That sounds like advance here.

Speaking of doorless, replaced my upper driver door hinge pin and bushings yesterday. New dealership parts. Huge difference.

Now that I know how easy it is to take the doors off I see some halfdoors in the green ones future.

Ohhh she got treated... Spent the day at autozone and the JY...
New 3rd brakelight bulb(and a quiet VIC again), new shift indicator bulb, nice replacement rear wiper arm off a purple donor jeep, pulled the cowl and wiper arms and fixed my windshield wash squirt issue, got an overhead VIC display off a green donor to replace mine that had all the map switch mounts broke (and fabric was a pefect match but it mounted a little loose so gotta figure that out), grabbed a towing harness unit out of a green one, got a free pair of vice grips under the seat of the puple one....
And now made a list of parts to scavenge for next week :/) (like 3rd visor visors with garage remote built in, factory fogs with a switch, a 3rd roof rail, and any new trinket i can find ...lol)

She is happy for now and the whole day it never got over 18degF so i wasnt too happy but...

I changed her oil today. Took that junk Fram badge-made filter off and put a proper Mopar filter in there, along with some good Mobil 1. Finally found a use for my oil filter wrench. After the oil change, I hit the engine bay with some of that black magic engine shine stuff. I don't know if it worked or not. Oh well, $4, big deal.

And then I reset the VIC's miles-to-service counter. That's a neat little feature that.

Just gave her a good washing, I'm sure at the time I got plenty of salt off. However by the time I got to work it was already covered again. I wish I wasn't so broke and it wasn't so cold. Then I could at least replace my exhaust manifold. That noise is driving me nuts.

Got a new sticker to throw on

"aut viam inveniam aut faciam"

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

Hope you have bump stops that pretty much limit up travel to nothing. What do you plan to do about the extreme lack of steering due to the tires hitting pretty much everything lol

You don't need a lot of up travel. It's overrated. 4"-5" of up travel and a lot of droop work well. If there is metal in the way then remove it.

I agree, never said you did. Purely stated i hope he's limited to next to none since he has no room for much up travel. Chopping it to hell just makes it look like a POS, lift it to clear dont cut the hell out of it. Trimmed bumpers looks good, chopped fenders, quarter panels, rockers doesnt.
