Trust me, it is a pain you never want to experience.
when i worked at a chevy dealer we had these creepers built into the floor so we didnt have the use the lift when just changing the fluids in the drivetrain, i was servicing a transfer case, and the owner neglected to tell me that he had broken the fill plug once, so he got the broken end out and just used the 1 or 2 threads on the other end after he checked his fluid, so basically the fill plug had 2 threads on it, so needless to say, fluid went everywhere, and since i was on a creeper on a fixed rail, i had nowhere to go, got fluid in my eyes, got out from under the truck, flipped my boss the bird and drove to the hospital, i told the doc i could see but since it was a fluid lubricating moving metal, there might be shavings, he said there most certainly was, luckily it wasnt high velocity, but they put me on a bed, held my eyelids open with these saw movie contraptions, and dripped water into my eyes for 4 hours, not much pain involved, but deffinetly like torcher

I got the interior of the Jeep detailed. Shampooed the carpet, roof liner, floor mats and more. Then I took some pics bc they washed the Jeep up nicely too.

While the Jeep was getting detailed, one of the detail shops outside vendor came by and wanted to test one of their new products on a plastic yellowed headlight. So my Jeep was the guniea pig. I'm mad bc they only did the one headlight.. WTF.. Seriosly.. See my last pic. you can tell which one got cleaned

Looking good there Badbird! You're making me consider getting bigger tires

Since we're on the pic thing, here's what I've had done over the past few days.... finally got em mounted yesterday. Now for final alignment adjustments, and need to polish the rear wheels



60% or so tread left on this 35" BFG AT. The Goodyear 35" are definitely taller. Makes a difference getting in and out of the vehicle and I can't wait to take my wife to lunch. She already has problems getting in.

I finally remove the rear bump stop extensions that I installed along with my RE BB. They were a pain. I'm so used to air tools... I smashed my ring finger between the ratchet and the upper rear arm when one of the bolts broke loose. It was all good though because my finger instantly became numb so it didn't hurt one bit. After I finished that up, I decided to change my oil. Well, that went well. First of all, every time I do it, I want to slap the A hole in the face who decided putting the oil filter right above the exhaust was a good idea. There isn't a way to get the filter off without getting oil all over the exhaust and the ground. If there is, I have yet to figure it out. Secondly, my oil cap decided to keep spinning in the valve cover. Of course I figure this out after I drained the engine of all the oil. I ended up breaking off the top part by pulling pretty hard on it then using vice grips clamped around the outer edge of what was left to remove the cap. It worked. Now I have to go and get a new cap from Advance...
