Uhh, nothing. I treated the leather once a little while back. But if i see heavy rain coming I usually throw the doors on. If I'm already out then I have a towel in the back

Few flex shots from the other day, hopefully doing a little wheeling over the weekend.









Also ran out of gas on my way home from work, this picture is from my driveway, I was so close to being home

Bedlined lower quarter

So the cladding on my passenger side was struggling to stay on, and I got pretty tired of it continually falling off. So I ripped it all off, however once it was off it looked pretty bad with all these holes and studs sticking out everywhere. So after some grinding and bondo-ing I had this



Then after some bedline I got this



I think it looks pretty good, it blends great with the black on the Jeep, and now I don't have to worry with the cladding falling off.

Gotta shout out to my bro Taylor for taping the lines off, he got them spot on.





I'm thinking I'll go ahead and do the rear bumper to match

Looks good man! One of these days if I ever find the time to get my drive lines dialed in, I wanna take my cladding off and do some bed liner too. Looks way better IMO.

So I've been pretty busy lately, just started a new job that is very time consuming, however it pays a lot better so that is a plus, new Jeep parts should be on the way soon

I finally got around to fixing some things: new power steering pump, new windshield to replace my spider webbed one and my favourite thing, brand new oem headlamp lenses (not cheapo ebay ones either) thanks to Kolak I thought about doing some sort of after market headlights, or the glass ones, but honestly I don't need fancy lights, just functional ones.

Windshield


Old


New


Also made a little bit of progress on my engine, hopefully will get more done tomorrow since I'm off


http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/5...5-2-a-2437265/

I made a new thread for my engine rebuild if anyone wants to check it

Mine was about 235k when I got it. Make sure you check up on all of its maintenance and fix any problems you have. Budget wisely and have fun! These Jeeps last awhile if you take care of them.

Oh for sure man, some people buy these 6k adjustable beds, man those suckers are heavy! But I get a few minutes to breath in between deliveries so it's not to hard. It's a lot better then fast food

Pshhh tell me about it. One of my jobs is at a movie theater. Giving customer service to the general public (especially in milwaukee) sucks. Plus its a corporate company (AMC) so here comes all the rules and sales requirements blah blah blah.

Other 2 jobs are based off of labor. I clean a grade school at night and during breaks plus I help a family member (a land lord) with his properties. In school to be an electrician though. One more semester before I start an apprenticeship!
