Threw on the safari top and full doors with the impending rain. Also found a windjammer in storage. Wonder how long I've had that...

They're a 35 lol.
I know they will though.

The PO put a 2.5" (I thought it was just a 2" but I actually measured it today...god I'm extra embarrassed of it now!!!! ) that I will be removing and dropping it down to a 1" Daystar. So it'll sit 1.5" lower than it is right now. Maybe I should just forgo the body lift for right now? I'm months away from being able to afford a tummy tuck so perhaps I can just pull the pucks out and replace the bolts with $10.00 worth of grade 8 and call it good for now?

Cheers

Cut your body lift down and just go with new bolts and skip the daystar lift. I think we figured out how to manufacture your own with a hole saw and $15 worth of plastic stock from Tapp plastics. I will get you guys some part numbers because I know you want to try it yourselves.

Found a huge slit in my heater hose as I rushed to pull my overheated jeep into a parking lot. Before stopping, it also managed to throw the serp. Belt. On top of that, I just took my tool box out of the back on the jeep this morning. Thank god for my $5 cabelas multi-tool lol

swung by Harbor Freight on the way home from work today to pick up a Dremel to do this:
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/tj-f...iy-196375.html
To Cynthia's Rubicon

I ended up buying $150 worth of needed items

Then I was hungry and went here:


While I was waiting for my pizza I had 15 minutes to burn so why not start playing with my new toys:


went kind of like this:

Yummm.. pizza!!!


ended up with:


I only forgot a double male end to connect the hose to the thingy that clips to the valve stem. Jonah gets all the credit for already building this contraption. I just copied his. Now I will be able to fill my tires and not have to switch from air gauge to filler hose and back and forth until the air pressure is right Thanks again Jonah for the idea.
