  • what are your "to-do" lists for you jeep?

    my "must do" list:
    1) fix leak in power-steering system - thinking the pump is shot
    2) replace all 4 shocks and the steering stablizer
    3) replace brakes all around (4 new rotors and 8 new pads)
    4) new bump-stops and bushings for the suspension
    5) new contol arms (at least new lowers all around and front uppers... but might as well replace the rear uppers while i'm at it)
    6) new trac-bars (see above - might as well do it while i'm under there)
    7) new exahust system from the manifolds back

    my "would like to do" list:
    1) roof rack with light and spare tire mounts
    2) a cd player (stuck with a non-working factory cassette right now)
    3) new speakers (3 blown speakers in the infinity system)
    4) rear cargo drawer/rack/orginizer of some sort
    5) pull off all exterior trim and get it rino-lined along with the bumper thumper
    6) new CB system

    i'm sure i am leaving some stuff out... lol... but the "just empty every pocket" mantra is alive and well when it comes to my jeep.

    what is/are everyone else's lists for the spring/summer?
