Well today I got 2 of my 4 KC lights wired up but it got to cold to finish the other 2 and I've been looking for a TJ style shifter knob but couldn't find one I like so I made one out of a 1" Kobalt impact socket

Shouldn't have responded without reading the following pages haha. Good work on getting 'em out. Those torx bolts are a real pain.

got the rock lights mounted. I dont like where I put the switch so I'll move it tomorrow. got my dynomax in the mail this week but wont get around to install it for a couple of weeks. and I orderd some other random junk to upgrade/fix other stuff. need to finish my alignment in the morning and repaint some metal. but next weekend will be the big one, 8.8 install.

Nice thanks! going to have to do that. Put some polk 4x6 plate speakers up front and the 6 1/2s in the sound bar are to over powering. have to have the sound almost all up front to even it out so maybe these will help a bit. and anyone know what i can do to the sound bar so it will handle the bass a bit better?

take an old pillow, rip it up, use the stuffing from that shove it in the sound bar.

Today, the Wrangler received new EBC Green Stuff brake pads and R1Concepts rotors. And as an added bonus, a replacement driver side headlamp mount/bracket.

Finished putting the Jeep back together after the Raptor Liner.

Next mod is the Sunrider Flip Back Top on the stock soft top.

A second hand outdoor shop. I figure it's at least 10 years old. It has a air compressor,radio and flashlight included! Maybe they are on eBay?

Painted my rusty door handles last night using good ol' truck bed liner. This stuff is awesome.
I took the doors off and I feel like it made it way easier than it would have been had I left the doors on my jeep.

Before:


After:


You can kinda see where I touched to see if it was dry when it clearly was not. I'm not too worried about it.

What do you guys think of painting my faded fender flares with truck bed liner?
