Drove her to work for the first time in months. Feels good to have her running again! Stupid dome fuse...

Drove in some mud, good sized ruts, slicker than snot mud and wet leaves mixture. And that was just going back up my washed out driveway after going to buy some catfood and pepsi's.
My wife has brought up the subject of paving the driveway or maybe concrete. I told her it is much cheaper to pull the lever back than it is to pay for asphalt and concrete. She agreed as long as I drag a blade across it every so often just so the neighbors don't think we are hillbillies or something worse they might think we are yankees that don't know any better.
today? nothing yet. I'm home from work for the next couple days.
I dropped my YJ tailgate on my foot yesterday in the garage and broke me big toe.
Last summer I was taking my doors (full steel) off before I left the house, I was wearing flip-flops and dropped one of the doors on my little toe. I thought it had cut it clean off, but suprisingly no break that I ever noticed. Man that hurt like a mofo.
"Beat it like it owes you money"
Today I put together my wish list for my Jeep and decided that when I'm finished, it's going to be one hell of a money pit... Lift, armor, probably new axles and what not, then upgrade to bigger tires, etc, etc, etc...
got the beadlock basically done on my spare tire. (its already off the rig, so it was the easiest, and its my spare so if i mess it up the first time, no big deal)
Got the synthetic winch line and Delrin fairlead rollers installed as well as the tough stuff winch safety thimble
i think im going to start working on a new overhead console today since i have enough scrap metal laying around. I want to get going on the fuel cell and cage and seats, but i'm too broke to go buy all the steel right now
