Ordered a switch to direct wire the new rear lights on the white 03 , and picked up oil and filter.

Rust Reformer treated the cut bumper ends on the 06 's SkinCrawler bumper , installed Stableseat bushings in both seats (a great improvement for the cost...sloppy seats creep up on you...it will surprise you how much better it sits and how much quieter it can be )


Put the top for what I believe to be the last time this year, left the windows out and went for gas and an errand...

.....the smell of woodsmoke filled the cab, the Eagle's "Take it to the limit " came on, and life was perfect for 3:05 seconds.

No surprise my seat bushings are gone but I don't notice the seats being wobbly, just difficult to slide. Did the new bushings help with that? I would certainly think so.

Finally got my Bartact seat covers and installed them. I had a set on my TJ so I knew I wanted another set. This time I ordered the rear seat also as it is much more usable in the LJ. I was hoping the Bartact "graphite" color was the same as the Hothead "graphite" color but the headliner is darker. I like the look very much but if I was to do it again I would get the headliner in the lighter grey color.

Don't even worry about it, or mention it to anyone in person. Why? Because looking at that picture I would have thought the headliner and the seat covers were about the same, just looks different because the seats are getting more light.

I don't like when things don't match either. Sell me those covers for half price.;) Looks great.

Yes they make the entire track and lift mechanism feel really great... I declare the seats fill firmer... I know that sounds nuts.

Absolute Wits End makes a cap for the coupler. Its a bit expensive (IMO) for what it is but will certainly help keep the road grime out of there

That is nicer than mine. I cheaped out and just got a spare coupler and packed it full of JB Weld. Works, but not nearly as pretty.

Oh and I forgot to mention that it makes a really nice projectile when pressure is applied and you pull the release.

And no matter what anyone says, I DID NOT PUT THAT DENT IN MY WIFE'S NEW HONDA!!
