Fri. Night: Took it mudding, buried it and almost flipped it once but never got stuck never even needed 4lo Then it got real bad death wobble on the way home.
Sat. Morning: Washed the underside to get rid of the death wobble (lots of mud in my wheels).
Today: did a full wash outside cleaned most of the mud out of the interior.

Last night I worked on my rear diff skid with a fellow NWIJ member. He's been helping me with my cutting and welding needs. It's almost done!

Spent most the day yesterday in the jy hunting parts, got a fender and all the lights for the driver corner and grabbed a new latch for the liftgate to fix that tie wire rig for good. Headed back today to a diff yard to get a front panel with only one break in it where the grill will hold it together. And fixing to order a new charcoal box since mine had a piece of the bumber driven through it.

Last night I broke down and decided to take it to a local 4 wheel shop and have them check out my front suspension and what not to see if they could point me in the right direction to gettin the death wobble fixed. They told me my axle side steering stabilizer busing is blown out and so are both shock bushings along my frame side trac bar bushing. I never would have thought to check out brand new bushings for this issue. Going to call IRO today and see if they might hook me up with new TB bushings since the whole lift is less than a month old and if not ill just order them along with new shock bushings, bar pin eliminators and probably a whole new steering stabilizer then cross my fingers and hope that gets er all dialed in and wobble free.

I also painted her tow hooks white, so they look like fangs

Pics or ban!

OT: got the front panel from the jy, picked up the paint for the fender....something else.....

Oh yea pulled the trigger on jcr DIY bumber with some 3/4 shackles. Entered jeepforum in the coupon box on a whim and poof,...free shackles! Good day so far.

Rain stopped, let's see if we can get that rear latch to work!
