I got my plates yesturday but with the ARB Bull Bar, no where to put the front plate. Searched the forums (<-- Yes I actually searched the forums instead of posting a new thread and found the D-Cell Maglite clip. Just finished and it is quite sexy and very easy to do. Thanks all for the advice. Can't wait to do more real mods.

Small tune up today. New oil, and Autolite XP[insert#]. Changed out the tps coz it got too wet washing the block. Tomorrow I clean out the TB and IACV. I want tonka to purr this weekend.

Oh and got a new dry element filter cone to round out the tune up. Any other suggestions? I already did a break and PS flush.

Got my sliders finished up this morning. It went better than expected the body mount bolts came out easy thanks to pb blaster. I've got to go get a couple of washers to space the front body mount down the 3/16" that the sliders spaced the back two

Thank you! and I've heard good stuff about that plast- dip. I also painted my mirrors but that was a couple months ago. Planning on doing the grill with some truck bed liner

Woke up early this morning and put parts of my dash back together before I went to work...hahaa. I had to redo them after a previous owner's attempt to use "interior paint" on the fading and scratched air bag cover. I took it apart and cleaned the crap out of it then used Plasti-dip on anything that didn't clean up well. As for the folks that say Plasti-Dip is a pain for interiors and such...I don't care. hahaaa. So what if it's a little tacky and cloth from a rag may stick to it...my Jeep is Rhino'd and I clean it out with a pressure washer

I tracked down yet another noise/rattle that has been bugging me for a few months now......

I knew it was somewhere in my passenger seat bracket but since I could only replicate the sound while driving I was never able to figure out exactly what it was. It ended up being right here.............



I cut a piece of rubber hose and stuck it in there till I can figure out something more permanent. Any ideas would be appreciated. It seems like the bolt that slides in the track has worn down the inside edge of the track here at the end just enough to make it rattle anytime the Jeep is running/driving.

Spent two hours here finding out what to do about issues on this new to me TJ. Bought lug nuts, turn signal stalk, door straps, pedal covers, seat covers, AC vent grills on ebay. Then the Florida rain stopped and went to work on the Jeep. Pulled all the wheels, pressure washed and wire brushed everything I could see around the axles, wheel wells etc and painted them. Pressure washed all the wheels and painted them behind the chrome, put new pads on the front brakes, pulled the drums on the back pressure washed them and adjusted them. Put it all back together. I'm tired.

Yesterday was my birthday and I got a giftcard for 4wheel Parts, so this morning I drove up there and bought myself a birthday present. Just finished installing.






Super easy install, everything fit perfect. I'm not a huge Smittybilt fan usually, but I've liked this bumper since I saw it. Nice and simple. Lost my fog lights for now, but no biggie, I'll figure out something later for that.

Finally got around to installing my offroad/fog lights and redoing the gauge lights with LED's, thankfully the pioneer headunit has about 40 different color options for when it lights up and it all matches up pretty good..On to the pics
Relays mounted

Lights

Front lights at night

Switches..Going to go with a set of switches for the stock location, but these work for now

Inside all lit up with the new LEDs

Gotta have the zombie sticker!

Jeep looks great! Love that color.. As far as lights go, you can always mount tabs on it, or go with a roof light setup..

Replaced the rear wheel studs where I wrung one off couple weeks ago, and replaced the lug nuts with some stainless steel ones. I got tired of the rusty ones
