Got my tires mounted and balanced. Did an alignment and greased everything. Also took off my hard top and drove a while before putting on the soft top.

I really need to put in some nice seats though with 5 point harnesses.

Plasti dipped my classic 2's today. I wanted the military look with the light weight of aluminum. Very happy with the outcome!

Well what didn't I do today! Fixed door lock, cleaned up some rust on the frame, new sound bar speakers, and cut down my tube bumper so it doesn't look so hideous. Not bad for a Saturday.

I finished putting my 3.5" super lift and 1" shackles on my 94. Only ran into a few problems (rusted spring bolts and broke the brake line) but after a few days she's ready to go

Now I can't wait to put these on and I will be all done for now... That is until I save up for front and rear bumpers

Well, I finally pulled those MT baha claw's 31-10.5-15's and got some Wrangler p235-75r-105's. since we so rairly find anywhere to go off road, but gonna keep the MT's and mount on the old factory rims for a quick change option. Also swaped to the soft top and doors.

Think Spring Central New York..

Ack! the picture is sideways

I did the alignment. Toe in. Easy to do in about 20 minutes. You just measure the front and rear of the wheels with a tape measure and make sure the front of the tires are about 1/16" closer to each other then back of them. Then you adjust your draglink to center the steering wheel. There are a bunch of writeups on it.

I had plans on doing that this weekend to see if I could get rid of the rest of the wonder from the wheels.

you rounded the lugnut itself? must have been using the totally wrong size socket. but pretty much use a socket that you are possibly willing to sacrifice and hammer it onto the nut, then gun it off preferably

This, I run them down all the time with my impact but on the lowest setting it stops it at about 60-70 foot pounds. Then I have torque, should be about 100-115, that shop failed that clearly
