Sounds like a plan. Im still up in the air about what I wanna do there. My current switch is forward of the tcase lever so I can find it easily without looking. This all reminds me how much I hate running wire lol

Ooppzz, sorry mang.

In other news, didnt do any work today but put it to work instead. We bought our house last year. It isnt big but it (along with the rest of the subdivision) is only 7 years old, and the PO decided to never do any landscaping. We planted some shrubs and whatnot last summer, but that was about it. So today I loaded up 9 bags of pea gravel in the back and began. Then after that, thanks to Pinterest Im sure, the wife wanted creek rock to do the edging. I knew just the spot. Forgive the lack of technical info, but these pics show just how my XJ fits the lifestyle and that may be even better. Or maybe Im drunk.

PICZ *****ES








Couple pics of the pooches and the house in there. Nothing too crazy but dont hate, im in my mid 20's and they are all mine so Im happy haha.

Yep, makes it much better!


In other news, weather still sucks but got a thing or two done.

With warm weather approaching (surely) it will be time for my favorite offroad park locally to open up and host weekend long rides/camping. So if Im going to have a stock bumper I at least need to trim it. So I hacked away and bedlined the F/R bumpers. Never been big on colormatched bumpers with black endcaps.

It is fact from recent builds of mine that the use of bedliner and minor body mods are what happens right before I start hacking away haha. Hoping it doesnt come to that yet. I am pretty content with the 31's for the time being.

Currently Im planning a wheeling trip for the summer that should be a nice test of it all. Trying to set up for a trip to Turkey Bay OHV at LBL. Idea is to drive it down (2 1/2 hours one way), live out of it all weekend, wheel it, and drive it back home (hopefully) in one piece. Got a lot of maintenance work before then though, so no big rush to boot the 31s yet. Take it easy on my lil tires guys, at least they arent mall tread haha.

Finally changed my oil, it was definitely past due. Also did some heavy degreasing while I was at it. I know my oil filter adapter is leaking some, just curious how much. Everything was pretty clean overall though. Didnt take much cleanup.


Also took my daughter to the park for her to play around and my wife snuck in a shot of me and the Jeep.


Til next time...

Autozone brand degreaser! Believe it or not it did fantastic, i sprayed on everywhere and let it sit for a half hour then sprayed with a hose. Let idle after that and its all nice and clean. No gunk on the oil filter side of the block. Not sure I remembered what that looks like lol

Heres a shot from underneath, Weeder. My oil pan has always been pretty clean but the oil filter adapter and starter were genuinely caked. Everything cleaned up great, no elbow grease required.
