I smashed two fingers in one week. One changing the front diff oil, the other cutting some steel with a miter saw. Not chop saw, miter saw. My ******* was hurting for 2 Weeks and had both nails deformed for months....

Washed it and then waxed it for the first time; looks 100X better than it did before, and got rid of a lot of the fine scratches. Also did some paint touchups, and fixed a few ods and ends.

It works along WITH the pedal. Use either or. When crawling it's easier to use the lever rather than the pedal so as not to "mash" it and cause that surging/jerking motion.

Tranny is slipping more and more, starting to roll backwards if trying to go up an incline after being at a complete stop.

Took the tip off (that's what she's said) no more nerves, finger nail rotted off 3 times before staying

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

Went to the jy to look around. Ended up pulling an alternator out of a 96-98 v8 since they are higher output. But it says remanufactured on it, and I just looked up the part number, and it looks like its a 90 amp

Federal Couragia M/T's on Procomp Steelies, np231 swap, IRO Hack n Tap SYE, Carolina Driveshaft, 4.5 in. lift, RE front upper/rear lower ca's, RC front lowers, Ironman rear uppers, IRO 4.5 coils in rear, 3.5 and 2" bb (no isolators) in front, Bilstein 5100's, Clayton/JKS adj. track bars, KOR rad support and SS, Magnaflow/Flowmaster exhaust, clear corners, custom light bar w/ Hella 500's
