    It's probably about time everyone starts doing this instead of accepting mediocre products, so good on you!

    D... I'm Sorry man.......They suck ! :( You made the right move, IMO. I'm bet'n that that set was on the bottom of the warehouse pile & they were just fish'n for a sucker :censored:.. Most likely not a huge mover for your model & year...... I'm think'n:shrug:
    I am hoping that You'll have a better set sent to you on the next go.

    I finally finished installing my Ididit steering column along with a Grant steering wheel. What a relief to finally finish. When I purchased the Jeepster it had the original steering column (I think), but it was missing the turn signal stalk. It had a Signal-Stat 900 added to the column, but it wouldn't auto cancel so I ended up being "that guy" driving around with my turn signal on, but not turning. It drove me nuts! The new column will auto cancel and it has tilt too!


    I also installed a fire extinguisher to the roll bar.


    I finished filling the rear diff. I had installed a new differential cover a few weeks ago.


    I also changed the oil and filter. It was a good day!

    Resized_20191109_015104.jpeg I bought some utility lights to replace my LEDs on the windshield pillars. Reason is one LED quit working, plus my eyes prefer the older yellowish incandescent light over the white light of the LED. Also, after not being able to post pictures with the new phone, I have finally figured out (thanks to the help forum) how to get the job ]done by sending them to my text message first then saving them, thus automatically reducing the size.

    I closed the doors of the barn where "she" stands, cold weather coming, and I made a cat entrance in this door. For rodent control.

    I added an addition to the front of my garage, so I could heat and work on my vehicles this winter. The Jeep is in there now but I have ball joints that need replaced on two other vehicles

    Fixed my "oh $h!t" idiot moment and got the little black plastic cap out of my front diff and changed the oil in the rear diff.

    New engine oil and filter.

    Got a few extra keys made.

    Gathered up a few more trail tools and fix it stuff to toss in the Jeep.

    2 leaks down, about 1 million more to go

    Blower maybe, NOS no, turbo... not without a good rebuild and some valve guide seals.

    I’m years from having a jeep that’ll move on its own so this’ll never happen. I like the thought of boost but a strong NA engine is more impressive to me.

    My aftermarket fender saga continues.
    If you recall, I purchased two new front fenders from Quadratec. When they arrived not only was the build quality very poor but they were damaged. I sent those back and had Qudratech send out two new replacements. The replacements arrived yesterday and they were just as damaged as the first pair. One of the replacements was usable but would still require some metal work and bondo whereas the other was a mess, completely unusable. I’ve sent the replacements back and ordered two new fenders from Discount Body Parts. They have a different manufacturers part number than the Crown and Omix fenders so we’ll find out soon if they are indeed different or the same poor quality parts.
    I also located a pair of original fenders at a Jeep salvage yard in Ohio. The seller told me they are rusty but not rotted. they want $500.00 per fender and $150.00 shipping.

    Second set:
