Not exactly my cup of tea.. But at least it's a clean looking jeep. Like a cross between a niner and an srt8. I gotta say that I straight up hate the hood though.

I was thinking the same thing. It looks like an SRT-8 before its time. The hold is f-ing hideous though. I do like the grill on it. It's a unique customization.

Installed my CB where my junk pioneer used to be. Installed a new accessory outlet. Installed my inverter. And got rid of a Hornets nest (in the gas filler door), that I found when putting some gas in it.

Got a new delco battery today. My old napa needed a charge everytime to get er going.

Got a Mopar TPS ordered today. Will be able to pick up at the dealer tomorrow.

Installed my 50x4 amp, now that I have the new battery. My planet audio speakers now sing

During this whole process I found a 285/75/16 yokohama geolander w/ 40% tread left for a trail spare for free.

brought it back form my old apartment to my new one. The woman who parked a Yaris behind it came back from vacation only to go back again about six hours later. Good job she left the key this time or I would've been very unhappy!
Now I need to swap my front upper CA bushings, sway bar bushings, engine harness, fuel pump, get the exhaust either welded or straight piped and go wheeling on Friday!!! Woo hoooooo!!!

I had a trutrac installed a couple of days ago, and had my rear trackbar bracket welded. Thank you to Danny at D&S Autoworks in Santa Paula, CA - great shop.
Today, I flushed my cooling system. Stupid 5/16" square engine plug. The tool doesn't exist to get this out. Tried to use a steel key stock, but it wasn't strong enough and failed. So I just did a really good flush without removing the plug. Genius, whoever came up with that plug design.

I installed some new Infinity speakers recently, and apparently they were too much for my cheap receiver. There is now no sound.


grrrr
