Drove mine to work yesterday, still running the bikini/windjammer/duster combo. Stock worn-out springs and old Edelbrock shocks with no track or sway bar on the front equals kinda squirrely! But you can definitely feel what is happening up there through the wheel!
Went to Harbor Freight to get more weapons for my next round of battle with the rear track bar. 4-lb hammer and brass chisel, long-handle SAE open/box-end wrench set (with sizes over 1"), more work gloves, pry bar, wire wheels for the drill...
Since I took the driver side rear track bar nut off there is an occasional clunk from the rear. I bet the track arm bolt is shifting from side to side within its little hole occasionally.
Today I drove it again. Part of me wants to find something to climb to demonstrate flex...
That'll just help break it loose for tonight, when the rear track arm gives up and comes out

Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."
Recently got the brake lights, reverse lights and window washer pump workin as well as put in a cb for off roadin which happened last Sunday for the 1st time. Was on a trail marked with trees in the way and backed into one on the way in, that pushed in the drivers side tail light a bit. ON the way out i nearly ripped off the passenger side rear fender flare Stupid stumps n trees! LOL all in good clean fun!
I hear Princess Auto up here in Canada has sets of red l.e.d. brake lights that can be recessed into the rear body for a cheap 25 bucks and a 3 inch hole saw.
put magnetic sheets over the speaker slots in my tuffy boxes to make them a little more water resistant, at least to direct splashes of mud anyway. Also put the soft top and hard doors back on in leu of the bikini. Wanted to get to it now so it's not on my mind going into hunting season. Reorganized the tool boxes, made a little more room. Need to get the security drawer installed so as to open up my secure storage options. I'm building my own drawer mounts to elevate the drawer to an appropriate height to store weapons underneath.
