I just installed new tires. Falken Rocky Mountain ATS (same as the Wildpeak AT, just a special name that only Discount Tire has) 31x10.50r15 along with 15x9 steel wheels that I bought on craigslist for $20 each (for a set of 5).
I went up from Big O Bigfoot 30x9.50s on stock rims, by the way.

I also would like to add for reference purposes that I have a 2" BDS lift with 1" Zone boomerang shackles and, obviously, a trimmed front fender made of garden edging from Home Depot.

Wow! Mine were nearly that bad. Mine were stock frm the factory. One of them was oval shaped instead of cylidrical. A pothole at 25mph would cause my rear axle to hit the bump stops. I know the teeth jarring feelings... it might have broken a rear passenger's tailbone.
I was so glad when I replaced my shocks and springs with a BDS kit.

Started addressing some rust spots on the body. I ordered some Por 15 degreaser, metal prep, and rust paint. This stuff is amazing! I followed the directions to the letter and it works really well. I even prepped and painted the new gas tank straps I ordered. Other than putting the paint on a bit too heavy (learning curve!) they look great. The paint really levels itself nicely, perfectly smooth, and I applied it with super cheap chip brushes from harbor freight. I can't wait to start painting the frame and suspension parts.

I added about + 10 horsepower in decals, then swapped out my gauge lights for blue LEDs.

My lovely wife got me some new sun visors for my birthday today. They look much better than the old ones.

I was really surprised how they changed the look of the interior. Honestly, I just wanted to keep the damn sun out of my eyes! I guess the "dress up" factor was an added bonus.

Replaced my tail lights. 87yjmpi sold me some sweet aftermarket take-offs. Worked perfect!

Did some research on replacing my motor. Got an appt with the local mech tomorrow to see if it needs that much love or if the knock is something easy.

Talking Parking Light.........Fixed!!

I've been having a problem with my front drivers side Parking Light not working. The blinker worked fine but the parking light portion wouldn't come on and I would get the dashboard green blinker light on constant every now and then.

With the help of my trusty multimeter I narrowed it down to the socket itself.

$11 later (thanks Oreilly) and a half hours worth of wiring and I have a fully functioning set of lights again!! I replaced it with a universal 3-wire socket.

I've attached a picture of the corroded and shorted out socket I pulled in case any of you are having the same issues and want to compare.

I have had my YJ since June and have had no tunes, so this past Saturday I installed a Pyle stereo. I was worried that the old dash speakers and sound bar would have dead noise makers, but lucky for me they all work, not great sound, but now i don't have to hum to myself all the time.

When there is no radio, you hear every creak and crunch in your YJ don't you? I know that feeling lol

I like the look but couldn't bare to do that to mine. It sets the saharas apart. I dig the black wheels I might have to do that but the gf is against it.

I still kept the sahara badging and stickers on the rear quarters. I do plan to paint this spring so I'm slowly working my way there and this was an easy step. And the rims were really easy to paint. It's just flat black metal paint with some light sanding before you paint.

Today I dropped off my 4.0 block, New .030 over pistons/rings, 4.2 crank/rods, and all the engine bearings off at the machine shop. They are gonna bore it, align hone the mains, give it a new deck surface with as little taken off as possible, re-size the rods, balance it, and assemble the short block. The crank has already been polished, and both the block and crank have been hot tanked. $500 cash seemed like a good deal to me.

Because the Jeep deity wanted to make sure you weren't too comfortable.
