I fixed the rear frame metal part that was rusting, sanded off all the rust, repainted it, and I spray-painted the bumper thing thingies, the name escapes me right now.

Before and after shots:

I gotta say it turned out a lot better than I was expecting. lol

Who'd you order it from? I recently had to do the same thing. I went with Promar Precision Engines. Runs like a champ so far.

Umm, today, well over the weekend, i did new fenders, soft top, trunk lid, and wind jammer. Have to redo the trun lights as the keep shorting out on me. If any of you guys have an idea of what lights to use and the proper wiring that would be a great help.

Had my 04 Unlimited for 1 week and 2 days now. FINALLY pulled the trigger on new speakers, satellite radio and FM Modulator from Crutchfield. I've tried to figure out how I can justify lift kits, new wheels and tires, exhaust systems, intake systems, new seats, new doors and just about everything else under the sun. This was what I could both justify and afford!!

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried replacing the front and rollbar speakers and pulling the fuse on the sub? Does it sound alright? I got the Polk DB series speakers.

Quick Fix for drilled holes

The previous owner had drilled holes in the rear of the tub to mount and antenna. I had this laying around the shop so I decided to use it to cover the holes (among other things)
