Hmmmm ........... where do i start ?? Recently purchased and installed a new Supertop NX , ( really dig the sunrider feature ) installed the Cobra 75 cb .....(the little silver box that you mount out of sight fits perfectly behind where the ashtray was removed by the factory) Finally got a matching wheel and a new fullsize spare. Currently I am revitalizing the set of used 7 " flares I bought with some Krylon Fusion paint. Also touching up the Kongo Kage before the summer install. Sorry for no pics, I havent figured out how to post them from my iPhone.

Haven't installed yet. Still weighing choices between building stock 44 or go with PR44.

Nothing major since my new wheels and tires, but I did make myself a set of grab handles out of paracord. I like the rear ones fine, but think a redesign for the fronts is coming. (I do not like the location - bolted one end to windshield frame by the sun visor)

Got the Kongo Kage with the Rage roof basket all bolted up this morning. Gonna have to alter the factory tire carrier again to fit the 33" spare in between the safari tailgate basket / gerry can holder. Then I'll be ready for the 4 day overland trip !!!

I did a lil bumper mod last weekend...rubbed a stump out at Rush springs :O the wife wasn't too happy about it. Goes to show how squishy those plastic caps are, she was with me and didn't notice we'd bumped it.

Over the last few months I have made some changes on my rig.  I got tired of the silver Moab wheels so I painted them metallic charcoal grey using duplicolor wheel paint & clear coat, installed a set of 32" BFG M/T's, front and rear Rugged Ridge all terrain floor mats, Detroit Truetrac limited slip in the dana 30, Spartan lunch box locker in the dana 44, & a Superchips Flashpaq programmer.


Parts I have yet to install- Rough Country sway bar quick disconnects, Cobra WX ST 75 cb w/Wilson flex antenna, & a Smittybilt XRC8 comp series winch w/synthetic rope(need a bumper for this one)


I am also weighing my options on transfercase replacements.

Sounds like you're getting ready for Rock the Ozarks?  You going to make it this year?

My Jeep has sat mostly untouched since December!  :(  We drive it around town now and then.  Life has been busy, and funds have been down.

My Tahoe has gotten new shoes, however.  Hope to do a little suspension work soon as well, if funds allow.

I would like to make it. I've been with work so it's going to be a last minute decision. I've got to get this t-case situation figured out.
