Took it out to visit my parents, was heavy on the throttle most of the time. My boy still has a huge smile on his face! Today I am thankful for family, friends and forced induction, lol. Happy thanksgiving to all my Jeep friends.

Went mall crawling. I think it should still be considered legit since I had to park INSIDE a tree.

hey guys so this might sound foolish but im trying to find a place to put my skies on to carry them without drilling holes in my hardtop and spending a huge amount for carriers. so i was wondering if anyone has ever put their skies on the rear bumper using some sort of clamp? i have a stock rear bumper on my tj, any ideas? and any ideas on how to make a cheap set of tube doors or half doors?

Successfully, ripped out the driver's side front bumper end cap after 2 and half hours to get a rock out and bang out a dent in the front bumper under it. Then got yelled at for doing so and bought a replacement on mom's orders even though I didn't really want to.

Hahahahhaha my dad yelled at me for taking my jugs off the back. He gets mad whenever I change anything... Somehow I always convince him to let me. Except take off the doors -_- cant do that...

I've learned to just do it and hope he never notices.

Haha my parents hate when I do anything on the jeep, but they've learned that its better to let me spend my hard earned cash on a "hobby" than on alcohol and drugs like a lot of the other 20+ year olds.

Ya, Yesterday I removed the upper shift boot (with out destroying it) because it was coming off and was annoying me and was the culprit to why I think it wouldn't go in reverse early in the morning. and I haven't told anybody about that yet.

Now there's a great concept! JEEP the new D.A.R.E. Maybe my Chief would consider canning the DARE program, and letting me start a JEEP Mod/offroad program at the high school! Snag some federal funds to mod a bunch of Jeeps! LOL!

Hahahahahhahaha. You guys are on the dot.

Every cent goes into my baby.

Better to ask for forgiveness (if you get caught) than to ask for permission

Now that would be a great program! I can just see myself going into high schools to talk about how a lift kit will get you higher than drugs haha.

If your spare is mounted on the rear u can get the Smittybilt I rack that mounts on the outside of ur spare. u can mount just about anything to it. Here is the link Smittybilt Part 2740 - I-Rack Intelligent Rack

I rotated my tires, flushed my power steering fluid out and worked on the other half of my iron gate for the side of my house.
