Bored, What should I do?

I figured this would be an interesting thread. Kind of like a build my jeep thread.

What I do with my Jeep: I literally drive it 50 miles a week. I have a work truck so i don't really drive my personal vehicle often. I like to go offroading once in awhile, nothing too extreme.

Heres an interesting detail. I come from a mustang that i took care of religiously, and I care very much about the detailing aspect of owning a car. I like getting my jeep dirty, but I don't like it to be dirty. Its like an OCD thing. After I get off the trail, i'm washing it all away immediately.

I would like to go through the woods, but I don't want to scratch my paint. Lol.


Heres what I have so far:
Teraflex Leveling Kit
15" MB72's and 33" Duratracs
Ace Rails
KC HiLites Mounted on Windshield
Quadratec Liners


Heres what is being installed within the next month:
AEV 2.5" Lift
AEV Geometry Brackets
Either LOD Mid Width Bumper or Rugged Ridge XHD Bumper w/ Stubby Ends and winch. Probably a Rugged Ridge or Ergo Winch.


Do I really need a winch? I'm not sure. For someone who goes offroading once a month, and not that heavy, not sure.

I am excited to go camping, and take the jeep on the beach and shit.

Also I have a German Shepherd Puppy.

Anyone have any ideas on something to do? I'm bored. Anything interesting to do?



Cliffnotes: Clean freak, who goes offroad about once a month or so. Has a puppy. Likes adventure.

Looks better dirty! It's easier to keep it that way than the show room shine!

I too went from DD to being home based (huge gas savings, and insurance now that it's a leisure vehicle) and I'm getting that way myself. It sits there begging me to take it somewhere.

Interesting to do? You said it yourself; go scratch your paint!!! It gets easier to do after the first time.

No way! My first mistake was buying a brand new jeep. I should of bought a TJ and built it up, and either kept my mustang or bought a nice car to take care of. Lol oh well.

It's a badge of honor. One of the guys down at the 4WD parts store commented about the scratches on mine. He seemed a bit surprised. I'm guessing from the typical look of their parking lot that he sees lots of mall crawlers, and perhaps he figured mine was one; mine ain't one of those. He then invited me to a customer-appreciation crawl he does annually. He said only the rigs that are "users" get invited.
