Today I sold the BMW so I could have more room in the garage to work on the jeep.

I have had my TJ for about 3 weeks now and have a list of things to do from this forum. Tonight I took the chrome headlight rings out and sprayed then with bedliner.

I'm a noob and this is my first post. Thanks for all of your tips and pics I've spent days looking at so far.

Finally had some decent top-down weather yesterday. Took one of the dogs for a ride to obedience school (me, not her), and tried out the Spider Web Shade for the first time. Very nice summer top, probably the best "under $100" upgrade I've ever made.

Made a lock box to put under the back seat. Drilled holes and put a shackle through with lock pin on inside. Bolted it down and using a word lock so I don't have to have a key to open.

Not tryin to pick and be an ass but the "Wheel dabble after bumps" is called bump steer. Check the forum out for some tips to get it fixed up real quick! This will hopefully save you some work. In another note, installed LED tail lights, highrock 4x4 front bumper, Warn winch, and a pavement ends rear bumper.

Did you make the spider shade yourself? Would you be interested in making another one and selling it?

Nope...no flapping....at least, no OUT OF NORMAL flapping. It moves A LITTLE. I plan on takin in some small jobs, but as a FedEx driver, extra time is hard to come by.

Thanks! I have a camo theme going. I have a BIG punisher skull on the hood, and her name on the side of the hood, that is the same camo pattern. A fellow WF member made it for me.

I didn't do a write up......it was all trial and error. Sorry. I'd love to have my dash panels camo dipped....too many complex curves for the camo vinyl.

Yeah no doubt about the wrap. Dipping is the way to go. I am getting mine dipped to match the camo shifters that I make.
