You think that is bad for brakes... Drive my tj once. Lol my pads are worn terribly and rotars are warped too.

So busy last few days, dont have pics of when I repainted the steering but, it just looks clean and black now... simple. as for the other mods I got into.

Did the clamp mod to my sway bar so it won't offcenter anymore. it kept doing it.



Relocated 3rd brake light... to center cap.



The wooden softball bat mod:



Dring reciever, I painted the pin for the Dring black the rest was powder coated, very nicely in fact. Also picked up a locking hitch pin which I painted. It was chrome



Added this box to hold my spare tools that dont go in one of my tool boxes, and whatever else I need to put in. Its kinda vintage looking and locks, pretty cool. I have it set up so the lit just pulls off the top instead of hinging. Cause I would have had to mount it higher for it to open.



Added a "WF" decal, no pics though.

I did a few other maintainence things, got measurements for the sliders I am gona build. and just took care of her. I think she liked the attention.

Installed JKS adjustable track bar. Front Axle is now centered. Of course steering wheel now is way off. Will fix that tomorrow by adjusting Drag Link. Always something to do!

I saw the x2 and x3 and got a good chuckle.

I have no issues with my high or low beams, I can see perfectly fine with them, though I probably lose a slight amount of height above road level. But I havent gotten pulled over (yet, I had my old set for about 3 or 4 months with no issues) and I don't even notice they're there.

Granted I also have 2 other sets of lights, but I rarely run any more than my low beams. No issues.

its not too bad if you have experience.if this is your first time it can be a little intresting.but thats how you learn...worst case you will have to take the shaft to a mechanic to put it back together. the front shaft was just starting to squeak in 4wd and was annoying.

My Dad decided to come visit, and he wanted to bend some wrenches on my Jeep.
We did the MML that I had been putting off, the Advanced Adapter Transfer case linkage bracket that the UPS guy just dropped off, and I gotta say....I dunno if its in my mind or what, but the Heep runs smoother and just plain tighter with the MML.
