I did plastic surgery to my princess and I am happy to announce she's no longer an angry jeep, I removed the angry eyes grill it came with from the previous owner and added an OEM grill. Retainer clips were rusted so I'm borrowing dad's jeep to go buy new ones right now. Also my dad yesterday gave me some blind spot mirrors and I installed them today, I guess he still wants to keep his big boy safe on the streets.

That's a a thing of beauty! (The actual driveshaft.....)

That ain't no lie. It's a shame it's mounted where no one can see it. The finish on it was like a show car. At first I was only changing the front. After it came in, I had to have a matching rear.

Ordered a set of Cooper Discoverer ATP 285/70R17 - Discount Tire has both $70 instant savings (*until the 15th) and 10% military discount if you order on line, so it really was 'An offer I couldn't refuse.' Also ordered the Rugged Ridge Spartacus spare tire carrier so I can replace the OEM spare with a 285 as well.

  • 4.88 Yukon gears
  • Yukon HD diff covers

Jeep has been making a little squeaky noise when I press the brake pedal, saw many videos until I found one with the same issue, put some lube on it and I hope its a $6 fix and nothing else

I have had a number of Jeeps over the years all with some amount of hood dancing, including this one. JL latches on quite a while back and have never seen it since.

did you drill to make them fit?
I just used blunt tip pliers and popped the alignment tabs off so as not to have to drill. They align just fine. 2 years trouble free and no hood bounce.

any rotation problem with doing that? I've read those clips are to prevent rotation on the latch

Washed the soft top then hung it up in the garage and gave it a once over with a rattle-can of fabric/vinyl paint... should look good till Mon, possibly Tue.
