Now that's a great use of that spot under the hood. And the junction box a great one as well! Great box to stash things as well .

Thanks. It seems to be working well. I sealed the holes with silicone so it is waterproof. Still have a bit more electrical work to do on my jeep. Next thing is a cb/antenna and a lift. I really want to move my radio antenna to the back of my jeep and have it on the opposite side of where the cb antenna will be installed. I was looking at getting two of the very long whip antennas. So far no luck finding an adapter to reroute the antenna on the radio.

I went to Superbrightleds.com and ordered them. There is a write-up in the cheap,easy,fun, and creative mods thread. I can't post links from my phone otherwise I would post both. Hope this helps!

Bolted a couple of ammo cans onto the rear fender wells. Good storage areas for my recovery gear and tools.

Hey Powertrip, would those cans get in the way of the soft top frame? If so I wonder if anyone has mounted some in a place in the back that they would not...

I've seen a couple people mount them in the trunk space while the seats still in. You can mount a couple!

I get to have 4Wheel drive again soon.
Now I can rebuild my front drive shaft and kick those angru sparrows to the curb.

I tried to install step ups today. First body bolt came off with a little muscle. Second one snapped. Had to stop. Come on people, use anti-seize.

Yes. There's a stock location. On the bottom of the rear drivers side of the frame.

tightened my lower controll arms... been procrastinating on that a little to long and tightened my front track bar bolt that was very loose, made for some horrible driving. everything feels good at tight now. While under the jeep, i noticed the rear u-joints are getting a little play in them... guess thats next
