I can finally carry a matching spare tire now!!!!

I still have to extend the rubber bumpers for the spare tire.........anyone have suggestions on how to do this?
I picked up a second set of OEM tire spacers, trimmed off the "domed" portion so they are the correct thickness, bought some longer bolts and Fastenal, and mounted them. Works great. Here's a picture.

I have my dead SE with almost perfect sheet metal, as well as some bits that I want to cannibalize before giving it to my best friend. I think that the air canister in the passenger rear fender on my Sport is bad, so I will swap them to see if that clears the engine code. I will also steal the hood, fenders and tailgate from the SE. After I swap out all this stuff I will let my friend schedule a pickup with the transport company. During all this I will be installing the OR-Fab carrier. But I want to get the good tailgate off the SE first. So there is that small road block... I am betting that by the time I have the carrier installed and all the body panels swapped out (and that dang air canister) that I will have the lights, too. I have such craptastic luck in most things, but my MIL has really come through for me with the two jeeps and with our Honda over the years. I guess she sees our daily commute and knows we are really hard on our vehicles. So that is where she chucks her gifts to us - cash for parts!
I need your mother-in-law to hang out with mine. Maybe mine will learn some. Lol

srad600 Broke an axle!


lol.


4.88s 35s and the wheeling I do were a bit too much for stock D44 Axles. I actually learned when doing the gears that one was a lil twisted. I through it back together any way knowing the Alloy USA Chromo axles wouldnt be here till this Friday. I needed to move the Jeep.


I also backed into my good friends 2008 Civic with one of said 35s and now owe him a door or some body work. FML.

I've never used door clips on my other jeeps but my gf isn't a fan of me sticking duct tape there. The weather here is back and forth daily. It snowed a couple inches last week, then 74*, then rain, then 54*...it has rained every other day so there's no consistency yet. I was just gunna do tape cuz it's quick and always worked before.

That is such an easy and inexpensive mod, and it is SOOOO much better when you do it! I cannot believe I waited so long before having the nerve to work behind my dash with the wiring and such. After I was done I was so psyched, and it was actually easy to do, just awkward for my big ham hands.

Good job, man!

Rock Kicker Oh, and made a deal with the manager at my local big box tire shop. Overhauling and customizing a damaged part on his Mercedes (saving him a few grand) and he's gunna toss the 33" Duratracs I was buying next week on my rig, plus a lil cash. Once he pulls his part, should only take me a few hours. Not bad IMHO.

BurlySoldier Installed my all Rockford Fosgate system- Dual 10" Punch P3's, Prime 1200 watt mono amp, Punch 5.25 coax's, Punch 6.5" coax's, battery terminals, RFK 4 gauge wire kit. I haven't even remotely tuned it right and I am absolutely blown away.
I've still got a lot to do- tuning the amp and head unit as well as cleaning up the wiring but man ..wow. RF is badass. I will never own another brand of amp or subwoofer. The amp cost $220 and the RF sub box was 320 on amazon.
