Took the factory padding off my roll-cage to bring through that gorgeous factory paint job!

It comes in a rattle can, I probably should have prepped it but I just hosed off the undercarriage then let it dry. I just sprayed it directly on, I know for best adhesion always prep the surfaces i.e cleaning/sanding/wiping,cleaning. Since my jeep has 4" of lift I just laid on my back in my garage and sprayed, attempting not to hold the can upside down. It wasn't incredibly messy but the paint dust did get in my hair. I suggest wearing some sort of breathing apparatus or painters mask so your not breathing in paint and wear some kind of protective eye wear since it gets pretty stuffy under your vehicle in a closed space. It took me 20 minutes and one can to cover the areas where mine and my passengers feet would be.

got my clear lense /amber led turn signals mounted on my flatties. looks a lot better now imo. no more colored lenses anywhere on my jeep.



also finally got around to taking the spacers off of my high clearence heavy duty gas tank skid and pushing it up higher. it was a battle, but i won, and so far im not having any fuel problems. lol.

and then snapped a funny pic of my buddy workin on his bmw. lol. i can sit up straight under my jeep. he has to do this just to change exhaust hangers. XD

Installed a new side marker, now I'm waiting in line for an inspection/green sheet. Retiring from the service and moving back to your home state is great, until you have to swap EVERYTHING back over.

HOOYAH!!!

You likely connected the power antenna wire to the remote for the sub instead of the actual remote wire. Try on FM radio and see if the sub works, if it does then your problem is what I said.

Cd's? Oh lord.. I learned the hard way in my rig that cd's are worthless. If it's not shock proof, it's almost not worth listening to. I ran a USB cable from the back of the headunit into my glovebox and I put my music on 16gb thumb drives. I have about 8x 16gb thumb drives full of music and instead of putting anything on cd's and having it skip every time I go over a bump, I don't have to worry about that at all. Food for thought bro!

That is why I haven't changed my head unit. I'm just gonna go the amp route and connect whatever device I have on hand.

The remote is needed to turn the sub on, so on the plus side, you can probably still get it going.

Installed a flow master 40 today on my stock 91 2.5 jeep, gave it a loud deep tone, but giving it gas really makes it to loud in my opinion and drowns out my radio, my exhaust has no cat converter so maybe ill install a high flow cat on it to see if it will quieten it down.

Thanks Dana. I got the front ones on ebay. they were like $25

and i got the side ones for the flatties from ledtrailerlights.com i think they were about $18. (although i goofed up and ordered the 2 wire ones instead of the 3 wire. so they only function as turn signals and not as running lights. oh well. ill mod em one day. my buddy is an LED genious and im not too bad either. )

Found out that my high beams don't work also causing an issue with my wind shield mounted lights. On top of the switch for my fog lights going to crap on me I have a mess on my hands.
