You take out the screws holding the loops in the door. Pull them out and screw these back in. Very simple

Replaced the 1/4" cotter pin that holds the foot on my Hi Lift jack with one of these -

Now I can easily remove the beam from the base to use other accessories

1/4" Ball Lock Pin with a 1" working length. It would have been cheaper to use a 1/4" Clevis pin from Home Depot though!

I had been getting very marginal sound from the speakers in my sound-bar. I saw on the electronics section about how some people had used some pillow stuffing behind the speakers to help the sound.

So I tore apart an old pillow and stuffed away.

Voila! Much cleaner sound from the speakers. I can actually listen to music while moving down the street.

Should get even better when the new dash speakers and adapters arrive.

I used to have subwoffers in my cars when I was I school and I always had poly-fill in the speaker boxes. It really does make a huge difference

Not "Today", specifically (does that disqualify me?), but last week, lifted Brutus 2" with a TeraFlex coil spacer kit. Happy with the results, in fact it actually seems to ride quieter now. Maybe a tad loose at the top on a couple of turning maneuvers (or maybe I just have to get used to the new configuration) but, overall, very happy and highly recommend. Also, makes room for going to 33" when the 31" BFG KM-2's finally wear out...eventually.

Not necessarily done today but I got some time over the holidays. Installed my rocker guards from Brooks Custom Concepts, put the Trektop NX on and even had time to make a front bumper!

Determined Jeeper and the not on hand part

so doing an oil change and noticed residual oil on the top of the valve cover, wiped it down, determined that the pcv elbow grommet on the front of the valve cover was leaking, easy fix, replace grommet, and im in business, well, the pcv elbow wouln't come out so i put a little more effort into its removal and wound up breaking the thing into many pieces. the local parts store had the grommet but would take about a week to get the pcv elbow, this wouldn't work since i had a hog hunt that nite i didn't want to miss, i went to the self help section, grabbed a ford valve cover breather/filter, a chrystler grommet to insert into the opening of the breather, and a ford pcv elbow for the chrystler grommet, which was able to hook up to the original tube leading into the air intake. determination trumps the jeep gremlins. here is what it looks like, and i personally don't think it looks half bad, and i got the bonus of no oil sloshing up into the elbow because the filter stops it. anyway here is what it turned out to be. i call it frankenbreather...

Nice idea! Sure beats having it stuck between the console & e-brake handle

First Wash and Wax - 4 hours!

The hood isn't wet - looks like drops - it's actually the reflection of the tree branches.

I'm plasti-dipping the chipped mirror bars soon!

I was quite busy today. I installed my flip up license plate bracket. Replaced the stock fog lights for 5" KCs. Those suckers are bright. Replaced the rubber body mounts for polyurethane suspension bushings. Also, installed step ups for the vertically challenged people. Will take photos in the morning. Wanted the red bushings but they were back ordered. Oh well, it still is nice.

Distributor cap vacuum vent

Today I drilled a hole in the lower side of my distributor cap and installed a rubber grommet and a plastic hose connector and ran a hose from it to a vacuum line on my intake manifold. Also ran the top vent to my air box. Reason being to keep moisture out and to to prevent any ionization. Cap terminal's are constantly getting corroded robbing power from my 4 banger. Took the idea from a MSD cap kit for a GM engine. I hope it works.I will report results in three months or so.

Aside from the oil change and new exhaust I put on a Rugged Ridge rock crawler rear bumper. No drilling required the install instructions said. Drilling was required and two of the back plates were the wrong size so grinding was required also. One cut finger and some home made stitches later and it's on and I'm happy with it.
