I changed out a unit bearing on mine tonight.

The big brown truck also brought me a nice surprise today. My WINCH showed up out of the blue. I have faith in Ebay once again.

Got the winch installed today.

Az, nope I talked to the guy on Ebay and he said he was going on vacation for a week and a half so he pulled all of his Ebay adds. After fighting with my bent mangled stock one today I'll definitely be ordering up one of those as soon as the auctions are back.

Finally replaced the vacuum lines and check valves for the HVAC system. Also tore down and cleaned the control switch on the head unit.

I installed my new front bumper!


I need a swaybar cover and winch plate to deter people from grabbing the airbag "line".







And this one is for Jack... plenty of clearance under there for a steering skid, which is what I'm ordering right now

They're roof rack mounts. I can't get it in the garge with the rack on, so I take it off when not in use.

Thanks Az for the pics. I think that sealed it up for me to grab that when the guy gets back in town. So did everything fit like it was supposed to?

Hey Scout, I wheeled mine.

Yep - nice and snug fit on the frame. I tightened the bolts down as good as I could(with my bad leg and all) and my dad got at them pretty good to... after a week or so I'm gonna see if they need any more tightening.

Went out and got an emergency road side kit, cables and such just incase.

Also picked up some stuff to make my baby shine, a armorAll GiftPack. The entire works of cleaning products from ArmorAll.

Tomorrow im going to give it a good cleaning inside and out if its not raining.

And for everyone who says its supposed to be dirty, the reason for the cleaning is to make it really stand out when it does go and play in the mud.

LOL, sometimes I think the baked on dirt is holding mine together. There is nothing wrong with a clean Jeep I am lazy when it comes to washing it so it almost always has dirt covering it.
