Glad you have it. We've had it for a couple of days. I was tired of it, too. Now, my doors are coming off this PM.

Step 1 (Last night):

Step 2 (Last night):

Step 3 (Tonight):


Also have to re-route wires for the passenger side light. I know the OEM ones are still on there, but I'm actually going driving lights (210's) + fogs (the new ones on there now), which is going to require some bumper modification to add new mounts in about the OEM position.

I drove around for two years with evap leak before I found it. Don't know what year yours is, mine 03 canister in rear. The hose under drivers side where it transitions to metal line split on top where you couldn't see it from laying on ground

Yeah, it's just one of those things that's gonna make life so much easier.

I got it specifically for rewiring the factory rubicon lockers so I can do F&R independently.

Finally got around to doing a few small projects. Went buck wild and took a jig saw to the fenders. Wasn't too worried about ruining them since they looked like junk lol. Sprayed a few coats of bed liner and added some trim and there it is! Not the straightest lines but good enough for me also plastidipped the hood piece because it was heavily faded. Not too shabby for 4 hours in the sun

Can't argue with the value proposition of making it myself, but I'm way too OCD to construct something like this. It would take me much longer to make it to the standard I want it than it would just to work some OT to pay for the box . Count this electrical engineer out of soldering, crimping, etc., I put in my time with that crap for school/work and I ain't going back!

May not what I did to but for sure what I did with my jeep today. We had a big ice storm and 4 inches of snow in 48 hours so there were a lot of trees down. My jeep is not a SUV nor a truck, it's more like a MPUV ( multi purpose utility vehicle ) haha. Towed all the trees and branches away lol

The alternator and maybe the starter could be attributed to mud, if you go through a lot of sloppy mud that gets into the engine bay. And jeepss kind of eat batteries like no other vehicles

Bummer. I just did the same a couple weeks ago when I put a new skid plate on. Very expensive.

The po of my rig did not take care of it
Bald tires and shocks that are failing
I've replaced a lot of electronics/starting systems in it just to drive it to work

I spent the day working on my jeep. Since I blew a shock last weekend I decided to upgrade to fox shocks, then found a set of Currie springs on Craigslist that I couldn't pass up, so with those I had to add an adjustable rear track bar! Guess the re-gear will hold off for awhile.

Went out last night and did some of my first true "wrenchin'" on the Jeep. Put in RC seat risers and removed the milk jugs from the rear bumper. Couldn't be happier with the seat risers. I've felt like the seats were low ever since I bought it. Now it feels like a jeep! And it felt GREAT to say adios to the milk jugs.
