Wasn't bashing the method, just giggled when you said your Jeep isn't retarded. Reminded me of these kids and their "stanced" Hondas and stuff

Oh, man! If we didn't have an industrial pressure washer at work, I'd be keeping coin-op car washes in business by myself LOL



I love mud! It is a lot of work cleaning up afterward, though. I do it the very first chance I get, usually the very next day, because it can hide or cause a lot of problems. I hope to swap in an 8.8 this summer because replacing D35 shoes on a monthly basis can get old. I still have my internal slave AX15 because it looks like I can seal the bellhousing to keep most of the mud out, too.

My main 4-wheelin' partner is a 60 y/o woman with her own Jeep (in pieces in my driveway now while I do some work on it), who loves mud as much as I do. I'd probably marry her just because she doesn't freak out at mud on the floor or in the tub, if we weren't 16 years apart LOL. Plus she loves hiking, and snowshoeing in the winter. Hmmm...maybe FWB would work out LOL.

I met up with a couple friends at a local park and there were big trees laid in front of where you could park your vehicles...so of course I had to climb it lol well it was a little wet and I slipped off the back landing on my exhaust/leaf spring. I just parked it there as to not to draw too much attention but it was too late lol

The people there were hysterical! One lady started walking over from her mini van with her 2 sons and asked if I need a push before realizing I was on a tree bigger than my tires and then got all "Oh my god! are you ok? Did you not see that there?? etc" and some other people gathered around for a bit talking and laughing with us. One of those you had to be there moments I guess lol well anyways, it took a little maneuvering to get out but I did without a pull. My exhaust tore right below where the downpipe meets the manifold, other than that no real damage

The great uniting factor is that we are all jeepers at heart and are willing to help each other out even if its just a little. That's what the jeep wave is all about: community. The wave is the tip of the iceberg.

That silica stopper stuff works well. I just plugged up a gusher in a tractor with a bottle of it.

I finished installing my new slave last night. Man the clutch feels great now. It is nice to stop at a red light and know you will be able to find 1st gear when the light turns green.

Completed my TJ flare install and write up... now I think I have to go back and figure out how to properly install the rear flares to eliminate the overhang I got.

My son and I took it to classes last night. When we left the house it was a nice warm sunny day. Life is good... But the temp dropped 150 degrees for the ride home in the dark! Good thing the heater works well. topless/doorless

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!
Zombies hate fast food.
Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

Well Im not a fan of putting any form of stop leak in my vehicles but luckily I have a new radiator sitting at my garage Still weird that it didnt hit the winch, grill, hood or get anywhere on the radiator


And to add to the list, after reading someones post about upgrading their steering shaft, it got me to take a look at mine on lunch break Lets just say I found my steering play The ujoints in the shaft are both shot and the bearing retainer ring fell out and its just flopping around in there



Looks like my 8.8 and sye will be getting put off another month
