What did you do to your JK today?

Every other section has this stickied so I thought I would start one. Forgive me if its in there already but I could not find it.
Anyway here's what I did.
After removing the different cover for a routine fluid change I decided to paint the cover, it needed a little touching up so I thought I would go ahead and paint it red. I already had some farm equipment paint on hand, I'm pretty sure it will hold up to any temps that might be reached.

Cleaned

I finally got my TrekTop NX soft top on yesterday afternoon. It was almost 70* here in OH yesterday. It looks awesome, but I didn't get to drive the Jeep today.

Drove it to work today is all, I will wash it after work today. Last night I threw it on the lift and service the engine and rotated the tires as well as hooked it up to the motorhome to double check my lights/wiring. We are hooking it up to the motorhome Saturday morning and heading to Moab/Monument Valley for the week.

Cursed at it and climbed all under it trying to find out what the hell is vibrating/rattling at speeds above 50. Seems to be coming from the drivers side front. Can't figure it out for the life of me. Going to retorque everything this weekend, but I believe everything is in check. If it still does it, planning a trip to the dealer sometime early next week.

Last night: Ace sliders and a mesh grill insert.

Today: Installed a Pioneer 4400 head unit.

Later this evening: Kenwood Exelon 8" sub is going in the factory enclosure. It'll be powered off of an Alpine amp.

When it arrives: Metalcloak front bumper, Terraflex Leveling kit, and I'll finally get the winch off the garage floor.

Enjoy the grind fest. I had to remove a lot of material from the washers to get them to fit.

Super happy with the results though.
