Finished mounting my tires then threw them on.
Damn, you must work out or have arms like Shaq if you threw them on.
I'd have to grunt and groan and cuss, and then maybe...........

Looks ready to go pretty much anywhere now.

And it begins.
I've decided to have a local shop install it. They are a well known and quality place for the whole state. With my body being hurting pretty bad lately I dont' want to deal with trying to do it. Kinda sad about that...but it will save time though. And just in time to go to Oregon with a friend to help him grab a Dinoot trailer for his TJ.

You’ll do plenty more in the future yourself. It’ll give you a nice start with a shop to help with adjustments in the beginning. Not a bad choice at all.

The pain in my shoulder today tells me my technique may have been flawed…

Yeah once the JT is done it's time to get the TJ back up to good condition before we have another recession.... I recently found on Quadratec that Crown (who usually just makes stock replacements) make adjustable control arms for the TJ - but they use the factory bushing for NVH reduction, which is super awesome!! So gonna be going back to stock bushing style on the TJ, and dropping lift from 4.5 to 2.5". I might have the shop do that one also though, well see.... Driving 70 miles on a mis-aligned TJ could be disastrous. lol

The ground plane project for UHF and VHF continues on. I've done the mount of both the quarter wave antennas. I raised the UHF one a bit higher and gave it its own ground plane. The raised white antenna is the Sirius/GPS antenna. I'm doing the final fitting of everything. So this phase will be done soon. Then running all the antenna wires (3 and possibly 4 if I get a cell phone signal booster) is the next planned step.

In the future there is room to mount a Starlink panel antenna and some solar panels as well.
