RED JEEP CLUB # 295
3.5"black diamond lift
33" kumho venture m/t
walked outside the hotel in Greenville, MS to find my pass. side rear window pulled off and my 'ready bag' full of environmental response type stuff along with my tool kits is G O N E, gone. Right now Im waiting for the security supervisor to get here for a report.
Update to this one... on the way home I got this MAJOR vibration doing about 70mph, so my first thought was that a tire was coming apart. Upon further inspection, whoever stole my ready bag also stole my duffel outta the back with a jack, 4way lug wrench, 2 pairs of gloves, a 20' tow strap and my Haynes manual.
Apparently they also "thought" about my chrome wheels... there's my vibration!!! all 5 lugnuts on the left front were 1 thread from being gone and the wheel beat the hell outta the studs. And it enlarged the holes on the wheel so much that I have to get a new wheel... Im just glad it didnt come off doing 70mph...
But all is not lost... it was a company trip so it's being handled on my employers insurance company and I get all new stuff...
this past weekend i replaced my worn out front springs with 2" lift springs and reworked the entire front suspension (turned the shock mounts up, cut off all unneccessary bracketry i.e. track bar bracket)...... it sits 4" higher....plus S.O.A.
today i installed this.... http://www.jb4x4.com/products.htm it is actually pretty beefy and a very nicely built product. it beats a $500 dollar kit....which i can't afford.... just got married and am moving in 2 weeks.

Had my emergency brake recall done at the stealership, naturally the guy didnt know about the fuel pump ground so when he couldn't get it started again I stood there and laughed for a few minutes before I told him about it. Then it took him another 20 minutes to find it
Have to go back though, they are covering all the cables back to the wheel but they didn't have them in stock.
Today I opened the box that was on my porch this AM when I left for class. It was my PSC tube fenders, I then told her just how sexaaaaay she was gonna look when I get 'em put on. I also put a couple PSC and Q-Tec stickers on her.
