Not to but in: remembered the close to million men & women who gave their lives so we could be free. Remembered the friends I served with that watched my back & went before me so that I could continue t0 live free. Remembered all the men & women still serving, putting themselves in harms way & keeping us out of it.

This is not my Jeep in the pic, but was leading the parade & a really great restore.

You got it.

Be moving to a new house/base, the top is easier to transport on the jeep. Thats why it had to go back on.

Nice!

I took off the hard top off and installed the new spiderweb shade, then removed my steering stabilizer and repainted it to match my coils.

Changed out my transfer case fluid, and attempted to take off my steering stabilizer, after several hours of drilling and hammering I have decide to get a pitman puller and give that a go next weekend .

I fought my stabilizer as well and here is how i got it out.
Shoot it with some PB blaster or LW PO
Take a BFH and hit it on the knuckle 3-4 times to jar it lose.

One hit on the bottom of the tapered bolt shot it up.
My Jeep sat for almost two years and was really rusty.

A pickle fork would work wonders.

*Credit Jerry for the smacks to the knuckle strategy.

Used a dog collar as a replacement door strap. Drove it to work with the half windows out. May take the top off to go back to work after lunch.
