Did you get the lights in? Thinking about doing the same. Where did you buy them from?

Thanks! There's a lot of free space there and you could never have too much storage space in a wrangler.

Had a buddy weld a piece of scrap steel onto the top of my spare tire stop, painted it black, then stuck it back on the Jeep and plopped my cheapo magnet base CB antenna ontop of it for now.



One step closer to mounting my Firestik. Now it just needs to come in the mail

After driving my Dad's JK, I want to get one of the "Jeep" shifter knobs like what they have in those! They look sweet! Plus my "12345R" thing on my knob keeps moving/spinning around and for some odd reason makes me angry when it's not "right". Haha!
Yeah I do quite a bit of rock climbing. The hold feels pretty natural as a knob and its been working great so far.

I've got a bar that two slim fogs mount to. I'm going to weld it to the bumper for reverse lights. I'm still contemplating a few different ideas for the tag but will probably do led bolts or something along that line. The jeeps not my DD and I still have some major work to do before I can really drive it so knocking out the little things that I can do for cheap lol. Here's where the bar will mount and it's above the gas tank skid. More pics when I get around to doing it

I hated my busted up mud/water collecting factory tails too. Check amazon for the LEDs. I got the pair shipped for like $25 and they are super bright!

Installed my new front bumper. Waiting on the raised winch plate to come now so I can throw on the winch. Also found a gas leak. I knew I had been smelling gas, but when I had my jeep running yesterday a puddle formed pretty quick. Will be an easy fix where it is leaking since I wont have to drop the tank. I also happen to have all the stuff I need to fix it already too.

It was nice and sunny when I went to work, but I guess when I came back, Miami decided it was natural shower day.
