Removed driveshafts, installed front/rear control arms, tummy tuck, SYE, new front/rear springs, underseat lock boxes, gear shade, rock sliders, rear bumper/tire carrier and roof rack. Even though it looks too high in the pick, the jeep still fits in the garage. Now just waiting on my new CV driveshafts to install and i'm back on (and off) the road.

Adjusted my toe in and centered the steering wheel. Dang thing was toe out 1 1/8 inches! PO didn't align it after installing a lift, tires, and wheels. Sad part is the brand new tires already have a bad wear pattern. Going to rotate them tomorrow and hope they start to even out.

I was stupid enough not to do a toe in after my lift cause I thought it was difficult. I ended up with a bad tread wear and still regret it haha.

just type this in google- Warn M8000 vs VR8000
bought the vr8000. unfortunately I'm down here in Louisiana visiting my brother and won't be home in Wisconsin until thursday

Got the cordura, webbing and the grommets in for my overhead console. I haven't sewn anything in so long I was rusty as hell. Got the cover made, though. I'll put it on tomorrow and see how it looks.





It'll go around the center part of the overhead console I made and lace on at the top.

You got a steal

I used to run no spare, too. I put it back on, because I'm wheelin more often, now. Just a thought.....if you're gonna run sans spare, it looks a lot cleaner without the holder/brake light. That is, of course, MY opinion. Yours is the one that counts, though. Great color, by the way.

Ordered new shocks, springs, and control arms from Savvy Offroad, Can't wait to get them! Also tried to install new door bushings from Black Magic Brakes, although I couldn't get the bottom ones in; so I couldn't put the doors back like I wanted to today.

Look Mama, No Hanging Wires

I finished this mod for my cell phone. It took me about four hours to do it. I used the Bracketron and the Akron cell phone mounts. I cut off the top of the Bracketron, grinded it smooth and repainted the whole piece for uniformity. I then attached the Akron bracket. I tapped into the cigarette lighter from behind with a new holder and USB adapter. Then, I ran the wires from behind, through my gooseneck, so that there are no sloppy hanging wires over my shifter and console.(Not in this order, because I did the wiring while the Bracketron dried). It doesn't move at all, and it is very sturdy. I can touch the buttons with one hand and it won't move. The cell phone is, off to the side, a little over one foot from my face, and it doesn't obstruct my window or vents, and my cigarette lighter is free to use.
