i sewed up the gaping hole in my soft top with fishing line in preparation for winter. then cut off the busted *** exhaust pipe from the muffler back and welded on a 90° turn down...keeps the fumes out even with a few drain plugs missing lol. one of my u-joints is fixing to give out, i should probably fix that next before i catapult my jeep on the highway.

This weekend I replaced all the brake hardware and pads on the right rear, fixed my parking brake, checked trans fluid level (was fine), checked Xfer case fluid level (needed about 1/2-2/3 Qt.), changed air filter, fixed a vacuum leak, tried adjusting my choke linkage so the choke works (failed), and installed a cheapo CD player so I can have some tunes.

I built a drawer for the back of the jeep that I can keep my tools, booster cables, straps, chains, comealong, and all my other crap in and still keep the back of the jeep looking fairly clean. It came out reallly nice and I like it alot already.

I repaired a smashed rear passenger side lower shock mount. Landed that bad boy on a big rock, looked like a crumpled beer can. Been driving for 4 weeks with a shock & mount zipped tied up and out of the way. A little heat, hammer, weld, and some paint; it's good as new. Oh, and new U-bolts while I was there.
The YJ is no longer my DD. I have sacrificed all future retirement plans for jeep parts. I'm depending on social security!
