I just installed a CB. Cobra 19 Ultra III. $35 at Walmart. And a Firestik FS-3, $20 at Radio shack. All together, with coax and antenna mount, it was only about $85. I mounted the radio on the back of the center console. Not the most user friendly location, but I wanted it out of sight.

Started pulling my axle apart to put in the new bearings and seals. I'll try to take pics when my hands are clean.

A couple days ago (hence the dust), I installed a dome light cut out switch for when the doors are removed. Wired into where the fuse used to live.




Then, tonight, I just got done with the obligatory painting of the headlight bezels. Sorry it took me so long!

Just spent a couple more hours in the garage, "customizing".

Being that my license plate is located in the center of my spare tire, I didn't like that the left tail light/license plate light was shining down on nothing. So I just removed the lens and covered the clear bottom part on the inside of the light assembly with electrical tape. No more unnecessary lower illumination!





Then, I noticed that after painting my headlight bezels, there was still a little bit of chrome still on the Jeep. The door locks. So I masked them off and hit them with a couple coats of flat black.





And while I was at it, I found a place to keep my shovel and hatchet. Just used some nylon chord I had laying around and tied them to the vents on the inside of the tailgate.

Finishes rebuilding my axle. What a pain in the behind, but it sounds better now. I replaced the carrier bearings and the axle bearings and seals. Now she's sitting in the drive getting a bath

Ok running behind a few days ago cleaned and shined my 06tj




Then yesterday purchased new toy for trail riding not wanting to scratch up my daily driver.

Today checked all fluids and took my son for a spin then came back and found a large nail sticking out of one of my tires. Took and had fixed tire man said it was a railroad spike about 5 or 6 inches long when he showed it to me.
