Installed my SRC matching rear bumper and Optima red top battery. Also put wire protector over my winch wiring and hooked it up different. I like the way it's routed better now...

Do you ever get hassled up there fort the license plate being held on with zip ties or is that a Virginia Beach thing?

Gotta be a Virginia beach thing. I rode for about 3 weeks with NO license plate on the front, and traveled throughout the entire state and didn't have a problem. Finally decided to put it on, and don't want to bolt it. I was hanging with my buddy who is local police here in Henrico, and he didn't have a problem with the plate being on with zip ties. As long as its visible and able to be read easily, no one bothers you around here.

Gave my Jeep a good clean, inside & out. Then changed my front suspension ball joints on the RH side. Still got to do the left side.

I hope to drive mine for the first time in a few months. I left it with my sister in Texas, and flew back to San Diego to sell the house and move home after retiring from the navy. She's been in the shop since last week having the AC repaired. I didn't need it in San Diego, but I absolutely will need it here in Texas! Can't wait to clean her up and drive her around.

Afterwards I heard some officer speak of some missing girl in the mountains and that they were having trouble traversing the terrain. I told them I would help - as my house was on the other side and it would be quicker to go through than around the mountains. As I drove through I spotted something on the ground by a nearby tree and got out to inspect. As I moved the hood back I realized it was the missing girl. She startled awake and I extended my hand to help her up. Her eyes lit up when she saw the Jeep and she jumped in the front seat.

After driving her home, I made my way back to my house - my day finally over. As the sun faded behind the tall trees I walked past my Jeep to my door. But something was missing... ...I left the gas cap on top of the pump. But alas, that is another story for another day...
haha that would be awesome

Depends on what you mean by not working. Is the fan nor blowing, or is it blowing hot air?
