Well Zippos schedule and mine finally aligned and we banged out the tire carrier.

Turned a UHMW slug for the swingout to rest on.


got it as close as we could while allowing for 40s in the future.  :sly:

I bumped my hard top in July and it made me worried about messing it up wheelin. They are pretty expensive to replace. Luckily there was very minimal damage. I picked up a used soft top that is in great condition. Ill run it in the summer and when I go wheelin .

Noticed a small puddle of coolant under the jeep and looked and saw a drip. Looks like the tank and the core are leaking . Dang plastic tanks. Anyway got the replacement just need to put it in. After that it looks like ball joints and new steering will be going in as well.

I have a pro rock but it still uses ball joints. The dynatrac ball joints are not worth the money in my option for this rig

New radiator is in. I had a small amount of coolant leaking between the radiator and the plastic tank. Got it all fixed.

I was surprised at how much "tougher" your Jeep looks with the soft top installed yesterday.  It's funny how the lines of a soft top are not really that much different than the hard top, but it makes a difference.

Are you going to trim the rear flares to match the look of the fronts?

I donít think so. I actually kinda wish I kept the fenders stock. Iíll eventually replace them with some metal cloak ones.
