You mean that you are suppose to WAX a Jeep?? I can not find that in the Jeep Bible.

What you mean you don't want to drive up here to Columbus? Only about a 10 hour trip

Yeah I made the mistake of painting it already without thinking about any welding that still needs done to the brackets that I haven't fashioned yet

well, considering the faded red looked pink (not cool), she really needed it. Plus, I like her to look good, and that means dirty off-road, and clean on road. A year of a pink Jeep is too long for me, now she's red, just like from the factory!

And to keep it on topic, today I fixed a slow leak in the rear passenger tire (how did I puncture a TSL Swamper??), And broke my friend's tire iron trying to get the driver's front tire off to rotate. Sheared it off right at the end. Oops.
