I am finally finishing my headlight harness. I was waiting for my H4 connectors to arrive. Instead of making my own with the parts from rallylights I ordered some from headlightplugs.com. Ordered some high temp with 12 gauge wires with soldered and crimped connectors. Very pleased with the quality and price.

They are probably working on outlawing large vehicles, and anything without soft foam bumpers and hoods as well..

Installed new transmission tunnel rubber mat that I just got from Exmoor in the UK, I went with an aftermarket Bearmach version which I'm pretty pleased with. Earlier this week I replaced my shifter illumination assembly with a genuine new in box unit I found on ebay. Also replaced the vinyl trim around my seatbox with the new replacement LR part from RN. Oh and I replaced the rear loadspace mat. All this looked like a simple weekend job when I ordered it, it took two frustrating days and a 20' roll of double stick tape.

I just replaced the piece that goes around the seat box, don't know about the piece on top. Mine was pretty torn up on the sides entering and exiting the vehicle.

In your pic it looks like piece around sides has a flap on sides. Does it not? Looking on my phone

Do you have a link or part number to that? Is it genuine? That is the 94 style.

Thanks

I went with this option cause it seemed fairly close to what I had originally, I'm not too fond of the all-in-one floor mat/seat box cover/tunnel insulation options I've seen and I think the flaps will prevent tearing in that area where on the '97s it is seamed.

Mounted my Hi Lift jack and ladder yesterday. I used some Jeep hood mounts for the jack and trimmed about an inch off of them to keep the jack closer to the rack.

That ceiling height looks to make those lifts pretty worthless?!? Optical illusion?

Roof rack and hi-lift mount look good Jymmiejamz.

I changed the Master Slate Cylender about 3 months ago. I brought the Clutch Cylender from RovahFarm. 3 months later it's leaking again and I have to tap the truck with clutch fluid every 2-3 days.

Installing Terrafirma inverted cones. These were gold powdercoated on top of the standard gold zinc plating to keep corrosion at bay.

Also zinc electroplated @ 10.5A for 4 hours, and silver powdercoated two tub seat belt brackets to replace the originals on my truck. Should last a long time now. Would prefer to just galv this stuff, but that may have to wait for another day.

Almost done with my heater box rebuild. SPU two-part epoxy came in for the tub. All of this stuff happens about the same time, unfortunately.

Better check the fluid levels then.
