That looks awesome. You should put one of my camo pool ball shifters in there. Should fit right in with all that camo.

Left it outside in a tornado with only a bikini top to protect it from the elements, because apparently moms car and dads corvette can't be outside in a tornado.... At any rate this morning I pulled out the floor mats (don't have any drain plugs) and let about 8 inches of water drain out then proceeded to drive it to school while it is 45 outside.

You will need appropriate bumpstops to prevent coil damage if doing much wheeling, or just in general to be safe

Next time take it over to St Francis and park in their covered garage (or any free covered parking...) Easy and reasonably secure.

I have done that a few times with my last car but we only do that if hail is a serious threat. Little rain ain't no thing! I just threw a trash bag over the steering wheel to protect the column. Thanks for the advice though, I never thought about st. Francis we went to promenade mall but a hospital would be quite a bit safer I would imagine.

Your jeep looks sick man. What tires and wheels are those I have a white tj and am wanting to get new wheels. And what is that hood cover?

Got a welder handy? if you do go to a fence company and get a section of 3" SS40 and weld brackets on it, prime it with white Gliddon outdoor primer and paint it with what ever color of paint you want, oh and remember to weld on caps at both ends

Took it to a jeep mechanic that's a buddy of my dads friend. Te transfer case chain has been slipping really bad and cause me to get stuck a few times lately. He said it should be done by Saturday morning if nothing else comes up!

Changed tranny fluid, oil and filter, spark plugs, and rotated the tires after I sprayed off the mud from the other weekend.

Cut off the stock cat back system and installed a glasspack and made it dump right before the rear axle.

Got the last 2 chrysler lugnuts off. Even after PB blaster'ing for days, The stupid things round right down easier than my wife does when she's telling me how much her latest purchase was.
Ended up taking a 3/4 hole saw centered on the stem, and going right through.
Got the wheel off, pounded out the lug stud's, reset new ones in.
Wheel's still good, quick clean up, touched up the black farm implement paint, and remounted.



after pic looks like the before pic. just with all 5 Lugnuts this time (1 was sheared off from prior abuse) Didn't take a specific pic, but here's what it looks like
