If you're using stock wheels it may not look how you envision it when all is said and done. But hey...it's a start. Go for it, then update your wheels to an 8 with decent back spacing when you can and it will give you a much different look, and probably the look you're going for.

I hate supporting rustoleum with how much trouble I've had with their poor nozzle design clogging, and their paints chipping in general. But they seem to be the only paint company to make kickass colors like this. If it holds up, I think it might be my favorite accent color for my 2005.
OK, looks black to me but I guess not to you so what color is it?

Is that the hammered black? I used that on my rear seat brackets.

Laggy Got seatbelts working again. Super easy. I took my friend's completely non-working seatbelt out of his 98 at work, and put it on the bench at home. Magic. Can't believe this info is so difficult to find. I'll do a write-up eventually...

yeah I was looking on Amazon, their products look good and are pretty cheap compared to others. going to order 2 for the front bumper, 2 for the windshield brackets and maybe 2 square ones if they fit for inside my rear bumper. then I could get a small light bar for somewhere else. let's see some pics of that light bar!

Laggy Installed Currie HD Steering. Took way too long. I noticed a couple things:

Tie Rod sleeve clamps are a PITA. They only sit in one spot because of groove (groove for thru bolt). There should be a groove channel all the way around each end. Why, because if you get your toe perfect, you run a huge chance of clamp being in a position to hit something during ends of steering lock. I had to nut up the tie rod for toe adjustment, as it took me awhile to figure out the only way to free spin is to remove bolt, and free up the clamp. For $500 I want the ability to freely rotate the clamps. By some miracle, my steering wheel is centered so I don't need to mess with the drag link sleeve clamp. Which I assume has the same issue.

Steering stabilizer. Probably too short of a stroke. It pretty much bottoms out on right turn, Prob stretches too far on left turn. Silly.

I'm not a fan of it honestly. What I will probably do is cut a section out of what's left of my old fenders and use it to make an access panel that is bolted in place with some stainless Allen head bolts. Knock the mesh out and out the panel in its place.

Laggy ...serviced my HiLift jack. Took apart all except for removing climbing pins and their cross pins. Cleaned, then used white lithium grease in all the prescribed spots. Also, took my Slime comp06 portable compressor and clipped the cig plug, wired in a 30A fuse, soldered connections, epoxied and heat shrunk. The compressor actually filled from 12-28 in 4:30 on the 4th wheel. Not bad actually. I'm getting an onboard in the next month, but this will be a good backup.

Laggy Wheeled the shit out of it.
Came back at night and got to run my ProComp S4 Explorer lights. Wow. They are the 4led with Spot pattern. Mounted on my bumper. Unreal light for the price. Eventually I'm gonna move them to the pillar and bumper mount flood pattern HID's. Either Hella Optilux 4" or ProComp Explorer 9". I'm liking this lighting stuff.

I was about to do an HID retrofit for the headlights, bi-xenon projector style...but I think I'm skipping that for now. I can get way more off-road lighting for the money.

Audibahn Rewired my hardtop pigtail to work with the older 10pin plug using a harness from a Dodge Neon.
