OK, the locker went in and I went for a drive. Climbs better in 2wd than it did in 4wd. It seems like it is pushing alot during acceleration. Figured it would be a little different but pushes much more than I thought it would.

Installed two tow hooks from tractor supply on my front bumper. For only $25 for both of them these things are beefy ( and they come with hardware )

I dig those 2.5l stickers at the top of the page might have to get some

My Jeep is my daily driver, so I pulled everything except for the front seat (and seatbelt of course) and removed/prepped the surface for a week, an hour to a couple hours each night, then did the tape/install/clean-up during the weekend. My rough estimates below....

REMOVALS - 3-5 hours (timely because I took a lot of pics; I was afraid of not being able to put it back together again after the mod; plus removing sound system was slow-go)
SURFACE PREP - 4-5 hours (everything I read said when you think your done, do it more)
TAPING - 1 hour
APPLICATION - 45 minutes (total time mixing and spraying, 4 bottles)
time waiting between applications - 4 hours (the temp dropped on me on Saturday, so I had to wait longer between coats)
CLEAN-UP - 2 hours (pulling tape, putting everything back together...easiest part)
VIDEO BUILD - 1 hour (OH YEAH!!!)

I have a couple light spots in the front floorboards due to the difficulty of getting the sprayer in the right position, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do about it yet, we'll see.

Probably way too much info....oh well.
haha nope just what i was looking for! i needed an idea because i am going to be doing the same thing here soon except with roll on bedliner. i have to get my driverside floorboard fixed first it has a rust hole in it . but thanks for the info and awesome vid once again!

i agree we are like 100000000 inches behind our average snowfall this year(maybe not exactly that much but close enough). id say we have got at most 30 inches so far thats super low for here.

To do 3 quotes in one post just build one at a time and just copy it, cancel the post, quote the next one but paste the first above the 2nd and so on

There's an easier way. Look to the right of the quote button. See the little quotation marks? That's multi quote. Click on each post you want to quote, then hit the reply button and the quotes will be there.

On the mobile app, click the bar that is on top of each post and click "select". Once you have selected all of the posts you want to reply to then hit "menu" if you have the android app then "multiquote". I just did this whole thing from my phone.

I drained the transmission and filled it with Mobile 1 10w30. Everyone always says how much better they shift with synthetic. So far, it shifts smoothly. I'll know better in the morning when it's cool. When the transmission was cold, it was harder to shift into 2nd than any other gear. I'm hoping it's better.

I've almost finished rattlecan bedlining the exterior of the Jeep.
I still have to do the tailgate and I'm gonna spray the hood again because it was the first thing I did and I sprayed a little too much in a couple of spots.
Here's a crappy cell pic:
