Looks good! Mines overdue for the same treatment.

Good deal Tim! I don't mean to ruffle folks feathers even though I seem to be pretty good at it these days.

Steve, glad that the floor cage is coming together! Looks good! There is no room for hands under those bars when its time to mount things down I bet; I know that mine were tight in my TJ when I had my old style mounts in there, and even my new ones are a snug fit for sure.

Man, clean paint on parts? Whats that all about? Looks really good! My whole rig needs a good once over with a wire wheel and rattle can.

Lets see, for "My Jeep Lately"...
Picked up a replacement Rod end for a busted suspension link end.





Bought new winch rope for my 9.5ti and found that the drum is rust scaled badly so a new one of those is on the way.




Started on a new spare front driveshaft that is a little straighter and stronger than my last spare that I destroyed in Harlan and then again at Tinsley.



And, started cleaning up my trailer finally. Getting a blast, paint, and new deck and lights.

QA1 "Rock End"
http://www.qa1.net/rod-ends-and-rela...ring-rock-ends

And yea, that stuff is now on the back of the International Loadstar, and my trella is "deck-less and tail-less" at the moment. Hoping to sling a dove on it this weekend and then send it off for blast and prep.. then a new deck and lights the following weekend.

And those ends actually don't look like a bad deal. You're pretty brutal sometimes though. I wonder how that little clip is going to hold up to your abuse. Good prices though. Saving for later possible use.

Thanks! It was nice and easy before the center console and the stock seatbelt stuff went back in. With that stuff back in the equation the rear bolts are not fun. Im actually sore as **** today from the contortionist positions I got my self in while trying to get my arms under the seat from the back to tighten them down. I cant wait to wheel with them though, its such a huge difference over stock seats.

Would you be opposed to hole sawing a couple of access holes under the brackets so you could just use a socket and extension? You could plug them back up afterwards with the knock out plugs used for electrical panels.

The brackets are accesible, its just that with the step up thats behind the seat it makes it difficult to get under the seat from the back and you cant reach from the front, its doable just takes some time to get your wrenches positioned right and line up the seat/bracket holes. Im thinking now that everything will be settled in to place the second time around should line up better. Are you talking about hole sawing the floor? Yes, I would be opposed to that.
