I have a set of these wheels laying around. Came with my YJ when I bought it as extras. Have 4 of them. And the upgraded wheels also have 6 of them

Scott-CJ8 Removed the fender flares and running board/steps .... replacing with TJ flares and opening up the wells a bit for more flex room. Also adding black diamondplate to the rockers to cover up the holes left from the steps. Pics coming when it's done....
Also got extended brake lines on order... so much to do, so little time... gotta go wheelin' soon!

TheLastCenturian I started out the day bleeding break lines and ended up having to replace a break caliper because the blender valve wouldn't come out, so I ended up getting a new caliper from NAPA for like 30 bucks so it wasnt a bad day

So all is getting replaced along with my front right spindle because its bent and is not allowing me to turn left very well. So a ton of fun haha

COAinPaso Sorry guys, I'll back up from the jeep in the next photos, but blackedout is right, jerry cans. Those things are a sort of a pita, have to wedge a couple of towels between them and the rubbers on the tailgate so they don't bang up against them every time I hit a bump.

TennesseeYJ What i did to my YJ today: Took the Bimini top off and put the full soft top back on. It's supposed to rain tomorrow morning.

Cant arrive at the office looking like a drowned rat ya know.

Friday night my son and I were out hiking and got caught out with just the Bimini top. Which is normally fine, except the wind got so high I needed windshield wipers on the inside!!
