Prepped the tub for the bedliner tomorrow. Fiberglassed a couple of rust spots, removed a bunch of screws that held down the carpet from the previous owner. Tub had actually started splitting around the bolt holes for the seat, so I welded them up. Sanded and cleaned it. First thing in the morning I have to tape everything off and get started rolling.

Thanks Billy. I actually have 2 helpers. My son doesn't stay still long enough to help. He does love to ride though.

I pulled the floor pan plugs out and hosed the dirt out of it today I knew trashing the carpet last month would have bennies

Now to find that last little rubber plug, can anybody say the "D" word?

I finally put a new tire on the back it needed it so bad. Blew my mind how they did it though, never seen it done before, we took it to my friends buddy and the tire wasnt gripping the rim enough so we couldnt fill it with air.

they poured gasolin in the tire, lit a match and BOOM filled it up almost all the way, i was iffy about it at first but it got the job done.

Today I committed blasphemy. I brought it to a carwash to have someone else remove the 1/4" caked on mud that was on every square inch of the Jeep. When I pulled in, they all made faces and noises that reminded me of when X-Zibit drives a busted up car into the West Coast people on Pimp My Ride.

Just gave her a new set of eyes! IPF 920H4 headlight replacements. Hopefully will allow me to see better at night!

Got them from Northridge 4x4, $150 shipped.

Put the back seat back in after letting the Raptor liner set up a little more. Now I just need to put the top back, and take some pics...

Today I cut off some pieces that were getting in the way. I guess this really screws my chance to put it back to stock.

Scrubbed my jeep down after I squished a raccoon. It was rabid. Was walking on the freeway during daylight
