You are going to love your new seat covers, I have the same ones.

I already do. They are expensive but well worth it in my opinion

Thanks for the input. I really like how they look, so if they are comfortable that kind of seals the deal. The last few years (basically since I bought the Jeep) I've become much more of a "buy once, cry once" kind of guy. It just doesn't seem to work out when I try to save a few bucks the first time around!

I bought mine right here on this board in the for sale section the other day. There is another set on there now so I would check there frequently and save some dough.

Installed my new Motobilt Crusher rear bumper

It's been sitting in my basement for 2 months and now if its finally warmer in PA. I got it bare metal and painted it with Rustoleum self etching primer and Rustoleum bedliner. Then topped it off with matte clearcoat. It has worked well for me with the sliders.

The bumper was actually a tight fit probably because I undercoated part of the backside. I'm very happy with how it looks.

Added some Daystar bumpers to my new MORryde tire carrier.




Also started working on my onboard air setup. Now to decide about wiring (SPOD, Appolo, etc.)

Installed teraflex leveling kit. Wheel spacers are definitely needed but it looks so much better.

Switched over from CB to HAM with this inexpensive BaoFeng until I decide on a permanent rig for the Jeep.


Jeep is still a bit dirty from the last trail run.

This weekend I installed Teraflex sway bar quick-disconnects and brake line anchors. I also wired the dash cam to the switch I put in for it a few weeks back.

I tried to remove and clean a bad wheel speed sensor but broke it instead. Can't win 'em all.

Things are coming along nicely. I've still got a big list of things to do but the next ones need nicer weather so I can paint stuff.

I installed a Hopkins tow harness and the Hopkins dinghy tow harness. They sure didn’t make it easy to get wired into the passenger side rear light.

Lewis is The Man, but Bottas has a shot at it this year. Ferrari are tripping all over their own d**ks. And Red Bull will get the crumbs.

Meanwhile none of them can rock crawl! 🙂

I am curious about your radio mount as shown here. Can you tell me about it, please?

It is the Jeepuniq I bought for my Midland CB, but itís holding my BaoFeng now. If for some reason I keep the CB, I will replace it with their dual mount that will hold both.

Lol. True enough! Lewis is the Man, but I love for him to have some competition so he can prove it. The only competition heís had lately was when Nico and he were teammates.

Sadly, no, at least not yet. I'm swapping out a PSC steering pump and adding a cooler. I'm already running their Big Bore box.

Other things going on is new front and rear bumpers and wider PS fenders.

LED Headlights

Installed Oedro LED headlights today and it was a bust. Defective out of the box and total waste of time. Lesson learned (again through the years) - you get what you pay for.

Man, that looks great.


For the sake of contribution, I installed a gobi roof rack last weekend.
