Also found out my front upper control arm bushings are worn after 4 months. Very unhappy with rough country.

I removed my Air Intake, and man... It was dirty, so I washed it out and cleaned it, I bought some Throddle cleaner and cleaned all around it. Now the Jeep Puuuuurrs like a dream

Also bought a complete new set of Spark Plugs. Installed and great improvement.

Now next is to do my Brakes on my own, also do a few cheap mods like Adding Spot lights on my Rail Bar on the roof, and a couple Fog lights under the Bumper.

Repaired My Spare air tank! Sure its mainly for when I scuba dive, but its goes with me Off road And sits up on the ZJ dash when I am out wheeling and I know I will be around deep water crossings.

People get a kick out of it when they see it, That's normally Just after they ask me what the snorkel is for. I sure hope I never have to use it on the trail, or off the trail. What can I say, I have seen a Jeep flop in the water before.

We dont have a socket big enough for the pitman arm. We disconnected the drag link and we're gonna pull the steering box now and get the arm off somehow haha

Finally got my bumper finished up enough to mount it, looks awesome, love it


Now for the big question, paint it green (same as truck), black (spray paint, so I can touch up scratches and **** easy) or herculine it (which I would hate to do with all the beautiful welding on it lol)???
