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

A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.

starting my OD paint job, took off the hood, prepped it, painted it, took off the doors, prepped it, painted em. Started taping off parts i dont want painted. Removed the tailgate, started stripping it of the brake light, spare tire holder.

Painted my bike rack OD. Cant wait till im done painting so i can just drive it already.. damn.. But it keeps raining and i cant paint in my garage..

Spineless, and mindless, You flex your muscles but not your F***ing head..

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.
