What in your opinion are the benefits of running the lockers in 4 hi?

I just bought my 07. Looking into the grill mod, looks awesome

You can go faster with all 4 wheels pulling vs limited slip.

I'd like something exactly like that. You got another lying around? Or maybe I could buy that one from you if they are easy to cone by in your area?

My latest cheap mod is in the mail as we speak. I wanted a new gear shift handle. I looked at the pool ball ones that are for sale here. But what I really wanted was a T shift handle. A Hurst to be exact even though my TJ doesn't have a Hurst shifter.

So....Google is my friend. I looked around yesterday and found a dealer on Ebay that had them for $9. They got a closeout deal from someone.

I ordered 2 of them for just under $30 including shipping. One for my TJ and one for the car that actually has a Hurst shifter.

I did my own switch about a year ago and so far I haven't had any problems with it, but also I turned it of and well...kinda forgot to turn it back on last winter so............I don;t know if it even works anymore LMAO.

I needed more interior lighting. So I added some superbright LED lights to the 4 holes in the factory roll bar. Used a rubber grommet and a drop of superglue to hold the LED to the grommet. Then simply pressed into the rollbar holes and tied into the floor pan lights.

Decided I DIDNT want a murdered out, monochromatic Jeep. Decided to do this to break it up a bit. Thinking bout adding some color to the wheels as well, considering painting pockets of the wheels orange...

He might not have door frames if he has a supertop. I have a supertop and am now considering that mod. Looks sharp!

Edit: or a hardtop

I ran the wires down the trim on the windshield and behind the dash. Then spliced into the floor illumination lights under the dash.

So i got some new stuff for the jeep today, nothing to big, heres the list machete, bowie knife, rock lights, a real grenade just cleaned out, and a canteen. I am using the grenade to put on my stick shift, and then i am going to fab it to where the handle on the grenade is a hand throttle. the lights are going underneath the jeep somewhere, they were only 10 bucks for two with the wiring and switch, i should go get another one, can never have enough lights. the canteen i mounted on the roll bar, i also mounted the the bowie knife on the roll bar, i havent found a good place for the machete yet though. let me know what you guys think.Any ideas or suggestions. I will post pictures of everything when i am finished. I still need to get some recovery stuff, and then throw it all in an ammo can and put it somewhere
