So its been awhile, but im still doing odds and ends here, finally picked up a set of Pillow top seats for her. they are in amazing condition and look wonderful installed. I also put a CB on the console in front of the passenger seat and installed a set of cheap-o Harbor freight driving lights on the roof. Ill take some pics tomorrow, gotta clean up some more stuff lol

well finished wiring up the seats and installed a new Rubicon Express trackbar. Had an alignment done and off I went in the storm. Ive had many 4WD vehicles in my time and have driven a lot others including a Military H1. This only second to the H1 is the best offroad capable vehicle and snow vehicle i have driven. MAN I LOVE MY JEEP!!
