Traded a Winchester rifle for a four wheel alignment, tune up, oil change, spare tire and rim for trailer.

Pick it up this afternoon.

I didn't realize how worn out my stock steering was. The Currectlync really made a difference in the way it drives.

I also pulled the seat covers and put them in the wash. Hooked up CB, installed Mag Light and fire extinguisher.

Currie steering is my next upgrade. I'm tired of my stock steering.

I won a $100 gift certificate to Warrior Products at a local Jeep event. I bought some tub doors.

It didn't happen overnight. I've had it almost four years and two trips to Moab (another in a couple months).

Thanks.

Lots of changes coming up after this summer. When I put it away this fall I will be selling the rims, tires and axles.

40's and Ton's will be going on. Followed later by a motor, tranny and transfercase swap.

Had a great trip to Moab. We ran Potsh Rd, Schafer Switchbacks, Long Canyon, Seven Mile Rim, Hells Revenge x2, Fins and Things and Kane Creek

Junior did a fine job and only had trouble with one obstacle on Seven Mile Rim. My front bumper got a workout hammering on the rocks.

I got a little heavy with the skinny pedal on my first run on Hells and nearly tore of my rear bumper.

My tailpipe and fuel tank skid took a beating as well.

My t-case chain has stretched and needs to be replaced.

I have a lower control arm bushing on the frame end that is completely shot as well.

After the Jeep cruise on Sunday Junior will be going under the knife for repairs.

We are kicking it around. Leave the Jeep the way it is and buy a Razor.

Won't happen until after we move.

My neighbor gets them for free, he keeps one for awhile and then switches it out so he can get familiar with what he sales.

When are you planning on moving?

Looked like JT's bronco did pretty good too.

We are putting our house on the market next week after we get done cleaning it up.
We will be moving 35 miles West to the lake where the girls go to school.

JT's Bronco did far better than I thought it would.

For the record Kane Creek is not for the faint of heart. That trail tests everything your vehicle can do and you mentally.

Good luck with the sale and move.

You need to visit NC again.
