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

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
