Ordered LEDs to change my cluster to red... ordered a couple random colors to play around with the highbeam, blinker, fog light indicators etc...

Hopefully they'll get here soon.

I don't think the thief had the brain power required much less the physical tools.

Ordered new upholstery for my very nasty cloth seats. I'm going to do it myself. Hope it works out okay!

That looks awesome! Can you tell me the size bulbs, quantity and location for everything you did?

Nice. Personally I would fine the high beam one a little distracting

The one for the high beams is not really that bright, I don't know why it came out looking that bright in all the pics I took!

I've learned that with an older Jeep from the northern midwest, you need to triple the removal / installation times when doing work on it.

When I did the suspension upgrade, all but 1 rear shock bolt was rusted & broke.

Trying to install the Bushwacher flatties; 4 of the screws that hold the stock fender flares are rusted so the insert spins in the sheet metal.

The front bumper was a breeze.

The rear bumper is soaking up a lot of PB Blaster. One of the jug bolts on the rear had to be drilled out.

There was a bracket on the back of the radio that wasn't mentioned anywhere in the instructions / manual which made radio removal a bit of a chore.

The headlights were a breeze.

I thought I would be able to finish installing all my goodies over the weekend, but it's Tuesday now & I'm still a workin on it.

I know... pictures or it didn't happen. Yup, I'll post the B/A pics as soon as the job is done!

Changed the oil. It was time, that stuff was dark.

Bought a new, black Bestop Bikini Top for my YJ.

Found a place to resew the seams on the stiffeners along the edges and replace the velcro on my old, original Bestop for $25. Now I have a backup.

Received my Tuffy security drawer for my LJ and 20 minutes later it was installed. It is not as much room as the security lid would have been but at least it is made to fit in my LJ. On the plus side though, I can still keep my rear seats in with the drawer set up.

Pics will come soon.

You seem to be missing a chunk off the bottom.

What are the internals going to be?

I got an alarm system. The guy at the store basically thought I was an idiot because nothing is power locked on it, but it still works when someone hits or moves it.
