Monday I added 2, 6" driving lights to my new bumper light bar. Tuesday I got them wired up and functional.

Also, Monday my RC 3.25" lift showed up.........so Last night I laid it out on the garage floor for the TJ to see...the operation starts Friday after work........

Took a half day at work in order to get to the tire shop....

Just need to decide if I'm going to tackle the lift, or pay someone to do it who has a little more experience.

...EXCITED!

You can handle it! Make sure ya have some thin to do some cuttin ie: frame side leaf spring bolts and possibly the pitman arm.. If a puller dont do the job.. Like a grinder/ cut of tool.. And impact air tools.. If not, shop it.. May cost a bit but no headaches! I did mine in the shop i work at so i had a lik help lemme know if ya run into probs. Oh and i have those tires too, smaller but do awsome!! Wet stoppin is a lil edgy tho..

Washed her just in time for some rain. Cleaned out the engine compartment and drove her in the rain--fun-fun!

Played in the mud a little bit. I can't say enough good things about those Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's.

Turned out it was pretty sticky stuff. Took me about $20 in quarters just to get the bulk of it off. There were some ladies in the driveway a couple townhouses down giving my Jeep a disgusted look, like it was an eyesore for the neighborhood. So I let it sit in the driveway for a little extra time before I went in search of a car wash.



Also took the top off for a few hours, since it was a pretty decent day out. Probably not many more of those left this year.

Took off the mud tires/wheels off the wife's TJ and put on some new tiny 215 75R 15 winter tires on the old stock steel rims...getting ready for the snow season. Even with just the 2" spacer lift, the little steel rims and 215's look tiny...lol.

Left Tuesday afternoon and took a 4 day, 1600 mile road trip through CO, NM, TX, OK, KS and back to CO. She did great! I love a good road trip!

Also got some swag for my birthday: grab handles, mag light holder, fire extinguisher & holder, snatch block, HID off road lights, and safari top. Glad I filled out my wish list on 4WheelParts.com. I got everything but the G2 Dana44's. Oh well... that's why they call it a wish list!
