Luckily he's a big chicken and tries to be as close to me as possible. If I keep a hand on him he's pretty happy. Although that's fun to do in a manual.
Please go to the pet store. Get a proper harness and tether that attaches to the seat belt. Not expensive, moves from one vehicle to others easily. Well worth the money. Nice dog, too.

Yes they do and Unlimited Rubicon Saharas were a pretty limited run option.

took it to Uwharrie for some rock crawling with my dad. and everything was against us. its been pouring for weeks, so it was a super slick mudhole. no one had any control over thier trucks. and to make matters worse, my 4x4 selector was messed up. i couldnt get it to go into 4lo, and it kept slipping out of 4hi.

we rode one trail and get out of there while we had the chance. it sucked. ill have to get a cable shifter or something to fix my linkage problem. :/

Changed out the old shocks with worn bushings that were causing a knocking sound any time I went over the smallest bump with Rancho RS5000's. So nice not to hear that rattle and clank anymore.

Installed LED strips in the floor board of my LJ instead of having the stock lights. They are bright as heck. Will post up pictures of what it looks like when dark.

Added some rock lights. Not bad for $18.20 with free shipping from China. It came with 20 4-led pods, but I only used 18 of them. I am debating about using the other two in my engine compartment to replace my non-functional hood light, or maybe adding them to the top of the rear wheel wells.

In case anyone is interested in doing the same:

I put a relay and a fuse in by the battery and daisy chained them from the passenger side around to the drivers side and then to the two up front. I mounted the switch in the factory switch panel. Incredibly easy, just a lot of time spent on my back today. I didn't have enough heat shrink to cover all the connections so I just used butt connectors. If they ever short out or pull apart I'll go back through and redo it.

I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out. It is just amazing to me how much actual rock lights are when you can get something like this for 1/5 or 1/6 the cost. They are waterproof so I am hoping they last for quite a while.

Installed my Birthday gift.. TrekArmor front seat covers! I am very impressed with the fit and ease of installation.

Over the weekend, I replaced some older flex bushings with new MetalCloak duraflex bushings. Much easier to install and the ride seems better!
