Jeep Sport Bars installed and Jeep Washed.
 
I got to wash my jeep today. I just installed the Jeep/Mopar sport bars this week too. I will use the sport bars when i get construction supplies for my side projects. Then later on i will get the Jeep/Mopar Roof Basket instead of the Rola Basket because it will bolt right to the sport bars.

I also decided that for the time being i will keep my JK wheels. I wanted to put the Stock Ronin II Wheels back on but the sale i had going fell through and i am starting to like the JK wheels again now that its clean. I also think the wheels will look better with a nice white lettered tire on them. I think the jeep will look great with a nice set of stock size or close all terrain tires and the basket on the roof.

I am going to look in to buying 245/70/17

BFG ALL Terrain T/A KO But the are about $175 each plus install and shipping on tire rack.

Nitto Terra Grappler AT is about $150 each local but no white lettering.

I LOVE white lettered tires. Especially big bolt raised white letters like the BFG AT or the big lettering on Wrangler MT/rs (they dont make that size MT/R with white letters for some reason)

Maybe one day god forbid i get in to a front end accident i can get the 08 front end.

Also my jeep is in massive need of a paint correction its got so many imperfections up close and the new paint on the drivers side rear 1/4, pass door, lift gate and rear bumper cover needs to be blended better.

I also need to install my new Bilstein 5150 Rear shocks this weekend as well.

Damn dude there is like no snow on the ground! I'm flying into Boston Sunday and am going to be working in Littleton Monday and Tuesday. Seems like the weather is gonna be alright.

I like those cross bars a lot - and also those wheels! I 100% agree they'd look real good with some beefier tires on there.

Yea, Its been a shitty winter. last 2 years we had reccord break snow amounts and this year we have not had over 3 feet total snow and its warmed up or rained in between snow storms so most of it is gone now.

Thanks for the compliments. I think my jeep just needs some nice white lettered at tires and it will look sexy.

The weather is supposed to be pretty good for the next few days as far as i have heard. Tomorrow is gonna be 55. Alot of people are breaking out the motorcycles already too. Whats in Littleton for work?

Thanks everyone. I got it a bit muddy this weekend going out the the Barn to see our horses. I love the nice shiny clean look with light mud spray. LOL.

Today i preped a bit for my new rear shocks. They are slightly used Bilstein 5150 remote resi rear shocks so i sanded them down and i am giving them a nice fresh coat of silver paint. Also had to trim the rear wheel well liners a bit to fit the fixed mounted resi on the top of the shock.

I also ordered all new shock eye bushings from Energy suspension to replace the slightly dry cracked bushings that were in them originally. I cant wait to install these and see how it rides. I loved my old xj with the remote resi shocks. It could take whoops and bumps at high speed and handle like a dream.

If my chrome mirror covers ever arrive i will put them on. right now i am working on a case file with eaby over those since that have not shown up yet and they were ordered over 3 weeks ago.

Finally i have a ported TB from Flyin Ryan coming soon as well.
