Noob? Knob? Lmao.

Speaking of noobs and knobs... This noob put an awesome green skull shifter knob in his Jeep this morning. Then hit a trail. Darn thing rattled loose and one of the set screws worked it's self out. Had to stop and put lock tight on the screws and wait for it to set. I'm on a cell phone, and don't know exactly how large this image is...

Pretty swanky ehh?

Tomorrow, I need to glue the heater vent deflector back on my Jeep tomorrow.

That knob is awesome. However I will never put one back in my jeep. It has 3 little hex key set screws and a rubber gromet that doesn't fit the entire shaft. So the set screws rub on the spline of the shifter rod. Plus the jeep rattles so much the set screws fall out and the shifter just lawls around. Even with blue locktight it broke the screws free lmao. I ended up filling the shifter knob with soft silicon and sticking if on, then red locktight on Tue set screws. It was totally worth it.

I built a jig and lifting system for the hard top. Far better than the stupid lift system they sell for $150 or more. I have to come up with a better actual lift, but the jig and hanging hook in the ceiling are done. Cost me about $50 so far. Should be out of it for less than $75 with a cheapo crank, or maybe another $50 for a power winch. I havent decided yet.

Pick up a 12v. air compressor from Harbor Fright today 17.99 on sale, this weekend only. for off roading, will stay in the jeep.
all so picked up some tow hooks,60.00 two were Highlander, and two were Reese, I seen some at Harbor for 8.00, but I don't think I could trust them to do the job.
got some torquk ( speeling ) bits, 8.00 didn't have the sizes I needed at home.

And almost brought down a state patrol in a SUV, he was driving on my 6 in my blind spot, looked in rear view no one behind me no one beside me, turned on my blinker looked over my shoulder and seen this brush gard, scaered the pi$$ out of me. Didn't know it was a stater untill he got along side. You would think that with all that drivers tranning they have they wouldn't do that ( DUMB A$$ )You need this.

This was done in a week time frame but installed a used JKS telescopic track bar, new air filter, pcv filter, and replaced the crappy spark plug wires with accel and replaced the spark plugs with much better ones, also replaced the cap and rotor. In addition I replaced the worn out, cracked and shredded serpentine belt and changed the oil. I recently installed a Warn bumper with D rings. Looks great and fits right on, originally was made for a TJ but I just drilled the holes larger to make the bumper fit on.

More work to be done...BTW anyone know how I can rip out the stock intake to my 4.2L and install a chevy style intake. There are so many vacuums lines I want to make sure I don't take the wrong ones out. there are no emissions laws here in Oahu. So next I'll be taking my cat out as well as replacing new headers.

Pretty easy install and much better looking than the nerf bars. Depending on how they hold up eventually I want them to be welded on.

I'll be removing the flares and looking into flat flares eventually to clean it up.
i have the side steps that mount to the body bolts, i leave the bolts a little loose so when i smash rocks they bend up and then go right back to normal, i have hit some nice rocks with them and they protect the body nicely.
I dont have a pic of it smashing, but i hit this rock on the way down and i didnt have a scratch on the body.

It also adds some beefiness look to the jeep.
I have this same color jeep, same rim and same tire. I've added this project to the queue. It's good to see how it's going to look which is nice.

got an ammo box to use as lockable storage counsole,didnt want to pay 300 dollars for one ,so modified this ammo box over the weekend,next step is to paint it and install,next weekend. Got lock from hardware store,had to remove carry handle to ammo box and made slot for the tongue of the lock to go into,on back side, flattened l shaped bracket so top would go back fully, brazed the back latch into place so the unit acts as a hinge.

Between yesterday and today, installed vdp sound bar, troubshot and repaired dome lights in the sound bar, installed new bestop supertop, swapped Clarion head unit from my accord with the jeep PO's kenwood. Also, removed PO's stickers that mean absolutely nothing to me.

Next is to find wing nuts and bolts to swap out front speakers and wire them into the radio as the rear speakers with the sound bar as the front ones. May or may not work. We will see!

yesterday i dropped the trans as i thought my throw out bearing and pressure plate were making noise, come to find out i was missing a few bell housing bolts which caused the trans to shift just enough to cause the flywheel to rub on the starter and the inspection plate. now i get to order a new flywheel and swap solenoids from the starter that was in it to my original one which has a broken s-term. oh yea and find new bell housing bolts and a new crank sensor.

This weekend, I added an Mile Marker SEC8 winch and plate, Rampage D-ring mounts on the front (in place of the tow hooks), replaced all stock shackles with new +1" boomerang shackles, and lastly...

Wheeled the hell out of it at DTOR this weekend!
