Wow, replaced my Heat Control Unit. The plastic pin to connect the vent slider cable to busted off during the summer. The dealership was asking over $150 for the control unit.... but I finally found one on eBay for cheap. $40 after shipping.

What a ***** to replace, but it's good now!

What is that thing that people say after they break something on the trail.... "Oh, I needed to upgrade anyways"
Well thats what I feel like after attempting the front flares today. It was cold, and kinda windy and since I was cold I hurried more than I sould have. No matter how I clamped them onto my fenders to trace where I needed to cut they just didn't look right but I got it as close as I could. Well Out came the sawsall no turning back now. After cutting and drilling holes I started bolting the flare up and I decided it was gonna look like crap so in disgust i pulled it off and started putting up my tools...........What is the moral of this story Kenny, you might be thinking....Well if you want to get better tires just go outside and sipe your present tires with a sawsall ! If you want a new soft top go outside and try to clean it with a sawsall!

At least I get to upgrade.....IM GETTING TUBE FENDERS YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rhinolined mine this weekend. I got creative and continued the bedliner out the door, and down the side of the jeep, under the doors, since it was all scratch up, because everytime a girl tries to get in they are too short and kick the side, so I figured it would help and look cool, and serve some protection in the trail. I am cutting out my motor mounts tomarrow, and figuring out so wiring for the 350.

Dropped out the gas tank, and replaced a fuel main yesterday. Talk about a son of a biatch. The bolts in the front were rusted, so we had some fun with that. Works great now.

Installed a new security system (heavy chain and lock, steering wheel to seat frame) and finally got around to the 15 to 20 gallon gas tank conversion.

got my engine that I transplanted from my wrecked ZJ into my YJ started, thank goodness for friends that are brilliant in the electronic/electric field and enjoy a challenge. I hate wiriing harnesses, and ecm's.

I replaced me rear U-Joint and strap, and switched out my head lights with some sylvania superstars. I also had to re-aim my bumper lights after bending my bumper a bit wheeling.
