Almost wrecked her. Not really. But I was scared as heck. Took the top and doors of this morn. So I rode to school and our comedy improv practice naked. 2 cute friends of mine really wanted to drive her. I let them. Worst idea ever. BUT!!! Now they both want Jeeps.

There's a lesson in that somewhere
Don't let friends drive your rig unless you want to be scared out of your pants

I know... I should have learned by now. Last time I let someone drive her, we almost ran into a brick wall.

Installed a 4" Skyjacker lift. 5-6 hours my ass! Started at 7am...YESTERDAY...worked till 8pm. Started again at 8am today and finished at 7pm. Had to call a friend over with his torch at one point to heat up a few bolts that weren't going to move without heat. Since he was here, I persuaded him to assist me (with a couple hundo$ since he has access to an auto shop and lift). Towed it to his shop, finished the lift, then mounted my new 33" Mickey T's. Tomorrow she'll be getting her alignment and a much needed steering stabilizer on Friday or Saturday.

Haha. Let my girlfriend drive offroad. I can confidently say shes beyond cute. She plowed right into a tree. Pretty lucky that tree was there actually. On the other side was steep downhill that the snow made treacherous

I have 2 sets of headlights and I was wondering if there is a way to mount them on the bumper by using another set of housing or something

Finally wired up my black magics on the windshield mounts that have been on for a month. I'm liking the look a lot.

Oil Change, Engine Flush in the morning. Upgraded the stereo speakers this afternoon. Installed Alpine SPR60's in the sound bar & SPS406's in the dash. A HUGE improvement.

Next up is a new head unit & amp.

Making progress, but going cash poor.

Recommend an alpine, or pioneer deck (you seem to have good taste) and check out the alpine power pack amp, it's small and can be tucked behind the dash, plus it's plenty powerful to run the stock sized speakers.

Became Intimately Fimiliar with the front of my engine block.
Replaced Water pump, removed T'stat housing, cleaned thoroughly and replaced T'stat. Replaced lower radiator hose. RTV'd everything very miticulously, put everything back together and decided to be a jackass and add coolant (end of the day mistake). Sprung a leak in my uncured RTV, so now I get to tear it all apart and do it again tomorrow.
At least this time it'll go quicker.

PS. that clutch fan removal was a PITA.

Changed the old hood straps and put on new poly urethane ones. Holds it down good. Changed out the chrome headlight rings for new black ones. I dont care for chrome. Only had my TJ for 5 days and already ordering parts and accessories every chance I get.
