Those look like the version of the Rugged Ridge ones I bought about 5 years ago. I paid $145 shipped. At the time that was a real good price. Thinking $170 is good for them now. I'm OK with them. I mean they are not Weathertecs but then again the Weathertecs would probably be over $300. Easy.

I guess I ll give it a try

I mean. Sole purpose of the mats would be to protect the carpet. That's all.

I'm a metal worker and my boots always pick up metal chips and bring it in. Then it's difficult to vacuum out.

Easier to pull the mats and shake it out.

Here are the only shots I have of mine. Maybe give you a better idea. Like I said pretty sure those are the same as the Rugged Ridge ones.

Thinking maybe 4" round leds on the bumper might look better.

Also replaced the coil

Yesterday I replaced the thermostat because I noticed that it would never go up to 195. My initial though was that the thermostat broke apart and let the coolant continuously flow.

Nahhhhh. Somebody installed a 160 thermostat.

Now I finally have heat and now runs at 195. Let's see if the MPG's go up now.


Took the front seats out and replaced with ZJ seats.

I also replaced the headliner, while I was at it. I also added 2nd dome light above the rear seats. (I had done that on my first XJ years ago). But this time I did it a bit differently.... I also added in an OHC.

I also recovered the passenger side sun visor. Then I ran out of material (thanks to the OHC).

I ordered more material. When it arrive. I ll finish the drivers side.

Also ordered and upgraded the interior lights to LED. Including the vanity mirrors.
