Added the Teraflex HD Alpha hinge reinforcement to the already installed HD Alpha carrier.. I was getting too much tailgate flex with these heavy ass wheels and tires.. now it's rock solid.. doesn't even move.. im happy with it.

I believe their suggestion is to use #52 fuse under the hood, passenger side. They will turn on any time the Jeep is on.
I think you’re right. #57 is the heated seats i think? I ended up tapping into both since I have two voswitches in my rig

Got rid of the ugly junction box that I had my 12v panel and solar system in, and replaced it with a simple board and layout.

It runs the domestic, rear window interior lights, auxiliary 12v and USB connections, as well as the 200w solar panels atop the roof.

I used my Dymo label maker to add a reference sticker to the fuse box lid.

Heady stuff! 😁

Was hoping to do this with my old man (and his lift), but I got tired of looking at the box. Today I swapped the old beer can muffler for an Injen high tuck axle back. First had to loosen the OE clamp - 15mm, which I didn't have of course, so a trip to the hardware store was in order. Then getting the muffler off the rubber hangers, which was a massive pain.

First one down.

Oldie out. The thing was stuck pretty tight on the mid pipe, thankfully after a bit of garage door lubricant and physical persuasion it came off.

New hotness. Be prepared - the instructions don't say whether it slips into the mid or over like the OE does. It's the latter, and my pipe needed a bit of convincing with pliers before it would slip over the mid. Also, the instructions say to use a 17mm socket on the replacement clamp, which is wrong - I should have tested the 15mm I had on hand. I guess now I've got one more socket though, so it could be worse!

Doesn't tuck up as high as I'd hoped, but it has much better flow over the OE with the massive pinch in the pipe, and the sound is great as well.

Nooo! Just the spray gun. I air dry on the way home. Then use Turtle Wax ceramic spray coating with a microfiber towel.
Hey, just picked up my 23 Willys, and got some Turtle Wax Ceramic, how do you like it ?

Thanks

I'm not familiar with other products so I can't compare it with others but it definitely looks good after applied and water beads off it pretty good.

@JP29
Is this the Injen that you purchased? Just want to figure out the value proposition of 7 C-notes for a muffler... 🤔


I've not seen that seat fabric pattern before. It is unique to the Islander trim? And has it worn off already, as the photo suggests? That's unfortunate if that's what occurred.

It is unique to the Islander and it is worn on the passenger seat bottom only. Weird that it’s better preserved on the driver’s side.

Yesterday, technically, but got the side parts of my CJ Renegade inspired stripes on. Will do the hood portion of them some time this week.

Cannot wait to see the finished product.
Are you also changing the Rubicon decals to something retro? Are you going to go with white wheels too?
I was going to go the retro look but I didn't think it would look good with Sting grey. A black Jeep would be perfect for a retro style Jeep

I've got the retro "soft 8" style Baja Xtremes in gunmetal to pick up on the gray inserts in the Rubicon grille. So, not a pure vintage take on the old CJ Renegades. I'm leaning towards "Renegade" in the JL Rubicon font for the hood sides but I haven't sorted out how to best fit it in with the tri color theme.
