This last weekend, I installed flush mount LED tail and license plate lights on the TJ. Now I have LED's all around! :hack:

Yesterday, I ordered a Advance Adapter cable shifter for the transfer case. No more linkage to worry about. (Jeep really did a crappy design on these from the factory)

I will say that I love the way the t-case shifts since I installed the Novak cable shifter(once I figured out the t-case issue).

Did some prep work on the trailer yesterday.  Hopefully I can get the Jeep looked over either tomorrow or Friday.  I'm ready to go WHEEL!!!

Got my transfer case shifter in Friday. Spent about 2hrs. "pre-assembling" the shifter part of it yesterday. This thing is really built stout! The bad news---ABSOLUTLY THE WORST INSTRUCTIONS I HAVE EVER SEEN!!! Their web site had some customer comments about their instructions and they were correct! I'm pretty good at figuring out how something mechanical works, but this was something else! (the picture of it on their site was the most helpful thing I found) Their instructions are more concerned about removing the cup holder than assembling the shifter itself! Now, I've just got to crawl under it and start the dirty work!

Well I finally got them. JKS sway bar quick disconnects, Installed them last weekend and they look great, but I have a question maybe someone could help me with. The install said that the sway bar needs to be at a 10 degree angle so I adjusted the length to 11" center to center. My Question is since the TJ sway bar as a kick up on the end could that be my 10 degree angle?

I just have mine set so that there is very little tension on them at rest. Just maybe a slight push down or lift to get them hooked back up.

Put in a new clock spring.  A nice, easy one beer job.

Unless it doesn't work, and I have to do it two or three more times which seems to be my habit lately.

I'm working on it...  after gears I'm thinking about doing a long arm kit.   I have to make this thing drivable to and from the trails around Vegas :)

Got the motor in the Lexus 450 that I bought for Ardenne.  Got the center diff lock switch installed, the 7 pin mod done, new console installed, and fixed the passenger side power seat!

Goodbye carpets and rear seat on JK Rubicon. Lighter and ready for more dirt and no more hassle of caring for deep cleaning. Ready for whatever trip crossing my schedule
