Talking

cleaned my air filter with a cleaning kit.
then i pulled off the rear bumper (had to drill out the torx bolts in the plastic ends - they were all stripped out and rusted as heck. those black plastic things are NOT going back on) and sanded it down, did some bondo-ing, and primed it. just barely had almost enough primer...ill either get more primer and then paint it, or just paint it depending on how it looks tomorrow.

also, did the font bumper the other day, so i put in two pics of it

Used a heat gun on the faded fenders. Pretty nice results for learning a new trick.

I doubt that my brother will be on here he's not the type to do his own work. But if he has any problems I'm sure he'll ask me

Just something small, but helpful... I tied some paracord on my soft top zippers for easy grip.. Works nice!

Nice flex! What LA kit did you go with? I was thinking Teraflex for me in the future. IDK...

Rotated my tires and re-torqued all the bolts from my RC 2.5" lift install last weekend!

Also had one wheel stud replaced due to a cross-threaded lug nut from the last tire rotation at Discount Tire.

It is just the rear at this time i made it myself. I already had a 6 in lift so i worked around that. Lowers are 2 in 1/4 wall the uppers are 1.5 1/4 wall.
So far nothing hits and seems good. its on the trailer to go to the exhaust shop in the am. I needed to stuff the pass side to check for exhaust clearance. so far so good. I will do the front down the road a bit need to do some work on the cherokee.

Rotated the tires and put on new brake pads. Then heard a rumble from the rear that comes up whenever I start off?
