Nothing worse then gray plastic flares and by far the easiest tweak to make your rig looking fresh! Looking good dude!

Put a coat of paint on my sliders and mounted them to see if I need or want to do anything else before I Bedline.

Oh yeah, sorry! Doing a frame swap. I just bought it and the frame was way worse than I thought. Found areas where previous weld repairs were done but I wanted to replace it before it got even worse, esp before lifting it and wheeling. I'll have to post some other pics of the rusted areas in detail. Picked up an 01 frame for $600, that I still need to prep.
There is 182k on the 4.0l so if I can make it happen I want to maybe swap that too...

I started to put my trektop on today, I got to the last two steps and realized that the rear window slide was not stitched in correctly and that made the zipper fall apart.. So I had to take everything off and go back to 4wheelparts and get a new top but round 2 went very well. I also put my new smittybuilt neoprene seat covers on. All in all the jeep feels like a new jeep and I'm satisfied with how much money I spent

Got new tires today, yay! but now the spare doesn't fit back on the holder, apparently it's too fat and the threads don't go through. I just bought the jeep 3 days ago, now I know why the spare didn't match any of the other tires.

Now I have to figure out how to mount the spare back on, anybody know how to do this?

Sorry for the random question.. But I got into a wreck yesterday. Idiot ran into me when I was at a stop light and they hit my exhaust and bent it good. I am wanting the banks monster exhaust.

Does anyone know how this sounds? Is it loud at all? And if you have it on the 2.5, please put in ur 2 cents!

I stuffed the sound bar with poly-fil

I hope the kids don't miss their stuffed animal


Also a couple weeks ago I got tired of my washer fluid spewing out of the nozzles on the hood (after a cold night and then the sun warms the hood up) so i drilled a small hole in the cap of the washer fluid bottle
