Used it to pull out my friend in a 2007 Dodge Ram. He decided to see what his stock wheels and tires could do. It performed pretty impressively till he reached a mud pit that went halfway up his doors. When I first took a look at it, I actually thought my ZJ didn't stand a chance of getting it out, but it sure did. Put on a new set of battery terminals and cleaned up the posts, hopefully that'll stop the darned security system that decides to act up because the terminals were loose.

Also decided I really need to address the steering. I'm debating on some sort of OTK setup, but I really need the "money fairy" to come and visit my house.

After hitting a raccoon on my way home at 3 am, I decided I needed to get some more light for night driving. I installed a cheap pair of wally world fog lights and decided to trim the bumper up some while I was at it. Now I'm just waiting for it to get dark to point the lights.

This weekend, I:

Installed a new starter- cranks up something fierce now!! Also, I replaced the parking brake shoes, and adjusted the star nuts so the parking brake holds in drive and reverse, even with gas. Now I can go pass my state inspection.


Also, while I was fiddling with the brakes, my son painted the antenna, antenna mount, and the wheel hubs flat black. lol they were rust-colored.

I just installed the KOR radiator support and cut back the bumper to clear the tow points. Then went out and got a little muddy in a field. I need to get the lockers before he first trail ride this spring.

Trying Paintmatch Paint

Applied the basecoat on a new front bumper cover and grill, trying to get my 95zj ready for the kids and street. It was an ebay buy
