like I said, I have had my jeep since 2012 when I graduated from college. my grand parents bought the jeep as a gift. 4500 out the door. it had 146000 on it.

Looks good! I like the material used on the headliner, reminds me of speaker box carpeting


Did your threads just strip out on the cross member? I feel like your only options would be to drill and tap, or drill/tap and helicoil to retain the factory threading.
