Installed the rear speaker replacements to match the infinity fronts, ran wiring for subwoofer and rear camera. I installed a new head unit with bluetooth and touch screen and sorted out all the programming and testing.
 






Got it out to do a little exploring.

Changed out that amazingly hard to get at O2 sensor on the drivers side.
The threaded sensor.....easy ! That damn wire harness.....that took some stretching. lol
 






I finally got around to removing the rusted remains of the fog light brackets after removing the bumper. Fabricated new brackets for driving lights and a light bar install behind the bumper. I still need to wire the light bare and tidy up the wiring, but that is another day.
 






Replaced front driver's brake hose. All 3 hoses are now new and the whole system is thoroughly bled. Matched with fixing the RABS I did the other day, I feel a lot safer with the winter months slowly creeping up.
 






Wash, light wax, vacuum and Rain-X!
 












Dropped the Topper at the paint shop for a color change to match the Sport Trac silver.
 












I bought a set of used 35s already on almost new rims for 150$ i f..in love cityits and craigslist

2.5 is really pushing it without a radius arm drop or longer arms
 






Finished the wiring for the new fog lights and light bar.
Investigated a leak under the front corner, found a leaking shock absorber.
 






Changed Transmission cooling line wich just started leaking 10$ hose anf clamp :) also did my wifes rear drums on her sunfire 110$ total
 






Installed Bosch Icon windshield wipers all the way around. Used 18" on the front and 15 on the rear glass. Also Rain-X'd the windshield and back glass. Never used the stuff before but I figured I'd give it a try.

I replaced the abs sensor on the rear axle, although it did not solve my abs issue.
I removed and replaced my malfunctioning horns.
