Nothing yet. I'm fixing the gray one up and I'm driving it now. I have a couple plans for it though...

The red one is still a project that includes a 6.0 but it's on the back burner till the gray one is finished. Hopefully by the end of this year it will be done though.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I realized that I have so much to do to my Jeep and no money to do it.
Motor Mounts
Transmission Mount
Tune Up
TPS
IAC
Figure out what the vibration from the front end is....(probably carrier/pinion bearing or could be exhaust hitting)
New Shocks
Why I have a lack of power
....So annoying!

I plan on a decent sound system also, so I thought this would be added insurance against the rattling that comes from low bass and with a 20+ year old truck, I know there would be rattling.
So what, you just pull the carpet up and lay down the dynamat and lay the carpet back over it? I really need to do my jeep...how much does that stuff run to do the inside of the front?

I thought it was just mine. The truck is crazy loud. Glad to know the dynomat makes a difference.

Actually, I had a couple rust holes in the floor that Ed and myself patched up, thanks Ed, so the entire interior is out of it. The carpet is in sad shape so I ordered a new kit, thanks to Matt, rredalty, and that will be going in it soon. I bought one box of the Dynamat extreme, I think it's like 36 sq ft or so and just about covered the entire Jeep less the doors. I'm not sure what I'm gonna do about my doors yet so I didn't cover them.

Huge difference!!! There are other products out there but I can say the Dynamat stuff works.
