you can still take the bolt out, just bring a wrench with you. or a socket and driver. only takes 5 mins.

Wow you're right you definitely need some. They're pretty cheap. Or you can just yank the bolt out like golden said and strap them up.

I finished my stereo install this morning, along with final tweaking of the new trektop NX..





Next on the list is to make the sway bar discos and install the super leds to match the stereo.

I'd really like to get one of those Trektops, but dang they're kinda pricey! Looks awesome though. My factory soft top is starting to get a little haggard.

Finally got around to painting my rims.

Before:



After:




I finally got to try out using playing cards instead of masking tape around the rim.



Works very well, covers the outside edge nicely.



Also touched up my frame and inner wheel wells a little bit while I had the tires off.

It wasn't today..but I did it last week.

LED Mod to all the dash lights now everything is red except the radio and I'll be replacing that next month. Even put red LED in the dome and floor lights.

Installed a BDS 2" suspension lift (Got it from a friend cheep) that on top of my 1" body lift. and stock 31" to 33" tires. I'm sitting nice.

I definitely felt a litttttttle loss in power on the switch from 31's to 33's, but nothing too terrible. Just find myself shifting down from 5th to 4th a little more often.

on most highways when i have to go 60+ i leave it in 4th bc soon as i put it in 5th it stays at 60 and if im at 70 and i shift to 5th it will slow down to 60 oh well im waiting to get a d44 for the rear end and im going to put a locker in it and gear it for more power until then im going to just drive as i am.
