Rolled on some RUST-O-LEUM bed liner on the entire tub and bumpers

Used the rattle can on the Mirrors, Fender Flares, Door Handles and Center Console. Just made everyting look new again and added a little corrosion prevention. Looks Great no tho.

If you want pics of the finished product PM me.

It was a nice day out, so I crawled underneath and checked all my fluids, greased the tie rod ends and upper balljoints, and inspected everything.

I've had a very light clunk when I went over bumps. I found the spring retainer on the right front was loose. Also, the driver's side rear sway bar link was loose. Tightened those up and no more clunk.

Also found the inner tie rod end has slight movement where it bolts to the drag link. The tie rod end itself is tight. I pulled the cotter pin and tried to tighten the nut. Of course the whole thing just spins. I tried using a crowbar to put pressure on the TRE, but no go. I'll pull it out back and try again with an impact when it dries up. Not that I'm worried about getting stuck, I don't need to rut up my back yard (any worse than it already is)

Picked up some good used Procomp 35 12.5.15. Eagerly waiting for the brown truck with the lift to show up!
In case you're wondering, take out the seat. Three in the back and one on the roof....old school baby!

Great buy.. I Have the rear bumper like that and love it..

dont thank USA, did you look to see how much you actually paid? I could go on for a long time about taxes, but this is a Jeep forum.. but glad you got the cash to buy the bumpers..

Looks great! Love the personalization with your name too!

We painted my buddies Dakota with that and I think it's awesome! I'll probably do my tj the same once I spring for new fenders(mine have usual rot)..

Replaced the stock headlamps with some KC 4230. Wow! What a difference. Might eventually swap the bulbs for brighter one, but right now I am happy. Also took it snow drift hopping.

I decided my reverse lights wernt bright enough and went to harbor freight and picked up a weather proof work light for about $10 and wired it into the reverse lights wire so now when I put it in reverse I have a much brighter light to see behind me

It was a really cheap, easy, and helpful mod
Took me about and hour

Added bling - Harley Davidson hitch plug.

Also, fuel spilled on my fender flare leaving yet another discolored spot. I think it's the ethanol that turns the plastic a light gray. Back-to-black helps restore it but not completely. Think I'll cure this with a couple cans of spray-on bedliner.

Thought about her, looked at pictures of her, scrolled amazon to buy her something nice... Ordered some wire connectors and switches, and I don't even remember what else.

She's in Alabama, I'm in Georgia. Gotta rush home Friday night to rip open amazon and quadratec boxes!!!

I didn't do much but someone broke into my jeep last night, they didn't take tools or any thing of real value, except they stole my handicap placard. It's a $3500 fine if they get caught with a stolen placard. Is it worth it to get a vaulted glovebox to keep registration and insurance card? Sometimes I leave my stereo faceplate in there.

If your to concerned with theft then I can suggest the ruddy underseat box, have also heard good things about the glove box. The glove box is probably an easier install. I keep my stereo in my underseat box.

I got my front end alignment done today after my new 3.75 Rough Country lift and new shoes. 15 x 10 ultra rims, and Falken Wild Peak AT's 33 x 12.5 x 15. I think I got it all at a good deal.... $1,960.00.

That price also included 2 rough country grab handles and the sliders/step in the pictures.
