Thanks. So how would I google it? Factory five spoke wheels on 2000 Wrangler?

Slightly off topic for one moment... I chuckle every time I read this thread's title. My twisted mind paraphrases it as, "What are we doing today, Brain?" Same thing we do every day, TJ. Try to take over the world. MUWAHAHAHAHAHA!!"

Well let's see what I did. It took me and buddy 1.5 hours to do all of this.

Took off the spare tire and spare tire carrier (someone rear ended me and it's all bent)
Got a new carrier
Found out that I need to modify my carrier to raise my spare up about an inch and a half
Started drilling the holes for my new bumper and found out that they didn't line up
Drilled them out with a handy little dremmel tool looking thing to make them line up
Dropped the tank to put the bolts in
Realized that only half the tank would go down and it would take too long to do it all tonite
Put the tank back up
And put in only the outside 4 out of the total 10 bolts that hold the bumper on for now

Now I'm just gonna wait for my tailgate to get fixed, my rear shocks to get fixed, and my tank skid to get fixed then I think I will try it again and put my spare back on!

Whew! That was a lot to say in one breath! All done! Wait! One more thing!
Damn Chinese CRAP!!!

Stuck, thanks. Bulldogs are kind of my personal mascot

Fourty. I will call it a dumby tax. I took the top off and forgot about the wiring harness. As I went to disconnect the harness the plastic tab broke and I lost my patience, figuring no harm would be done I clipped the wires leaving piggy tails to rewire later. Well now nothing works... I rewired and still nothing.

Basic Maintenance. Replaced the serpentine belt. Discovered I really need a longer ratchet extension. Made a home-made extension with the 15mm, Hex adapter, and long hex tool. Looked ridiculous but it worked. So many noises are now subdued.

Completed the installation of my Tom Woods SYE / CV shaft, and rear UCA install. Got my pinion angle adjusted with no vibes!!! However I must give credit to a couple of my Jeep buddies and a BIG THANK YOU to Tom Woods. Tom helped me with a few minor issues along the way. If any of you are looking into the SYE / CV shaft conversion, I would highly recommend Tom Woods - their products are proven, and their customer service is impeccable!

Man that sucks! I only have basic knowledge of wiring stuff so I really can't help you there but hope you get it all worked out!

New Rampage frameless top

Installed Rampage frameless top - For the second time in 24 hours!

Jeep newbe here. I rushed home from work yesterday afternoon as soon as my new top arrived.

I started taking off the old top and frame around 3:30 and finished installing the new top around 6:30 - the whole time racing against the setting sun.

The top didn't look as neatly shaped as some of the pictures I had seen, but I figured it would shape up as the fabric stretched on the Jeep.

Well, early this morning I decided to watch (again) a Youtube video on installing the top by Auto Shepherd and observed about a half dozen things I did completely wrong (the written directions that come with the top are nearly useless). So I went back outside right after the sun came up and completely reinstalled the top.

Looks much better now. It seems to be a quality product. The sailcloth material looks great, and matches my new upper door skins.

Just installed the new rock sliders yesterday.... man the first 3/8 drill hole hurt the most but after that it was all ok . I also added two additional cigar lighters to my TJ. If anyone wants to do this message me and Ill show you how I did it and where I installed them. In todays tech age I found that one plug wasn't cutting it for me.

Took all my carpet out today and cleaned the interior like crazy.

Removed the back seat and seatbelts.

Installed front seat seat risers. Feels so much better sitting higher for wheeling.

Gave lucy a bath.

Next, after the gym, im putting on some decals and painting the flares black.


Pics to come!

if you take off your hi-stop theres another sweet mounting spot for the antenna. plus you can run wire thru the hole in the boot once hi-stop wiring is removed.

I added a blue dot to my hi-stop light. The pictures don't give it justice.
