    What brand of tires should I go with?

    I'll give a thumbs up for the WildPeaks. I've put about 15k miles on them and they remain dead quiet. Had them through last years winter and found them well suited. They get an 'OK' rating for heavy rain, but to be fair, it could just be the size not the tread.

    Hyline Oversized Tire Mount compatible with Rugged Ridge Spartacus HD Tailgate Reinforcement?

    I am using the Rugged Ridge Spartacus HD Tire Carrier Casting hinge and am very happy with it. It mates up with a wonky angled RR Spartacus HD Tire Mount that I really dislike. It works great and in tandem with the hinge casting but I don't like the angled presentation and it cantilevers out...

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Wasted a whole bunch of time installing Amazon seat warmers.. What a disappointment. It is an easy but time consuming install. Between getting the heating elements in place under the Bartacts, pulling the center console, running the wiring and mounting the switches it was a good few hours...

    Mirror Relocation Question

    Glad it works for you! The mounts I have were designed to be located lower on the windshield hinge.. you can just see the mark the rubber backing pad left on the paint below. They haven't budged in a year so I can't reason to fret over a second bolt.

    Mirror Relocation Question

    I've tried ll the ones listed (or something similar) and found my final solution eliminated the need to swap on and off, has no blind spots, aren't blocked with doors on or off and have at least what I think is a cool retro CJ look rather than a goofy 'I moved my stock mirrors to the a-pillar'...

    Touchless Car Washes

    My TJ is a DD and I haven't committed to retiring it for winter just yet. Having too much fun. Once the snow comes (or threatens to do so) I hit the drive through self-serve hand wash booths once a week.. for about $10-$15 per visit. I do the best I can with what I have available.. getting...

    Mirror Relocation Question

    Just installed a set of 5” round convex mirrors. They clear the A-pillars just fine but are way wider field of view. Like the retro CJ look but Maybe too wide of a view. I’ll live with them a bit before casting final vote

    To sell or not to sell? 2004 LJ

    I feel your pain on the auto versus manual. Driving an auto numbs my brain. That said, you’ve got a rare ride well sorted and that counts for a lot. As much as I want to say sell it and find a manual, the value of the build done your way exceeds the potential enjoyment of the manual. Keep...

    Pin assignments for rear wiper and defroster plugs?

    Can one of you electrical guru's interpret this for me please... I want to repurpose the rear defogger circuit's switched power & ground. The connector to the switch had switch power to the blue/green tracer and I assume black is ground. Does that match the wiring schematic?? I can...

    Help identifying tire carrier

    I understand there was a cargo basket option as well. Not sure if it was the common Bestop basket setup or something proprietary to the carrier.

    What have you used SEM trim paint on?

    I did the door latches with Krylon two part, paint/prime in Satin Black. Came out amazing. Minimal prep other than scuffing and cleaning. Truth told, this two part paint is why I have not used the SEM Trim Paint

    Pin assignments for rear wiper and defroster plugs?

    Hoping to cannibalize one of the stocks circuits as a source of switched power for seat heaters. I am soft top only so don’t and won’t use the rear wiper or defroster. Looks like both circuits are switched power. The defroster is timed.. is the timer incorporated in the switch or elsewhere in...

    Coiled air hose

    I have two I am not using.. Not sure of the brand. Used both on my JKs with perfect performance. I switched to a non-coiled hose because it was easier to store where I wanted it. You can have one or both if you want...
