Installed a Kargo Master Congo Cage. Picked it up off of Craigslist for $200.

Get the bed liner spray paint at Auto Zone its about 8 bucks a can. I think rustoleum makes it. My friend did every thing on his rig that way. He loves how it turned out, very resiliant.

Honestly regular maintenance works these are some great engines.
Have you changed trans fluid, transfer case fluid or the differential fluid? If not might be a good thing to do

I sprayed rattlecan bedliner on the exterior of my Jeep.
Basically the front half is done and tomorrow I'll start the rest.
I've been wanting to do it for a while and so far I like the look.

UPS man delivered the rebuilt head. Got it in 1 day, I'm impressed. Of course, it's only coming from 3 hours from me, but still...

Drove an hour to the parts stores and picked up gaskets and everything I need to finish up. Of course now the weather is turning crappy and I have several other things I need to do until I can get my jeep back together.

I'm chomping at the bit here

Past few days I:

1) Bought Pro Comp 1 3/4" front coil spacers, haven't put them on yet. Anybody know if this is a pretty easy install? Will I need a spring compressor?

2) Changed out the front diff fluid. Back is due for it too, but the front was leaking.

3) Replaced the pulley on the idler, hoping it was the source of my noisy engine since it was cheap and easy. Turns out I needed a water pump, so replaced that too.

I like that shifter knob! It's the only modded auto one I've ever seen.
I keep my jeep knife in the pouch on the back of the passenger seat, but kinda like the idea of a mounted sheath....

good on ya, mate!
