Looks like I'll be starting over again with that list too. The LJ I just bought has a broken shock so those are going in this weekend, but the fluid and consumables list I just finished on my TJ starts anew.

paddles? unless you have something other then the factory engine and axle the 4.0 and (hopefully) D44 wont like you very much. im not saying its not possible but its not necessary. my friends brother and dad both run paddles on their jeeps but the cj5 has a 351W and the old willys has a 383 SBC pushing close to 800hp.

CJ7258 Wash, wax, vacuum. Change fluids including tc, tranny and diffs. Grease everything that should be greased. Fab some jerry can mounts. Rework cb antenna mount. Weather permitting because of no garage!

Smarks24 I have plans to put a lift kit in, thinking of going with the zone 4.25" combo lift w/nitro, then getting some body armor and upgrading the tai lights to LED units. Looking at tube fenders but not sold on that look yet.

So far I haven't had that problem of the HD fading in and out. Maybe we have stronger FM stations where I live. But I agree that the sound is awesome when the HD and digital aspects kick in. Well worth it for the money IMHO.

New radiator, water pump, etc and then I'll tackle the 2" OME lift and warn winch.

Neal5280 I will be doing rocker guards, rear LEDs, BB, shocks, 8.8 (w/front regear), Chromo front shafts, if my wife doesn't leave me from all of this then a full set of MC control arms. That way I'll be ready for 35's this spring.
