A Ton of Stuff

Well I'm glad you asked.

I have compiled a great deal of items on the quadratec website thanks to mom and dad's gift certificate from Christmas.

Some items include:

Best Top Jeep Logo Seat Covers
Mag Light Flash Light Holder
Straps (To get in out of the Jeep)
Saddlebags (I carry a lot of equipment from work)
Spare Tire Cover
48' Jack (You never know)
Air Intake (To come later in 08')
Extra bolt (Missing one on my spare tire, it eeks me everytime I look at it)


Probably a couple of other things but I can't remember right now. I know some of the stuff I may get off of ebay just because its cheaper but for convience I like to order from quadratec because I get everything within like 2days since I live like a state and a half from the facility.

Any other suggestions what I should get? I work as an engineer during the week and serve my country on selected weekends.

You see how long-arm is near the end of the list?

It's going to be one of the last things. Probably should have put it under the rocker guards and tube fenders. I wasn't able to use my Jeep a lot this summer because of my injured leg, but this coming summer it should see plenty of use and need replacing.

mrbigjeep my alloys are definitely lighter than my steel wheels

i wanna add a front bumper with some lights and maybe some trail corners. eventually tube fenders and a new rear axle (prolly 8.8) with a regear up front. with that also comes some bigger tires and i'll have to find a way to clear those bigger tires. also, sye w/ cv shaft and the rear adjustable uppers and tons of armor.

Riptide63 1. Getting new rotors and drums so I can fix the brake pulsations myself. Hill Kelly Jeep had 5 attempts to fix it under warranty. They're not allowed within 100 feet of it anymore.

2. BFG 31 x 10.50 All Terrain KO's

3. A set of these.


4. Hopefully enough left of my income tax return to get a hardtop.
