What size?

I bought a package of M6 clips for my valance from e-bay. I'm usually not impressed at the quality but these were so nice I immediately ordered another set upon arrival. Sometimes you get lucky.

M8, I went to the hardware store and found something that will work. I'll probably be replacing the front bumper at some point so not super worried, also found a bolt from the rear that fit, and replaced where I had a clip but no bolt.

Needed space in the garage, so mounted the tires and put them on the jeep. I wish this was driveable as is, I LOVE the look of the stuffed tires, but if it ever went off road, it would be undriveable. even turning wouldn't be so hot on the road. Still waiting on my lift kit.

Google sheets, so I can access it on my phone when I think of something I need to do. 
Like this weekend, I was checking my wiring for the license plate lighting, and so I started it and let it run for a few minutes and my daughter asked me why it was leaking oil. It wasn't leaking oil, one of the fuel injectors exploded and was spraying the whole engine bay in gas.... fortunately no fire. but now fuel injectors and a fuel filter are on the list.

I keep getting asked "when is the jeep going to be done?" by these two, my son keeps trying to "help" (though that has a lot more to him trying to listen to the audio book I am more than actual help), and the youngest cries that she's not involved either, but she terrifies me... she has no fear.

A few more things knocked off the list. and a few more added... Updated the color scheme.
Green = DONE!
Yellow = I have the parts waiting to be worked on, right now this list is limited to the parts I'm going to install when I do the lift, I've done enough that as parts show up I'm literally just going out and putting them on the jeep, and they are going from blue to green.
Blue = parts ordered and shipped, waiting on delivery
white = Other, either I need parts/supplies or is just fluids but it is waiting on a lot of other stuff first
Orange = on hold for now, it won't stop me from hitting the trails, so it is getting pushed till a later date.

Not sure if anybody is still following this, if you are, Do you like me posting my working list? I updated it with some work I've done and some parts I've ordered, I also had to break the list, because it was getting too long to take in one screen shot, and I have a pretty high resolution screen... 

Finished my track bar upgrade, dual steering stabilizers, front sway bar bushings (old ones literally crumbled away as I was taking them out), radio upgrade with backup camera. 
Parts I am waiting on that should be here in the next couple of days are for the cooling/heater system. I have some leaks, trying to track them all down and clear them up. it's cheap and easy enough to replace some hoses and expansion tank bottle, and just know it's all good. 

I spent Monday trying to chase down my seats and lift kit, and the seats are still 2-3 weeks out and the lift kit... they have no idea. Quadratec was kind enough to offer me a discount on another lift kit, and I asked them... "what can you get me in two weeks?" so far it's been two business days with no response. so I am guessing the answer is "nothing". Rubicon Express wasn't able to give me any kind of answer either. so at this point I've slowed way down on my work, because... what does it matter? It's going to be a month+ before I have parts it seems like so doing other things.

Glad you're enjoying it. I just didn't know since it's not a ranger build if anybody was interested. I still got my B4000. She needs some work, bad wheel bearings, ac comes out the defrost vents. but still going strong. Thought I may have to sell it next summer and upgrade to a full sized truck... something that can seat 6, my kids are just getting too big for it. 


My build has hit a stall point. Waiting for my lift kit. My seats should be here today, which is awesome! but without new suspension the rear is sagging so bad, the body is resting on the tires.

Lift kit parts FINALLY showed up, installed the rear springs and shocks (need to do the brake line and torque everything down still, but won't do that till the front is done). 




and I did pick up the trash before I went inside.
