Those look pretty good in there. How's the seat height?

Thanks. Now debating on whether to dump my practically new 31's for some 32's so the lift doesn't make my 31's look "goofy"!
31/10.5/15's for 32/11.5/15's ????

The are about the same, the originals were in bad shape and I'm only 5' 9" so I like the fit. They may be a half inch taller than the stock seat.

I like that, going to pull out my backseat, so this would be cool way to do it....Also, what length of jack? 48", 54", 60" ???

I wanted to do away with the nasty old Torx, and add some hooks on the front bumper. I bought these for my 2000 TJ:

Grade 8 Steel Flange Bolt, Phosphate & Oil Finish, Hex Head, UNC Threads, Hex Head, Meets IFI-111 (2002)/SAE J429 (1999)/ASTM B633 Specifications, 1/2"-13 Thread Size, 1-3/4" Length, Partially Threaded, Pack Of 10: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

So far I have replaced most of the front bumper bolts (one is still giving me trouble, hope to get it out tonight) and the threads mesh perfectly. I had to really work the ratchet to get the old ones out, and these went all the way in by hand with little resistance at all. Watch the prices though, I paid less than $5 per pack a month ago, so they apparently vary quite a bit since they are $10-11 today.

Removed all 6 Torx bolts in the front bumper today.... I used a cheater bar and it made them real easy to remove...... FYI

Talking What I did to my TJ

Today, my stickers came in!
You know, instead of saving for Metalcloaks, A roof rack, relocation brackets...
etc... Or typing that essay for American Lit, I played peel the sticker on my
Dirty [insert explicative that refers to women in a brothel]...

Much fun! Enjoy.

Haha it's sad.... But I know exactly what you mean bro. It's like there are so many small things we can do for cheaper, we wanna do all of those so we are always doing something to the Jeep. I have that virus myself. 'Sigh'. Nice sticker though! KCCO!

The worst part about those $20 mods is that they all eat the hell out of your budget for the big stuff...

Hey bud...next time save your money and put a jack under the diff. All you have to do is take the weight off the bolts in the CA. Easy as pie....and labor is free!

Don't u still need to be able to let the rear axle down or move to take out the control arm? Plus the weather in lower Mi sucks we have a bunch of snow and slush every were, and they only charged me $75 to do it

Got my dash back together with the bedlined pieces. Now I have the speaker grills out to do them next. Will probably do the glove box door and grab handle after that. Seriously thinking about doing my vents in camo to match my camo pool ball shifter.
