Your rig is looking sweet by the way.
Please don't go to the Legion, Tim...we are going to the Elk's Lodge at Noon

Props to discount tire in Rio Rancho, off Unser. I went in today because I noticed a nail in my rear passenger and am having to add air every few days to my front passenger. They said the nail in the rear was a little close to the sidewall so they would replace it for free and also replaced my front because they said there was a questionable mark on my sidewall. Very quick and hassle free service! They have always been good to me!

Tires are 33x12.5x15 Duratracs. They also went ahead and did a rotation and balance for me.

*note- I do have certs on the tires because of them being for offroad.

Yesterday in RR I saw a JK(?) headed west at 528 and Southern. It had 2 rotopax fuel cells mounted on the right side of the spare tire. Wrong lane at the time to give chase. Couldn't really tell, (too quick) if it was an aftermarket rear bumper or what. Anybody else seen this particular Jeep and know what kind of setup he is running for the fuel cells?

He was at the Cars N Coffee last weekend. Keep missing his name but they are plastic cans stacked 2 on each side. They mount like the rotopacks. It's a red JK with a Ripp Supercharged 3.8L. Good guy.

A good dust with a nice touch of icy roads. Sprinkled with a heavy dose of wrecked vehicles.

Okay so my 98 tj started making this noise last night. I have no idea what it could be. I've heard everything form the drive train to the catalytic converter. This isn't my jeep in the video but it's make the same sound. Any help would be appreciated. http://youtu.be/InM49DqdUko

Sounds like a UFO in the video. How else would you describe it?

The nice weather the last couple days is making me want to put the soft top and tube doors back on...but I can't forget that we has snow last week! For those who run a soft top with the warmer weather, when do you guys make the swap? I was thinking I would wait until March but am getting a little restless...

Don't forget, we can get the coldest temps in late Feb to early March. A few years ago we got -31F at the end of Feb. I think it was 2011. I would wait to April.

I'm thinking now. If it gets cold again oh well give it a day or two and it will pass.
