Meh, didn't do anything special to her today. For some reason I really miss my old ZJ though.



93 ZJ Laredo 5.2 V8, only had 97k on it when it got totaled by a drunk driver. Garage kept too, no rust anywhere. Sucks to lose your first car after only having it three months to the day, that was last April.

Not today, but still counts... got an aussie installed in my 8.8 a few days ago. Had the convenience of being able to wait overnight for the lock-tight on the center pin screw and RTV on the cover to cure. The Aussie pins still worry me on these things though, they're very small and I'm wondering how they'll handle 35s. Nice to finally be locked again!

Did a look over and noticed that someone tried to slash my passenger tires. Luckily, they failed and only made it through the outside black layer so now the white lettering layer is slightly showing. Mother****ers.

Over the past week I've installed a new roof rack, side mirrors, TJ gas bezel and a new IAC valve which helped my idle issue.

Is that the Ebay rack? How do you like it?

Yeah, it's okay. It's kind of small but for $100 it's not bad. I planned on throwing my spare up there to make more room inside but can't think of a good way to mount it.

Here's a back angle of the rack and a close up of the TJ bezel. I need to do some more trimming and another coat of paint around the gas cap, but it turned out better than I thought it would.

Not what I did to it but plan on doing. My friend has a part out xj, he took basically everything already. I took the seats and the hood vent. I'm going to put the front seats in my rear and I need an idea what to do with the vent. No ideas yet so please chime in. I'm also taking the front axle to clean up and hopefully sell.
