Picked it up from the paintshop. Inspected the gleaming work and got it to drive away with a smile on my face but the battery was dead...well, it was 6 years old! Replaced it with a Bosch heavy duty battery and hit the road :-)

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
looks great. I replaced both lens for 37.00 off ebay

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.




Floors me that the price difference from the 33 mt/r and 35 mt/r at tirerack is 2 dollars. Makes me really think about trying 35s rather than going with 33s.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Agreed. Problem right now is finding either one. Looks like once you get claytons LAs and the 8.8, you'll be ready for the 35s.

Also got my JK rear upper control arms delivered today and got them installed up front.

Pic shows the stock OEM arms, the junk that was on there from the PO that had Heims that were shot, and the new JK arms.
That looks like a Laredo bumper? But I could be wrong. How did you paint it?

On topic: took her fishing.

Pressure washed mine. I'm lovin it being 80 out I can actually do somthin to it. I'm pretty sure the previous owner his daughter drove it. And some highschool kids got crazy with window paint. It's on the weather striping and wont come off. Some is on the paint and it will come off but the paint does too.i got most of the bad spots off the windows. Some smaller stuff is still there. Oh well. This weekend I'm gonna take it thru the car wash and get the works.haha. It does look kinda good now.i didn't think it was that bad till I got done and was like wow.lol
