i spent the morning cleaning my jeep and touch up painting the big scratches i put in my front bumper after yesterdays adventure.went wheelin with an xj runnin a 7" rubicon express lift/acos front spacers and 35s(im bone stock).we wheeled an old trail with huge cross ditches/ravines.he was draggin his bumpers gettin through so you can imagine how i did.happy to say i made it all under my own power and finally used/needed both lockers.i sure need a lift and bigger tires.lol. funny thing was when we were headin up there was an f350 on 38s and 2 full size blazers on 35" boggers were coming down.they said they turned around because the ditches were way to big.when i was sitting in my jeep the f350's rear bumper was at eye level..hahha.pussies.what an awesome day.

Finished today.. Changed trany fluid and filter, re torqued bands. Cleaned sanded repainted skid plate and frame under skid plate. There is a leak between the tranny and TC. But it will have to wait til spring.

Thanks. But really have you looked at that engine bay ?! It looks like it just left the factory. Everything's shiny and clean

Pressure washer

Are you guys really talking about pressure washing your engines and engine bays??? What about the sensors? I'm leery of even using a hose to clean mine for fear I'll ruin a sensor or switch.

No, just too many vehicles. I purchased this from my older brother and fixed it up for my kids to drive but they (18 year-old son & 20 year-old daughter) had no interest. I would have killed to have something this much fun to drive at their age! So, time to get something new for the wife to drive and pass her car along to our son.

Got my bank 2 02 sensor in today. Now I need to order the bearings for my rear axle so I can replace them this weekend.

at work i got my KC 100w 6" driving lights put on and wired up. then after work i tried to get to the creek bed behind my work and dropped into a hole and got stuck and i broke my winch cable getting it out bc the winch and mounting plate dont match so i had to have my mom bring me my dodge to get it out. but good thing is i now have a reason to buy a nice 8,000lbs smittyblit winch
