Also go a chance to try out the hitch on the LOD bumper... Looks like my next mod is airbags in the rear springs.. and a color change for my DRZ !
The weight of the bike and carrier caused the shifter to make contact with the dash console!!

Also installed "black rock" center hub covers.. really cleaned up the look of the wheels, not sure why these were not on there before...
Also funny side note, the covers say BLACK ROCK and below that it says Made in The USA all stamped in the steel.. then on the inside of the cover there is a sticker that says "made in china" WTF!! LMFAO

|endlesshydro||The Power switch and air pressure gauge is mounted in the dash top pod... Must say i like the position, but the fit and finish of the dash pod is less then desireable. same goes for the pillar pod gauge pod (not pictured)|

So finally got the Viair system, installed it last weekend, wasnt crazy about the mounting location but it has its perks, my old setup was on the fender well and that seemed to hinder rear seat space. Which was never an issue however this year were rolling with a babyseat and more gear for the baby then for recovery!
The Benifits of the mounting position (even tho it looks like i took the easy road) are
The drain on the tank is easy to get to and actually drain cause it hangs over some dead space.
The pump is off the floor away from any possible water intrusion
I get to keep the speaker box. (more on this below)
The Pump should stay a bit cooler.
Access to the tank is extremely easy.
Ok so the deal with the speakerbox... It was in the truck when i bought it, never a mod i would do in a jeep however it was already there and i have been enjoying it more then i thought i would. So to make it more senceable i removed one of the subs it was making a crackling noise anyway, that exposed a decent size void in the box. So now i will close up the big hole where the speaker was and cut a door into the back of that side of the box. Creating a small tool box or equiptment storage box! Pics to come soon.. as this idea is still in the planning stages.

I had these exact ones on my first jeep never gave me a problem and there super cheap to boot!
i get them from here, walmart sells them to but here is cheaper...
buy a 4 1/2" hole saw from lowes or home depot, or a air saw...
|11-14-2012 06:05 AM|
Wow Good eye!! Thanks! there were absoultly no instructions with them LOL then again i guess your not supposed to need them if your buying 150 disco's LMAO..

Your disconnects are not on properly.
I don't have a picture of mine, but it shows the hoop over the sway bar end. Nice jeep though.

|vtjohn||Is that rear license plate trimmed on the right hand side? Like the look of how you have it mounted, but if it is trimmed I couldn't do that here in Va. Like your build so far!|

|endlesshydro||Yea i wouldnt mind mixing it up with some other local jeepers, however i have a 1yr old now which limits my trips well at least till next year when i will be more comfortable taking her with me|
|10-19-2012 09:43 AM|
|Irongrave||ahh if you were central or northern I'd tell you to check out North Jersey Jeep Club, lots of good guys and gals in that club|

|10-19-2012 09:30 AM|
|endlesshydro||Yea agree about the BL.. however i am local to the pines and we just have water water and more water... my old jeep had a 3" BL and that was excessive this one has a 2" so its a tad calmer.. my old jeep had a acutal bildge pump on the floor.. started out as a joke but actually came in handy!|
|10-19-2012 09:29 AM|
|Irongrave||where in NJ are ya?|
|10-19-2012 09:25 AM|
|97flexy||thats cool how you made your old jeep outta some one elses, but you should think about getting rid of that big(2"+) BL for a small Spring lift and a 1 or 1.25" BL.|
|10-19-2012 09:18 AM|
Well the list is long and with the savings on the purchase alot of stuff will be bought right off the bat.
