I finished dyeing my carpet I think it turned out great.... I also added sound deadening and insulation while the carpet was out.... Then I got bored and had some green leds laying around so....

Long time no update.... A few items I want to do but am scared to do because I feel like I'm going to screw up.... The heat sucks bad it's basically useless and the heater core has been flushed 3 times this month and was flushed last year.... Might just need to replace it but I'm scared to tackle it A) alone and B) no knowledge really of how its done.... I want to do new injectors also, but money is tight... Landscaping is slowing down fast. I want to add a transmission cooler but for some reason just kinda worried about that too.... I wish I had someone who liked to working on cars for free food that lived near me... But unfortunately I haven't found that person yet.... Anyway just thought I'd update and maybe get opinions? If anyone has any

didn't take long to wire and install either... But then again not exactly my first time... If you've seen any of the other lights I got the leds off amazon... Just got the 16 foot roll best deal

loving this build bro! im a senior in high school this year and started the build on my 01 XJ last year during the summer. reminds me of when i was running around on my 3" RC AAL lift with a set of 31" RT/s on some 15x8 cragars. loved that look. ended up going up 1.5" higher on lift and 2" taller of a tire within a matter of a year lol.

Thanks! I'm only a junior still got some time left in high school I started about the beginning of sophomore year with no job which means little money, but I think it's come a ways since I started and I love my jeep. I can't decide if I want bigger tires because that's a lot more money, because now I can squeeze by without gearing, but any larger tires and I'll have to gear probably.

Thought I'd post about when I towed a friend home a while back... Highschool budget 1999 xj build-image-2496154687.jpg Pulled his Honda Accord like 5 miles. His clutch went out so he couldn't really drive it still had power steering and brakes though. The jeep did well. Up a few hills too didn't think it had it in it but it did. Oh and the dirt in the street may have been from me.... Oops

Had it towed to a shop today.... The serpentine belt wouldn't stay on. I have no clue what's wrong I just need it fixed because it's my way to school. It's always something...

Anyone have a guesstimate of how much a hood would be? Doesn't matter what color just needs to be fairly straight... Just curious what itll set me back.

For anyone who might care/see this. The reason I'm looking for a new hood is because I'm pissed, bored, and recently single so I decided hey I'll do something stupid that will probably end up being a waste of money. I'm going to buy a hood and paint it with chalkboard paint. Yeah ok kinda ricey... Just thought it would be fun we'll see.

Was backing down my driveway the other day and couldn't see anything... So I decided NEW REVERSE LIGHTS!!! I mean after all I don't spend any more money on my girlfriend since she dumped me so spend it on jeep... Enough background... I'm going to try to squeeze these lights into my stock rear bumper we'll see how it goes....
