It seems like every 6 months you’re off the road in the TJ and have related projects :(
It seems like that yes haha...Ive had my TJ for 7 years and its normally passed without any issues, the problems have only started coming up the last 2 health checks (1 year).....think its a combo of the TJ getting old and the checking is getting really picky.

Over here we pretty much just have emissions, which is based on the age of vehicle. Though I’m sure at some point they’ll try to change that and outlaw fun things.

Painted the interior doors black. Going all black in the interior. I found this TJ sitting under some trees and hadn’t run in a year. New battery cranked it and I drove off for 1K. Done some TLC on it and have started making it “mine”. I have loved becoming a Jeep owner. It’s such a fun hobby!

I’ve replaced the valve cover gasket, alternator, passenger hub, driver side brake caliper, radiator and put in a lot of elbow grease. I used he duplicolor vinyl and cloth paint. It covers great. I’ve used it on my fenders and the roll bar pads as well.

Exactly what I plan on doing to the interior of my black tj. Except I'm going blue. Your jeep is looking good.

It doesn't look like they take up the same space as the originals? And what is the long base they are sitting on?
Not quite sure what you’re asking. While holding them in my hands, they appeared to be the same size as stock (maybe a couple millimeters smaller in diameter). Depth about the same.
