Putting vent visors on it. The girlfriend comments "You should paint then to match the snorkel. Or just paint it pink/purple/grey and white camo."

WTF?!

Edit: so excited to be able to air out the Jeep without worries of rain.

Called the local steel supply. $108 for a 20ft 2"x4" rectangular tubing 3/16 thick. This would be good for the horizontal bumper section and to replace the rockers with, right? I've got 1/4" plate to make the bumper mounts and 1-1/2 tubing for the slider-to-unibody brackets.

If this works well I may start knocking out some simply functional aftermarket armor parts. Fe once I have the time money and tools to get stuff done.

Well I went to Walmart the other day and accidentally left my headlights on came out 20 minutes later and battery was dead! Not even a year old and battery died, got a jump start went to one Autozone but they were closed stopped at another Aautozone they couldn't help me test the system out because their battery testers were broken, I told them what had happend and I said i don't trust my jeep to start tomorrow to come and drive all around to find another Autozone so the manager looked up when I purchashed the original battery and he told the clerk to pull a new battery and install it in my Jeep, Tthe clerk started to question the manager and he just said just pull it and give him a new battery! Come to find out the battery I was sold last augest wasnt' quite what my Jeep took so he upgraded my battery with a 800CCA with a 1000CCa Reserve. so I got the new battery for free. Came home no problems with battery or charging system now. Today I had to replace the drivers side motor moount and tomorrow having all 4 ball joints replaced. for a grand total of $80.00! now that's a hell of a deal LOL

Nah, its my newly installed hack n tap sye. The seal doesn't seem like its tight up against the yoke, which I guess its not because almost all the atf in my t-case took up new real estate on the entire underbody of my jeep, as well as the driveway, and probably all around town too.
