What thing?  The cupholder?  They are at Harbor Freight in multiple colors.  I just moved the magnets from the back to the bottom.

Sorry to hear that Frank.
What skid do you have so I don't have the same issue if I buy one in the future?

I have a Warn skid plate I got for free.  It's not as thick as I would like and I bent/warped it a few times pretty bad.  I've added a piece of 1/4"x2" angle iron welded down each side for more structure and it pretty much has prevented anymore bending.

Gave the LJ some love today by installing a new JVC double din stereo with CarPlay and a backup camera input. I then took a BrandMotion JK camera and adapted it to the LJ for a nice clean factory look on the spare tire mount. Very pleased with how it turned out.

Very cool. Looks nice.

Do you think you would be able to run a camera to the front and have something similar to the gladiators?

Actually you can, the radio I got has a front camera input. Hadn’t thought about adding that, but I do have on on my Gladiator, so maybe I should so the LJ doesn’t feel left out.

Sounds like a pretty nice unit. What is the model number?

It’s a KW-M650BT. I got it cheaper because it has a 6.2” screen instead of 6.8 and only has CarPlay. If you want/need a slightly bigger screen or Android Auto you can step up tot he 750 for slightly more.

100K on my kids JK.  Changed the plugs, wires and coil.   Not sure how it was even running with the plugs that were in it from PO.

Plugs and an oil change on the TJ. No clue when the plugs were done last but man number 6 was rough.
The only thing about a Yj that's reliable is its mechanic.

Joey to Mike- That's more like it! Never done.....just outta money at the moment.

Went to Stafford and swapped some parts.  Picked up some new/used dash lights for the Scrambler.

Put the Spicer Dana 44 diff cover on the back of the JL. Fun fact, they don't make lube lockers for the JL Dana 44 (yet, the bolt pattern is different than on the JK) but the JL actually comes with them from factory. Still ended up using RTV instead, but good to know if y'all want to swap covers at some point (...Donnie).
