Took out seats and center console:









My better half did the "painting/undercoating" I cant stand anything even paint like. I think it came out pretty good. Tomorrow the seats go back in and the new console and the new back seat. Should look a little better. Couldnt get the damn seat belts out so had to come up with something to hold them up lol.

Installed Aussie front locker in last night, and tested it out today!!

Finally got around to putting in the front Aussie Locker, Oh boy what a difference offroad, I feel almost invincible. Maybe another 2 inches or so of ground clearance, and some larger tires, but this baby is definitely better than it was before.

steering column issue

Hello all, can anyone give me a easy fix with my steering issue. I have a 87 wrangler with a 3" body lift, by doing that I have taken out the bearing on the firewall on the column, as well as i believe I have loosened up the rubber portion right below it. (I have been told the rubber is just pressed firmly onto the column for road dampening). Is that accurate? Since that seems to be loosened up, is there a easy fix? It seems strange to me that the two column shafts are connected with a chunk of rubber... Accurate or not? I will replace the bearing issue but how do i fix the rubber issue? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I guess no more shows. Mine was a show worthy jeep after I rebuilt it. After 50+ hours on the trails not so much anymore. Still looks nice when I clean it, but not like it was before.

Nothing, spent the weekend camping with the Boy Scouts. It was my sons first trip after he got his drivers license. He drives a Cherokee.

Same here... Except for the 50+ hours on the trails part. 10 years of DD-ing and hitting some mild trails the past year or two but sh'es still lookin' pretty good... She just needs a little TLC (and I have all the replacements - just been waiting...).

I have a 1989 wrangler yj with a 2.5l engine. Currently that engine is going to crap. I've been considering my choices and have thought about a engine swap. What I wanted to know from you guys is how hard would it be to drop a 4.7l stroker engine in it and what all would I have to do also its a 5 speed manual trans

Wheelin'

Today I cleaned all the mud off from wheelin. ...It's what I did Saturday that made it great. Took her to Uwharrie for her maiden trail ride. Had a blast. Performed better than I imaged she would.

This is the stuff I used. Works pretty well from what I've heard. Figured I'd give it a shot. Was really easy either spray on or brush on. We just brushed it on.

Bottom-line pricing on Magnet Paint UCP99-01 at ToolTopia.com

Broke down early this morning on the turnpike. Alternator gave out. Had to wait on a rescue team because it was like 2am and in the middle of no where. Replaced the alternator this morning and it was like new. Bought a bunch more parts today for the engine. Also got a great deal for an oil change, so giving myself a break and letting someone else do it!

Good it was a simple fix but breaking down is no fun.

Just finished installing all my birthday presents from my wife. New seat covers, paracord grab handles, paracord door handles and KC light covers! I want to give a huge shout out to @southpawj79; he made and shipped me the paracord handles super fast and at a VERY reasonable price. Here are a few b&a pics:
