Went wheeling with my brother. Got stuck in a nice, deep hole and filled up the passenger floorboard with 2 inches of water! Whatever had been clanging from time to time finally broke. Yeah me! Now I have to figure out how to break the axle nut loose. I feel like a real Jeep owner now!

Had a headlight burn out on me the other night so I replaced them both with sylvania something or others. They are noticeably brighter. Also restored the headlight, got that yellow crap off. Should took a picture, I didn't, does this mean it didn't happen?

Yes. Without pics, it's all lies.

Pulled out an 04 F150 that was wedged in a creek bank on both bumpers. Both a 3/4 ton chevy and an F250 diesel couldn't do it and snapped 2 straps. Hooked it up to mine, popped it in 4lo, let out the slack and it lifted his rear tires off the ground, bounced down and pulled it up the bank. The tires only slipped once pulling it out.

Drove it back up to Rochester and determined that I definitely gained about 1mpg highway from the cap swap, etc.

Not sure if I should go ahead and order some Morimoto Bi Xenon projectors with the Cyber Monday sale at TRS. $90 for the Mini H1 with shrouds or 80+15 for the Mini D2S with shrouds.

I pulled out my sub to make room for all the parts for it. I'm bringing it to my buddy's shop today to begin the work on it. Front control arms, wheel bearings, brakes, diff fluids, trans fluid/filter, t-case fluid, valve cover gaskets, output pinion seals on the t-case, rear swaybar bushings, oil change, and possibly my high flow cat depending on how adventurous we feel if welding needs to take place.

I bit the bullet and ordered D2S projectors for my Jeep. I already have a set of D2S ballasts and bulbs so I just have to modify the headlight lens and I'm good.

I'm thinking I'm just going to sand a circle in the center of the lens till it's crystal clear and leave most of the lens diffused. Should look more OEM.
