    Jeep is living the good life with the kids out riding around all day in it. I am glad they took the top and doors off and put the bikini top on for the warm weather time

    LOL ..... the JK is the newest and most reliable in my small fleet it does take turns as DD. Darn birds can build a mud/stick nest pretty quick since I'm next to the woods.

    The box is nice and weather resistant... but anyone with a few minutes and a crow bar will bend the aluminum enough to pop it open?! What did you do to your Jeep today?What did you do to your Jeep today?

    Nice box which is better than any bag or tackle box or tool box. Armed with a crowbar the thief/thieves can get into nearly anything when they have no concern for other peoples property.

    I want an alarm of a woman screaming for help. Where can I get it ?
    Needs to go yonder.

    So I installed my jks 2.5 inch lift today and had a bunch of issues getting the drag link from the pitman arm. Now when I try to tighten the nut it just spins. Do I need a new drag link or am I doing something wrong? What did you do to your Jeep today?-image1654899383.783232.jpg

    Which end is spinning - is it the pitman end, or the wheel end?

    I think what you'll need to do is put some tension on the nut. Either put a pickle fork / lever between the frame and the drag link, or maybe jack up the Jeep so that everything droops a bit.

    use a soft face mallet or block of wood and hammer to drive the tapered pin up into the arm a bit. the friction should keep the tapered pin from rotating. You can also use a fork between them as stated but use caution not to tear the boot!

    Or out a jack under it with a board to apply pressure while tightening

    Thanks for all the input guys. I will try the jack under it and see if I can get it tightened. I appreciate all the input.

    Since I run with a bikini top and half doors all year, I removed the rear seat and made a cargo cover to hide my amp, kicker and other items that I keep back there. Added some D rings and a cargo net to strap things down on top. With the tailgate locked. you cant access the area underneath.

    Thanks. When I first started this little project I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. But I think it turned out better than I had expected.
