No pictures, but Saturday washed & applied my favorite paint sealant to the paint, hard top, and wheels. In keeping it "on topic", for today I did the ever popular polyfill in the soundbar and subwoofer mod (dash to come next weekend).

I was looking at all my options and I can find a lot of Dana 300s and I've got a line on a AX15 Does anyone run that set up in their jeep? If so can you offer any advice you have?

Just ordered a new distributor. The upper bearing in mine is getting a little sloppy and allowing the rotor to drag on 2 of the lugs.

Just replaced my clutch master cylinder, something popped in it tonight and it engaged and disengage at a different point in stroke than it had before. I had to push extremely hard to get the safety switch to allow me to start it. Anyway all is good now it starts fine now.

Stuffed my soundbar and my woofer with poly-fil. Was going to remove my faux chrome strips from my bumpers but I ran out of daylight.

Finally put my VDP bumper kit on the jeep today. Well, my friend ended up doing it while hanging out in his monster garage. Love the look.

UPOL Raptor Liner....woohooo!!!

Finished the last coat of Raptor Liner (tintable), it is still curing since the temp dropped from 70s all week to freakin' 50s here in Tex...my luck. But, outside of my normal mess ups, it looks pretty good. Will put the seats back in after a couple days, except for the back seat....gone for good.

Painted my grill with spray on bed liner and mounted an ammo can to the inside fender well. I am going to put one on the other side sometime this week. Oh yea and I polly filled my sound bar. I love doing small fix ups to my TJ.

Don't know why it posted two pics of my ammo box and not one of my grill. Let's try this again.
