Plan for the weekend is to get the fenders tacked?? and start on the bumper. Hopefully I get the time to at least get the bumper extensions tacked and cut to length.

Got a new toy..............Pro Mig 140 from Lowes

JCR looks like the ticket for XJ skids! Good choice! My GTS is a cheapo and you know I love it. Nothing like knowing your gas tank is safe!

Wheelin Hard takes its toll on stock stuff.......looked underneath last night at my Jeep and My oem t/c crossmember is buckled towards the body and it took the frame with it....oh hail so Ima use the T/C as a big pry bar and try and unbolt and bend the spot close then bolt up my newest expense............

http://www.tntcustoms.com/hdreplacementcrossmember.aspx

couldnt quite swing pickin up the whole belly pan because that would require me to go to the SYE which in turn cost me $$$ for a d/s because I already have a SYE case just need a shaft.


$423 in the past 2 days....OUCH!
