Very nice! Were they difficult to install? Considering the same for mine but man, pricey! Did you get them in the $180 range per cover?

Not very hard to install, just very time consuming if you don't know what your doing (like me lol). Hardest part was keeping the gears clean. And the were in the $185 range from Northridge 4x4.

Fixed the hi mount brake light. Been bugging me for a bit but didn't want to start tearing apart wiring. Turns out all it was was a dirty contact on the tub and a burnt contact on the bulb.

High mount third brake lights are for losers.

Polyfill'd my sound bar and installed some Pioneer 6 3/4 speakers. Sounds a million times better, now for a new deck.

Well today I changed out my water pump. And while I was at it I went ahead and replaced my thermostat and belt. And after I finished I was under my jeep and say that I had lost a bolt to my right sway bar disconnect. So I went to the parts store and got a few grade 8 bolts and replaced both of them and got a spare set just in case I loose another one. And also took my doors off since its 81 deg here in central Arkansas. I would have taken my hard top off but they are calling for severe storms tonight.

Practice towing my Jeep around my neighborhood and the highway for the first time with the new towbar before I towed my Buddy's YJ to the shop a few days later (In the 'RAIN', of course!). This way I can figure out what is needed for the run. Only need several zipties to hold down the wire harness.

Well, it's a bit windy and I need the time to let each coat dry and my wife is out of town, so I didn't get to spray the plasti-dip on the grill as I had planned today. However, I did figure out (for the most part) how to get the grill off. So maybe next weekend I'll shoot it.

Instead, I installed my tailgate cover.
