Replaced my passenger side headlight. I woke up this morning and it was out. So I picked a new one up on the way home from work

I guess so. My insurance is less than my sisters 97 chevy lumina. Course she lives in LA, I ask my agent why mine was cheap, and she said "well you drive a tank..."

Really? Because up here jeeps are deemed like instant death mobiles. Because apparently being an suv. And a convertible. And "top heavy" means there dangerous tools of destruction

Have they ever seen a jeep hit a car? Cause you win. And that's what you insurance company wants.

So then the key feel out and was still running ; put the key back in could not turn the motor off , so what should I DO? Glimb in feeling a little nervous I am going to work can't let Kristen run all day .Tried to heat up key up didn't work used pb blaster in ignition bingo ...day turned out good . I LOVE KRISTEN.

I added a set of KC 5 x 7 SS driving lights to the front bumper. Now, I have plenty of light for the night driving. Total lights = 2 sets of the previously described and one set of KC rounds.

Yeah Ive been debating weather or not to lock it or leave it open. But I decided that I can scare away all the wanna be thugs away if I lock it. I left it unlocked when I first got it and I had it broken into 3 times. Now that it's locked haven't had any(knock on wood). Oh yeah and j never leave anything important in my jeep

I just switched from Geico to State Farm and saved $45 a month for better coverages with $0 deductible. I'll see if I can talk my wife into putting the savings in a Jeep fund

While not technically today. I did add a Daystar 1.75 budget boost to it yesterday. Took a bit of effort but finally got it done as the sun was going down yesterday. Probably about 4-5 hours to get it done.

Before lift





After





Today I did add a Spiderwebshade trail mesh. I picked it up used here on the forum. I think I am going to like it.

I clay bared my Jeep and they waxed it. I will probably put on another coat tomorrow. We will see how much time it takes to do my Tundra. Then I am help a buddy rebuild a transfer case for his 81 CJ. I also used some truck bed liner on my tail light covers.
