You see how high my steering is! I love it. Only thing left on my list to do for steering is a durango steering box. I will say if I wasn't in a rush to finish my soa I would have waited for a good deal on a 44 front with high steer already and the bigger brakes. I didn't have months to wait though

Holy heated seats!! At 24 degrees during the day, and midnight rides home from work. I have to say this is an upgrade for sher. These seats feel twice as comfortable as the old ones.

Are they just covers, or actual heated seats?

Finished my cooling system re-furb tonight. New water pump, thermostat & water outlet, all new hoses and a bunch of new nuts & bolts. The PO had replaced the radiator right before I bought her. Everything sealed up and the heater works great. Took her for a short test drive and got a few looks cause I didn't have a top on. Was going to start the A/C system next but decided to switch to start the body work. I'm going to pull the fenders and grill when I paint so I can do the A/C then.

Installed my hi-lift mounts and mounted my hi-lift.

Attachment 209062
Attachment 209063

Used my original bolts instead of the ones they sent. I like the red/black tether than the black with steel-colored bolts...
Attachment 209064


Also, put in the Quadratec floor mats and the "Jeep" (Mopar OEM for the newer Wranglers) hitch cover.

Took out my back seat, sold it. Started to rip out the ratty old carpet to get ready to bedline my tub. Damn it was nasty under that carpet.

Got 4 used BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires with at least another 25k miles and 1 brand new GoodYear Wrangler tire never touched pavement before for $100 locally. Balance and mount will be free at my gramps shop. Pretty awesome buy if I do say so myself.
