Made Grille inserts

Didn't like the plastic things I saw nor the others and like the chain idea to get air so used 35lb chain, drilled 1/8 holes into the back grille area made use of S hooks and black chain, now its tight and will deflect the rocks and tree limbs I seem to collect, wont stop a full on hard hit but I like it, the center grille area I hadn't clamped down the S hooks tight yet, they are now though.

Unless I get used, another TJ or even an XJ, I just got a new Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn. Even so I don't like the idea of being Jeepless

It's really easy to do. I take mine off for wheeling. It's a t55 and a 3/4 wrench for the bottom bolts. I forget what the top one is.

Got my CB installed and had the antenna tuned. In the end, I'm happy with it.

Hoping to use it this weekend at a local ORV park, but the weather is not participating.

(Not sure why the pictures came up sideways... Stupid phone).

Try turning your phone 90° when you take the pic...? Do you have the auto screen rotation turned off?

The pics are fine on my phone and the screen rotation is on. For some reason they just uploaded that way. I know that I've uploaded them before a day they were fine.

I made some angry eyes out of some aluminum. Just cut and drilled some holes to the factory screws. Looks mean!

Put a new bumper and kc hilites on. I'm trying to wire lights now. Tell me if I'm doing this completely wrong and how I do it right please. I want to come out of the fuse box into the switch with a hot. Then from the switch to the lights. Of course grounding the switch and each light. I don't know how to tap into the fuse box. There is a pic of the back of it. I'm assuming tap into one of the spare fuses but how???? This is my first wiring project. I just want to get it right. Thank you in advance!!
