I added headrests to back seat so my little ones could bang their head comfortably. Then I added corner guard. Hard doing solo but was a great time. Also fell in love with spray on bed liner. Changed the whole look up. Rock sliders are on the way. Took me two weekends to do it all,but well worth it.

Its a funny story, I had my top off and was trying to out run the rain to get home and got pulled over doing 70 in a 55...

The High Po walks up and ask
" why ya in such a hurry"

I laughed, looked at the lack of roof over my head and laughed..
I said "do i really need to explain"

He laughed and let me go without another word..

Great time... Still got stuck in the rain tho...

I flipped mine today. It flopped on its side while I was backing down through a ditch. All I did was scratch a little and bend my soft top frame. Im so proud of my jeep! Me and two guys flipped it over and it started right back up!

Not 100% sure they were on the jeep when I bought it. What ever they are they're really horrible. They're on the upgrade list

Not at all, long story but I've replaced about 4. I got down to about a 30 minute swap

Do you have a writeup for the headrests?

Yesterday I got new shoes, new front brake pads and rotors, got the rear brakes cleaned up and adjusted, and got rid of the drop pitman arm.

Did a tune up and cleaned the throttle body. She is running nice and smooth now. Maybe I'll get a little bump in gas mileage....

I went to a car graveyard and found an old jeep grand Cherokee. Took the headrests and the holders out. Cost me 20 bucks for the set.
Basically I took the fabric off the rears after taking the rear out and to the back yard. It's mostly high end Velcro holding it on. There is a very thick top place I drill two holes in to. The holes need to be big enough for the headrest holders to fit down into. Then I took these little but durable u clap brackets and put them around the holders. Drilled 2holes into the back area where your back would rest against and put the head side of the bolts on that side. To prevent someone getting stabbed. After that I just put on a lot of gorilla glue around the straps, even though it was already a solid hold.

Put the fabric back on, cut two little holes into the top of the fabric for the headrest bars to slip into and all was good. I wish I had taken pictures of step by step. There's a way better wrote up with pictures on the forums here somewhere. But his seats were different than mine. I was real lucky that the color of the Cherokee's headrests matched mine perfectly, or I would of put on a cover. I have tried to move the headrests and they don't budge much at all. Great little add on and cost me 35 dollars,instead of buying a new backseat at 325 dollars. I hope this helped some.

Installed new XD 17x9 wheels.

I also added. 1inch diameter heater hose insert to the tailgate rubber bumps to keep the spare tire from vibrating when off roading because the new wheels have a 4.5 inch backspacing and the factory rubber bumps where not long enough. $3 and 20 minutes work with my son :-)
