    Midland MXT275 antenna mount in stock radio antenna location? And, value of a 6db gain whip antenna?

    I don't have a picture of it, but I used this same adapter and drilled the 5/8" hole in the left fender. Tightened it, ran by rg8x through the shock mount hole, into the firewall and into the radio. Perfect 1:1 swr on all gmrs channels. 👍🏻

    Best GRMS Radio?

    That's the one I just got for my tj and love it. Easy to program and works great. My only issue, and it's a small one, is its kind of a pain to adjust the volume with one hand. It's really a first world problem, bc it's not hard to do, just tedious.

    Should I upgrade my Dana 35 axle?

    If you're having trouble visualizing this, do this. Watch YouTube videos of jeeps wheeling, in different places. Then look if they included a spec list in the video, or comment section. Find one with a Dana 35 and tire setup close to what you want and watch how it wheels. Maybe that can help...

    Best GRMS Radio?

    I recently got into gmrs radios, thanks to youtube. I decided on the wouxun kg-sx20g for a mobile in my jeep. great little radio with good power. ONLY beef I had with it, was mounting locations. I had it mounted above the windshield using a rugged ridge bracket I had already in place for the CB...

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Been getting the TJ ready for wheeling next week. Added the Barnes engine skid plate this week. Very sturdy and heavy gage steel. Only issue I've found so far... no trap door the engine oil to drain out for change. I guess I'll just let it run down the plate into a large, shallow pan 🤣🤣...

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Yeah, don't remember if they said it was for a 4.0 and 2.5 or not. It's pretty beefy.

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Update: The evaporator coil I bought, Four Seasons #554188 did not fit the high and low pressure lines. I tried for about an hour and had a mechanic with years of experience try as well, and still could not get them to click in. So, if I were you, I would avoid buying that particular product. I...

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    It's made by cooling care. All aluminum radiator. It's funny because Amazon says it doesn't fit my vehicle, but his description says it for my jeep. Anyways, got it all finished and seems to be working great. Only issue was the fan shroud holes are fine thread and the factory screws won't work...

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Honestly, it really wasn't that hard to do, it's just tedious work. Lots of screws and connections. But overall, not that difficult.

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Haha, nothing bad. I just removed it because I started working while in the garage. Couldn't lift it all the way back, so I removed it. Makes it easier to work on 🙂

    What did you do to your TJ today?

    Deep into this project. Replaced the heater core, all the AC systems, condenser, compressor, accumulator, etc. And a new radiator. Figured I'd upgrade it since I had to get the condenser out. Almost done now.

    Broken axle shaft

    May be another dumb question, do I need to change my front Dana 30 splines to match the rear as well. I read that I don't need to, just the gears in the axles have to match if I change them?

    Broken axle shaft

    I don't want to start a whole new thread, so I'll just ask in this one since it's about axles. I'm looking to upgrade my Dana 35 and was wondering how I can tell if the axle is capable to do a "super" upgrade. From what I've been reading so far, and it a LOT, it's for Dana 35's with the C-clip, which is...
