2001 Silver TJ - All the carpet's out. Entire Tub is done in Bedliner. I was slow in doing it it seemed rather daunting. My son had done his 2004 and it looks great and better yet, it works! He came by and "pushed" me a little, OK, embarrassed me into doing it. LOVE IT!!!

I used some foaming amonia glass cleaner provided by local glass shop that worked so far to lift it out and killed the smell but its not 100 degrees yet either

Built a rear seat storage raiser. Now the kids can see over the dash and I can store tools and things.

Very nice!!!! And a great idea. My only concern would be if the attachment points are strong enough in case of an accident.

There's a product called Natures Miracle. It's a fabric cleaner. Carpet, upholstery, even in your laundry. We had a cat piss all over the carpet in the home office about 18 months ago. This stuff took the stain and smell out. Petco and petsmart both carry it. Not sure who else carries it.

Look into getting an overnight cover. They take about two or three minutes once you get used to them. It "should" keep the cats out.

Good luck!!!

I was concerned for them when they get taller. In the event of a rollover their heads will be taller than the roll bar.

Nice work. I guess as they get taller you can remove it. ???

the cover part is generally not necessary as i have 5 barns and the jeep stays in the enclosed shop however my extremely intelligent lab has figured out she can open the shop door and let everyone in ( shop door is getting a latch put on this weekend

Yesterday I used a needle scaler to knock off a lot of rust scale from my rear drivers side frame rails and cleaned out a mountain of junk form inside the rails through a rusted out hole that I cut back until I hit good metal. I then welded in reinforcing angle and face plates from some scrap box tubing that I cut up. I plan go through the entire frame like this to clean out, repair, and seal any weak points over the next week or so.

This was technically today seeing as how I finished at 12:30am this morning. Removed my old half door handles and made my own paracord handles. Grab bars and door limiters are next. Click image for larger version

This has been ongoing, but here's what I've done so far:

I removed the big plastic end caps from the bumpers on my TJ. Wow, what a HUGE difference. I bought some much smaller pieces to close off the ends, and it's a much cleaner look which cost less than $20 bucks to do.

I removed the hard top and put on a trektop NX. The "fastback" profile looks great, and I'm pleased with the quality. I guess I didn't quite realize that once this thing's installed, you're not likely to make the effort to go completely topless because taking the safari part off is a pain, but with doors and sides removed it's pretty much just as open and free feeling, so I think the benefits of the top far outweigh that negative. I've also seem some Rampage frameless tops that looked to be nice quality as well.

I ripped out all the carpeting. The Jeep spent it's life on a ranch in Montana, and the carpets were disgusting. I like the look without, but I'm wondering whether it'll be too cold in the winter.

Alignment, new track bar, steering stabilizer, and rear endlinks. There are still some mysterious clunks and rattles but I'm slowly getting the suspension worked out. Death Wobble is gone for now.

I ripped the carpet out of mine, and while it is a little cooler in the winter, I find it's offset somewhat by the heat you get from the transmission.

She got a new windshield today... brand spankin new! She really liked that.... then I decided to go pick up a new bellhousing from a jeep salvage place and ended up walking out of there with a front driveshaft and a set of half doors too....

The jeep is smiling now! she always wanted half doors!

Weldings easy. Buy a welder and practice welding junk together. You'll learn in no time!
