It also adds some beefiness look to the jeep.

I added a dome light and a duel power outlet. First time wiring anything like that up and it all works. Now time to clean it up for the weekend.

next weekend I should have pics but I picked up a new (to me) set of d30/d35 axles out of a 93 YJ, 4.10 gears front and 4.11 gears rear. Starting tomorrow I will begin tearing them down and getting them ready for paint as well as checking out the innards of the diffs to see how bad they are since I know they've been sitting for a while. If all goes according to plan next Saturday evening I will be posting some pics of my newly installed axles and maybe a flex pic since I have yet to test out my articulation following the removal of my track bars and sway bar.

I got mine running for the first time! PUMPED.

I'll be adding 15 mickey thompson classic beadlocks and some 31x11.5 TSL Swampers and about 4 gallons of bedliner.

Then my gopro camera on the hood with the first few runs of me giving it hell!

Today I put on new snaps so I can roll my rear window up. Old ones went missing. And last week I put a 12 inch sub and amp I had from a previous vehicle.

Bedliner

Finally got everything pretty solid so got to do the one mod I have been dying to do to something I own, BEDLINER INSIDE AND OUT. so the new to ne YJ was the perfect pic. Took all fender flares off and got rid of the school bus look I had going. Did everything but leaving original color of roll bar and windshield hindges. Use RUST-O-LEUM brand bedliner in gallon jugs. Used about 1.25 of the two gallons and that's two coats all way arouns top to bottom. Pics stink w phone but I will get better tomorrow before it gets coated w mud for the rest of its life.

also did another awesome piece, converted my rusty falling apart tailgate into metal again w the welded and then making it a drop down tailgate instead of swing. Love it. Few more good ideas we will do to make seats quick connects in rear and then have wheel chocks for our pitbikes so tailgate down acts as bed extended. Need to et chains still so we can set tailgate when down but for now sure is awesome!!!!

Update pics soon in thread ill start

Yeah I like them. Only complaint I have is I wish I would have got the reclining seats to make it easier for the kids.
