Still waiting on tires. Installed a dual battery maintainer on the Jeep. Installed a "bulkhead" 110v plug for plugging in the 110v without having to open the hood or have a cord hanging out some place. Did a little clean up on the wheels. Replaced the plastic mirror bushing with Al ones. You would thing Kentrol would at least use the AL ones with their chrome mirrors.

Not sure where I got them they are available on EBay though. I had both black and white went with white. The Stencils for the tailgate came from Kaiser Willy's. Thinking about it the white one may have come for there also. I got the black later I think off EBay.

Killing more time waiting on tires.
Mounted my High Lift Jack. It was one of the 58in ones took about 6 inches off of it. When it was long I had to off set to the drivers side so when the carrier opened the foot would not hit the top. But then it suck out past the top on the other end so I cut it down a bit so it would be centered better and not catch some one in the head.

Still fighting the leaky front brake lines. Thought I had but nope! Ordered new lines and hardware from Metal Cloak and what was delivered by Fedex today was a pair of JK Shocks. I new the box was too heavy for brake lines as soon a tried to pick it up with one hand. Another 3 or 4 day wait.

Some JK guy is wondering why it takes weeks to get shocks, and someone may be wondering if these brake lines fit

When I called about the brake lines the gentleman I talked with said "how did we get from brake lines to shocks"? He ask me for the number on the shocks, I told him and He says" ah ha the part number for the brake line and a pair of those shocks are only one number different. Lines 1108, Shocks 1018 so he is sending me my brake lines and a return label for the shocks.

So many people with the larger wheels any more you get used to seeing the 17-19 the old 15 look tiny in the big tires.
