Could you explain how you mounted your front tag a little better?, I currently have mine zipped tied to the bottom roller on my winch. I'm waiting on custom tags from the mva which I assume will be pretty popular and don't want them to be that easy to steal.

Changed my rear diff oil and found this:

Obviously, not exactly like that, I disassembled it to get better pics.
So I drove to Pull a Part, and snatched a temporary diff from a ZJ ($30), so i don't have to park it for a few days.
Fun times, fun times...

Wash, wax, cruise top down and another few coats of the bedliner... That stuff is annoying to put on.

Yea so after rotating my tires this morning I had to put my them back on the axle where they came from, I got a shimmy/vibration that even re-balancing didn't get rid of

Actually I've never been able to rotate the tires on it without getting a vibration/shimmy

Not really what I did TO my TJ today... It's more like what I did WITH my TJ today.

I pulled my demo car out I it hibernation nest do I can start working on it! I realized after I pulled it that I still had the e-brake on and it was still in park Put my little 2.5 still pulled it really good until it started bouncing...

(My buddy Derek had a great idea to re purpose the excessive lighting on the front and use them as back up lights and as you all know the stock back up lights are not that great)


2012-03-31_19-14-32_132 by Vosty3, on Flickr

And yes the blue wally world special handle is on the ridiculous list of must change items... Stock Stereo Before

2012-03-30_20-10-01_644 by Vosty3, on Flickr

Went to Portland to see Wicked with the wifey ended up @ Car Toys and made them price match there Amazon "Car Toys" Price of $120 instead of the marked $190 and saved on tax (OR) also had them install a couple chameleon dvd headrest's that came out of my 08 Scion XB. We picked up two of these decks as my wifes 89 VW Cabriolet project we are knee deep in as well...
2012-03-31_19-11-05_34 by Vosty3, on Flickr

Had to throw my wifeys Cabriolet in the mix. Consider this Jeep "His" and her Cab as "Hers" she does not like anyone driving it but her...

The Turtle Wax Product worked fairly well on restoring the plastic I ended up using it on everything that was plastic

2012-03-31_13-18-01_721 by Vosty3, on Flickr

Bezel Before

We ended up using parachod in case my plate falls off

Finger Nail polish grip tight ftw? bahaha

2012-03-31_14-34-56_445 by Vosty3, on Flickr

Happy with the relocation

2012-03-31_14-59-04_871 by Vosty3, on Flickr

Overall happy with the new fresh look we got rid of a lot of wiring issues the PO had. In fact none of the lights on the Jeep were working when I purchased it the only thing done correctly is the winch... We cut out all the wiring out and made a shopping list for next weekend ;D Never finished and Just Empty Every Pocket is ringing loud and clear...

Your new tires look great, I like your rear bumper and swing arm. I have a Body Armor bumper I'm getting ready to put on. I ordered it with the swing arm pin and was going to order the swing arm tire mount at a later date. Can you tell me if you are able to ajust the tire mount closer to the rear of the jeep when you don't need to carry J-cans??
Oh I'll have to say you got a good deal on your tires. If I remember right I paid that for 4 Duratrac 31X10.50's. Shoot by the time Goodyear replaced all my shocks, stabilizer and did an alignment...I paid a pretty penny.

Recently bought a stock 2000 so today was the basics. I took the hard top and doors off, put a bikini top on, installed relocation brackets for mirrors and moved the mirrors. I also took off the milk jugs.

That's the gloss black, I ended up using satin when I finished the entire dash. The gloss turned out just a little to shiny for me. I'll take pictures of the dash in the morning.
