Last day off for the next 10, so I decided to wash the Jeep, then head to a state park along Lake Winnebago.

Never hurts to get the Jeep a little good mojo:

I hadn't washed it in awhile...nice to see it clean as a mirror, for once:

Everything was going fine till I got about a mile from the lake. Uh-oh, a hatch was going on. There goes the neighborhood.

Man, these critters were everywhere! Not only all over my Jeep, but inside it, and all over me, too. Luckily I'm used to it...something's always hatching up here. But the buzzing was so loud it sounded like there was an electrical plant in the woods.

Installed Hellfire 6000 headlights (AMAZING!) and ACE Rails (great quality). I bought a $40, 6" table grinder at Lowes for the install. It took me about an hour and a half, but had no assistance.

The ACE boxes came in handy for their install...useful information that I picked up from this forum. "Thank you" to whoever you are!

Just put on the stubby off road antenna. It's perfect if you have windshield mounted KC's. The stock antenna bangs into the lights.

Installed kicker speakers in the sound bar and stuffed with poly fill.. While doing so dropped the speaker on my face. Nose is a little banged up. Made my hangover worse

I think they mean when it flexes wildly.

I told my mechanic, "My antenna hits my KCs when it flexes wildly" he told me "Don't flex your antenna wildly like that".

I'll be here all weekend folks. try the fish.
