Put in headlight bulbs and put on my thrush muffler yesterday. Sounds way better then the one chamber muffler that I had.

Today, I changed the oil and upgraded to the 1515 oil filter

The cooper stt are amazing tires. I've been running them over a year now and they're great for everything from freeway driving to mud and snow. Only issue us when you run across gravel you catch a few and throw them later on down the road.

Pulling the cover on the 8.8, experts, if it is LSD should I even bother replacing the friction disks or doubling them up? I have to get off the rusted on brakes first before I can even make sure the axle spins but yeah.

With 35s, I'd probably go for a locker. If you can get an LSD rebuild kit cheaply enough and want to try doubling up the clutch disks, it'll certainly be better than an open diff, but may or may not be good enough.

I used the same leather cleaner for the first time last week, sure makes it easier to slide out of your jeep!

Installed new factory motor mounts today and spent far too much time running around for other things.
