in the past week we installed the 4 new zone shocks, 1.75 in bb, broke all 4 rear shock bolts so those were replaced, swapped out the original mirrors for new ones that have the convex and concave sections, and realized we need new sway bars so we'll be ordering a set of quick disconnects to replace the parts that are shot. will try to get some pics tomorrow.

Drove it from Baltimore to the beach in Delaware at Fenwick Island. Then put the "needed" recovery items in to drive on the beach at Assateague National Seashore. Heading there later today (Sunday).

If the hill is steep enough the jeep will still roll. The compression will leak out of the cylinder slowly and let it roll slightly

Finished tune up with plugs and wires, broke one installing.. then had to go pick up another. Sales lady said good thing you came when you did, this is the last one we have in stock. I was a tad nervous putting those last two plugs in, lol. Should have been ok though, ones I took out was several different brands.. Runs alot smoother now. Also checked radiator fluid to get ready for winter. Good to go! Check engine light was on showing I think it was code 21, so one day this week I will be replacing the upper o2 sensor and hopefully, that will take care of the occasional runs like crap mode, it goes into.

Did a bit of wheeling last night, love the low gears on the trail jeep, came down a pretty steep incline through the woods with turns, just creeped along like a baby all the down.
