Installed a home made Sport Cage Hi-Lift® Jack Mount to my roll bar. Real fancy. LOL!!! I used 2 "U-shaped" exhaust clamps. Works perfectly. Bought the hi lift from walmart. $64.00 Can't beat it.

You'll love them I've had them on my Jeep since I owned it. When I first got my new set they leaked but they only leak now when I wash it with the pressure from the hose

My plan was to install new extended rear swaybar links and Novak TC linkage. The swaybar links were harder than I thought since one of the bolts that screwed into the flag nuts broke. I had to remove the flag nut before continuing. A trip to lowes for a reciprocating saw and 1/2" drill bits to make the swaybar hole bigger and I was back to work. Not enough time for the linkage today since I have to work by daylight (no garage).

Installing amplifier under driver seat. Pulled seat and had to cut risers for the back of the amp using scrap 2x4s.
So far so good. Will finish tomorrow...

Been dying to have a radio with an aux port so I could listen to Pandora instead of the POS local stations. I picked out a radio for my birthday that my wife bought me. Didn't want anything too expensive considering someone can just unzip a window

Since buying the Jeep the front speakers never worked and for a while actually thought the only speakers in the thing were in the bar. Picked up some matching XPLOD speakers for the front and some for the sound bar. Sure makes a hell of a difference than that garbage factory speakers and head unit

Washed my jeep for the first time since I bought it on Black Friday. Sad to see the mud go but it was getting bad

So today I put in the Ipod interface cable on my factory radio from USA Spec and it went in and worked without a problem. Figured I'd keep the stock look because of the area I have to park in at work. Definately recommend this if you want to go that route. When I took it apart I noticed this wire(in the second pic) under the dash panel. Any idea what its for? Just wondering, I know I'm not missing anything but maybe its worth adding to.
