What did you do to your XJ/MJ today?

seriously, one of these threads needs to stay alive in the XJ/MJ section and what better time to get a real one going then now with the creation of the XJ/MJ GD. now, lets keep this going.

for me, all i did today was take pictures of my newly cut front bumper.

picture a few posts down.

Put a scratch on my bumper today, stupid neighbor left their garbage cans that are lower than the hood of the jeep right in front of the jeep's normal parking spot on the street. Was really not expecting that crushing sound.

Received my BPE's and rear bumpstops last night, new OME shocks come in tomorrow. I was going to pull my door trim and possibly try the removable door mod last night, but then we got some killer thunderstorms and a tornado warning to go along with it. Garage is full of cars so I guess I'll have to wait til later this week to try anything.

Also made plans to get my rig re-geared and locked in the back. Not looking forward to spending $900 on parts and possibly a few hundred more on install for something I won't even be able to see lol.

Replaced the siezed rear wiper motor with one I got at the J/Y for $5. Rear wiper now works like a charm. Plan on crawling under the heep and installing my Bruce Built transfer skid as soon as the rain let's up.

I'm about to head out the door to go pick up my new front hub bearing units. So, in a couple hours I'll be putting those on.
Hopefully this will finally take care of the last of my vibe issues.
