Well I finally get to say it.... I WHEELED IT!!!! All weekend at the dunes and it did amazing for what it is, made it up some dunes that I really had my doubts on and scared the hell out of my girlfriend. Need to extend the brake lines though since I was using the front brake lines as limiting straps :-/ best part of the weekend was today though when I had to pull 2 of my buddies off the beach, one of them was in a Chevy 1500 with a 4-5k lbs trailer and the other was a Chevy 2500 with a 3-4k lbs trailer, such a good feeling!

Ordered my MCE Flatty Fenders today. They're currently re-tooling, so they won't be ready until March, but I wanted to get my name on the list so I don't have to wait any longer. Can't wait for these to get here. Now I have to change the bumper. Got on in mind already.

Only dug down once an all I did was back up, fill in the holes, dig the trailer out a little, then put it in 4low and take a different line, I think one of my buddies has two videos of me pulling the 1500 I'll try and get them and post them

The tj wrap around style is definitely nice. Just realize that if you're bashing that exhaust regularly you're darn near bashing the oil pan. May be time for some upgraded skids.

While researching ax5 fluid today, I realized my tranny hasn't shifted very good since 1993, when I took it to a Jiffy Lube and had them change that fluid. Wonder what they put in there? Can't believe it was the fluid all this time. I even asked my professional mechanic after the fact and he said I needed a new clutch.
That fluid hasn't been replaced since then. Have ordered one gallon redline MT. Here's hoping...

Starter was sounding sluggish, so I pulled it and broke it down completely. Gave it a good cleaning. Some parts were worn a little, so it will need replacing sometime, but not in the near future. Starts up like a brand new one now. Can't believe cleaning it helped it that much. Now on to boring the intake for the 4.0 TB swap.

Used it to pull my dad's truck and a trailer full of scrap iron out of a muddy spot he got stuck in.
It's nice and muddy here today but I don't know if I feel like using my gas to go play in it...

Inspired by a buddy in our club, decided to make a dash platform for mounting gps, phone, camera, and whatever else I can think of.

Originally didn't have to drill any holes at all, just mounted to the windshield bolts. Ended up drilling and tapping the windshield frame for a couple extra bolts to support it.
