Installed the blue tooth obd2 code reader to use with the torque app. Amazing for under 20 bucks. Hell, amazing for any price.

I went with the popular and very cheap elm327. Found on eBay or amazon for under 20 bucks shipped. Gets great reviews when used with this particular app(only on the google play store, ios does have similar tho) and worked flawlessly in the 1 1/2 test drive so far.

My jeep got hooked up more today. Ultimate floor liners, zombie out break response stuff, smitty built gear tail gate bag set up and hella e codes.

Yes she was. Lol. Married with no kids yet so I get spoiled. Got some mods for my pistols and some kick ass old man type slippers too. Tomorrow is install day for the jeep. I had some other stuff waiting too.

There are more expensive ones which I'm sure may be a little better or maybe American made. I read review after review on them and the app I planned to use and this one was great priced and every one said it worked great.

Not today, but a few days ago. I installed my Dick Cepek offroad lights, fixed my stereo bezel & dash speakers. The previous owner wired them to the dash. I cut some adapters out of sheet metal, to fit the 3"x 5" speakers. I also installed a new Skyjacker steering stabilizer and rerouted all of my winch leads. The solenoid box is under the hood. Now I just have to wait for the wireless remote to get here. Excuse the shop. We just built a house & I haven't got it straightened up yet.

Love it! Unfortunately, I "had" to get mine the JK Model. But it is ok, it is the Rubicon.

Well I installed my or fab stinger which was a pain. The holes for the mounts were off by 1/4 inch. Those had to be drilled.

Then installed my smittybilt rear classic. Also a pain. Decided to just not do the inner brackets for those of you who know what I'm talking about.

Just did my rear bumper also with the tire swing and Yeah, those inner brackets suck. Skipped them as well.

A good idea would be to replace the side and bottom bolts with grade eight to make up for the loss. That's what I will do
