I bought some of that Griots waterless car wash and tried it as soon as I got home. Man, that stuff is awesome! I even wiped off the flares with it. I'll post a pic later.

I use to sell Dri Wash n Guard years ago but this stuff is quite a bit better! Good luck. Its so easy to use. Just don't put a lot of pressure on the micro fiber towel at first. Mine actually looks as good as if I waxed it!

Finally got around to installing that new steering stabilizer last night. A pitman arm puller is your best friend for the job.

Put the hardtop back on for the next two weeks or rain. Got the defroster working again and found some random wiring...

Yeah, It would never fly in my old state/town either but it doesnt seem like too big of a deal here in Denver. I've had my sides done in 15% for the last two years without any issue and always liked the look of a tinted windshield so i went for it.

Looks great from outside the vehicle, is awesome in the sun, and isnt bad at all when driving at night (drove it last night).

The guy did it for 40 bucks so it was definitely well worth it

I'll try and get some better pics this weekend after a clay/buff/wax

DIY Jeep Pegs

Been searching online and wanted those Jeepegz but not interested in paying 100+ to get em here so heres what i came up with.

Went to the local Motorcycle shop and picked up these little guys

$30 bucks after military discount ha "MURICA

Went over to Ace, cause they're the helpful hardware place to get the other parts i needed.
3/8 lock washers
3/8 washers (Both in grade 8)
3/8 Rubber washer
1 1/4 X 3/8 (Fine Thread) Grade 5 Bolt

Funny they had grade 8 washers but no grade 8 bolts in fine thread. Oh well its not structural or anything so no big deal.

And the tools i used
Socket wrench
Sockets
40 torx
3/8 drill bit



Removed the bottom Torx bolt (40 Torx) Go slow and dont strip the threads. That would be a PITA to remove. then drilled it out with a 3/8 bit.


this is how i assembled. threw away the old mounting hardware for the motorcycle since i had all the other shiz. And went bolt->lock washer->washer->pass through to the outside->rubber Washer->Ballin Jeep Peg


Tightened everything down and this is the end result. Not bad for ~$32 bucks
Buttoned UP

Down


Let me know what ya think or if you have an questions. Thanks

I have the same fenders that I'm trying to get sanded for paint and adding LED's for side marker/turn signals before I install.

Nope Its mounted where the bottom screw was and the pegs are tapered a little so it doesnt go near the door. heres the door mounted

Thanks, good to know the door won't hit it. I will have to add this to my list of things I want to do.

You could also do what i did and install JK turn signals in the front grill if you didnt want to have them mounted into the tube fenders.
