Didn't do much on the jeep today before work was to cold and wasn't feeling a 100% did some adjusting on my back hatch got it closing and latching nicely started working on my brake lights couldn't even get the bulbs out so I said hell with that project for now but I did get my motor mounts in today and those things are sweet heavy duty and well built I suggest everyone get a set if these Brown dog mounts mine are completely shot so was a have to for me also is American made part doesn't get better than that
