Installed my b&m trans cooler and fixed a few leaks and did a quick cleanup of the undercarriage and went to Moab. Put a few new dents in it but its all repairable I suppose.

Thanks for the sick pics tom that was definitely a fun time I didn't leave there till midnight. Definitely gonna have to save those pics. After that adventure I've decided to get some 4.5" springs and ditch the puck up front hopefully the coil wont flop around as much and sound so atrocious!

I know the taller you go with re the softer the rate gets. The 3.5" are the stiffest they offer

Got sick of cracking my hubcaps everytime I wheeled so I shortened them 1 3/4" gave the wheel somewhat of a new look. I have yet to hit one since this little modification.


Hit the rocker hard enough to push the doors up and now my hinges are loose and it creaks going down the road.... Oops


Went for a ride up in mountains last weekend and had a ujoint cap lose a clip and walk its way out. This is axle shaft #3 that I've had the ears get wallored out guess I should get some alloy inners the outters are already alloys and haven't had an issue

Took pic after I pushed cap in with finger lost clip and used a cotter pin too get back to pavement only to find spare clip in my toolbox D'oh


Tonight I decided to fold in my quarter panels!




Getting new welder so hopefully I will be able to cut my rockers out and put my genright sliders on
