I wheeled it hard for the first time. In the process I discovered I had a locker in my rear axle! SWEET

The chunk of money might get it a Cummins 5.9L under it's hood, or a bunch of parts to build a triangulated 4 link. We will see what happens.

Oh yeah... while waiting for the paint to dry I replaced the exterior window seals on my doors...

Now I order most of my replacement parts from Morris, which has a very user friendly site... but is there anywhere else I can get general replacement parts a little cheaper?

Robert,
I looked at your photobucket albums... NICE Jeep. I see you have a little helper as well. My daughter LOVES doing anything Jeep related... rides, washing, work, whatever.

OK, exactly what is this? A spray on deal, or an actual liner? It looks like there is a sprayed coating, but I see the lip over hanging over. That looks awesome, and you can just hose it out, right?

It's Upol Raptor liner, and it is sprayed on. The lip is just the rail on the tub that we had sprayed to keep from scuffing the paint when the kids climb over... It can be hosed out now with no worries and the places where the paint had worn through and started to rust inside the tub are no longer a problem... I love it. The friend who did it, did his some time ago and it still looks new... Not scratchy, just texture.. I am a very happy girl...

Well, I'm kinda late to this game so lets pretend it all happened today...

Last Thursday evening: Got long distance KC Highlites mounted to the front windshield.

Yesterday: Installed Smittybilt neoprene seat covers.

Today: got most of the MOPAR soft top assembled (bought it after buying the jeep and have to practically assemble the thing from scratch), will hopefully finish it up this week or next weekend.

Thank god for overtime.

Next stop, unlimited mileage/year warranty... not sure if that counts

Today I stripped my 02 TJ's interior to do some serious OCD cleaning. Afterwards I posed her for some pics.
