|ptoncannon||And I do know that the cable lugs I took a picture of were for 2 ga. Wire. I just didn't know what to buy so I bought a few things.|

Replaced my battery terminal connectors. After looking around, I couldn't find a write up on replacing the terminals so I came up with this.
I just bought the terminals from advanced auto for like $6. They have 2 bolts on the top, not necessarily intended for this use but there is a good connection regardless. They were coated so I had to grind the coating off the top with a bench grinder so a connection could be made. Anything could easily do that though, even a knife. Then I bought the 4 ga. battery lugs from autozone for I think $3.50 for a set of 2, you need 4 lugs in all. Then I just cut wiring from existing corroded terminals, pulled the insulation back, and crimped the lugs on and bolted it all together. Very simple fix and I like it because now I have an easy way to take my battery off!
Only did the negative terminal though.. Tan out of daylight yesterday. Positive will be the hardest because the bolt is stripped and terminals are melted... That will be done tonight

A couple years ago I had an 05 sport that I rolled, then built a 96 Xj which I just sold.
Picked up this cherry little 03 Rubicon, appears to be stock with what looks to be a synergy cage. The kicker.... It's a 2003 with only 25k miles!

Rotated my tires in the garage in the tx heat
Omg I need to invest in an impact drill. I spent most of the time removing and installing the wheel bolts!

Before i swapped fenders, i had normal stock fender flares on(Not the 1" extended sahara ones). Using a plum die, i measured over the fender down to the tire tread. My 31" duratracs jutted out about a half inch. With the tube fenders, they come out about 1 1/2". So you lose about 1" in coverage going from stock to 3" tubes. This wasn't a big issue for me, as it's barely noticeable to the naked eye. And my Jeep passed inspection just after installing these, with no mention of tire coverage. Though this will vary depending on how picky your inspection place is.
If you want to go the 100% legal route, you'll probably want to go with the 4.5" fenders. But from what I've collected about coverage laws and how they're enforced, the general idea is that as long as they're not jutting out an extremely noticeable distance like 3", you'll most likely go unnoticed. Besides, there's plenty of other *technically* not legal things on my rig I've never gotten stopped for.
And if all else fails, I've heard of people using that plastic garden edging to make their own make-shift flares.
Hope this helps!

Those fenders are on my list BUT i'm not sure if I need 3" or 4.5" (other brand of fender). I MIGHT run 1" wheel spacers in the future but that's a maybe.
Here's how she sits now:

|mikhail2400||Man I want those tube fenders!! nice work|

Well, my annoyingly-long journey to replacing my fenders is at a close. Finally have my C&C Fabs 3" flare tubes on. I enjoyed wiring my new side markers, as i got to play with diodes & resistors. And i enjoyed learning a bit of fabrication in repairing my brush guard, and making the brackets for my side marker.
Other than that, i got brand new front brakes for inspection. Painted my calipers red while i was in there to add a splash of color behind my wheel spokes. She's sittin' pretty again. Until i break something else that'll require me to upgrade

|SolarColumbia||Sanded, epoxy primed and painted rust spots on fender around bolt holes for fender flare. Painted brake drums with one coat Rustoleum Rust Reformer followed by Rustoleum gloss black. One rear wheel was torqued on to like 200+ foot lbs and I broke a flex head and an extension getting the lug nuts off. Had to use 2 ft length of pipe over the tool and pull really hard. Will have to replace some tools and probably pick up a 40" 3/4 drive breaker bar in case this ever happens again. First time taking wheels off since I got the Jeep so I don't know who to 'thank.'|

|ChaTownTJ||Installed two clamp collars on my sway bar. It has been shifting and rubbing the frame on the driver's side, which made this terrible screeching sound. Ordered from McCaster-Carr on Saturday and received them today. First "modification" I've made since I bought it. Big moment!|
