Default Project "YJ-8 Wrambler"

Pulled the front end apart
Clearances shafts and installed full circle clips
Cleaned the mud out of the hubs and regreased all of the bearings, that's always fun.
Went to drive it to work tonight and it died halfway there, I think it's just a coil but still frustrating

Default Project "YJ-8 Wrambler"

I've been giving the top some tlc before I install the new window
It's taking a lot more paint then expected

I finished painting the top
It took a can and a half of white, crazy

Tonight we got the hard top on and new slider window installed, what a pain
That's definitely a 3 person job

Through the factory switch
The led bulbs go right in place of the factory
Just the fact that they are white instead of yellow makes a huge diference

New answer to that is slightly
They don't dim the same but the brightness doesn't bother me, I like it

Default Project "YJ-8 Wrambler"



Stretched the legs on the jeep for the first time in a long time
And it was the first time wheeling the new tires
They seem to work good
My winch controller wasn't working right so I need to look into that
I think (hope) it's full of badlands clay
Good day of wheelin with friends!

no problem guys. The other thing to remember is that if you mounted a flood on windsheild brackets you would get horrible glare off the hood. The same hold true to a roof mounted bar so you only want spots. I only really like floods for backup lights so you don't blind everyone behind you and you are less concerned with distance.
