Installed new bumper and winch today. Tomorrow I will be rebuilding two lightbars for my roofrack and replacing the one on my hood.

Undercoated my fender wells, sprayed the frame and underside with Rust Converter, fixed the AC, fixed the shifter boot, fixed the temp gauge(that fixed the check engine light), then drove it around for a few hours.

Painted my headlight bezels and grill inserts with Rustoleum bedliner. NO MO CHROME!





Also replaced rear shocks. Can you guess which one was bad?

I run a 32 but I got tired of seeing that huge light in my rear view mirror so I did the center cap idea with wire disconnects

Not much of a mod but it's the first thing I did since I got my Jeep. I work 2 jobs and I drive from 1 to the other. The night job requires me to take a truck home at night so my Jeep hasn't been home very much since I picked it up. I added the Light Saber Holder from EK Motorsports so it didnt keep rollin around on the floor.

My next plan is to change the shifter knob. Had a Hurst T-Handle kickin' around w/ the correct threads so that'll get done soon.
