JK Show & Tell Whether they're just poser shots in your driveway or hardcore action shots on the trail, if you've got photos or videos of your Jeep JK Wrangler (or any JK for that matter that you think is worth showing off, inside or out), we want to see them so please post them here! Likewise, if you are wanting to see a photo of something specific like an aftermarket JK part or poser shot with a specific setup, this is the place to ask for it.

What was done to your JK this week?

--Put on the XRC8 winch
--Put on the RRC Stinger
--Learned that XHD bumper has to come back off or sway bar dropped from frame to put new factory fog lamp in.
--Last week I done the XHD rear
--Wired the 5 KC's to the RRC uppper section of the light bar to mil-spec standards
--Tomorrow is the great recall trip to the dealership
--When I get home I am going to start the wiring for the lowers of the light bar, try to get all the inside done
--Saturday is light bar install except for switches, the daystar panel is being shipped and will not have until next week

P.O.O. (parts on order)
Crager 15X10 wheel for test to insure fit before I order the rest
Daystar lower switch panel
Teraflex 1" spacers to compensate for the weight on the front

Parts needed to order
4 more wheels if they clear properly
Adjustable rear track bar
Rear Adjustable 4 link bars...(missed them on previous order, will do tomorrow)

The to do list.
Install light bar
Install daystar panel ( arrives Monday)
Check wheel (arrives Tuesday)
Install lift...sooner or later, still milking the factory tires for every mile...

In 2001 I traded my 98 TJ daily driver for a 2001 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab. Loved the truck but always regretted not keeping the 98 TJ as a 'recreational' vehicle.

So much so that in 2005 I ended up picking up a 99 TJ to have as my weekend ride.

Really sad part? The 98 TJ I traded for the truck had under 40K miles on it, was in perfect shape, well maintained and a great looking Chili Pepper Red / Tan Top Jeep. When I was shopping for my 99 TJ in 2005 I ran a Carfax on my old 98 that I traded and it showed that it was totaled while still titled to the dealer a few weeks after I traded it.

Installed AEM Brute Force Air Intake... piece of cake only took 30 minutes.
Hardest part was getting the IAT off the old hose.

Just picked up my Jeep from an auto body shop to get the hindges repaired. All the hindges had the bubbling paint/rust issue. At first Chrysler denied the warranty work to have all the hindges replaced per the body shop. Instead Chrysler said they would approved the work to have them bodyworked & repainted....

I had to re-do the grill mod, not because of the material used but more my error I didn't let the glue sit long enough and some of the anchors came off. On the flip side while I had the grill of I found one of my rachet wrenches wedged between the radiator and the grill.

Did you paint the ring on your beadlocks? I like them and may do that myself?
