She seemed upset by it.
Hopefully
  1. That driver is okay
  2. She helps repair/pay for the damage
  3. She learns from this to become a better spotter.
Everyone makes mistakes, driver and spotter alike. Even the most experienced drivers and spotters were at one point noobs doing it for the first time.

Primed and painted my front and rear drive shafts. Also did a little touch up of some of the axles and control arms that had a little bit of surface rust on them. Trying to winterize the jeep.

I suspect you'll see them the end of the month.

I ordered mine during their August hiatus, so technically that order wasn't processed until sometime after 8/22 (I think).

That order was shipped the day after Labor Day, had them by the ensuing weekend.

Since I also screwed up putting mono US flags on my cowls, I ordered another set this past Monday. Given their 10-14 day turnaround (per their website), I suspect it will be the first week of October.

Installed the Coverking seat covers. I am not overly impressed. The straps and buckles are undersized. One popped undone while I was tightening it. Fortunately it didn't break. Fitment was a bit spotty too. Overall not bad and they look pretty good, but I wish I had paid the extra and gone with Trek.

I did a partial debadging today and took off the X sticker on the side. I'm sure my wife will love that her hair dryer was an accomplice to the "money pit" of my Jeep as she called it this morning.

The paint fade from the sticker is pretty noticeable to me. I left the wrangler unlimited though. Can't decide if that's going to stay, or come off after I get the next sticker on. I was thinking of using it to help level out my decal below.



The sticker below is what I'm replacing it with. My buddy is a member at JK forum and took extra decals he got from them and gave them to me. He cut the "forum" part off. I'm going to do the same thing.



Trans again???

you can run 35's with no lift and minimal rubbing if you cut your pinch seams and remove the air damn I ran that way for a couple of weeks before I put my lift in. its tight (very tight) but doable. this set up works if you don't plan on going offroad. my friend is running 35's no lift and chopped his flares and can do mild (very mild) offroading I'm talking fire trails and like green/blue obstacles. for questions on size and offset there is a thread that tells you everything you need. I run a 3.5 (I think) offset/backspacing and have no rubbing issues.

no lift 35's

I got tired of my headlight bezels not sticking so I got a local shop to paint the bezel area black.

Installed my new teraflex hinged carrier. That boy is a tough one,I can see after taking off the originals why they could cause issues with heavier tires. Now I have to find either some black bolts or groments to plug 3 threaded holes on the hinge hinge side. I also have to paint the bolt heads that hold my 3rd brake light inside the spare,don't know why but the one's sent are silver.

Installed Drake off road black billet shifter knob and 4x4 knob. Word to the wise, 4x4 knob DOES not pull off with extra force. There's a clip inside that has to come off. Was a biot@" to get off.

Cool, do they work well? That would have been a very clean self install, I was impressed!
