In the future I will probably do an SOA and get rid of the shackles. My immediate projects are new tie rod ends and a full polyurethane bushing kit. A lot of the rubber bushings are shot, and for 145 bucks I orderd a complete kit off ebay.

Newshoes

Put new wheels (15x10 DC1) and tires 35x12.5x15 Wrangler MT/R. Looks really good, just bought her two weeks ago. Since then I have realized that you really have to like these girls to keep them running. New manifold gasket, check- new starter, check- new holly carb, check- new hoses, check etc.....
Pissed off wife because of my new toy, check!

Tuffy Fender Lockboxes, Finally!!!

Ok, so I finally got my Tuffy Boxes installed on the wheel wells and consequently organized the entire rear portion of my YJ! This is going to look great when I get the herculiner in! One question: Who here thinks I should herculiner the Tuffy's to match the bed, probably black...?

Let's see, I swapped the Turdy-Five for an 8.8, bled the brakes, and now I have to reconnect the safety brake.

Replaced the tranny pan gasket that I pinched last week. Hopefully I can keep fluid in it for more than 24 hours now.

Wife drove it to work today. Put 17 gallons in it. I guess I have a 20 gallon tank...

Today I mounted my Craigslist sound bar and no door mirrors. Tomorrow I start the Rough County Lift, A to Z rock sliders and fender flair replacements and finally new white faces for the gages and all new days lights. Oh and out in the driveway are my 31x10.5x15 wildcounties to mount.

Walked past it, looked at it, said **** it, and then worked on my Monte like I said I was going to. I changed the oil, applied some silicone adhesive sealent to the old rubber on my t-tops to try to get rid of the leak, put some Kicker box speakers in the trunk behind the back seat, and tommorow, I'll be putting brake shoes on the *** end. **** the Jeep, it will sit some more.
