I cut my front bumper in half and then I built a 2 inch front receiver for my ZJ. I used parts that I salvaged from a 1 inch adjustable receiver that I bought from a yard sale for $5 and bought a 6 inch long 2 inch receiver for $12 at a welding shop. Now I can put my winch on the front or back my boat into some tricky areas where I fish. SWEET!!!

Got the blank keys cut for free. The left key is correct...no wonder the lowes copied keys (right) didn't work!
Also got the elusive PCV grommet from jeep, but couldn't get it installed. Too damn stiff.

Cleaned it (is that sacrilege?)... well, I had a nice little asian boy spend an hour vacuuming, washing, soaping, rinsing, drying and waxing... for $5. Bargain!

Nice young fellah - found two screws in my front tyre that were the source of my slow puncture - had that fixed, for about $6.50.

I love it here!

Lug nuts were tight.

Not so much as the car that almost ate my 265/75/16 tire did. xD

replaced front sway bar bushing and end links. talk about a PITA when the bolts are so rusted on that even PB Blaster wouldnt help losen them up. ended up cutting the bolts off with a cut off disc and putting in new grade 8 bolts WITHOUT the stupid torx head that comes on them from factory

Verified my suspicion that my motor mounts and tranny mounts were shot today. Total destruction is the best description for their condition...
