I mounted a fire extinguisher I had lying around the garage from an old Kenworth rig we had.



I only spent $1.30 at lowes for a pipe clamp to mount the plastic wall mount to the roll cage.

I really have no good excuse for not having a fire extinguisher in my Jeep.

On a side note, going to Home Depot and Harbor Freight on Black Friday is a bad idea if you are trying to save money for Christmas....I almost bought everything I wanted for Christmas this morning.

I installed new front and rear bumper with the swing away carrier. I have not decided if I am going to add a third brake light.

Removed the old (too tall) body lift from the PO and put in a proper 1" lift.

At the half way point, she had a bit of a lean.

Looks good. If you really want to do the third brake light thing do the 1" button lights in the lug holes

It is a MangumPowers kit. Portland speed industries in Oregon did the tuning. The attached dyno sheet is from Tuesday showing my original stock run Vs the supercharged run. I have experimented with various power levels, this one seems to be more than enough. Good drivability and plenty of power when you get on it at 10 psi of boost.

Used the winch to pull a termite invested dead tree out. Then hooked it up and dragged it to the front of the house.

Well not my TJ today, but my daughters TJ. Helped her pull her front axles and pop in two new Spicer U-Joints. Then she changed the front diff. fluid, while I changed the rear. We also installed a pair of Ten Factory axle tube seals, and new front brake pads. Nice greasy, grimey father-daughter TJ day!

Rebuilt my double cardan joint on my rear driveshaft. Hadn't kept it greased well enough and wore out the bell joint. It was noisy like a grinding bearing until fixed. Now it's smooth and quite. Finally...

Flushed out my power steering fluid....man did it need it fluid was brown not red like it is supposed to be. So I went and got a bottle of Royal purple ATF...now everything is done with Royal purple. Only have to do the brake fluid and then everything is finished. Also rotated the tires and checked the brake pads.

Modified my shifter drop that came with the skyjacker lift, it was popping out of 4hi very easily. Might have to look into a Novak shifter cable. Bought a can of seafoam lets see how that goes. Doing 1/3 in gas, 1/3 in oil, 1/3 in brake booster hose. Then oil change next weekend. Smoke 'em if you got 'em lmao.

Went to the pick n pull and got some V8 Grand Cherokee front springs, sits pretty good with a 2 inch BB spacer lift in the rear. Great mod for the price!
