How many times have we all gotten into a project and did something, well... not so smart?
Today for example I was removing body bolts in order to install some rock sliders. The bolt was spinning but it was stuck in the body cushion so I (with out a lot of thought) grabbed the captured washer and pulled down.
This caused the impact I was using to push into the palm of my hand, and push the switch into the "tighten direction". Those bolt can make a lot of "squeeze" in a hurry when using an impact at 120 psi!
So there I am- effectively screwed to my JK with 3 of my fingers smashed against the body mount. I am now part of the Jeep. After the bright lights went away, I switched directions and separated myself from the jeep and then finished the install after some doctoring.
While admiring the rocksliders I realized how deep this "Jeep thing" really is- It was totally worth it
I hope I live through the bumper install to come...
