You'll never see a pic of my Heep in the garage. Why? Because there is so much junk...err, stuff in it.



Maybe what I should do to/for my Jeep today is clean out the garage.

Considering a new top, my 12 year old one is a pita to get back on. Rampage frameless, good, no good? Any fast back style ones out there better?

I have the rampage and like it a lot. Most argue that the bestop trektop nx is better and I can't contest since I have not owned one. Road noise is a little loud on the rampage but hey it's a soft top. Hope this helps

I ordered a JKS 1.25" Body Lift, JKS Motor Mount lift, and Moog ZJ Trackbar last night. How long should I expect it to take to install? Can't wait to put it all on!

Ok cool, one vote to the rampage. I'm leaning towards it for the price, but I don't want to sacrifice quality either.
Thanks mate.

Those are the cheap rough country disconnects. Soon to be the last rough country part on my Jeep once I install some Bilstein 5100s.

I just got rid of a set myself (don't know the brand). I'll eventually move on to anti-rock but that's far down the list right now.

Put my TJ in the shop . It's my ag shop at school so I can learn to work on it and no what I have to do next time it happens. I'll get to see him everyday but it still makes me sad that he's not in my driveway

These are all brighter than they look. I can drive by my flood lights alone, in real life, they shine about as far as my dim lights in this video.
These are screenshots from a video, I will post it once I can upload it, I had some trouble earlier... Go figure... :] enjoy!!!
What brand and size? They are freaking bright

You should bedline those flares while it's getting worked on.

Got my JKS BL and MML in the mail today. I am tempted to go install it now but it's late and dark already. I guess it'll have to wait until tomorrow night.

It's on my list of things to do this summer when I'm pulling bigger checks. That and I'm determined to lift it at least a little this summer.

A rattle can on bedliner is only $7 and it's what I used on mine. It doesn't cost much at all if you are trying to do it sooner.

Ok thanks! It was just an idea I hadn't thought that much about so didn't check out any prices. Maybe that can be next on a warm day if we finally get one!

I would highly recommend it. It is easy, cheap, and makes it look much better.

Yeah I've been wanting black flares for a while. It would look way better since its red. It's definitely on my list. Lol

Cleaned my throttle body and idle mechanism. The CEL turned off... I was really surprised by that... Still has a dipping idle though :/ maybe it's the O2s?

The super bright one is a 180w 50" from Amazon... It's TuffLEDs but rebranded as MicTuning and sold by MicTuning as well. The floods are TuffLEDs as well. 27w.

They're a lot brighter than those pictures too!!!
