Went out for a dinner date in the park with the wife and kiddo, snapped a photo-op.


Then I made a poolnoodle-ka-bob.


No pics of pool noodles shoved in there. I sprayed em black and you cant tell they are there hardly.

I put them everywhere with duct tape so the Jeep will float across river crossings.

Lol nah, front inner fenders to keep crud out of the door hinge area.

Thanks! And yes poolnoodle-kabobs are deliciously buoyant treats.

Anyhoo, got finishing touches done on the Jeep. Went ahead and threw a new rear driveshaft u joint in and rebent front brake hardlines to mount them lower. Then gave everything a good once-over and started packing everything.


Meeting up sometime in the AM and heading down to WBR for a weekend of wheeling. Ill try and get as many pics as I can, weather is supposed to be perfect.
