Did you pull your battery cable and clear your computer? Some peeps say that it helps your comp relearn the fuel mapping and helps after installs like that. I did that with my Bronco when I went to JBA headers and 3" exhaust.

Nice look I really want to add them to mine but can't drop the coins on something I'd hardly ever use... I don't know anyone that wheels at night to go with...

That's why I went with some lights that were only $12 each from Northern Tool.

Custom made a safety net for the dog

Had a seat belt go bad, when I replaced it today I came up with a good idea for the old one..... Yes I have seen the cargo nets they sell, too much clutter for my liking, only need it on the side. Now I gotta find me another old belt for the other side. Cut it with scissors, sealed the ends with a torch, made the holes with a soldering iron, #10 x 1/2" screws for fastners. I like it.

Went and picked up my new to me soft top after having it re-stitched then came ad fought like hell to instal it....this thing is tighter than the frameless I had on my last Jeep.
I was hoping to paint it black cause I'm not a fan of the tan but I might just wait and see if I can get one off CL.
I picked the whole top and frame for $125 of CL then another $35 to have it re-stitched.

A buddy of mine has all red lights everywhere in his interior and it was a little much for me but he loves it.. Just personal preference. I think it would look fine if it was just the dash lights and A/C-Heater lights.

Went to discuss my re-gear for my front D30 with the local college. It will be supervised by the instructor and all torque settings closely followed. Then he asks me if I would like them to go ahead and swap my D35 rear for the G2 D44 that I was going to do myself. Hmmm, me doing it myself with a buddy in my garage with a torpedo heater and lots of learning or him doing it while I go about my normal business. It really was a tough decision, but I think I will let them do that too. Who am I trying to kid, I am no mechanic. In three weeks I will have my new axle, front end re-geared, and 33" Grabbers. I cant wait!
