Installed my Daystar hood latches. A great 20 minutes of bonding with the Jeep.

Lift Day....

I installed my Tera Flex 2.5" Coil lift along with Fox 2.0 shocks at the corners. The install overall went smoothly, and the outcome looks fantastic. It took me and my father just about 5 hours to complete and was great bonding time. I have a set of 35's coming for it in the near future along with some windshield mounted lights.

Today I wished I had my Jeep to drive. Dropped her off at the dealer yesterday for a cylinder misfire. Waiting for a new head to come in to get it replaced. Stuck in a loaner.

Now I'm coming up with ideas for a welcome home gift for her. I'll use any excuse to go after the next mod

In case anyone wonders, that's a silver 12 Altitude I got about two weeks ago, 313 miles so far. I kept the gutter guard as is, didn't plaz-dip it. When I get her out in broad daylight, I'll see if the chrome look is too jiggy.

It saved them money and increased their bottom line.

Unrelated to the thread but I think I just noticed something...Were your (snochick and Paveslave) profile pictures taken at the same time from different angles?

Lol yea. It was a pretty place up at chimney rock so I took a lot of pics up there. Was a fun trip. Even if I did almost roll mine down a mountain when the trail fell out.

I didn't document it. Probably just before 10K, although the slight tick probably started earlier. The CEL went on around 12,500 miles.
