Sun Performance and I didn't actually install them, so I'm not sure about the mounting.

They were on the Jeep when I bought it. They're pretty solid though

The wife was away, so I had time to play...... I changed the oil, differentials, and transfer case fluids. Also changed the spark plugs and air filter. The plugs gap were way off, and totally filthy, so it was all needed. So my Jeep is a little healthier today. See what tomorrow brings.

Replaced my windshield. My friend came over and did it within 10 minutes. Defroster and cracked windshields do not mix.

I installed a "Glow Shift " temp gauge in my 2003 TJ. I had to install a special pipe in my heater hose that I bought from 4WD.com. It's a cool temp gauge that lights up in pretty colors. LOL

Painted my headlight bezels, took off the milk jugs and removed the side steps. There's a little added bonus in the picture to, doesn't hurt.

Ya I totally agree with you. Havnt had the time to figure out how to take them off. I could just tape em but I have to take the back ones off in order to put on my Smitty Built flat fender tubes. It's all rusted so I have to work at it.

What I ended up doing was just shoving note cards between the tub and the flares as best could and using painters tape to get where I couldn't, then covered the whole side with news paper. A few coats of rattle can and they looked great!

Last night, with the assistance of an LED headlamp and a 7 lb hammer. I took out my stock sway bar links and installed JKS Quicker Disconnects. I also took off my stock stabalizer and put on a Rancho RS5000. It feels brand new! I could have slept in it!

Ya I'll have to try that out. I need at least 3 or 4 hours to get it done and with school and work it's hard to clear out that time slot. Definetly needs the touch up though. The hardest part will be installing the tubes.

and the answer is:
the color of the trim obviously...[bumpers, side mirrors, tag bracket, fuel cone, have never been offered in khaki with red enameled hardware.

I think its purty.

November 11 TJ MODS

Not today but over the weekend my brother and I rolled "Black Ice" into the garage, with the assistance of a few PBR's and Coors Light we installed a 4" Skyjacker suspension, 4x100watt Hella foglights, new E3 Plugs, full synthetic oil, a few decals, and topped it off with some beautiful new rubber. I think this weekend I'll rough up and paint the gloss black fender trim with bedlinner then spray flat black.
