Bed line the grill. I have zero tech skill. I took the thing off (6 plastic rivets) cleaned the heck out of it. Sprayed it with some self etching primer then rattle can bed liner. Also plasti dipped the turn signals but you said one a day.

New Tires

I replaced my stock Sahara tires with 255/70/18 DuraTrac tires. Same size as the stock tires and I love the look and the ride.

Sofla Sahara JK Installed my warranty replacement Trektop NX. The stitching was coming apart on my first one after having it for about 9 months. Big thank you to the people at MORRIS 4x4. They gave me a new one on the spot after seeing the problems with mine. I took the new one home, installed it and will return the old one tomorrow.

I basically did the same thing when I got home today. I replaced my antenna cable since I had it run under the passenger seat and it managed to rub through the insulation.

My 2' Firestick II (since the Jeep can't fit in the garage with the 4' installed) came in today, too. So it was installed at the same time. I'm thinking I need to get an antenna spring so the end of the antenna is above the top. Next is figuring out if my CB is still good or if it fried because of the cable issues.

I'm going to replace the CB anyway with a Uniden Bearcat 880, but not before a road trip next weekend.

How much did the liners run you?

Thank you! Don't get me wrong, I would love aluminum fenders but a new axle and all the goodies to go with it is much more important!
