So I installed some 2" coils on my TJ today, but I think it lifted a little more than advertised...

Repainted my interior. Wow, what a huge pain in the ass. I had done it about 18 months ago with Duplicolor fabric and vinyl paint and have had nothing but trouble with it. I've had to touch it up several times and it's not very durable at all. I redid it with Krylon Fusion. Hopefully it will hold up better. I used a stripper wheel on a drill to remove all the old Duplicolor that I could, then cleaned the hell out of everything with Xylol. Put 5 coats on everything. The satin black I got is shinier than I expected, but it looks worlds better. Time will tell if it's more durable.

I did the inside of the tub with Herculiner. It's held up pretty well, except for the spot where my heel rests. The mess I got into today was redoing my dash and door panels. I had bedlined the center bezel and it was the biggest pain of the day, by far. I had to redo it because it looked like crap. It was a nightmare getting the bedliner off

Hell yeah that's the way to go that's what I'm doing if I ever need to get rid of my carpet or rhino line it since one of my buddies own a rhino line shop, but dayyum I believe that once that's put on its a pain to get off! Unless you have a pressure washer which I seemed to spray a lil spot of my rhino line on my fender flare with that.. Smh

Ouch! Yeah, that's why I checked out the knock right away when I heard it. I didn't want to ruin a new shock or fuel tank skid. And my annoyance at little noises wouldn't let me ignore it. Haha

Thanks! I've got Goodyear MTRs 35" on eagle alloys plasti-dipped. The hood louver is from Poison Spyder Customs. Heres a video of the install. http://youtu.be/zCTEj0STN4s

Don't know where you're located, but check out Dirtworx.com He builds them right here in Ontario California. Nice quality and excellent price. I bought a rear with tire carrier. Solid bumper!

Knocked my rear view mirror off so I glued it back on. Fixed a rock chip in the windshield while I was at it.

Over the last two days have put on a Quadratop. Was extremely easy to do, kudos to Quadratec for great directions. Installed my winch, went with Badlands from HF for budget reasons...and mounted an ammo can under the hood for winch 'stuff'.

Took the stock mirrors off and put some aftermarket ones on. Took the tube bumper off the PO had on it and put a smittybuilt on in its place. Painted the door hinges with bed liner and did the dash light mod. Busy day today!
