-9857 with dedicated iPod cable. Still using my XM though.

I got the 9857 from my daughter who totalled her car a few weeks ago. I'll probably be selling the 9827 and an older Alpine I have.

You just reduced the value of your vehicle exponentially! Who would want a jeep with a LSU decal?



Just kidding...

The back window is tough, I actually broke the thread on the seam holding the zipper in so now I do the rear window first and hold the pull from both sides so I don't have to yank at it. Helps if it's warm and in the sun, too.

Cleaned up some of my wiring on my daylighters, and added some more heatshrink to sections that could use it.

And you can tell that I need to scrape the bugs off them and the windshield, baby needs a bath

Put gas in it, starting to feel like a mod. Cost me fifty dollars to fill up at $3.15 a gallon

Looks good, Amerijeep. And I don't think the paint is tacky, black was the right color

I had it built. This guy build's 'em at a great price and does terrific work. It mounts to the crossmember and the frame. Those little studs on the left are for a Hi-lift.

Hey Jack, I do realize that this is the most I ever spent on my jeep at one time...

What sucks is when you realize that greatest number of dollars you ever spend at one time keeps getting bigger and bigger.

It does look good bro.

I pulled out the backplates for my rocksliders and sanded off the rust that had already formed after just one week, then painted them with silver rustoleum to match the tub and reinstalled them.

I have been working on plans for a very similar bumper for a while. I guess I need to get them done and post them up. I hope to build me one of these this summer.
