New bumper. Also installed wheel spacers on the front and raised the third brake light to accommodate the 32 inch spare.

Sold my old bumper and test fit my new one. I really need it to warm up so I can paint.

Work great. Spidertrax 1.25". (took the photo before I put them on.) Had them on the back already because there was obvious rubbing with the 32s. Front was rubbing only in hard turns but didn't want it to rub at all. Plus with spacers on front and back it looks better, IMO.

Took the windows off for the first time since getting the new top and took it up into Cajon Pass. Totally gorgeous. And got a nice big jeep wave from a fellow tj'er :-)

Took it to get the new lift installed. Still waiting on the phone call to hear it's all done. He had some problems with rusted ole bolts and stuff. Thankful I didn't try this in my garage.

Installed a new JCR bumper and got PO'd when my fog lights stopped working after rewiring them up. Hoping i just need a new relay.

Also installed an on/off switch for friend Fuse #4.

re-torqued the bolts on the JKS MML installed last weekend along with the 1in body lift bolts... I had also replaced the 2004 body bushings at the time of the body lift with new rubber mounts - noticeably softer ride...
plus, now that the jeep is lifted even more and you can't butt-slide your way onto the seat, finally figured out how to get into it without looking like an crazy person...

Watch out for the little two legged one....I still haven't found the key for my lug nuts from my little one's help. A hammer and socket were used and nuts replaced before I got a flat and needed the key.

Yesterday I got the brake pads replaced. Which was a replacement of the new brake pads I had installed on Tuesday.

Not sure what happened, but the new brake pads that replaced the bum brake pads were bad. Don't know how, they were new pads. They were running so hot they bent the newly shaped rotors and made the tire smoke.

Had to tow the Jeep down to the shop.

Fortunately, the new replacement replacement pads seem to be working fine.

Sounds like caliper stuck. Mine did it also right after replacing pads. New caliper and rotor and all was well

Paint was chipping above hood hinges. A little sanding primer and paint made the difference. I like the black anyways think it breaks up the silver nice.

Had the same things happen to me a few weeks ago? Except mine was at 330 in the morning coming from the bar.. Bad timing lol
