Painted the roll bar pads and repainted the speaker grills.

Bedlinered a set of Canyon wheels for the upcoming new BFG MTs.

Up next, bedliner on the rearview mirrors and replace the rear U-Joint.

(Pictures tonight)

I rode to work with no top or doors....and my jacket on with the heat running. Not that I'm complaining. I'm tired of triple digits.

Hmm I wish I got 18.88 mpg I barely get 14.3 mpg with 31s. Can you explain a little more on this? For 15 min of work that could possibly give me my power and mpg back up I'd love to do it!

Cleaned the IAC took the whole housing off and took the IAC valve out of housing, sprayed and tooth brushed the butterfly and bore of the TB. I've also been running MMO (marvels mystery oil). She's got 29s on her before I put a new engine in it consistently got 20 mpg. This is why I was a little excited about almost 19

Today I added a new bumper sticker (the one in the center). I had a friend make it for me at work. I can't take credit for the saying, I stole it from ESP123's signature line.

Overhead console install, myself like many have/had the same questions of where to install a CB. I made the mistake of buying a CB ( Cobra SoundTracker) for the Features, not size. I made a overhead console out of pressed board and covered it w/speaker carpet. 8" wide and attached from front roll bar to mid roll bar. 2 Verizon zip ties in front & back mounted very sturdy. I used grey 3/4 wire loom along the sides for color accent and running wires. CB and Police Scanner for wheeling mounted underside with lots of room for whatever else I find the need to mount, excessory lighting, ETC.ETC. Cost of console? Nothing, I had everything laying around the garage.

Gave it a wash and vacuum now that that Lee has passed. Installed two grab handles in the front and two in the back. Also added two cup holders to the cage in the back.

I ham fisted the whole thing. I only took the glove, speaker grills, top trim and center bezel off. The rest I just masked with paper towels blue tape and sprayed away. This stuff is super forgiving and if you don't like it, it peels right off. Took like 2 hours.
