I get a little rub from the plastic guard in the front but only when I have the wheel completely turned to the left or right. Only hear it when I'm backing out of driveway. It's a real easy fix by just trimming the piece on each side. But haven't got around to it yet.

I have the 17" Pintlers.

Installed Smitybuilt GEAR system on the rear gate.
Also installed the Best Top lock box under the drivers seat. Sucker is solid. Only $60 as well.

Have both of those Still waiting on the one for the passenger seat. Email said it would ship in march...haven't seen it yet. After a couple of months, I ditched the bags my tailgate cover came with for better ones.

Interesting how it makes the front wheel and tire look bigger.

Yup - the wheel is not attached, just sitting there propped up on some sticks. And now I want larger tires!

I got my Daystar hood latches on this weekend - awesomely easy & useful.

Also ordered my MORE dual battery tray, that's where we decided the twin ARB compressor is going.

Just mounting the compressor in one half of the tray. We're gonna have to do some welding & modifications to the tray, but it shouldn't be a big deal.

Cushioned the landing for a tree branch.

I had a tree split in half a couple of years ago and fall on my new, to me, Pathfider. Caused several thousand dollars in damage. Then, just a couple moth ago, another tree beach fell on it. Caused about 2k in damage. I've been very diligent about parking AWAY from any trees, especially since I got the new Jeep. If course there was no place to park last night except under a tree. FML

Didn't appear to do much, if any, damage. I'll need to give it a good look once I get all the snow and ice cleaned off. Probably just scratches if anything at all. Fingers crossed.

Oh yeah, I also pulled a buddy up a hill in his Acura TSX that got stuck. He says, "I couldn't even get up the hill, but your Jeep not only pulled itself up - but my car too!". Win!

Just ordered my rear bumper with tire carrier from Chris at jeepaddons.com. Got the paramount version of the smittybilt XRC, it's the exact same bumper, made by the same company, for under $500 to the door. Saved myself $400 bucks by not having XRC stamped on the side.

Saturday....
Got some rock lights and Angel eyes installed.
Bling baby



The angel eyes are easier to see in the daylight than seen in this pic. They are quite bright, actually.

I talked to the mechanic working on my Jeep.

Torque converter is "swollen" and can't be easily removed and has to go to a tranny shop now. I think I'm becoming depressed....3 days and haven't climbed in or worked on my Jeep.
